Question of the Day
Starting WR Mohamed Massaquoi was sent home Monday, still feeling the effects of his second concussion in 13 months.
Massaquoi sustained a concussion in the Browns’ Oct. 23 game against Seattle and missed the San Francisco game. He sat out one day of practice last week, but started Sunday against the Texans before being taken out late in the third quarter when he felt “woozy.”
Injuries are piling up for the Bills.
Coach Chan Gailey says the injury to kicker Rian Lindell’s right shoulder is “not good,” and the team will try out replacements this week. Gailey ruled out Lindell from playing at Dallas on Sunday. Lindell was hurt making a diving tackle on Joe McKnight on the second half-opening kickoff return in a 27-11 loss to the Jets on Sunday.
As for DT Kyle Williams, Gailey added the player could miss the rest of the season with a left foot injury that’s forced him to miss the past three games. Williams will visit a specialist this week.
Denver coach John Fox had no update on safety Rahim Moore’s concussion.
“It was definitely scary because it happened right in front (of me),” Fox said. “It was a relief when you saw him moving around and the fact that it’s a concussion is still serious, but it was not as serious as it looked when it happened.”
Moore was hurt on the first play of Denver’s win over Oakland.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said RT Jammal Brown left Sunday’s loss to San Francisco with a groin injury, not a hip as the coach said after the game. WR Niles Paul will miss a couple of weeks with turf toe.
TE Dustin Keller and RB Shonn Greene left the Jets’ win at Buffalo with head injuries, but Keller returned and Greene was held out because it was late in the game. He could have returned.
“We feel good about them and we’ll make sure they don’t have any setbacks,” coach Rex Ryan said, adding he expects DE Mike DeVito, who has missed two straight games with a knee injury, to return against New England.
“We’ll need him,” Ryan said. “We have to have him.”
Rams LB Josh Hull has a hamstring injury and will undergo an MRI. TE Lance Kendricks is day to day with a mid-foot strain. Tackle Jason Smith remains out with a concussion that has sidelined him for two games, but DT Darell Scott could return from a concussion this week. Scott also has missed two games.
Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said middle linebacker Rey Maualuga, cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones and tight end Jermaine Gresham are expected back at practice this week. Maualuga has missed three games with an ankle injury. Jones sat out the win at Tennessee on Sunday with a pulled hamstring. Gresham has missed the past two games with a hamstring injury.
