In a lost season for the New York Giants, a concussion kept Victor Cruz from reaching a personal milestone.

The team's top receiver was injured in the fourth quarter of a 23-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Cruz left 2 yards short of his third straight 1,000-yard season. He caught two passes for 25 yards before getting hurt.

The Giants (5-9) have two games left. They are stuck with their first losing year since 2004.

Cincinnati punter Kevin Huber left Sunday night's game after taking a hard hit from Pittsburgh's Terence Garvin on a 67-yard kick return for a touchdown by Antonio Brown.

Huber was down on the field for several minutes. His mouth was bloody as he walked to the Bengals' locker room with what the team called a "dental injury."

Bengals linebacker James Harrison, making his first appearance in Pittsburgh since signing with the Bengals in the off-season, left in the first quarter because of a concussion.

The Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay both lost players in the Packers' 37-36 win.

Starting defensive end Johnny Jolly came out with a shoulder injury in the first half. He didn't return.

Packers tight end Brandon Bostick also left with a foot injury.

After Dallas starting linebacker Justin Durant exited with a hamstring, backup linebacker Ernie Sims needed X-rays when he hurt his left hip on the final play of the first half.

Jacksonville backup guard Mike Brewster broke his left ankle in the Jaguars' 27-20 loss to Buffalo.

The Cleveland Browns lost star cornerback Joe Haden in the second half with a hip pointer. His absence allowed Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler to pick on rookie cornerback Leon McFadden in the Bears' 38-31 win.
