Most teams returned to practice Wednesday, and as usual, there's plenty of news to digest:

Marvin Harrison (hamstring) has officially been ruled outfor Thursday's game at Jacksonville, which makes Anthony Gonzalez a starter anda credible reach play. Dallas Clark (hip) is listed as questionable but itwould be a stunner if he doesn't play. Joseph Addai (shoulder) is also questionableand is a far riskier start; I wouldn't play him unless I felt forced into it.

Anquan Boldin (shoulder) didn't practice and keep in mind he'scoming off three sub-par games in a row (starting with the messy Thursday nightaffair in Philadelphia). It's hard to imagine this keeping him off the fieldbut we'll see what happens the next two days.

Frank Gore (ankle) was off the field Wednesday as expectedand remains very questionable. DeShaun Foster, surprisingly decent last week atMiami, remains the fallback.

Brandon Jacobs (knee) did some work Wednesday and contextclues point to him starting Sunday against Carolina, a game that's all of asudden very important to the Giants. His understudy, Derrick Ward, is dealingwith a sore ankle.

The Panthers aren't too worried about DeAngelo Williams,because he's not on the injury report (he took some heavy hits in the Denvergame, but apparently did not suffer a concussion).

Jeff Garcia (calf) got some work Wednesday, though it could come down toa game-time decision Sunday against the Chargers. We'll see what we learn onhim the next two days.

Adrian Peterson (ankle) missed some reps but it doesn't looklike anything that will keep him off the field Sunday against the Falcons. Keepan eye out on this, but there's no need to panic yet.

As you probably know by now, Reggie Bush (knee) is out forthe year, and the Pierre Thomas bandwagon has no seating left. Enjoy the statgrab at Detroit.

Santana Moss (post concussion) had a full day and JasonCampbell (elbow) isn't on the injury report, so you can at least play Mosswithout worry Sunday against the Eagles.

Brian Westbrook (knee) was at practice and unless he hits asetback, he'll be involved plenty against Washington.

Kevin Smith (ankle) skipped some reps as per usual, but he'son target to play against the Saints and isn't a bad flex option (or No. 2 backin deeper groups).

Trent Edwards (groin) took some of the reps Wednesday and itlooks like he'll be the guy starting at Denver. Given how dreadful J.P. Losmanlooked the past two weeks, this is good news for the entire Buffalo offense. Losman has been demoted to the No. 3 position, in fact; Gibran Hamdan is the new backup.

Domenik Hixon (foot) sat out Wednesday and is questionablefor another week. Keep in mind his status for the Dallas game wasn't resolveduntil Sunday night.

Matt Hasselbeck (back) isn't practicing and the Seahawks areprepared to roll with Seneca Wallace for another week. Koren Robinson (knee)rested on Wednesday.

Tony Romo (back) missed a few reps but he'll play againstBaltimore. Marion Barber (toe) missed the session, as expected, and it's hardto like his chances of doing a lot against the Ravens on game day.

Derrick Mason (shoulder) took it easy, as he's done forseveral weeks, but the Ravens need him on the field against Dallas Sunday, andthat's where he'll be. Ray Rice (calf) took some reps Wednesday but looks fartoo risky to start, even as a flex play.

T.J. Houshmandzadeh (hand) had the day off, normal for himin the middle of the week. He's on schedule to start against Cleveland.

Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) got a day off but he's still likelyto play against the Broncos and their Jurassic linebackers.

Brandon Marshall (hip) was able to practice and the Broncosstill haven't clinched anything, so look for him to play against Buffalo.

Ashley Lelie (calf) and Ronald Curry (toe) both sat outWednesday but Zach Miller (shoulder) was able to get some work in. Miller hasbeen the only decent receiving threat in Oakland most of the year.

Laveranues Coles (thigh) had a limited Wednesday, his usualM.O. Barring a late-week setback, he'll play at Seattle.

Vincent Jackson (post concussion) practiced and should be ago at Tampa Bay, albeit it's a tricky matchup (the Bucs defense plays muchbetter at home).

Joshua Cribbs (back) took it easy Wednesday but probablywill go against the Bengals. The Browns probably won't have Kellen Winslow(ankle) on Sunday, however.

Roy Williams (foot) missed some reps but is on schedule toplay, and be ignored, Sunday against Baltimore.

J.J. Arrington (knee) didn't practice, a shame because he otherwiseis a great sleeper play against a New England linebacking corps that strugglesin coverage. We'll see where this goes the next two days.

Josh Brown (groin) isn't 100 percent and why would you wantto ride shotgun with the Rams offense, anyway?
