National Football League Foot Injury Update

Long list this week!
Carolina Panthers
Steve Smith, WR
Smith returned to practice on Sunday, after recovering from a foot infection that kept him out for two weeks. "He went back to his normal practice mode- 100 percent, all the time," said coach Ron Rivera. "So it was a lot of fun watching Steve back on the football field." Rivera expects Smith to be back for Week 1 against Tampa Bay.
Carolina Panthers
Jonathan Stewart, RB
Stewart did not participate in the team's official practice Wednesday, but coach Rivera is optimistic he'll be able to play Week 1. Stewart hasn't practiced since spraining his ankle in a preseason game on August 26 against the Jets.
Cincinnati Bengals
BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB
Green-Ellis is ready for Week 1's game against the Raven, expected to carry most of the carries. Whatever the coaches have in mind for him though, Green-Ellis is ready. "That might not be the gameplan. Whatever it is, that's what I'm going to do. If they want me to run, I'm going to run. If they want to pass, I'm going to block."
Cincinnati Bengals
Leon Hall, CB
No further update on Hall.
Cleveland Browns
Chris Ogbonnaya, RB
Ogbonnaya has an ankle injury and has had limited practice. He is questionable for Week 1 against Philadelphia.

Ratliff can't seem to catch a break. The high ankle sprain he suffered and was recovering from is still lingering, and most likely will throughout the season.
Detroit Lions
Chris Houston, CB
Houston left a preseason game against Oakland with an ankle injury and has not been practicing. It is questionable whether he will be ready for Week 1 against St. Louis.

Indianapolis Colts
Pat Angerer, LB
Angerer has still not practiced and is questionable for Week 1 against Chicago.

His status is still up in the air, but Peterson hopes to play against the Jaguars. Peterson is working his way back from a torn ACL last season and says "I feel good. I've been working hard since the injury to get back to this moment. So me and the coaching staff, we're on the same page. So when I come out Sunday, hopefully I get the nod to go."

New Orleans Saints
Marques Colson, WR
Colson hit the practice field Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday. Practice was limited as the team prepares for Week 1 against the Redskins.
New Orleans Saints
Curtis Lofton, LB
Lofton is dealing with a high ankle sprain, and is still limited in practice. He may miss the season opener against the Redskins.
New York Giants
Prince Amukamara, CB

New York Giants
Jayron Hosley, CB
Hosley played against Dallas in the season opener, but had been suffering with a toe issue.
New York Giants
Hakeem Nicks, WR
Nicks appeared less than 100 percent healthy in the season opener against Dallas and had an underwhelming first game back.
New York Jets
David Harris, LB
Harris has just a slight sprain, not a high ankle sprain, and is probable for Week 1 against the Bills.
New York Jets
LaRon Landry, DB
Landry has been suffering with an unspecified heel injury, but has been through full practice and is probable against the Bills.
New York Jets

Philadelphia Eagles
Casey Matthews, LB
Matthews missed the last two preseason games with a high ankle sprain. "I'm almost there, there's just a little stiffness in it, they're just trying to get it out. I should be ready by Week 1," said Matthews. He has been doing full practice and should be ready for game 1.
Pittsburgh Steelers
Larry Foote, LB
Foote's ankle was just tweaked, and practiced on Thursday. He should be fine for Sunday's game against Denver.

Keisel did not play in the final preseason game against the Panthers, but has been at practice and should be ready for Week 1.

San Francisco 49ers
Ted Ginn, WR
Ginn has not practiced all week, so it is doubtful he will play in Week 1.
St. Louis Rams
Michael Brockers, DT
It is likely Brockers will play in the first game since he was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain and should miss the entire first month of the season. Brockers was carted off the field in the Ram's final preseason game last Thursday. An MRI on Friday revealed the injury.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
E. J. Biggers, CB
Biggers has a foot injury and is questionable against Carolina in Week 1.
