NFC West injury reports came and went Friday without a great deal of change.

Steven Jackson plans to play for the St. Louis Rams despite a quadriceps injury. The Arizona Cardinals hope to have Beanie Wells back from a hamstring injury. The San Francisco 49ers expect Frank Gore to play despite an ankle injury, although reports suggest his status is a little more tenuous (he is questionable).

One lower-profile injury of note: Kam Chancellor, strong safety for the Seahawks, missed practice again and was listed as doubtful for Sunday. It's looking like veteran Atari Bigby, formerly of the Green Bay Packers, will start against the Atlanta Falcons.

Bigby has been playing special teams and in sub packages. He's not hurting for experience or talent. Injuries spelled his demise in Green Bay. If he's healthy, though, the Seahawks could certainly do worse for a short-term replacement.

Chancellor has emerged this season as a big-hitting defender with play-making ability. His interception against Arizona all but clinched the Seahawks' victory in Week 3.
