NFL Week 6 injury roundup: Odell Beckham Jr. escapes serious injury
Monday October 17th, 2016

The Giants and Steelers both dodged a bullet when they had star players leave Sunday’s game with injuries.

Odell Beckham was sidelined for much of the second quarter after being diagnosed with a hip pointer but returned for the final drive of the half. 

Ben Roethlisberger was knocked out of the Steelers’ game against the Dolphins with a left knee injury, the same knee that caused him to miss four games last season. He returned at the start of the second half. 

Elsewhere, Bills running back LeSean McCoy injured his leg but was cleared to return for the second half. 

A full list of injuries we’re tracking is below. 

Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers — Knee, returned

Landry Jones replaced Roethlisberger under center at the end of the first half. 

Odell Beckham Jr., Giants — Hip, returned

With Beckham sidelined, Eli Manning threw a touchdown pass to Roger Lewis. 

LeSean McCoy, Bills — Leg, returned

McCoy was injured late in the first half but was back on the field after halftime. 

Carlos Hyde, 49ers — Shoulder, returned

Shaun Draughn is Hyde’s backup.

Jordan Poyer, Browns — Concussion, out

Poyer was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation and diagnosed with a lacerated kidney, in addition to the concussion. The fourth-year player is the starter at free safety. 

Dion Sims, Dolphins — Concussion evaluation, returned

Sims has been the starter at tight end while Jordan Cameron continues to recover from a concussion. 

Eddie Royal, Bears — Toe, out

Royal has more receptions this season than Alshon Jeffery. 

Michael Bennett, Seahawks — Knee, did not return

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said after the game it was just a "sore knee." 

Davante Adams, Packers — Concussion evaluation, did not return

If Adams has to miss any extensive time, it would be a big blow for a Packers offense that is already reeling due to poor play.
