- The Bears lost veteran linebacker Lance Briggs for the game in their win over the Bucs after he suffered a groin injury. Cornerback Kyle Fuller also was ruled out with a knee injury. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Fuller's injury is likely a minor one and he should miss minimal-to-no time.
- On just his third carry of the season, Bucs fullback Jorvorskie Lane was carted off the field in their loss to the Bears with a right ankle injury and he is out for the game. Lane had his leg air casted and Lovie Smith said after the game the injury was serious. Buccaneers rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins suffered a back injury and did not return in their loss to the Bears. Safety Major Wright did not return with a shoulder injury.
- Dolphins cornerback Jamar Taylor was carted off during the third quarter against the Broncos and remained out. Rapoport added that Taylor dislocated his shoulder, according to a team source. The cornerback will undergo an MRI on Monday, but at this point, the injury doesn't appear to be season-ending.
