Indianapolis Colts: Rookie TE Dallas Clark fractured his right fibula in Sunday's 38-34 loss to the New England Patriots and will undergo surgery later this week. Clark landed awkwardly on his right foot after corralling a Peyton Manning for eight yards in the second quarter and immediately knew he was seriously injured. "I felt it pop," Clark told the Indianapolis Star. "I knew it was something not good. It was a weird hit. I really lost control of where I was and couldn't get my feet where they needed to be." Despite his rookie status, the loss is significant. For the season, he is the team's fifth leading receiver with 29 receptions for 340 yards and one touchdown.

Baltimore Ravens: Line Judge Carl Peterson was hit on the chin during a celebration and suffered a concussion. LB Ed Hartwell raced in to leap on the pile in the end zone after a Ray Lewis interception and his shoulder pad clipped Peterson and sent him tumbling to the ground. Peterson was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center as a precaution, but he was lucid and had feeling in all his extremities, according to the Washington Post. He later was released. "I was celebrating with my guys," Hartwell told the Post. "I didn't even feel it, to tell you the truth. I saw him on the ground and I was like, 'What happened to him?' And they said I nicked him. I'll give out a formal apology: I never tried to knock him down. I was just trying to celebrate with Ray on his interception for a touchdown."

Pittsburgh Steelers: LT Marvel Smith's triumphant return to the lineup after missing most of the season with a pinched nerve in his neck and shoulder lasted all of six quarters. Smith played a full game last week but the injury flared up and according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette he had to leave the game in the second half. In Smith's absence, G Alan Faneca to move to left tackle and OL Keydrick Vincent to play left guard. Follwing the game Smith said he could not comment on the injury.
