Midway through the first quarter, when Mohamed Sanu took the shotgun snap for a no-gain sweep, rookie tight end Tyler Eifert jogged off the field with his arm freely dangling to his side. What appeared to be a wrist injury initially, turned out to be a stinger.

He returned for a few plays but then was declared out for the game.

Eifert's contribution in the passing game was a six-yard reception in the first quarter.
