-- Here are the most significant NFL players who got banged up in Week 9:
Victor Cruz, WR, New York Giants:?Cruz suffered an ankle injury after hauling in a 46-yard catch in the second quarter. The team did not initially think it was serious. They officially listed him as probable to return, but Cruz was downgraded to questionable and then declared out after he got X-rays in the locker room.
Jeremy Maclin, WR, Kansas City Chiefs:?Maclin came into Week 9 nursing a groin injury. He was active Sunday but left the game in the first quarter after aggravating the injury. He was initially listed as questionable before being ruled out.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, New York Jets: Fitzpatrick left the game late in the third quarter after being hit low by Dolphins DT Jordan Phillips. The play drew a 15-yard penalty, and Fitzpatrick had his left knee examined by trainers on the sideline. Bryce Petty replaced him in the lineup and took his first NFL snaps. Fitzpatrick missed only four offensive plays before returning to the game.
Micah Hyde, S, Green Bay Packers:?Hyde left the game with a shoulder injury late in the fourth quarter. He did not return. If he's out for a significant period of time, it would be a big blow to a Packers secondary that is already missing Sam Shields (concussion) and Damarious Randall (groin).?
Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers :? Heyward-Bey had his right foot/ankle rolled up on early in the second quarter, as he was diving for a deep ball. The WR limped off the field and was almost immediately declared out for the remainder of the game.
Captain Munnerlyn, S, Minnesota Vikings :? Munnerlyn exited the Vikings' game early with ankle and knee injuries. He tried to return to the field for a play but ended up going to the locker room to get X-rays. He was seen on the sideline with a baseball cap on and his ankle wrapped. Munnerlyn said after the game that he'll get an MRI on Monday. Vikings CB Marcus Sherels also left Sunday's game with an ankle injury.
Derrick Henry, RB, Tennessee Titans :? According to ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky, Henry injured his calf badly enough in pregame warm-ups that he was unable to play, despite being active. The rookie will have an MRI on Monday.
Terron Armstead, LT, New Orleans Saints :? Armstead left Sunday's game in the first half with a left leg injury. The Saints' star left tackle was initially listed as questionable, but the team eventually ruled him out.
Ronald Leary, G, Dallas Cowboys :? Leary, a key cog in the Cowboys' dominant offensive line, left Sunday's game in the second half with a head injury. The team ruled Leary out for the remainder of the game;? Joe Looney replaced him in the lineup.
Maurkice Pouncey, C, Pittsburgh Steelers :?Pouncey left the Steelers' game against the Ravens in the first quarter with a thumb injury. He returned to the lineup for a while before leaving the game again and being listed as doubtful.
? Allen Hurns, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars: ? Hurns had his right ankle rolled up on from behind by his teammate Allen Robinson while he was blocking on a WR screen. Hurns returned to the field after missing a short period of time but was later ruled out after suffering a concussion.
Mike Wallace, WR, Baltimore Ravens :? Wallace caught a 95-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter but went to the locker room with the team doctor later in the half. The team did not announce a specific injury, but CBS reported on the game's broadcast that Wallace was being evaluated for an illness. He returned to the field in the second half.
