Campbell breaks collarbone Saints coach hurt, too
A quarterback and a coach could be out for a while after being injured Sunday.
Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell broke his right collarbone during Oakland’s 24-17 win over Cleveland, while New Orleans coach Sean Payton has a torn ligament and broken bone in his left leg after a player fell on him.
“I’m not going to let this football team blink,” coach Hue Jackson said. “We’ll miss Jason for a little while. I have no idea how long it will take. I don’t know. We’ll see as we go. I know, obviously, he won’t be here next week or anything like that. We’ll continue to press forward and get better.”
Payton will have surgery Monday after tearing the MCL and fracturing the tibia in his leg following a collision on the sideline of New Orleans’ 26-20 loss to Tampa Bay.
He spent the second half in the training room watching the game on TV and gave the play calling duties to offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael.
Payton fell to the ground and got his leg caught underneath Jimmy Graham when the tight end was tackled by a Bucs defender early in the first quarter.
Payton stayed down while receiving medical attention before being helped to the bench. He remained there with his leg propped on the bench, but kept on his headset.
Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said Polamalu had “concussion-like symptoms” and was held out as a precaution.
Steelers guard Doug Legursky left in the second quarter with a dislocated toe.
Bears wide receiver Devin Hester left Sunday’s 39-10 win against the Minnesota Vikings because of a chest injury after scoring two long touchdowns.
Chicago also lost tight end Kellen Davis to an elbow injury.
Minnesota lost center John Sullivan and safety Jamarca Sanford to concussions. Sullivan was on the field for the Vikings’ first series in the third quarter and then left the game. Sanford left midway through the quarter.
