Campbell, Hillis and Polamalu Injured Sunday

Bears TE Devin Hester let the fourth quarter  with a chest injury.  That wasn’t until after he set the tone with a 48-yard touchdown catch and scored on a career-best 98-yard kickoff return against the Minnesota Vikings.

Rams QB Sam Bradford sprained his left ankle on the final play of Sunday’s loss to the Packers. X-rays came back negative, and Bradford didn’t sound concerned about his status after the game. It sounds like he’ll be ok for Week 7, but we’ll update his status when we learn more.

Raiders QB Jason Campbell broke his collarbone in the 2nd quarter of Sunday’s game against the Browns. The injury is expected to cost him the rest of the season. QB Kyle Boller was predictably mediocre in Campbell’s absence, completing 8 of 14 passes for 100 yards. He’s currently slated to take over as Oakland’s starter, although we wouldn’t be surprised if the team went after free-agent QB David Garrard.

Cowboys RB Felix Jones suffered a high-ankle sprain in the 2nd quarter of Sunday’s game against the Patriots. High-ankle sprains are usually 4-6 week deals for RBs, so owners need to prepare to be without Jones until late-November.

Browns RB Peyton Hillis pulled his hamstring early in Sunday’s game against the Raiders. He tried to play through it for a brief time but eventually headed to the sidelines for the rest of the day. He’s scheduled to undergo an MRI tomorrow.

Redskins TE Chris Cooley fractured the index finger on his left hand Sunday and will undergo surgery within the next few days. Insider Grant Paulsen hears that Cooley will miss 6 weeks. Washington may end up sticking him on IR. Cooley can be dropped in fantasy leagues.

Steelers S Troy Polamalu left late in Sunday’s game with a concussion. Early reports are that it was minor, but he’ll still need to pass his baseline tests in order to play next weekend.

Saints HC Sean Payton suffered a torn MCL and broken tibia when TE Jimmy Graham rolled into him during Sunday’s game against the Bucs. Payton showed incredible toughness, finishing out the 1st half from the bench and then moving up into the booth for the 2nd. He’ll undergo surgery this week but will continue to coach through the pain. A true warrior.

Minnesota C John Sullivan and S Jamarca Sanford out due to concussions. Sullivan was on the field for the Vikings’ first series in the third quarter and then left the game. Sanford left midway through the quarter.
