    Offense

    QB Ben Roethlisberger / Steelers
    Lingering rib and shoulder injuries could prove to be insurmountable obstacles.

    RB Maurice Jones-Drew / Jaguars
    One of AFC’s top backs has missed last six-plus games with foot injury.

    RB Rashard Mendenhall / Steelers
    Team’s best back has been burdened nonstop by knee, Achilles injuries.

    WR Greg Jennings / Packers
    Aaron Rodgers’ favorite target missed seven games with groin injury.

    WR Santonio Holmes / Jets
    Loss of team’s best offensive player with Lisfranc injury has contributed to Jets’ demise.

    TE Aaron Hernandez / Patriots
    Just when he comes back from six-game hiatus (ankle), down goes fellow TE Gronkowski.

    OLT Jake Long / Dolphins
    Miami had been one of healthiest teams before losing perennial Pro Bowler in Week 13.

    OLG Carl Nicks / Buccaneers
    All-Pro selection with Saints last season was costly free-agent addition.

    C Ryan Kalil / Panthers
    Pro Bowler each of last three seasons is also prominent figure in locker room.

    ORG Davin Joseph / Buccaneers
    Losing Nicks was bad enough. Losing Joseph, also considered a top guard, is double trouble.

    ORT Todd Herremans / Eagles
    Eagles O-line a lost cause after losing Herremans, OLT Jason Peters and C Jason Kelce.


    Defense

    DE Glenn Dorsey / Chiefs
    Loss of team’s best D-lineman has wreaked havoc with K.C.’s defense.

    NT Phil Taylor / Browns
    Losing Taylor (pectoral) the first half of the season was major punch in the nose.

    DE Adrian Clayborn / Buccaneers
    And yet another former first-round draft pick bites the dust!

    ROLB Brian Orakpo / Redskins
    Losing two-time Pro Bowler (torn pectoral) along with DE Adam Carriker a double whammy.

    RILB Sean Lee / Cowboys
    PFW Midseason All-Pro selection was playing out of his head before going down for the count.

    LILB Brian Cushing / Texans
    Loss of defense’s leading tackler and emotional leader still could take its toll down stretch.


    LOLB Terrell Suggs / Ravens
    Comeback from torn Achilles much sooner than expected has eased Ravens’ pain a bit.

    CB Darrelle Revis / Jets
    Arguably the league’s most talented defender went down one week before Holmes.

    CB Lardarius Webb / Ravens
    One of AFC’s better corners was playing quite well before Week Six knee injury.

    SS Troy Polamalu / Steelers
    Established Grade-A playmaker has missed all but three games.

    FS Louis Delmas / Lions
    Cranky knee has been ongoing issue for beleaguered Lions secondary.

    Specialists

    PK Nate Kaeding / ex-Chargers
    P Chris Jones / Cowboys
    RS Marc Mariani / Titans
    LS Mike Windt / Chargers
