Schaub was sacked by Antwan Odom and broke his fall with his left hand. He was down for a few minutes, then was helped to the locker room, holding his left arm. Texans coach Gary Kubiak said the team will evaluate Schaub on Monday.
``Matt has a dislocated shoulder, and that's all I know at this point,'' Kubiak said.
Schaub finished 3-for-5 for 34 yards. He was replaced by Sage Rosenfels, who threw for 185 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
The Texans also lost right guard Fred Weary in the second quarter to a season-ending broken right leg. Backup offensive lineman Chris White sustained a season-ending knee injury.
Titans running back LenDale White dislocated the middle finger on his right hand and needed stitches in the locker room. He didn't return to the game.
Lions receiver Roy Williams left Detroit's 42-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings with a right knee injury in the second quarter. The team initially called his return probable, and he was standing on the sideline wearing a wrap on the knee. But with the game out of reach after Minnesota built a 32-point lead early in the third quarter, Williams was ruled out for the rest of the day.
Williams caught five passes for 85 yards before the injury.
Linebacker Boss Bailey sustained an ankle injury and did not return, while cornerback Travis Fisher hurt his wrist. Coach Rod Marinelli said they'd all be re-evaluated Monday.
Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield missed the game because of a hamstring injury.
The Kansas City Chiefs were down to their third-team quarterback after Damon Huard hurt his hand late in a 24-10 loss to the San Diego Chargers. Tyler Thigpen replaced Huard, who started for the injured Brodie Croyle.
For much of the second half, the Chiefs also had two other starters sidelined: linebacker Donnie Edwards (hamstring) and left tackle Damion McIntosh (sprained knee).
The Arizona Cardinals, already playing without Larry Fitzgerald, lost Anquan Boldin, their other standout receiver, to an injured left foot in the third quarter of their 27-21 win over the Cleveland Browns.
Fitzgerald, the NFC's leading receiver, had been limited in practice by a groin injury.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb missed his second straight game because of a sprained ankle and injured thumb. A.J. Feeley failed to follow up his strong performance against New England, going 19-of-42 for 220 yards with four interceptions in a 28-24 loss to Seattle.
The Eagles also were missing two starters on defense: DT Brodrick Bunkley and SS Quintin Mikell. Seahawks cornerback Josh Wilson left with a leg injury in the first half.
Washington Redskins receiver Antwaan Randle El missed the first game of his six-year NFL career when a hamstring injury sidelined him for a 17-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Randle El had started in 91 games for the P Steelers and the Redskins.
Also injured for the Redskins were cornerback Shawn Springs (bruised back) and right tackle Todd Wade (bruised knee).
Colts receiver Marvin Harrison missed Indianapolis' 28-25 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars with a left knee injury that has kept him out six straight games. Defensive tackle Raheem Brock left the game in the first half with an undisclosed injury and didn't return.
Jacksonville defensive end Reggie Hayward injured a groin muscle.
Raiders quarterback Daunte Culpepper did not play in Oakland's 34-20 win over the Denver Broncos because of a sore right quadriceps. Josh McCown started in his place and top draft pick JaMarcus Russell got into the game for the first time.
Quarterback Jeff Garcia missed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 27-23 win over the New Orleans Saints because of a bruised lower back. Luke McCown started in his place.
Dolphins running back Jesse Chatman aggravated an ankle injury and missed most of the second half of Miami's 40-13 loss to the New York Jets. Safety Cameron Worrell hurt his knee and will undergo an MRI exam on Monday.
The Bears hoped to get Pro Bowl cornerback Nathan Vasher back, but he missed his ninth game with a groin injury, this one a 21-16 loss to the New York Giants.
The Giants were banged up in the secondary, missing cornerback Aaron Ross (hamstring) and safety Gibril Wilson (knee injury).
Panthers safety Chris Harris (shoulder) and 49ers safety Donald Strickland (knee) left Carolina's 31-14 win over San Francisco, but the injuries were not believed to be serious.
