Injury roundup: Sidney Rice has “mild concussion”


We try to handle the biggest injuries in the rumor mill throughout Sunday. We round up the rest right here:

1. Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice left in the third quarter with a head injury.  Mike Florio reports via a league source that Rice suffered a “mild concussion.”

2. Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin and safety Kam Chancellor also left the game with apparent head injuries.

3. Bengals receiver A.J. Green said he suffered a hyperextended knee against the Steelers.  A league source said he “should be fine.” He expressed confidence after the game he’d play next week. (Although players always express confidence after the game.)

4. Frank Gore said after the game that the knee injury that sidelined him for much of Sunday wasn’t serious. Florio said that Jim Harbaugh expressed confidence after the game that Gore would be fine for next week.

5. Giants linebacker Michael Boley left with a hamstring injury and did not return.

6. Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said that both cornerback Al Harris and tight end Michael Hoomanawanui could be done for the season with knee injuries.

  1. Patriots safety just hurt himself by leading with his helmet while trying to stop Tomlinson on 3rd and 2. I wonder if roger will fine him for being a dummy(after all, he did use his helmet)

  2. Only a mild concussion? Phew. He’ll be back to doing calculus by midweek?

    I kid. Make sure we take care of these athletes with this very serious topic. It’s the least football can do for them.

  3. Sid Rice is about as soft as they come, it’s the reason the Vikings decided against paying him the big bucks.

  4. Al Harris (playin pretty well) is the 9th CB to go on IR for the Rams. Yet they are bashed for being a bad team, but have the 12th ranked pass defense. The Patriots have that excuse for the worst pass defense in the leauge, but they aren’t bad, they’re just injured all over.

  5. And does anyone know how much ray Lewis was fined last week for the hit on ward. Everyone else’s fines amounts are put of there but all I saw about Lewis was an undisclosed amount. BTW, I don’t agree with all the fines, nor do I think what Lewis did was intentional.

  6. Al Harris is still around??

    best press/man corner i’ve seen!!

    (until Plaxico ruined him in the NFCCG)

  7. Im shocked. I thought all pft would be talking about would be the eagles lose, and andy reid being on the hot seat

    Dont risk Gore next week. Give him the time off and let Hunter and Dixon handle the load
    No joke, let the practice squad guys finish the rest of the season. They’ve basically got a playoff spot already.

  9. I would have liked Sidney Rice to stay with the Vikings because he fights for the ball unlike B squared. He is a good player.
