Analysis: Cassel left Sunday's game after a 5-yard scramble to set up a field goal early in the second quarter. Coach Mike Zimmer says X-rays have revealed broken bones in the quarterback's foot. It is not clear how long Cassel will be out, but the injury leaves rookie Teddy Bridgewater as Minnesota's quarterback for the foreseeable future.

|Carey left Sunday with a hamstring injury - but not before he scored the game's first points on a 40-yard fumble return.

He tried to play on, but left the game a short while later. After the game Tulloch said, "I'm not embarrassed." Details of the injury are unclear.
|9/21/2014||LeSean McCoy, RB|
|McCoy returned Sunday against Washington after leaving earlier in the game when he appeared to take a helmet-to-helmet hit.

|9/21/2014||Danny Woodhead, RB|
|Woodhead is out indefinitely after hurting his right ankle in a 22-10 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Analysis: Coach Mike McCoy did not have an immediate update on the severity of Woodhead's injury except to say the player was going to have more tests after the team returned home. Woodhead was hurt on a 1-yard run, when he was stopped by diving defensive tackle Kyle Williams. Williams hit Woodhead directly in the right ankle, which appeared to twist underneath the player. Woodhead was briefly treated on the field before being loaded into a cart.

|9/21/2014||Khaled Holmes, C|
|The Indianapolis Colts will be without starting center Khaled Holmes against Jacksonville on Sunday.
Analysis: Holmes had been listed as probable with an ankle injury. He practiced all week, so it's unclear what happened that landed him on the sideline. A.Q. Shipley will start in his place.
