Injury updates on Gonzalez, Hayward
Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky
Two pieces of injury news pertinent to the AFC South:
Indy receiver Anthony Gonzalez: Adam Schefter confirmed an NFL.com report that Gonzalez strained a knee ligament and will miss two to six weeks. That’s a big range that could mean he misses only away games at Miami and Arizona or his absence could extend to games against Seattle, at Tennessee, beyond the bye to an Oct. 25 game at St. Louis.
Jacksonville defensive end Reggie Hayward: Michael C. Wright (@jagsreporter) tweeted this -- "X-ray reveals #Jaguars DE R Hayward has fracture of lower left leg that might require surgery, Jack Del Rio just told me."
Reggie Hayward had the team’s lone sack of Peyton Manning Sunday and is the team’s top veteran presence among its defensive ends. Derrick Harvey is the team’s other starter and like Harvey, Quentin Groves is a second-year man. James Wyche and undrafted rookie Julius Williams were both inactive for Sunday’s loss in Indianapolis.
