The preexisting injury was aggravated late in the first half when Testaverde handed off to DeShaun Foster, and left guard Mike Wahle stepped on the quarterback's foot.

He finished the half but was replaced by David Carr after halftime, and was seen on the sideline with an ice pack on the ankle.

He completed 12 of 20 passes for 82 yards in the first half before leaving.
