The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns were the only two NFC North teams to suffer injuries to key contributors in Week 3.

The AFC North went 2-and-2 on Sunday, with the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens picking up wins and the Cleveland Browns and PIttsburgh Steelers dropping their games. The good news for the four teams, though, is that all potentially escaped Sunday with no major injuries. That said, a few players did get banged up.

Steelers defensive lineman Ziggy Hood left Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders after injuring his knee on a Raiders' field goal kick. Hood was engaged with Raiders' guard Mike Brisiel on the play when his left knee was taken out by Willie Smith, though a penalty was not called. Hood limped off the field with help from the training staff, and his status has not been updated by the team.

Oft-injured Browns receiver Mohamed Massaquoi left Cleveland's game against the Bills in the first half with a hamstring injury. After the game, Massaquoi said he was hopeful that he would play in Cleveland's game against the Ravens Thursday, but coach Pat Shurmur was a bit more skeptical.

Both the Bengals and Ravens left Week 3 with clean bills of health, though more information on that front is always liable to be revealed in the coming week.
