Green Bay Packers
St. Louis Rams
The NFL Week 8 Injury Report was released Friday, although fantasy football owners really only need to pay attention on Sunday morning, as that is when the inactives are listed. This week once again carries a plethora of marquee names who will be inactive for today’s games, causing fantasy football owners scrambling to find replacements.
For the Green Bay Packers, Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings are both inactive. The Packers will rely on Randall Cobb, James Jones and Donald Driver in their absence.
Danny Amendola was hoping to play for the St. Louis Rams, but he will miss at least one more game. Brandon Gibson will continue to be the go-to receiver for Sam Bradford.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have listed running backs Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman as inactive, meaning Jonathan Dwyer will once again carry the load.
As expected, Pierre Garcon is inactive for the Washington Redskins. With Fred Davis lost for the season, expect Santana Moss to continue to get more looks in the slot.

GREEN BAY, Wis. Nearly one thousand miles away from Hurricane Sandy, the Packers were supposed to be one of the NFL teams unaffected by the storm's destructive path. But with Greg Jennings set to fly out to Philadelphia for his scheduled surgery, the star wide receiver has no choice but to wait on the procedure.
Jennings announced last week that he is opting for surgery to...
St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola was known as a tough player even before he suffered a hit and dislocated his collar bone, an injury that could have claimed his life.
Now, just three weeks after that brutal injury, Amendola is trying to prove exactly how tough he is. The wide receiver is doing everything he can to come back and play this week when the Rams take on the...
First Greg Jennings, now Jordy Nelson.
The Green Bay Packers are without their top two receivers after Nelson was declared inactive for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He injured his hamstring during practice Wednesday. Randall Cobb, who followed his first 100-yard receiving game with a pair of touchdown catches last weekend, starts in his place.
It was ugly but the Green Bay Packers will take it. The Packers offense was not firing on all cylinders Sunday without their top two receivers in Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson, but thankfully the defense was up to the task against a relatively impotent offense as the Packers hung on in an ugly 24-15 [...]
Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) will not play in Week 8.Fantasy Spin:Mendenhall sustained an Achilles injury in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans, forcing him to leave the game and miss last week's contest against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Green Bay receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the Jaguars.Fantasy Spin:The Packers aren't taking any chances with Nelson against lowly Jacksonville after Greg Jennings rushed back and aggravated his groin injury earlier this season. Get Randall Cobb and James Jones in your lineup.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without safety Troy Polamalu
and running back Rashard Mendenhall tomorrow when they take on the Washington Redskins.
Both players have been ruled out for tomorrow’s contest, while running back
Isaac Redman will likely be a game-time decision.
Polamalu has been dealing with a calf injury that’s caused
him to miss much of the season. Mendenhall...
