After the game, McNabb sounded like he was looking forward to a week off and healing up. "It's an opportunity to kind of get away from things and try to heal up a little bit more and come back ready to go in two weeks. You never want to leave on a bye week after something like this, but it might be something we need..."

Boston was sidelined on Sunday due to his injured knee (probable on Friday's injury report). Coach Saban commented "David had some swelling in his knee. He's had it off and on. He had some swelling in his knee on Friday. We actually sent him to the doctor. We're probably going to do some further examination [today]. It was strictly an injury situation. I'm sure if you ask him as I did, he would say he could have played today. And I think he probably could have, but as a coach, I need to make a decision based on feeling better about what's making his knee swell up so we're not putting the guy at risk when we put him out there to play."

WR Isaac Bruce - STL

Bruce was sidelined again this week due to his ongoing turf toe injury (doubtful on Friday's injury report).

WR Eddie Drummond - DET

Drummond was unable to continue play on Sunday after suffering a left shin bruise during the opening kickoff. The Lions are almost out of healthy wide receivers at this point.
