A report says that a starting Green Bay Packers defensive back has a fracture in his back.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com says Davon House has "a transverse process fracture in his back." He says most players have returned to action within one or two weeks.
House left the Packers-Browns game late due to injury. He was already listed as doubtful with a shoulder injury.
Sportinjuryclinic says that a transverse process is "a bony protrusion from the back of a vertebrae bone in the spine."
It explains that the injury involves both sudden pain at the time of injury and decreased range of motion, but that it does not offer risk of damage to the spinal cord.
