This is a brief recap of the injuries occurring during the weekend's games. A complete detailed injury report will be published on Tuesday.

Anquan Boldin, WR, ARI – Strained Hamstring

Boldin was active on Sunday and he played throughout the game but he was held out of several plays as a precaution and he reportedly had his leg wrapped in ice afterwards. He should be closer to full strength for the Super Bowl.

Ryan Clark, DB, PIT – Possible Concussion

Clark was escorted off the field after a helmet-to-helmet collision with Ravens’ RB Willis McGahee. It appears that he may have suffered a minor concussion, however the exact nature and severity of the injury and his status for the Super Bowl are currently unknown.

Cory Ivy, DB, BAL – Possible Concussion

Ivy left Sunday’s game after getting hit hard by Steelers’ WR Limas Sweed. Team officials believe he may have suffered a concussion, but the nature and severity of the injury are still unknown. He should be healthy in time to take part in OTA’s.

Travis LaBoy, LB, ARI – Undisclosed Biceps Injury

LaBoy left Sunday’s game in the first half after hurting his left biceps and he did not return. The severity of the injury and his status for the Super Bowl are currently unknown.

Willis McGahee, RB, BAL – Undisclosed Ankle Injury and Concussion

McGahee appeared to injure his ankle in the fourth quarter but he was back in the game on the next series. Unfortunately he was knocked out when he was hit in the head by Steelers’ DB Ryan Clark. McGahee remained on the field for over 10 minutes and he was finally secured to a spine board and carted off the field. He has definitely suffered a concussion and he is scheduled to undergo testing on his head and neck to see if there is additional injury. McGahee has plenty of time to recover before the start of OTA’s.

Ben Roethlisberger, QB, PIT – Lower Back Contusion

Roethlisberger injured his lower back in the first quarter but he was back on the field for the next offensive series and he appeared to be OK. The injury does not look serious and he should be fine for the Super Bowl in two weeks.

Daren Stone, DB, BAL – Concussion

Stone left Sunday’s game after suffering a concussion on the opening kickoff. The severity of the injury is currently unknown, but he should be recovered when the team begins OTA’s.

Frank Walker, DB, BAL – Undisclosed Arm Injury

Walker left Sunday’s game with an arm injury and he did not return. Team officials are concerned that the injury is serious and his status for OTA’s is unknown.

Hines Ward, WR, PIT – Undisclosed Knee Injury

Ward injured his knee in the first quarter and he was in and out of the lineup during the remainder of the first half. The severity of the injury and his status for the Super Bowl are currently unknown.

Brian Westbrook, RB, PHI – Lingering Knee Soreness

Westbrook complained of soreness in his knee following Sunday’s loss. His injured knee has limited him throughout the playoffs and there are reports that he will probably have to undergo surgery to repair the damage.
