• It was a tough day for quarterbacks. St. Louis' Sam Bradford, Chicago's Jay Cutler and Philadelphia's Nick Foles all left with injuries Sunday. Bradford was hurt in the fourth quarter of a 30-15 loss to the Panthers when he landed on his left knee after being shoved out of bounds by Panthers safety Mike Mitchell. Coach Jeff Fisher said Bradford “was in significant pain on the sideline.”

• Cutler injured his groin while being sacked in the second quarter against the Redskins and didn't return. Asked how seriously Cutler was hurt, Bears coachMarc Trestman replied: “I don't have any sense at all. I'm just going to wait and see what the doctors say.” Cutler is scheduled to have an MRI exam Monday.

• Foles suffered a head injury when he was sacked by George Selvie and Jarius Wynn on the final play of the third quarter. There was no word on the extent of Foles' injury.

Devin Hester of the Bears tied Hall of FamerDeion Sanders' NFL record with his 19th return for a touchdown. Hester brought back a punt 81 yards for a score against the Redskins. It was his 13th punt return for a TD, extending his own record in that category.

• Tampa Bay lost running back Doug Martin to a shoulder injury. Martin said he is “not sure yet” whether he will play in Thursday night's game against Carolina.

• Houston's Arian Foster hurt his hamstring in the first quarter. Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Cushing left in the third quarter with what appeared to be a left knee injury.

• Bengals cornerback Leon Hall hurt his Achilles' tendon in the 27-24 win over the Lions. “It seems pretty significant,” coach Marvin Lewis said.
