Ten injury situations to watch as this shorter-than-usual week progresses…

1. No Ben Roethlisberger at Pittsburgh’s Wednesday practice. Don’t expect him to face St. Louis Saturday. Here’s our take.

2. Kevin Kolb and John Skelton are splitting first-time reps in Arizona. Kolb practiced in limited fashion.

3. For the banged-up Packers, James Starks returned to practice Wednesday, while Bryan Bulaga was ruled out already for Green Bay’s Week 16 matchup with Chicago.

4. Already down DeMarco Murray and with one less day to prepare, Dallas didn’t have Felix Jones at practice today. Keep an eye on Sammy Morris!

5. Still no Darren McFadden for the Raiders.

6. Things are looking up for A.J. Green, who was limited in practice ahead of a big game with Arizona.

7. Things are getting worse for the Bears, who didn’t have Marion Barber at practice Wednesday.

8. No Vincent Jackson today for the Chargers. An injury there would be huge for a depleted Detroit secondary.

9. It’s looking like another Kellen Clemens week in St. Louis.

10. Ahmad Bradshaw is easing back in for the Giants.
