Defensive end Richard Seymour left New England’s 23-7 win over the New York Jets with a leg injury in the third quarter yesterday.

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered a rib injury and left in the fourth quarter of the Steelers’ win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Steelers cornerback Deshea Townsend broke his right hand against the Ravens but said he can play with a protective cast.

Washington running back Clinton Portis left with a bruised chest against Dallas, and Redskins cornerback Fred Smoot left with a sprained lower back in the third quarter.

Jacksonville quarterback Byron Leftwich had a mild concussion in the first quarter of a loss to the Texans. Though he missed only one play, he wasn’t the same after — and finally was benched with 4:04 left in the game.

San Francisco quarterback Ken Dorsey, playing because of injuries to Tim Rattay, was sidelined with a bruised finger in a loss to the Buffalo Bills. And 49ers wide receiver Brandon Lloyd sat out the second half with a foot injury.

Detroit guard Damien Woody left the Lions’ game against Chicago in the third quarter with a hip injury. Saints safety Steve Gleason was taken to a hospital with a bruised lung during a win over Atlanta. Dallas tight end Jason Witten needed stitches on the bridge of his nose and will have X-rays to see if it’s broken.

Jacksonville running back Fred Taylor missed the loss to Houston with a sprained left knee, ending his streak of consecutive starts at 46 games. Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick was inactive with an injured shoulder.

Pittsburgh running back Duce Staley missed the Steelers’ game against the Ravens, the sixth time in eight games he was held out with a sore hamstring.

St. Louis guard Chris Dishman will miss the rest of the season after suffering torn knee ligaments in a workout Friday.

Tennessee offensive lineman Jacob Bell will miss the final game of the season and may miss part of training camp after tearing a ligament in his right knee. Bell was hurt in the second quarter of the Titans’ 37-16 loss to Denver on Saturday.
