With all of the Week 9 action nearly in the books, here’s a look at some of Sunday’s notable injuries we’re tracking:
- Redskins RB Clinton Portis didn’t return after suffering a concussion during the first quarter of a 31-17 loss to the Falcons. Redskins coach Jim Zorn told the team’s official Web site he would be cautious with the injury. Redskins QB Jason Campbell left the game twice, after hurting his chest and then his ankle, but he returned to finish the game. Redskins OT Mike Williams (ankle) and S Reed Doughty (unknown) also left with injuries.
- The Falcons lost two players to injuries against the Redskins. WR Brian Finneran suffered a knee injury during the first quarter and didn’t return, while LT Sam Baker left with an ankle injury. Falcons coach Mike Smith didn’t have an update on Finneran’s status following the game.
- Bengals WR Chris Henry‘s status is in doubt after he broke his left forearm during the second quarter of a 17-7 victory over the Ravens. The Bengals’ medical staff put an air cast on Henry’s forearm and carted him off the field. The Bengals also had G Evan Mathis (left ankle) and LB Keith Rivers (right calf) suffer injuries. Rivers was on crutches after the game, and will undergo further testing on Monday. He wouldn’t rule out playing next week, according to the team’s official Web site.
- Bears DBs Charles Tillman and Al Afalava didn’t return during a 41-21 loss to the Cardinals because of shoulder injuries. Backup RB Garrett Wolfe (back) was also injured.
- Colts WR Austin Collie suffered a neck injury during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 20-17 victory over the Texans.
- Dolphins rookie CB Vontae Davis left the 27-17 loss to the Patriots with a quad injury, but he returned to the field just before halftime. Davis, Miami’s first-round draft pick in April, made his second start of the season on Sunday.
- The Patriots lost C Dan Koppen to a knee injury during the second quarter against the Dolphins, and was replaced by Dan Connolly. The team gave no postgame update on his status, although he didn’t return.
- Jaguars TE Ernest Wilford sprained a knee late in a 24-21 victory over the Chiefs and didn’t return.
- 49ers rookie RB Glen Coffee suffered a concussion late during the fourth quarter against the Titans.
- Panthers LB Thomas Davis left the game against the Saints midway through the fourth quarter with what appeared to be a serious leg injury.
- The Lions lost LB Ernie Sims to a hamstring injury during the third quarter of a 32-20 loss to the Seahawks.
- Eagles CB Asante Samuel left briefly during the second half of Sunday night’s game against the Cowboys with a neck injury, while LT Jason Peters (left ankle) left during the first quarter but was able return just before the half. Safety Quintin Demps (ankle) was injured during the first half and did not return, while CB Ellis Hobbs (stinger), Akeem Jordan (hyperextended knee) were also injured. Hobbs will have an MRI exam on Monday, according to coach Andy Reid.
