Cortez Kennedy, the Seattle Seahawks' six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle, underwent surgery Monday after sustaining a broken left leg in Sunday's 37-31 victory at San Diego.
Seahawk Coach Dennis Erickson said team doctors indicated there was a chance Kennedy could return for the Dec. 7 game against the Ravens in Baltimore.
The Buffalo Bills handed the starting quarterback job back to Todd Collins after he struggled less than Brad Van Pelt in a 31-10 loss to the New England Patriots.
Collins, who completed 12 of 21 passes for 89 yards with one interception, was the starter for the first eight games before being benched against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 26. Van Pelt completed three of 12 passes for 38 yards with three interceptions.
Add Kelly Holcomb to the list of injured quarterbacks for the winless Indianapolis Colts, leaving Coach Lindy Infante uncertain who would be available to face defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay on Sunday.
Holcomb made his first NFL start in Sunday's 28-13 loss to Cincinnati and Infante said that he had played the entire second half with a fracture in his left wrist. Jim Harbaugh has missed the last two games because of a broken bone in his passing hand after a scuffle with NBC sportscaster Jim Kelly on Oct. 25. Backup Paul Justin dislocated the middle finger on his non-passing hand on Nov. 2.
Holcomb was wearing a hand cast, Harbaugh had a protective wrap on his hand and Justin had a split on his non-throwing hand when the team met Monday.
With starting fullback Stanley Pritchett sidelined because of a dislocated kneecap, the Miami Dolphins signed former Indianapolis fullback Roosevelt Potts, who was released by the Colts last week.
