NFL notebook: Eagles' Wentz injures knee in win vs. Rams

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz left Sunday's 43-35 win against the Los Angeles Rams on with a knee injury in the third quarter.


After the game, reports surfaced that said the Eagles believe Wentz might have a torn MCL. Wentz is headed for an MRI exam to determine the severity of the injury.

Wentz, who threw four touchdown passes, absorbed a punishing blow when trying to run in for a score. He made it to the end zone, but a holding penalty negated the score.

Nick Foles took over in the fourth quarter for the Eagles.

--New York Jets quarterback Josh McCown broke his left hand when he took a hit from Denver Broncos linebacker Shane Ray as he released a pass.

McCown, left the game under his own power and headed to the locker room for further examination of a left hand injury with 2:54 remaining in the third quarter of a 23-0 loss. After the game, the Jets announced McCown broke his hand.

Backup Bryce Petty, who replaced McCown, had come in for two plays earlier in the game when the starter was hit simultaneously by two defenders at the end of an 8-yard scramble.

--Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier, who underwent spinal stabilization surgery Wednesday after sustaining a severe back injury against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night, remains hospitalized but continues to show gradual improvement.

Doctors are controlling and limiting his movement as they wait for the swelling and bruising in his back to subside, people familiar with his condition told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Sunday.

According to the report, it is premature to say whether Shazier will be able to play football again as the focus remains on his recovery. The team says it is concerned solely about his short- and long-term health.

A Pro Bowl selection last season, the 25-year-old Shazier spent Monday and Tuesday night at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center before being transferred to a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center facility.

--Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper left midway through the second quarter with an apparent leg injury in the game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Cooper was blocking on an outside run by DeAndre Washington when the ball carrier and a tackler rolled up on the wide receiver from behind. Trainers tended to Cooper on the field before the veteran wideout limped to the sideline under his own power. Trainers were seen working on Cooper's left ankle.

--Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy sustained a biceps injury in the first quarter of the game against the Detroit Lions at Raymond James Stadium.

McCoy's did not return to the game and is headed for an MRI exam.

McCoy entered game with a team-leading five sacks to go along with 40 tackles and an interception this season.

--Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman was escorted to the locker room and evaluated for a concussion during the third quarter of the snow-ravaged game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Also, Buffalo wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin injured his right knee during the third quarter. He returned in the fourth quarter, however.

Peterman was injured after he dove at the end of a 2-yard run and was tackled by Colts defenders Antonio Morrison and Johnathan Hankins. There was no penalty on the play and Peterman appeared to hit his head on the ground.

--Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage suffered a concussion in the second quarter and did not return for the second half against the San Francisco 49ers at NRG Stadium.

Savage was slow to his feet after he was hit in the end zone by 49ers defensive end Elvis Dumervil with just under 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter.

Savage entered the sideline medical evaluation tent following the drive and returned to the field when the Texans regained possession.

--Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House suffered a back injury with about 11 minutes to play in the game with the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium.

House was taken from the field on the back of an equipment cart and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. He was able to walk to the cart.

House was injured while covering Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon on a pass play.

--Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan left Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals in the second quarter with a lower back injury and did not return.

After the game, the Titans said Lewan will undergo an MRI exam.
