Danny Amendola, Alex Smith and Ryan Williams headlined a group of NFC West players who suffered injuries in Week 5.

Teams in the NFC West went 3-1 this week, with the lone loss coming from the Cardinals as they fell short to the Rams. While it was a successful week in the win column, multiple key offensive players were banged up with various injuries. Let's take a look at the injury report and how much time the players could miss.

49ers: Quarterback Alex Smith underwent X-rays on a non-throwing-hand finger that came back negative. According to coach Jim Harbaugh, Smith might have sprained a finger. Fortunately for the 49ers, the injury does not sound serious and he is not expected to miss any game time.

Cardinals: Ryan Williams, who made the start for injured running back Beanie Wells on Thursday night, suffered a big hit on his shoulder and left the game. The shoulder is sore, but Williams believes he should be fine to return in Week 6. The extra time off should pay dividend as he spends time in the training room.

Rams: The big loss for the Rams was wide receiver Danny Amendola. The young receiver dislocated his clavicle and is expected to miss at least a month. According to reports, Amendola's injury could have life-threatening given the injury's proximity to his trachea and aorta.

Seahawks: Seattle did not suffer any notable injuries in their win over the Panthers. The team has been fortunate enough to avoid the injury bug most of the season.
