Nugent left the game late in the first quarter after a missed 32-yard field goal attempt, appearing to favor the injury. The Jets don’t have another placekicker on the roster,¬†and the injury was serious enough for the team to not attempt a field goal on a fourth-and-13 from the Dolphins’ 22-yard line on the following drive. The Jets announced he is questionable to return. Punter Ben Graham is handling kickoff duties for the Jets.

– Lions LB Ernie Sims left the game late in the second quarter against the Falcons. Sims, who was carted off the sidelines a few minutes before halftime, was listed as questionable to return with an ankle injury.

– Saints reserve DT Antwan Lake left the game vs. the Bucs middway through the first quarter with an undisclosed injury.
