The following is an injury report and team analysis:

Eagles: McNabb update
Head coach Andy Reid updated the status of his starting QB on Monday. "Donovan McNabb had a couple of things I didn’t tell you about yesterday," said Reid. "I found out this morning he has a shin contusion and his chest was hurting him quite a bit after the hit that (Raider DT Warren) Sapp hit him on the back. His chest was quite sore and it’s that way today as well. The lower abdomen is also sore. It’s no worse than what it was, but he does have some soreness."

Fantasy Analysis: McNabb is very banged up and while the team is confident he'll be able to play, who knows if he'll be able to make it through the rest of the season. Be sure to pick up a decent backup QB if you have McNabb such as Gus Frerotte, Steve McNair, Eli Manning who might still be available on the waiver wire. Or, look to make a trade for a good QB with upside.

Jets QB situation
Starting quarterback Chad Pennington has suffered a rotator cuff injury for the second straight year, and he'll miss the remainder of the season. Veteran backup Jay Fiedler also was injured in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. Fiedler is out for at least two months and possibly the season, so this week's starter at Baltimore will be untested Brooks Bollinger.

Fantasy Analysis: We'll downgrade their receivers as Pennington looked bad well before Sunday's injury. As of now, we see Laveranues Coles as a #3 WR and Justin McCareins as worth only as a depth receiver.
