New York tight end Dustin Keller returned after hurting his head when he landed hard on the turf in the first quarter while attempting to hurdle two Bills defenders.
Buffalo kicker Rian Lindell was having tests after the game after he hurt his right shoulder while making a diving tackle on Joe McKnight’s kickoff return to open the second half.
Lindell hit a 24-yard field goal later in the third quarter, but was held out in the fourth.
Saints cornerback Tracy Porter hurt his neck early in a 27-16 win over Tampa Bay.
Porter was injured on the second play from scrimmage while breaking up a pass with a hard hit on receiver Mike Williams. Porter lay face down for several seconds and was strapped to a stretcher by trainers and paramedics, but was able to move his extremities and gave a thumbs up before being taken to a hospital as a precaution.
“It’s good to get in here after the game and find out that he’s doing pretty well,” New Orleans coach Sean Payton said.
The Saints played without linebacker Jonathan Vilma, sidelined by a sore left knee.
Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy left the game with a biceps injury.
Green caught the ball for a 20-yard gain early in the fourth quarter of a 24-17 victory. Griffin and McCourty fell to the ground, and trainers worked on both with four teammates kneeling nearby, watching.
Cleveland wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, who missed the previous game with a concussion, was taken out late in the third quarter Sunday after feeling woozy. Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Massaquoi was not hit, but was simply removed as a precaution.
Defensive back T.J. Ward injured a hand and a foot during Cleveland’s 30-12 loss at Houston. Offensive lineman Tony Pashos hurt his right knee and linebacker Kaluka Maiava also injured a knee. Shurmur said they would be evaluated Monday.
Washington right tackle Jammal Brown left a 19-11 loss to San Francisco after hurting his hip. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said he wasn’t sure how serious the injury was.View Entire Story
