The injury report has shrunk the last two weeks. Like it matters now.

Part of the reason it's shrunk is that CB Pat Lee and RT Mark Tauscher are now on I.R. and not listed on the weekly injury report. OL Tony Moll will start in place of Tauscher and he's not as good.
S Atari Bigby hasn't played since New Orleans, but at least S Aaron Rouse and S Nick Collins aren't listed, so the secondary might be as good as it is going to get for the remainder of this season.
LB Brandon Chillar should be back which is great news. I'm still not convinced he's a long-term answer, but he is their best LB in pass coverage. His absence was really felt last week when Houston's TE Owen Daniels and FB Vonta Leach killed them. This week they really need someone to run after RB Maurice Jones-Drew.
LT Chad Clifton and CB Charles Woodson are always listed; and always play.
I have no idea if the knee injury to FB Korey Hall is a new one or related to the one he's been battling all season. It kept him out some in September. Although not a big loss, he's better than FB John Kuhn. The run blocking seems better with Hall in the game.
I expect everyone will play. Even the trainer's constant companion; DT Justin Harrell.
