The injury tracker report will bridge the gap between our early and late week in-depth injury reports. We'll keep track of all key fantasy player injuries and provide any new information from the teams and any practice reports. Be sure you check out our Priority News often during the week as all breaking news will be posted there.

QUARTERBACKS

Brodie Croyle, KC - Shoulder Sprain - Croyle remains on schedule to return in week 7 following the Chiefs' bye week.

He is officially being listed as "day-to-day," but at this point team officials expect him to recover in time for their next game.

Brian Griese, TB - Bruised Elbow - Griese didn't practice Wednesday and the team isn't sure if he'll be back in the starting lineup for this weekend's game.

Matt Hasselbeck, SEA - Hyperextended Knee - Hasselbeck was held out of Wednesday's practice but the team expects him to get some work in starting Thursday and to play this weekend.

Jon Kitna, DET - Back - Kitna didn't practice Wednesday to keep resting his troublesome back. The Lions still believe he'll return to practice later in the week and play Sunday.
