Injured running backs...who's playing and who's not

What is the injury status on Corey Dillon, L. Tomlinson, and Brian Westbrook? I really don't see Westbrook playing with a broken rib.

Westbrook is a game time decision last I heard. Dillon will probably not be playing. LDT should go, havent heard otherwise

Broncmet....why are you assuming Dillon will not be playing?

Westbrook's definately playing....probably starting. Here's a post I made yesterday (interview with Reid): ... p?t=108477

My guess is that Dillon is too risky to insert into your lineup (NE never talks about injuries but that just means he's more risky w/o any info). Givens is also in "no info" status, but from what I've read he's also extremely risky. I'd say if you had other options for either of these guys, you should sit them.

My take on LT2 is that he'll play until SD is eaither comfortably ahead or way behind (likely the former). It will then be Chatman time.

Good luck!

Lt- will start and play but probably be relieved after the half or when they get a comfortable lead.

Dillon- from all accounts should play this week although the gametime decision does make it a little nerve racking.

Westy- I just don't think he will have the kind of impact this game that he is capable of. In fact, I've started A-train and K.Jones ahead of him this week.
