AFC East injuries, Week 9: Jeremy Kerley, Steve Gregory hurt

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

Many name players went down in Week 9, including some key ones in a highly competitive AFC East.

The New York Jets pulled off a major upset at home on Sunday afternoon, beating the New Orleans Saints 26-20.

However, wide receiver Jeremy Kerley had to leave the contest in the second quarter with an apparent elbow injury, per ABC News. Kerley was checked out on the sidelines for a few minutes before heading into the locker room and did not return. New York also was without safety Antonio Allen, who left with what appeared to be a head injury in the third quarter.

Linebacker Garrett McIntyre also was dinged up with a knee issue.

The New England Patriots had all kinds of health issues in their win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Safety Steve Gregory was forced to exit with a thumb injury, as was linebacker Rob Ninkovich with a foot ailment in the second half, per the Boston Herald. Wide receiver Austin Collie injured his knee in the first half and did not return.

The Buffalo Bills did not lose anybody to injury during their 23-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, but it is worth noting that running back C.J. Spiller was hobbled multiple times by his ankle which kept him from playing the prior week. Spiller still had a huge day with 155 total yards.
