Jake Locker, Santonio Holmes headline Week 4 injuries (Shutdown Corner)

Sunday, September 30th, 2012
Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker re-injured his left (non-throwing) shoulder when he was hit by blitzing Houston Texans safety Glover Quin in the first quarter of the Texans' 38-14 win on Sunday. Locker suffered a dislocated shoulder in the 2012 regular- season opener against the New England Patriots and has been playing with a harness ever since. The 2011 first-round pick out of the University of Washington will undergo an MRI on Monday, at which point his status for next Sunday's game against Jared Allen and the Minnesota Vikings will be determined. Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha injured his eye while attempting to press New York Giants wide receiver Ramses Barden at the line of scrimmage with around 12 minutes to play in the second quarter on Sunday night. Barden appeared to inadvertently poked Asomugha in the right eye and reports from the sideline were that he was sent to Wills Eye Hospital, but that turned out to be a false alarm as the cornerback returned to the field in the second half and was flagged for and drew pass interference penalties on the final drive of the Eagles' 19-17 win over the Giants. The Giants lost safety Kenny Phillips to a right knee injury in the first quarter. According to Jenny Vrentas of The Star-Ledger, head coach Tom Coughlin wasn't sure how much time Phillips would miss . As if the New York Jets do not have enough problems, wide receiver Santonio Holmes left Sunday's 34-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers with a foot injury. Holmes was injured while making a 4-yard reception on the opening play of the fourth quarter. The injury was of the non-contact variety and to add insult to injury, Holmes let go of the football, which was scooped by 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers and returned 51 yards for a touchdown. Holmes was carted to the locker room and will undergo an MRI on Monday. While the playing status of the veteran receiver will not be known until Monday, Holmes' financial future is secure. Holmes is earning $7.75 million in fully guaranteed base salary this season and, because he was on the Jets' roster on Feb. 12, 2012, $7.75 million of his $11 million base salary next season is fully guaranteed.
