Texans wide receiver Cecil Shorts suffered a dislocated left shoulder during Sunday's loss to the Falcons, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Shorts was injured at the end of the game, after Nate Washington (hamstring) had already left. Shorts' injury initially appears to be the more serious of the two, and he had a sling on his arm after Sunday's game, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. With a game against the Colts coming up Thursday, the Texans may need the likes of Keith Mumphery and Jaelen Strong to step up as complementary options alongside target-monster DeAndre Hopkins.
Jets head coach Todd Bowles said after Sunday's game against the Dolphins in London that he was "not sure yet" about the severity of running back Bilal Powell's groin injury, NJ.com reports.
Powell left the game in the second quarter due to the injury and did not return. The Jets will fly back to the States on Sunday and Powell will be evaluated in the coming week to help determine if he will miss any time. Thankfully for the Jets, they are off in Week 5, giving Powell extra time to recover.
