It's Siemian's non-throwing shoulder. Rookie Paxton Lynch has come on for Siemian at QB for Denver.
Newton's day ended after he scored a 2-point conversion run that cut Atlanta's lead to 34-18 early in the fourth quarter. Falcons linebacker Deion Jones laid a clean hit on Newton near the goal line. Derek Anderson took Newton's place and Newton never returned to the game. If he does have a concussion, he'll need to go through the league's protocol before returning to action. The Panthers play on Monday night in Week 5 so owners will certainly need to have a backup plan.

Bryant made the trip with the team, but there seemed to be little chance he'd be able to play today. It's possible he can give it another shot for Week 5. The injury is reportedly a bone bruise to his knee.
Related players: Hunter Henry
Hunter Henry will get the start at TE for the Bolts. Henry played pretty well last week getting the bulk of the work at the position but did have a fumble which ended any Charger hopes of a comeback. He's a usable option as a low-end TE1, but the Saints are fourth in allowing fantasy points to TEs.
Related players: Garrett Celek
McDonald (hip) and Garrett Celek (back) were both questionable coming into this contest, but Celek is active and would appear to get the start today.
Washington had two carries for 6 yards and a reception for 8 yards. Theo Riddick should see a bulk of the work if Washington can't get back in the game.

Martin is inactive as expected. He's considered week-to-week. Charles Sims should see a big share of the workload with Martin out.

Through three weeks, Brown led the NFL in targets with 40. Roethlisberger has thrown just 35 passes combined to the team's other wide receivers.
That means 53.3 percent of Steelers passes going to wide receivers have gone to Brown.
For comparison's sake, Mike Evans, No. 2 in the NFL in targets, has been targeted on 42.9 percent of Tampa Bay's throws to wide receivers.
The story went on to say in the past three seasons, when Brown had more catches than any player over a three-year span in NFL history, he accounted for 44.4 percent, 48.1 percent and 47.8 percent, respectively, of Steelers wideouts targets. But those teams had dynamic receivers like Martavis Bryant and Emmanuel Sanders.

McDonald (hip) left the game in the first half. His status against the Cowboys will likely be a game-time decision. McDonald and Celek (back) returned to limited practice this week.
Bryant made the trip to San Francisco for tomorrow’s game against the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
It still seems extremely unlikely that Bryant will play after suffering a hairline fracture near his knee last week against the Bears. Reports have indicated Bryant will probably have to miss at least a couple games.
