As you might expect for the first week of the season, the injury report is pretty short for the St. Louis Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles. Two names, just two players - one from each team - made the list this week. Both names have varied implications for each team.
For the St. Louis Rams, tight end Michael Hoomanawanui is listed as questionable. Head coach Steve Spagnuolo clarified Hoomanawanui's status as "very doubtful." He did not practice all week. The Rams could use Hoomanawanui against an Eagles team with a very inexperienced crew of Eagles linebackers. Hoomanawanui possesses that deceptive speed and good hands to make up a matchup problem for defenses. I think the Rams really missed him last year, and will miss him today. Hopefully, Lance Kenrdricks can make the impact we all expect.
Philadelphia will be without Mr. Dream Team himself, Vince Young. The man who added Jeff Fisher's coaching resume to his coup stick while in Tennessee is listed as doubtful.
Don't forget about your fantasy lineups. Fake Teams has some useful last minute information for you.
We'll get to the inactive list once we have it.
