Pittsburgh second-year inside linebacker Devin Bush sustained what coach Mike Tomlin called a “significant knee injury” in Pittsburgh’s 38-7 rout of the Browns on Sunday.

Giants coach Joe Judge said receiver C.J. Board has movement in his limbs after suffering a concussion and neck injury in the team’s 20-19 win over Washington.

Bush, who had not missed a defensive snap all season, injured his left knee in the second quarter when he took an awkward step while attempting to break up a pass.

“Devin is a great player,” Steelers outside linebacker Bud Dupree said. “He’s one of the most underrated guys on the team, one of the fastest guys on the team, so anytime you lose somebody like that, it’s a big blow. But (Robert) Spillane came in and did well. He communicated well. Prayers up for Devin as he goes through recovery.”

Board was carted off the field and taken to a hospital after he was hit by safety Deshazor Everett while trying to catch a low pass on a crossing pattern in the third quarter of New York’s 20-19 win.

Earlier, Everett was whistled for a personal foul for a late hit on quarterback Daniel Jones following a third-down scramble.

Also, Giants cornerback Darnay Holmes suffered a neck injury in the game. Washington lost left guard Saahdiq Charles (left leg) on the second play from scrimmage and wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden was ruled out with a hamstring injury.

A case of strep throat kept Melvin Gordon out of Denver’s 18-12 win at New England, where Drew Lock, 23, became the youngest quarterback to win at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots lost right tackle Jermaine Eluemunor to an ankle injury in the first quarter, further scrambling their O-line, and defensive lineman Adam Butler left with an injured elbow.
