PLAYERS WHO LEFT GAMES SUNDAY BECAUSE OF INJURIES

* TROY AIKMAN--Quarterback suffered a concussion three minutes in second quarter of Dallas' 41-14 loss to Philadelphia and did not return.

It's the ninth career concussion for Aikman, who is in his 12th season.

* LANCE SCHULTERS--San Francisco's Pro Bowl safety was knocked out of the game on the first play from scrimmage in the second half of his team's 36-28 loss to Atlanta. A pile of players rolled into Schulters' left ankle. X-rays were negative, but he will undergo an MRI today.
