FANTASY FOOTBALL FRIDAY INJURY REPORT: RAY RICE ON ICE, REGGIE BUSH AND JOQUIE BELL TO SPLIT WORK

                                                                  

Friday is here which means it is time for the weekly Injury Report as fantasy football owners try to fine-tune their rosters before Sunday's games. 

-Don't count on seeing Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice in the lineup Sunday as a team source told us directly he will be sitting.  Rice is being listed as doubtful which gives him on paper a 25 percent chance to play.  He has not practiced at all this week and the reality is that Bernard Pierce will start against the Houston Texans on Sunday.

-Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush returned to practice Friday and should be ready to go Sunday against the Washington Redskins.  Bush and Joquie Bell apparently will split the workload in Week 3 but the Redskins are so horrible defensively that both men are usable as RB 2's this week. 

-San Diego Chargers WR Malcolm Floyd will miss at least a month after suffering a scary neck injury last Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.  Push up the value of both Eddie Royal and Vincent Brown, along with tight end Antonio Gates who will see an uptick in receptions in the suddenly potent Chargers offensive attack.

-Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton should be ready to go on Sunday despite being listed as probable with a groin injury.  Hilton has been limited during practice but all signs point to him being out there.  With Darius Heyward-Bey out with his own injury issues, Hilton is primed for continued big play success due to his athleticism. 

-Surprisingly Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace appeared on the injury report Friday as questionable due to a groin injury.  Wallace was seen practicing all week however which likely means he will be out there.  It has been a volatile start to the season for Wallace who followed up a one-catch Week 1 with a 9-catch monster game in Week 2. 

-Both Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) and Rashard Mendenhall (toe) practiced with the Arizona Cardinals Sunday which points to both men likely playing Sunday.  Fitzgerald only lasted a half last week with 2 meaningless catches before had to come out with the hamstring but the fact he practiced (which was something he didn't do last week) is a nice sign.

-Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has been fully cleared to play Sunday after the concussion he suffered in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans.  At 32, Johnson is still at the top of his game as a fantasy football wide receiver 1.

-Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall returned to practice Friday with no issues after coming out of Thursday's session with a back injury.  Marshall is all set to start.

There you have it.  As always posts comments below.  Also be sure to stick with us all Sunday morning to see who plays and who sits.
