Monday news and notes

And the injuries continue to mount.

Patrick Crayton, WR, Dallas. Crayton is lost for the season with a broken ankle. Peerless Price now takes over the No. 3 spot in Dallas.

Randy Moss, WR. Oakland. Moss owners cringed when they saw their star wideout taken to the locker room Sunday. Moss has a pulled groin and bruised ribs.

Brian Griese, QB, Tampa Bay. Jon Gruden, who's been playing it loose with the injury report this season, said Griese could be out a couple of weeks or the rest of the season because of a knee injury. Thanks Jon.

Julius Jones, RB, Dallas. Jones didn't play Sunday, but Bill Parcells showed his love of veterans by going with Anthony Thomas instead of Tyson Thompson as expected, even though Thomas averaged just over two yards per carry on 21 attempts. Thanks Bill.

Fred Taylor, RB, Jacksonville. Greg Jones looked great in place of an injured Taylor Sunday at Pittsburgh. The Jags likely won't rush Taylor back and Jones may have gotten himself some more carries with his play.

Jake Delhomme, QB, Carolina. Delhomme appeared fine after getting knocked out of Sunday's game at Detroit on a cheap hit by safety Kenoy Kennedy.

Corey Dillon, RB, New England. You just can't trust Bill Belichick's injury reports. Dillon dressed by did not play after suffering an ankle injury last week at Atlanta. Patrick Pass and Amos Zereoue were New England's primary running backs Sunday. No wonder the Pats lost.

Sammie Parker, WR, Kansas City. Parker sprained his knee Sunday.

Joe Horn, WR, New Orleans. Horn reinjured his hurting hamstring. This is going to be a season-long problem.
