The Score - NFL Football

One thing is clear after Week 5, the Cleveland Browns quarterback situation is a mess. With both Cody Kessler and Charlie Whitehurst going down on Sunday, the Browns were forced to go exclusively to quarterback-turned-receiver Terrelle Pryor.

Here's a roundup of the notable names that suffered injuries in Week 5:

Marcell Dareus, Bills
Suffered a hamstring injury prior to being able to return from a four-game suspension.

Seen on crutches and in a walking boot following loss to Bills. Head coach Jeff Fisher offered no official update.

Cody Kessler, Browns
Set to undergo a CT scan on his ribs after being unable to return to Sunday's loss.

Charlie Whitehurt, Browns
Hyperextended his left knee late in Sunday's game. Said after the game he thinks he'll be fine.

Steve Smith, Ravens
Rolled his ankle and was unable to return to Sunday's game. Doesn't appear to be more serious than a sprain.

Hamstring injury held him out of the second half of Sunday's game.
