Giants defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul went to the locker room late in the first half of the Giants' loss to the Steelers. The team announced it was a groin injury for the big pass rusher.

After the game, Pierre-Paul told NJ.com he'll have an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the injury.

"It's just pulled," Pierre-Paul said. "Not too many details that I know. I'll know tomorrow for sure."

Here are the other injuries we are tracking Sunday:

1. Star safety Earl Thomas left the Seahawks' game against the Panthers on a cart after taking a hard hit from his teammate when he went up to try to intercept a Cam Newton pass. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported per sources Thomas suffered a broken bone in his leg. NBC's Michele Tafoya reported, per coach Pete Carroll, Thomas suffered a cracked tibia. He's out indefinitely, Rapoport added.

Thomas tweeted shortly after the injury:
