And that was just the running backs. We'll use this post to round up all the next-day news, updating it throughout Monday.
- Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz said that tests on Reggie Bush's knee injury "were encouraging." Schwartz also said Bush's injury won't be a long-term problem, but it could be "medium-term." Schwartz added that defensive tackle Nick Fairley's shoulder injury is "day to day." Fairley was inactive in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
- NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a person who has spoken with the player, that Denver Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady has been diagnosed with a Lisfranc sprain that might sideline him for an extended period of time. In a worst-case scenario, the Broncos fear Clady's season could be over, according to Rapoport.
- Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith announced that defensive end Kroy Biermann (Achilles) and fullback Bradie Ewing (shoulder) will be placed on season-ending injured reserve. Biermann is a key loss for a defense already short on lineman. He's a solid pass rusher who can handle a variety of roles. The Falcons are weak on the outside.
- Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman told reporters Monday that tests on tight end Martellus Bennett's injured shoulder came back negative. "He's got a bruise but nothing significant and with full range of motion today," Trestman said. Bennett should be ready for the Pittsburgh Steelers on "Sunday Night Football."
- San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd was carted off the field with a neck injury suffered during Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Rapoport reported Monday that Floyd is getting a second opinion but is out indefinitely, per a source who had been in contact with the player. Floyd will be in a neck brace for at least a week, Rapoport reported.
