Breaking NFL Injury and Weather News For Bettors and Fantasy Football

Here is your key injury and NFL weather report for fantasy football and NFL picks week 13 compiled by the sports handicappers of the top betting site OffshoreInsiders.com   

Remember that Derek Anderson returns to the starting lineup as QB for the Browns against the Colts. Rams overrated starting QB Marc Bulger starts against the Miami Dolphins.

The Rams are the worst team in the NFL when RB Steven Jackson is out. We are told he will be limited, but will likely suit up. Also likely to play, but not be 100 percent is the Redskins running back Clinton Portis against the NY Giants. Meanwhile, Brandon Jacobs will start for the Giants, but they may be without backup Ahmad Bradshaw. Of course, WR Plaxico Burress is out for a variety of reasons.

The Saints RB Reggie Bush is probable, but also will be limited. Pittsburgh Steelers RB Willie Parker practiced fully Thursday and Friday, which makes him probable. Bob Sanders is out for the Colts.
