AFC West: Mciahel Huff

AFC West injury update

December, 16, 2011
A look at key injury situations in the division heading into Week 15:

Denver starting safety Brian Dawkins (neck) and starting cornerback Andre Goodman (concussion) were both limited Friday. Both players are listed as questionable to play against the New England Patriots on Sunday. Barring setbacks, expect both players to try to play. The Broncos will need the two players as they face the pass-proficient Patriots. Receiver Eddie Royal (concussion) is listed as probable. He missed last week’s game.

In Oakland, Raiders’ coach Hue Jackson said running back Darren McFadden (foot) and receiver Jacoby Ford (foot) are out as expected. McFadden has been hurt for seven weeks and Ford has been out for a month. Jackson said defensive tackle John Henderson (knee), safety Michael Huff (ankle) and running back Taiwan Jones (hamstring) are questionable. Cornerback Chris Johnson, who has been dealing with the death of his sister in Texas, is also out.

For Kansas City, safety Jon McGraw is doubtful with an ankle injury. Receiver Jon Baldwin and cornerback Javier Arenas both practiced fully after they sat out Thursday’s practice because they were ill. They are both probable to play.

In San Diego, linebackers Takeo Spikes and Donald Butler were limited in practice for the first time this week and they are listed as questionable to face Baltimore on Sunday.

Kansas City
  • Linebacker Derrick Johnson looks like he will not play on Sunday at San Diego unless he has an unexpected turnaround. He missed his second straight day of practice with a thigh injury that caused him to leave Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.
  • Safety Jarrad Page (groin) and cornerback Patrick Surtain (quad) also did not practice Wednesday or Thursday.
  • Defensive and Turk McBride was limited Thursday with a shoulder injury.
  • Punter Dustin Colquitt and cornerback Brandon Flowers practiced fully on Thursday.


  • Safety Michael Huff didn't practice because of a hip injury.
  • Running back Darren McFadden was limited in practice for the second straight day. He has missed the last two games with turf toe injuries on both feet. It looks like McFadden has a chance to play Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.
  • Quarterback JaMarcus Russell missed the end of practice Thursday with a knee injury. It's not believed to be serious.
  • Safety Gibril Wilson was back at practice Thursday. He has been dealing with a groin injury.

San Diego

  • Receiver Chris Chambers and cornerback Antonio Cromartie practiced on a limited basis Thursday after they both did not practice Wednesday. Chambers has been dealing with an ankle injury and Cromartie has a nagging hip injury.

OAKLAND - Halftime thoughts from Oakland:

The Raiders are killing themselves with penalties. They have been penalized eight times for 45 yards. One penalty nullified a touchdown pass from JaMarcus Russell to Zach Miller and another allowed the Jets to keep possession after a punting situation.

Even though he has been benched in favor of Hiram Eugene, Oakland safety Michael Huff is playing extensively.

The Raiders are blitzing often.

Oakland running back Darren McFadden still looks like he is slowed by a turf toe injury he suffered in Week 2 in Kansas City. He has 18 yards on four carries.

New York quarterback Brett Favre has completed 14 of 19 passes but for just 97 yards.

Former Raiders' quarterbacks George Blanda, Ken Stabler and Jim Plunkett participated in a halftime ceremony to honor Raiders' hall of famer Gene Upshaw who died after a short bout with cancer in August.
