Big Weekend For Injuries In The NFL


Professional football often seems like a modern day gladiator sport, providing fans the opportunity to be entertained by large men colliding with one another at high speeds for three hours.

This past weekend was a demonstration of the risks facing NFL athletes, as a number of prominent players suffered injuries.

With no further ado, we bring you this week's NFL injury roundup:

  • Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered an injury to his throwing shoulder, leaving him doubtful for this Thursday's game against the Houston Texans.
  • Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, 2015's leading rusher, suffered a torn meniscus that could keep him out for a number of weeks or the remainder of the season.
  • Broncos linebacker Demarcus Ware broke his forearm on Sunday and is expected to miss over a month
  • Chargers running back Danny Woodhead tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the season
  • Browns quarterback Josh McCown - in the lineup to replace injured quarterback Robert Griffin III - went down with a shoulder injury that could keep him out for the team's upcoming game against the Dolphins
