_ Lions coach Jim Schwartz said running back Jahvid Best started showing “concussion-like symptoms” after the loss to the 49ers.

_ Browns running back Peyton Hillis has an injured left hamstring, and coach Pat Shurmur does not know how long he will be sidelined. Hillis was injured in the first quarter of Sunday’s 24-17 loss at Oakland. On Monday, Hillis underwent an MRI, which revealed the injury. Shurmur did not provide any specifics on Hillis’ injury.

_ Texans safety Dominique Barber will go on injured reserve with a foot injury, and safety Danieal Manning (lower leg bruise) and left tackle Duane Brown (knee bruise) are both day to day.

There was good news: Kubiak is hopeful WR Andre Johnson will return after missing two games with a right hamstring injury.

_ Bengals middle linebacker Rey Maualuga wore a cast on his left foot, an indication his ankle injury will sideline him for more than one game. The team said Maualuga sprained his left ankle during practice last Thursday and wasn’t active in Sunday’s win over the Colts.

_ Cowboys running back Felix Jones has a high ankle sprain and left guard Bill Nagy has a broken ankle and is likely done for the season.

_ Redskins left guard Kory Lichtensteiger is out for the year with torn ligaments in his right knee. Coach Mike Shanahan also indicated Chris Cooley’s season might be over after the tight end broke the left index finger in Sunday’s loss to Philadelphia. Cooley will have surgery Wednesday. Meanwhile, left tackle Trent Williams is expected to miss at least a couple of weeks with a severely sprained right ankle.

_ Packers coach Mike McCarthy said cornerback Sam Shields sustained a concussion during Sunday’s victory over St. Louis and will go through the testing protocol this week.

_ Vikings safety Jamarca Sanford and center John Sullivan each suffered a concussion in Sunday’s loss to the Bears. Coach Leslie Frazier said he wasn’t sure whether either player would even be cleared to practice this week, let alone be able to play on Sunday. Right tackle Phil Loadholt also left the game because of inflammation in his knee. Cornerback Antoine Winfield also missed his second straight game because of a neck injury.

_ The Bills enter their bye week down another left tackle, with rookie Chris Hairston to miss up to four weeks with an injured right ankle. Linebacker Shawne Merriman’s status is uncertain after the star pass-rusher aggravated an Achilles tendon injury last week. And there’s no telling when starting defensive tackle Kyle Williams will return from a nagging foot injury.
