This is a brief recap of the injuries occurring during Sunday's games. A complete in-depth injury report will be published on Tuesday.

Josh Brown, PK, STL - Possible Sprained Knee

Brown was injured during Sunday's game and will be re-evaluated on Monday. The severity of the injury and his future playing status are currently unknown.

Jason Campbell, QB, WAS - Concussion and Stinger

Campbell told reporters that he “blacked out” when he was hit on the team’s final play of the game. He also said that his arm went numb which indicates that he may have suffered a stinger as well. The severity of his injuries and his status for Week 13 are currently unknown.

Brent Celek, TE, PHI - Torn Hand and Thumb Ligaments

Celek said after Sunday’s game that he played through torn ligaments in his hand and thumb. It isn’t clear how he was hurt, but he is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury. His status for Week 13 is in question.

Michael Clayton, WR, TB - Knee Injury

Clayton suffered an undisclosed knee injury during Sunday's game and couldn't finish the contest. He'll be re-evaluated on Monday to determine the severity of the injury and his possible playing status for week 13.

DeSean Jackson, WR, PHI - Concussion

Jackson left Sunday’s game after suffering a concussion. Based on early reports the concussion does not appear to be serious however he will undergo testing over the next couple of days and we won’t know what his status for the team’s next game will be until later in the week.

Eli Manning, QB, NYG - Foot Stress Reaction / Plantar Fasciitis

According to reports a recent bone scan on Manning's foot revealed a stress reaction in the cuboid bone of his right foot, a condition that can result in a stress fracture if the injured area isn't rested. Manning has been dealing with plantar fasciitis in his foot for much of the season and his over compensating has lead to an overload on his cuboid bone. He will reportedly try and play through the problem and it will be interesting to see how the medical staff prepares him for games as stress reactions get worse without full rest. His status for Week 13 is in question.

Shawn Merriman, LB, SD - Foot Inflammation

Merriman aggravated the tendonitis in his foot during Sunday’s game and the inflammation and pain prevented him from finishing the contest. The severity of the injury and his status for Week 13 are unknown.

Brandon Pettigrew, TE, DET - Knee Injury

Pettigrew's season is over after an MRI on his injured knee showed "significant damage". The exact nature of the injury has not been revealed, but the likely scenario is ligament damage that will require reconstructive surgery.

Eddie Royal, WR, DEN - Thigh Injury

Royal was unable to finish the game Thursday night after suffering a thigh injury in the second quarter. The injury isn't expected to be serious and early reports are that he'll practice some this week in preparation for playing week 13.

Matt Ryan, QB, ATL - Sprained Big Toe

Ryan left Sunday’s game after spraining the big toe on his right foot and did not return. The severity of the injury and his status for Week 13 are unknown.
