He was examined by trainers in the medical tent and was then carted to the locker room with an ankle injury, his day over. Today, the Packers put Rollins on injured reserve as he has a season-ending Achilles injury. This move allowed them to call up quarterback Joe Callahan to the roster.

Redskins lose Jonathan Allen and Bashuad Breeland

The Washington Redskins managed to fend off the San Francisco 49ers yesterday but victory came at a cost. They lost their first-round pick, defensive lineman Jonathan Allen out of Alabama, to a lisfranc sprain and expect him to miss about a month.

Head coach John Gruden said that Allen will visit with noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson to fully determine the severity of his injury.

Starting cornerback Bashuad Breeland left the game in the second quarter with a hamstring injury but returned in the second half. He then appeared to injure his knee after 49ers tackle Joe Stanley went low on a block. Breeland had to be helped off of the field, putting no stress on his left foot as he was taken to be examined. An MRI today determined that Breeland only has a knee sprain and he may play Sunday against the Eagles.

Patrick Peterson exits game

Star cornerback Patrick Peterson left the game in the fourth quarter of the Arizona Cardinals' victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because of a quad injury.

Kevin Zimmerman of Arizona Sports reported that head coach Bruce Arians said that Peterson's injury was due to a previous injury stiffening up on him.

Arians also added that he expects him to play in Sunday's London game against the Los Angeles Rams. Peterson himself reaffirmed this, saying, “I just re-aggravated it from last week. I didn't want to put my team in harm's way, and would rather put someone in whose 100 percent.”
