NFL Injury Update: Maurice Jones-Drew, Chad Ochocinco Among Those Out Sunday

12 p.m.: Maurice Jones-Drew headlines the list of inactives, as his knee injury will keep him out of Jacksonville's must-win against the Redskins. Rashad Jennings, who has shown signs of brilliance, will start in his place.

Chad Ochocinco will join Terrell Owens on the sidelines as the Bengals take on San Diego, meaning that Andre Caldwell and Jordan Shipley will be primary targets for Carson Palmer.

Todd Heap's thigh will keep him out as Baltimore take on Cleveland, and Antonio Gates won't be available for San Diego either. Randy McMichael will start in his place. For New England, Aaron Hernandez's absence means Rob Gronkowski will get more looks.

Shaun Hill will be starting over Drew Stanton for the Lions, though both will be active. Kerry Collins will continue as the starter in Tennessee, and Rex Grossman will again get the nod over Donovan McNabb for Washington.

Anthony Dixon is good to go for the 49ers' must-win. He'll be sharing duties with Brian Westbrook.

Knowshon Moreno should be able to play, but such has not been confirmed. The status of Adrian Peterson is up in the air, but Minnesota's game has been moved to Tuesday night. Malcom Floyd and Andre Johnson are also game-time decisions.
