Week 10 injury report: That's gonna leave a mark
Boldin is one displeased footballer. He's ticked at his coach for not being "man enough" to inform him he was inactive for Sunday's game. He's ticked with management because they won't sign him -- but they won't trade him -- and he's ticked at
Boldin will have a chance to unleash that anger on the undeserving Seattle secondary, as he looks poised for a limp-free Sunday. He practiced fully on Wednesday, and although the Cardinals know he won't be 100 percent healthy, they're hopeful an extra week of rest will enable Boldin to play the entire game, something he couldn't do in Week 8 or 9.
Turn away Westbrook owners, you don't want to read what's about to follow. Westbrook was held out of practice Wednesday, not because of the concussion that caused him to miss Sunday's game, but rather because of soreness in his surgically repaired ankle. According to
It will be hard to gauge his availability for Sunday based on practice participation, so prepare yourself for a morning of page refreshing and text updates to determine whether or not to employ Westbrook this week.

Brown practiced most of last week before missing Friday's session and Sunday's game. He wasn't mentioned on the injury report this week, and it looks like the rookie is ready to resume his role as offensive fireplug for the Colts.

Morris has missed the past two games after suffering what's believed to be a torn MCL against the Titans in Week 6. He hasn't practiced this week, but the
The Chaz is back! The long awaited return of
Sorry, I couldn't help myself. All sarcasm aside, Schilens' return from a broken foot should help Russell in the passing game. At 6-4 225-pounds, he's a big target with -- surprise, surprise -- game-changing speed. Schilens averaged over 15 yards a catch last season, and in his only preseason appearance this year, he hauled in five catches for 52 yards. Schilens isn't rosterable in anything other than the deepest of leagues, but his presence should at least be enough to free up
After missing Sunday's game, Bryant wasn't at the mid-week practice, and his availability is questionable for Week 10. At this point, being reliant on Bryant is a very risky proposition. His season high for receiving yards is 62, and the 2008 breakout star is averaging less than three catches a game.
With little to no practice time with new starter
