Veteran running back Matt Forte suffered a knee injury early in the first quarter of New York's win over the 49ers and was quickly ruled out for the remainder of the contest. Forte has been one of the few bright spots in what has been a very disappointing year for Gang Green.
New York's secondary was also bit by the injury bug. Cornerback Buster Skrine was ruled out with a head injury. Safety Marcus Gilchrist suffered a season-ending torn patella tendon and will need surgery. Tight end Brandon Bostick left with an ankle injury and did not return.
Here are the other injuries we're monitoring Sunday:
Dolphins coach Adam Gase said after the game that the injury "doesn't look good" and that they'll confirm the severity of the injury on Monday. Gase said the fear is that it was an ACL injury.
- Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford badly dislocated the middle finger on his throwing hand, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of his condition. Rapoport adds the finger is described as "a solidly jammed knuckle." Stafford is expected to play through the injury for the rest of the Lions' campaign and not undergo surgery.
- Redskins linebacker Su'a Cravens may have suffered a partially torn biceps, Rapoport reported. An MRI will determine his next step.
- The Vikings ruled out cornerback Trae Waynes (concussion) and wideout Laquon Treadwell (ankle) after they suffered injuries.
- Packers tight end Jared Cook was held out Sunday for precautionary reasons after suffering a lung contusion, Rapoport reports. Cook is expected to be OK.
- Niners tight end Vance McDonald was ruled out with a shoulder injury. Wide receiver Torrey Smith was also ruled out with a concussion; the veteran was tended to on the field for an extended period of time before being carted off.
