- Running back Raheem Mostert left the game in the first quarter with a head injury. He is currently in concussion protocol.
- Safety Marcell Harris had a stinger, but is good to go.
- Najee Toran had negative X-rays on his hand and is also available to return to practice.
- Finally, Jimmie Ward will have X-rays on his collar bone this week to determine if he will be able to participate in practice.
