Injury roundup: Browns lose Cribbs

  • It was a rough day on the injury front for the Browns, who lost WR Joshua Cribbs (foot), CB Sheldon Brown (shoulder) and LB Scott Fujita (knee) in the overtime loss to the Jets. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Cribbs dislocated four toes on his right foot.
  • Jets WR Jerricho Cotchery suffered a groin injury late against the Browns and wasn’t able to finish the game.

  • Vikings WR Percy Harvin (left ankle) and C John Sullivan (calf) were sidelined against Bears and didn’t return. Bernard Berrian was active but was a late scratch due to a groin injury.
  • Injuries to starter Chad Pennington (right shoulder) and former starter Chad Henne (left knee) forced the Dolphins to finish with third-stringer Tyler Thigpen. Coach Tony Sparano didn’t have an update on their status, and Albert Breer reports Henne will undergo an MRI exam tonight. NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reported it’s Thigpen who will likely start against the Bears Thursday night. The Miami Herald also reported LT Jake Long suffered a dislocated shoulder.
