Here are the most significant NFL injuries in Week 10:

Sunday

Joe Haden, CB, Pittsburgh Steelers: Haden fell awkwardly after colliding with Donte Moncrief near the end of the first quarter and had to be helped off the field. He was brought to the medical tent on the sideline, then to the locker room for further evaluation of his left leg. Coty Sensabaugh replaced him in the lineup. The Steelers deemed him questionable to return. He was downgraded to out early in the third quarter.

Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers: A knee injury befell Jones during the first quarter against the Bears, and he was carted off to the locker room. The club designated him questionable to return, before later downgrading him to out. Per ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, there is concern that it could be a significant injury. Ty Montgomery took over as the primary rusher after Jones’ exit, but was then knocked out of the game himself.

Ty Montgomery, RB, Green Bay Packers: After battling broken ribs earlier this season, Montgomery was knocked out of the game against the Bears with a rib injury again. Given that Aaron Jones is also out, Jamaal Williams and fullback Aaron Ripkowski are next men up for the Packers’ backfield.

Mike Mitchell, S, Pittsburgh Steelers: Mitchell exited the game during the third quarter, and was brought back to the locker room to have his ankle examined. He was declared questionable to return.

Morris Claiborne, CB, New York Jets: Battling a nagging foot injury in recent weeks, Claiborne took himself out during the first half against the Bucs. Following halftime, Claiborne remained out of the game, and the team declared him doubtful to return due to the foot issue.

Deshazor Everett, S, Washington Redskins: After sustaining an eye injury late in the second quarter against the Vikings, Everett was taken to the locker room. The Redskins declared him questionable to return.

Shareece Wright, CB, Buffalo Bills: Wright was shaken up after making a play on Saints WR Brandon Coleman during the second quarter and left the field with some assistance. He returned to the game shortly thereafter.

Rob Kelley, RB, Washington Redskins: Kelley appeared to suffer a leg injury as he was tackled late in the first quarter. He was declared questionable to return with a knee/ankle injury, but downgraded to doubtful in the third quarter.

Jamie Collins Sr., LB, Cleveland Browns: In the course of making a tackle in the first quarter of the game against the Lions, Collins knee appeared to bend awkwardly, and he was removed from the game. The Browns declared him questionable to return, but downgraded him to out early in the second half.

Ryan Grant, WR, Washington Redskins: Grant left the game in the first quarte and was placed in the concussion protocol. After initially clearing Grant, the Redskins medical staff elected to run more tests and subsequently ruled Grant out for the remainder of the game.

Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: Heyward-Bey sustained a left foot injury during the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Colts, and he was deemed questionable to return. The speedster made his return on the Steelers’ final drive of the first quarter.

Thursday

Richard Sherman, CB, Seattle Seahawks: Sherman exited the game in the third quarter of the Seahawks’ win over the Cardinals and did not return after suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon. He will miss the remainder of the season.

Duane Brown, OT, Seattle Seahawks: Playing in just his second game for the Seahawks after a trade from the Texans, Brown left the game late in the second quarter against the Cardinals due to an ankle injury. He did not return, and Matt Tobin replaced him at left tackle.

Drew Stanton, QB, Arizona Cardinals: Stanton, playing in place of the injured Carson Palmer, sustained a knee sprain during the club’s loss to the Seahawks, per ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. He is expected to miss a week or two, and Blaine Gabbert will step in as the starter if Stanton cannot play in Week 11.
