NFC West injuries: Cardinals S Rashad Johnson loses part of his finger


The NFC West was dealt some injuries blows in Week 3.

The NFC West had a rough week with a combined 1-3 record and the loss of players to injuries both minor and major. Below is a look at who was injured in the division during Sunday's games:


The 49ers were embarrassed at home in a 31-7 loss to the Colts, but suffered a bigger loss on the injury front. Starting linebacker Patrick Willis is likely to miss Thursday night's game against the Rams with a groin injury that he suffered in Week 3.


St. Louis running back Daryl Richardson re-injured his foot in a 31-7 loss to the Cowboys. Richardson had been dealing with the injury all week and Isiah Pead replaced him during the game against Dallas. An update on his condition is expected on Monday.


In perhaps the grossest injury news of Sunday, Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson lost part of this left middle finger against the Saints. It is unclear how Johnson suffered the injury. He had surgery on Sunday and his finger was shaved to his first knuckle on his middle finger. Ouch.


The Seahawks are dealing with two minor injuries following their win against the Jaguars. Defensive end Red Bryant has back spasms and wide receiver Jermaine Kearse suffered a sprained ankle.
