With all of Sunday’s games in the books except one, here’s a look back at the key injuries from Week 11:

  • Falcons RB Michael Turner suffered a right ankle injury during the second quarter against the Panthers and did not return. Falcons coach Mike Smith said Turner will undergo tests for the injury Monday.
  • Bengals RB Cedric Benson was forced out of the win over the Steelers during the second quarter due to a hip injury. Benson was optimistic about the injury following the game, saying he believes he’ll be OK.
  • Dolphins RB Ronnie Brown was on crutches following the 25-23 win over the Bucs due to a right ankle injury. Brown, who left during the third quarter, said he has X-rays and didn’t think the injury was “too bad.”
