Pats’ Hernandez, Jags’ Gabbert leave with injuries
“Hopefully, he’s fine,” fellow tight end Rob Gronkowski said. “He’s a great player and we need him.”
He was injured in the first half, played the third quarter and one series in the fourth before leaving the game with what coach Mike Mularkey called “a strain in the back of his leg.”
Jackson didn’t play after drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for spiking the ball in protest after he was ruled short of the goal line on a third-down carry from the 1. Coach Jeff Fisher said Jackson was held out because of the injury, not because he was being disciplined.
The Redskins lost defensive end Adam Carriker and outside linebacker Brian Orakpo to injuries early in the first quarter, while Rams offensive tackle Rodger Saffold was helped off after hurting his right knee.
Orakpo and Saffold were hurt on the same play. Orakpo stripped Rams quarterback Sam Bradford of the ball and Saffold recovered the fumble and carried it 7 yards, but crumpled to the turf on the tackle.
Kansas City tight end Kevin Boss will be evaluated after being knocked woozy with a blow to the head in the Chiefs’ 35-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Coach Romeo Crennel didn’t have any further details on Boss‘ injury following the game, but added that cornerback Javier Arenas also hurt his neck.
Boss was hurt after making a 29-yard catch over the middle in the second quarter. Stumbling backward, Boss was falling down when Buffalo safety Da’Norris Searcy’s forearm hit the back of Boss‘ head. The tight end’s head then hit the ground hard. Searcy was penalized for unnecessary roughness for the hit.
New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw, tackle David Diehl and wide receiver Domenik Hixon were knocked out of the team’s 41-34 win over Tampa Bay.
Hixon suffered a concussion after taking a hard helmet-to-helmet hit from linebacker Mason Foster following a 12-yard catch to the Bucs 4.
Diehl, New York’s most versatile offensive lineman, went down with a right knee injury. Bradshaw went to the locker room for X-rays on his neck during the second quarter and ruled out of the game just before halftime.
Philadelphia lost center Jason Kelce, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and offensive lineman King Dunlap to injuries in the Eagles’ 24-23 win over Baltimore.
Kelce was lost for the game with a sprained right knee, Dunlap, the Eagles’ left tackle, injured a hamstring, and Maclin left in the third quarter with a hip pointer.
Also injured Sunday were: Jets fullback John Conner (right knee), Indianapolis center Samson Satele (undisclosed knee injury), Oakland cornerback Shawntae Spencer (sprained foot) and running back Taiwan Jones (ribs), and Miami cornerback Richard Marshall (back).
