  • The Patriots lost WR Wes Welker to a left knee inujury that all signs point to as being severe. NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports initial tests revealed damage to both the ACL and MCL, and that the injury is likely season-ending. Welker is scheduled for an MRI exam Monday.

  • Cowboys RB Tashard Choice sustained a concussion against the Eagles and didn’t play after the first quarter.
  • The Cardinals lost two key starters in WR Anquan Boldin and CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Boldin didn’t return after a left ankle injury in the third quarter, while Rogers-Cromartie left with a bruised kneecap.  
  • Raiders QB Charlie Frye sustained an injured ankle and back and was replaced by backup JaMarcus Russell against the Ravens.
