AFC East injury report, Week 13: Santonio Holmes leaves, Josh Cribbs injured

Jeff Zelevansky

It was a rough week for the Jets, both on the scoreboard and on the injury report.

It was an up-and-down week for the AFC East with two of the teams picking up wins and two others suffering potentially devastating losses.

Miami and New England both won in Week 13 and managed to do so without taking any significant hits on the injury report. Buffalo also managed to get through the week without major injury while the Jets lost, 23-3, to Miami and are now extremely thin at wide receiver.

Here's a complete look at the AFC East injury situations.

Buffalo Bills:

C.J. Spiller was seen noticeably limping at times on Sunday, but said his ankle was "fine," according to Jay Skurski. Robert Woods returned from an ankle injury and made it through the game, while also catching a pair of passes. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams was active despite being listed as questionable.

Miami Dolphins:

After battling injuries throughout the season, Miami is getting closer to being healthy and made it through the game on Sunday without any setbacks. Center Mike Pouncey played despite a gallbladder issue while wide receiver Rishard Matthews was able to play through a back injury. Cornerback Dimitri Patterson was the only key player inactive due to injury.

New England Patriots:

Kenbrell Thompkins suffered a hip injury early against Houston. He returned to the field, but was forced out once again after just three snaps, according to Mike Reiss. The Patriots made it through the game without any other notable injuries, although New England was forced to play without Alfonzo Dennard and Aaron Dobson due to injury.

New York Jets:

New York was blown out by Miami on Sunday, losing its third straight game. The Jets also took some injury hits. Santonio Holmes attempted to play despite a hamstring injury, but was limited to just three plays before sitting out the rest of the game, according to Jane McManus. Fellow wide receiver Jeremy Kerley was inactive due to an elbow injury and Josh Cribbs suffered a shoulder injury which Rex Ryan said he thought was "pretty serious," according to Dennis Waszak Jr.
