It was a tough day for defensive backs.

Cleveland safety Tashaun Gipson, who leads the NFL with six interceptions, was carted off the field with a right knee injury after colliding with teammate Joe Haden. His knee bent awkwardly when he was in the air as he and Haden were defending on an incomplete pass to Atlanta's Julio Jones near the goal line.

Gipson was helped up and was supported as he tried to leave the field using only his left leg, but couldn't continue. He will have an MRI on Monday.
