The division saw some significant players stay on the turf over the weekend.
The New Orleans Saints suffered the most serious injury within the division during Week 11 when cornerback Jabari Greer suffered what appears to be a major knee injury.
Greer was hurt in the first quarter of the Saints' 23-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers. His knee bent awkwardly, and Greer was in obvious pain after the play, being carted off the field. There has been no official word on the severity of the injury yet.
The Carolina Panthers also received a scare on Monday night when defensive end Charles Johnson had to leave the game for over a quarter after being leg-whipped by New England Patriots guard Marcus Cannon. Johnson was heard screaming on the ESPN microphones while being attended to by medical staff, holding his knee.
However, Johnson returned to the game in the fourth quarter and appears to be alright.
The Atlanta Falcons stayed relatively healthy, only having backup quarterback Dominique Davis sustain a lower body injury against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Speaking of Tampa Bay, linebacker Mason Foster suffered a concussion. He will undergo a battery of tests throughout the week to determine his availability this Sunday.
