NEW YORK, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- Eight quarterbacks were among the ailing when the injury report for the NFL's 14th week was released Friday afternoon.

The quarterbacks who will not play are Cincinnati's Carson Palmer (right elbow) and Detroit's Dan Orlovsky (right thumb). Buffalo's Trent Edwards (groin) and Seattle's Matt Hasselbeck (back) are listed as doubtful.

Tennessee's Vince Young (right thumb) is questionable, with Houston's Matt Schaub (knee), Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger (knee) and Tampa Bay's Brian Griese (right elbow) in the probable category.

Among those on the list, only Orlovsky was not a starter when the 2008 season started Sept. 4.

Other players in the "out" category included Cleveland right end Kellen Winslow Jr. (ankle), Tennessee Titans cornerback Rashean Mathis (knee), Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Donnie Edwards (knee, hamstring) and Philadelphia Eagles guard Shawn Andrews (back).
