Jacksonville Jaguars: Tight end Kyle Brady thinks he might be out until Week 4 after having surgery this week on his middle finger.

Brady had a pin inserted to repair a ruptured tendon. The recovery time for that procedure usually is three weeks, which would be Tuesday, Sept. 21, but Brady isn't sure he would have enough preparation time to play that Sunday against the Titans.

Brady has been replaced by Todd Yoder in the Jaguars' lineup.

"[The Tennessee game] might be kind of a short turnaround, but we'll see,'' Brady told the Jacksonville Times-Union.

Seattle Seahawks: Seattle fullback Chris Davis, who missed last season with a torn ligament in his left knee, injured his right knee in the final game of the preseason.

Davis, drafted from Syracuse in 2003, got tangled up with a Vikings player while running to make a tackle in Thursday's 23-21 victory over Minnesota.

He had to be helped off the field and was carted into the Seahawks' locker room for X-rays.

The team did not release any details about the injury after the game or on Friday, and did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press on Saturday.

Davis, 24, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on the opening kickoff of the 2003 season opener and was placed on injured reserve. He had surgery and came back for training camp this summer.

Cleveland Browns: Running back Lee Suggs suffered a neck "stinger" in practice Wednesday and sat out Friday night's preseason finale against the Bears.

Cleveland is holding out hope that Suggs will be ready for the Sept. 12 opener against Baltimore.

Denver Broncos: Injured running back Mike Anderson was fined $2,500 by the NFL for an illegal chop block during the Broncos' 31-17 preseason victory against Houston on Aug. 27, a league spokesman confirmed.

Anderson tore both muscles in the left groin area off the bone in that game and is out for the season. At this point, a specialist has recommended that Anderson let the injury heal instead of undergoing surgery.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
