Injuries to No. 3 receivers, kickoff return men and offensive linemen generally don't receive the same attention as injuries to starting skill players. However, they can still have a significant impact, and this week's list includes all three.

Here is a list of six injured players in all, their prognosis and who is expected to replace them. There are also projections for how the injuries will affect their respective teams this weekend as well as down the road.

Steve Muench played four years of Division I-AA football before joining Scouts Inc. in 2002. He has evaluated both NFL and college players for Scouts Inc., but his current focus is on the NFL draft.
