NFL injury updates: Week 3


In week 3, here are the injury updates from around the league on Sunday.

  • Redskins left tackle Trent Williams had to be helped off the field with a leg injury on Washington's first drive of the game. He has gone into the locker room. Williams has since returned to the game, but he's also limping.
  • New York Jets rookie receiver Stephen Hill appears to have injured his right leg. According to a report, Hill missed his block on the outside and then got clipped by a linebacker. Hill has since returned to the game.
  • Redskins cornerback Cedric Griffin has a hamstring injury, and his return is questionable.
  • Bengals receiver A.J. Green went down after falling just short of a touchdown on Washington's 1-yard line. But he got up and ran off the field without any help.
  • Titans tight end Jared Cook has a left shoulder injury, and he now officially is done for the day.
  • After 10 carries for 61 yards, Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush left the game late in the first half after he seemed to hurt his knee. He walked off the field under his own power, but he probably won't return to the game until the second half. If, at all. UPDATE: He's out for the game.
  • Kansas City Chiefs receiver Dexter McCluster hurt his left elbow while making a catch early in the third quarter. He made an outstanding catch, but as he put his elbow down to break his fall, it folded under the weight of his body. He had to be helped off the field.
  • After making his first catch of the day, Indianapolis Colts receiver Austin Collie stayed on the field and appeared to be grabbing for his right knee. As Collie was helped off the field, he put no pressure on his right knee. He is out for the game.
  • Cleveland Browns receiver Mohamed Massaquoi has a hamstring injury, and his return is questionable.
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Adrian Clayborn had to be helped off the field with what is reportedly a right leg injury. Teammates fear he might be lost for the season.
  • Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has a strained leg muscle, and he's been replaced by backup Shaun Hill .
  • Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones has a hand injury, but he has returned to the game.
  • Dallas Cowboys safety Barry Church reportedly has ruptured his Achilles tendon.
  • Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox has a migraine headache, and his return is questionable.
  • Denver Broncos linebacker Nate Irving after he made a tackle on punt coverage. It appeared that Irving's head collided with Trindon Holliday's shoulder. Trainers took the facemask off his helmet before he walked off to the locker room under his own power. The team says Irving has suffered a concussion and won't return.
  • Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells has a bum toe. His return is questionable.
  • Broncos running back Willis McGahee has a rib injury, and his return is questionable.
  • Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett has a hamstring injury, and he's currently walking around the sideline with a big wrap on his leg. It seems doubtful that he'll return.
  • Oakland Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was carted off the field early in the fourth quarter after he was blasted in the end zone by Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy . It appeared that Mundy's helmet hit Heyward-Bey in the chin. There was no penalty. It took medical personnel several minutes to load Heyward-Bey on a body board. Before he left, he was surrounded by several teammates. Before he left, after an agonizingly-long wait, he moved his arm and gave the crowd the thumbs-up. He has been taken to a local hospital after suffering a neck injury. UPDATE: Some good news: though Heyward-Bey will stay in the hospital overnight for observation, he's in stable condition.
  • New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman has a hand injury, and his return is questionable.
