Here’s your weekly spin around the NFL injury situations we’ll be monitoring all day Sunday and on Monday night. St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson is regarded as game-time decision after being listed as “questionable” with a groin injury that sidelined him for much of last week’s win over the Washington Redskins. Jackson has been remarkably durable throughout his career, playing through ailments that would sideline most players, so it would not be a surprise if he gives it a go. If not, rookie Daryl Richardson will get the bulk of the carries in the backfield against the Chicago Bears, who will be without running back Matt Forte (ankle) and has defensive end Julius Peppers listed as “probable” with a foot injury. On Sunday night, the New England Patriots will be without tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle) and have three starting offensive linemen — Logan Mankins, Dan Connolly, Sebastian Vollmer — listed as “questionable” with various ailments. The Baltimore Ravens are much healthier, with right tackle Jah Reid (ankle) the only player who could miss the game due to injury. Reid, who has missed the first two weeks of the season, is listed as “doubtful”. The biggest injury question heading into Monday night’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks is Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings, who missed last Thursday night’s win over the Chicago Bears with a groin injury. Jennings was able to practice on Friday and Saturday and is listed as “questionable” on the final injury report of the week. The Seattle Seahawks could be without wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who injured his shoulder during this week and is listed “questionable” on the injury report.
