    Injuries could really affect the game planning.

    Christian Ponder may not be able to start.
    Adrian Peterson may not be ready.
    Shiancoe and Rudolph may be limited.

    On Defense
    Brian Robison may be out
    Bigger issue is secondary
    Asher Allen may not be ready
    Abdullah won’t play. Bring on the 3rd stringers again.

    For Detroit:
    Matt Stafford has has problems throwing
    Kevin Smith may not play
    On Defense
    Fairley may not play and Suh is out
    Defensive secondary is weak and now Houston and Delmas are questionable.
    Overall: Advantage Detroit.

    1. Linebacker Erik Walden, arrested November 25 after a domestic incident with his girlfriend, was charged Wednesday with misdemeanor disorderly conduct-domestic abuse. He is free on bond and has a hearing scheduled for Dec. 27. Coach Mike McCarthy said the situation is under review but that Walden will start Sunday

    2. ESPN 1500 is reporting Cornerback Chris Cook will be unavailable for the rest of the season due to felony domestic assault charges he is facing. At his Nov. 22 court hearing the case was extended to a hearing/trial date scheduled for March.

    Frazier, however, stopped short of ruling Cook out of the team’s future plans. Viking play one short on their 53-man roster — without their best cover man.

    3. Cook could face discipline from the NFL under the league’s personal conduct policy. Cook’s situation remains “under review.”

    4. Felony charges are more serious than misdemeanor. However, courts may find Cook to be innocent or mitigating circumstances resulting in reduced sentencing. Still seems to be a double standard. Is there a previous precedent for a player to be suspended for season on felony charges?

      As a LEO, I can say there is a huge difference. In minnesota a domestic involving strangulation is a felony, domestic assault is a misdemeanor. Cook is facing prison and years of probation. Walden is facing a couple hundred dollar fine and a few months probation.
      Right or wrong, Cook is an idiot for hitting a woman, and worse yet he put his hands around her neck which raised the charges. Odds are he will plea down to a lesser charge and gets probation with a fine and maybe a few days in jail. Mr. Comish will look at this season and suspend him 2 more games next year (assuming he doesn’t do something stupid this offseason too).

        Thanks for that explanation, Skoli

        Clearly, I wasn’t looking for clemency for wifebeaters. Chris ‘Cross’ Cook deserves the Book. This guy is lucky to be cashing a check.

        Its confusing when you see other turds (eg. Talib) charged with felonies and suiting up every week. My initial thoughts were the 2nd felony charge in a year activated the NFL Personal Conduct policy irrespective of the acquittal.

        Your explanation of what separates felony charges from misdemeanors is key. Also agree that Cook has a good chance to reduce charges what with a witness involved, well paid lawyers, a victim recanting her initial allegations and so it goes.

        Next time I hear of a guy wanting to ‘wring her neck’ I’ll be sure to pass along your advice.

    Perish Cox – Bronco

    Aqib Talib – Buc

    Kendrick Ellis – Jet

    This is Chris Cook’s second Felony charge as there was insufficient evidence in earlier gun case. However, Cook has been suspended six games and next hearing is not until 5 January 2012. Question is whether League Conduct policy is being applied appropriately.

    From what I have been hearing, Ponder should be good to go, AP will play even if he is 85%, and Robison has not yet passed concussion tests so he may be out. Griffen has done pretty well on the edge when given some oppportunities. Secondary well I am not even gonna go there! We really need alot of pressure on Stafford this week!!!

    Handle on tonight’s mismatch…

    Cleveland +14 over PITTSBURGH

    Home side most certainly has an advantage on these Thursday night games but five of the six Thursday games thus far has seen the victorious team win by 10 or less. The only blowout was Seattle over Philly last week.

    Steeler come into this one extremely banged up and that includes QB Ben Roethlisberger (hand). Roethlisberger at home usually spells big yardage and multiple scores but Brown bring in a very good pass defense and there is no reason for Big Ben to throw the ball that much. Brown never allow more than the one passing TD and rarely more than 200 passing yards. Expect a moderate game from Big Ben and conservative approach from the Steeler.

    Brown lost by a combined 79-19 in two games to the Steeler last season. If nothing else, they’ll be looking to restore some dignity and work their rear ends off to give themselves a shot. Also note that in 10 of 12 games this season Brownie have been within this range and the total here of 38½ suggests they’ll stay within range in this one too.

    Play: Cleveland +14
