Week 6 injury roundup: DeMarco Murray sprains foot

It was a crazy week in the NFL. Unfortunately, there also was a spate of injuries that will have repercussions for weeks to come. Let's break it all down.

1. Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray sprained his foot during a 31-29 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He'll have an MRI on Monday. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he had "no idea" if Murray would play next week. Cornerback Morris Claiborne also left the game but was able to return. Running back Felix Jones left the game at one point with cramps.

2. It's believed that Ravens cornerback LarDarius Webb tore his anterior cruciate ligament against the Cowboys. Jeff Darlington of NFL.com and NFL Network reports the Ravens fear linebacker Ray Lewis tore his triceps. The severity is unclear. Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata also will undergo an MRI on his knee. He was able to return to the game after suffering the injury.

3. Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson injured his "flank" during a 34-24 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. That's a new one. Richardson says he'll be ready to play next week, but he'll have an MRI on Monday to make sure.

4. New England Patriots wide receiver Brandon Lloyd hurt his shoulder while diving for a pass during the final drive of a 24-23 loss to the Seattle Sehawks. He didn't return.

5. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb took a shot to the ribs late in a 19-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He didn't return. Kolb hurt his ribs in the preseason, too. John Skelton finished out the game under center. The Cardinals have managed to have one healthy quarterback at all times, which will have to suffice. Their safety, Kerry Rhodes, also left with a non-contact injury and didn't return.
