Editor's note: Eric Karabell is off this week. Tristan H. Cockcroft will be writing the Four Downs (Sunday night) and flex rankings (Thursday) KaraBlogs, KC Joyner will write the year-to-end ranks KaraBlog (Tuesday) and AJ Mass will write the "sneaky pickups" KaraBlog (Friday). Eric will return Sunday night (Nov. 20) with his Four Downs blog from Week 11.

The injury bug has been quite a bothersome creature for much of the 2011 NFL season, but this past weekend, it reached near plague status, with injuries to Matt Schaub, Matt Cassel, Julio Jones, Michael Vick and Jeremy Maclin. Those woes will have a significant impact on the rest-of-season rankings.
