Injury roundup: Rams wait on tests for Jackson

  • Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said he was “fairly” certain the groin injury that sidelined RB Steven Jackson was not a tear. Jackson will undergo an MRI exam on Monday, according to Spagnuolo. Rams SS O.J. Atogwe (quad injury) left the game during the second quarter and didn’t return and Dominique Curry (right knee) suffered what Spagnuolo believed to be a serious injury.
  • Ravens RB Ray Rice said he would undergo tests Monday for the knee injury he suffered against the Browns. DE Cory Redding (concussion) left the game during the third quarter and didn’t return.
  • The Chargers lost OLB Shawne Merriman (calf) and RG Louis Vasquez (knee) during the first half against the Seahawks. Neither player returned to the game.
  • Saints CB Tracy Porter (right hamstring) missed most of regulation against the Falcons but was able to return briefly during overtime.
  • Jeff Fisher told reporters the Titans might be without starting CB Jason McCourty (slightly fractured forearm) for “a week or two.” McCourty was replaced by Altrerraun Verner and didn’t return.
  • Browns starting RT John St. Clair left the game during the first quarter with an ankle injury.
  • The Vikings lost starting center John Sullivan (calf) after the first play of the game and TE Visanthe Shiancoe (leg) during the third quarter. Vikings coach Brad Childress indicated both should return after the team’s bye week.
  • Patriots RB Fred Taylor was slowed by a toe injury against the Bills.
  • Lions rookie RB Jahvid Best (right big toe) left the game against the Vikings during the third quarter and didn’t return. Best said the injury was different from the sore toe that bothered him in Week 1. The Lions also lost RG Stephen Peterman (foot) during the second half.
  • Panthers LB Jamar Williams (neck) didn’t return after getting injured during the first quarter.
  • The Seahawks lost LB Aaron Curry (hamstring) during the second quarter and CB Marcus Trufant (ankle) during the third quarter.
