Sports betting players are used to seeing the injury report come out on Wednesday or Thursday in the NFL, but due to the importance of the Super Bowl, players will be given a couple of extra days to prove they can suit up for the biggest game of their life. Here is a look at a couple of injuries worth paying attention to.

  • What: NFL Betting
  • When: Sunday, February 6th, 6:00 PM ET
  • Where: Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, TX

Injury Report – Steelers Betting

Those looking to bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers are anxiously awaiting news on Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey, who suffered a high ankle sprain in the AFC championship win over the New York Jets. Some say there is a broken bone, some say it’s a severe sprain, but the fact is, Pouncey remains in a walking boot and he’s getting around Dallas on crutches. NFL betting players should really pay attention to Friday’s practice, which Pouncey says is his last chance to prove he can play, and NFL betting players should also know he has played on this kind of injury before. The Steelers have been preparing for Ben Roethlisberger lining up behind Doug Legursky, and they’ve now had a couple of weeks to practice their exchange, because a bad snap forced a safety against the Jets, and there were more examples as well.

Cornerback Bryant McFadden has been dealing with an abdominal injury for the last few weeks, and he has had to play the nickel role with William Gay taking over his starting role. McFadden has gotten in some full practices, so it’s likely that he’ll be back in the starting lineup on Sunday, which is a coup for the secondary. However, defensive end Aaron Smith is unlikely to be ready for the Super Bowl because of a triceps injury that has kept him on the shelf since Week 8. Therefore, the Steelers know how to get around without him, so it’s not that big of a deal. Safety Will Allen hasn’t practiced because of a knee injury and is questionable, but he hasn’t played much anyway.

Defensive Player of the Year, safety Troy Polamalu, leads a list of probable players for Sunday’s showdown as he has practiced with his sore Achilles, while offensive tackle Jonathan Scott won’t let sore ribs keep him out of this game, and receiver Emmanuel Sanders (foot) should be ready to go as well.

Injury Report –Packers Betting

The Green Bay Packers actually got a treat when they practiced for the first time on Wednesday as all 53 active players on the roster were available for the first time this season. The Packers have been decimated with injuries all season, so they picked a good time to finally get healthy. Their main concern is linebacker Erik Walden, who has a high ankle sprain that he suffered in the NFC championship game against the Chicago Bears, and we was limited in practice, leaving him questionable. Walden had been filling in for Frank Zombo, who has been out for the last six games with a knee injury, but Zombo got through a full practice, so he could be able to resume his spot if Walden can’t go. Walden thinks he’ll be able to play, so it’ll be interesting to see how the Packers handle this, because Zombo isn’t in game shape at all, and he’s definitely not in shape to play the entire Super Bowl, which could bring little-used Diyral Briggs into the fray.

Both starting inside linebackers, A.J. Hawk and Desmond Bishop, are probable because of knee and ankle injuries, respectively, and it’s extremely unlikely that they’ll miss this game. Offensive tackle Chad Clifton has been limited in practice because of ailing knees, but that has been a theme all season and he will be in the starting lineup on Sunday. Fellow lineman Jason Spitz will likely play with a calf injury, and he’s important to the depth of the offensive line. Finally, receiver Greg Jennings has a bum knee, but nothing that should stop him from playing at a high level on Sunday. Jennings is quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ No.1 target, and having him in the lineup is a big boost to Green Bay’s online betting odds.
