McFadden leaves Super Bowl with hurt hip

BY foxsports • February 6, 2011

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Bryant McFadden and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders have left the Super Bowl with injuries.

McFadden injured a hip in the first quarter against the Green Bay Packers, and the Steelers said his return was questionable. It was unclear when or how McFadden was hurt.

Sanders left with a foot injury after making a 13-yard catch early in the second quarter. He was taken off the field on a cart.

Offensive tackle Flozell Adams injured his shoulder in the opening quarter when teammate Chris Kemoeatu slammed into his back during Nick Collins' 37-yard interception return for a touchdown that gave Green Bay a 14-0 lead with 3:20 remaining. Adams was replaced by Trai Essex at right tackle for a few plays before returning to start the second quarter.
