Sunday Injury Round Up

Jesse Morse M.D.

Entering week one there were a lot of players that were injured, many with hamstring injuries.

The Thursday night game saw no significant injuries that are worth mentioning. Kelce initially had concern for a knee injury but never caused him any issues during the game.
Today’s games saw surprisingly less injuries than I had anticipated. In the 1 o’clock games there were a couple injuries, including Le’Veon Bell with hamstring injury, and Devante Parker leaving with a reinjury of his hamstring injury. Additionally Browns’ Njoku and Raiders’ Ruggs were both dealing with a knee injuries of unknown severities.
The most significant injury for the early games was Marlon Mack, going down with a potential season ending injury it appears to be a torn Achilles’ tendon in his right leg. Discussed here: https://youtu.be/HtD8ZJRx0IM  This is going to lead to the emergence of Jonathan Taylor and Nyhiem Hines.
The 4 o’clock games had no significant injuries of note. There was a large concern initially after George Kittle hyperextended his knee, but thankfully after me being evaluated he returned in the second half, but this will be something to monitor closely. Discussed here: https://youtu.be/BmGEdbvgt1s
The Chargers Justin Jackson suffered a quadriceps injury, that led to the emergence of rookie running back Joshua Kelley.
Brandon Aiyuk was a scratch with a hamstring injury. Bucs’ Mike Evans managed to suit up with his own hamstring injury and was relatively ineffective, but did manage a late touchdown.
Chargers Mike Williams, who is dealing with a shoulder sprain, was surprisingly able to do well despite what was initially described as a moderate injury.

Week 3 NFL Injury Review

Jesse Morse M.D.

Published

Week three was quite exciting. There were so many injuries in week two that I am happy to announce they were not as many significant injuries in week three. With many of the top players already banged up including Saquon Barkley, Christian McCaffrey, Michael Thomas, Chris Godwin, Devante Adams, and Julio Jones dealing with injuries over the past 10 days.
They were a couple of concussions to two wide receivers that ended their day’s early, including Diontae Johnson of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Russell Gage of the Atlanta Falcons.
The largest injury of the day appears to be a torn ACL for the recently extended Chicago Bears running back to Tarik Cohen. An MRI in the morning should confirm the unfortunate season ending injury.
The injuries continue to mount for the Philadelphia Eagles, already struggling with rookie Jalen Reagor‘s recent thumb injury, add in some miss time with Miles Sanders, a soon to return Alshon Jeffery and now add Dallas Goedert, who is dealing with a foot/ankle injury that could sign Hiren him a couple weeks depending on the imaging. DeSean Jackson also left the game early with a hamstring injury which I believe he was already dealing with but we aggravated.
The only team probably hurting more than the Eagles, besides maybe the Broncos is the San Francisco 49ers. Already without star tight end George Kittle who is likely to return in week four, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo who is dealing with a high ankle sprain, running back Raheem Mostert who should miss a couple weeks with an MCL injury and Tevin Coleman who is dealing with a knee injury of his own. Add in Deebo Samuel who is likely to return the next two weeks.
Replacement tight end Jordan Reed suffered an ankle injury today that needs to be monitored. Third string running back Jerick McKinnon suffered a rib injury today that could potentially hold him out of Week 4 depending on the severity.
Colts rookie wide receiver Michael Pittman suffered an ankle injury but was able to return to the game. Fellow wide receiver Paris Campbell was recently placed on IR after suffering both a PCL and MCL injury to his knee last week.
The Bills, who stormed back to beat the Rams and secure a 3-0 start. John Brown, who had been recently dealing with a foot injury, left the game early with a calf injury. These have a tendency to linger and usually will keep him out at least a couple weeks.
The Chargers Mike Williams, who suffered a grade 3 AC/shoulder sprain in training, camp re-injured his shoulder today. New should clarify the extent of his current injury. He returned much faster than traditional protocols so maybe he can repeat his magic again. Rookie Justin Herbert was in at QB for the chargers, after Tyrod Taylor who had been dealing with a rib fracture, received an injection before Week 3’s game which unfortunately punctured his lung, causing a pneumothorax. I expect him to miss a couple more weeks.
In a thrilling shoot out, Seahawks running back Chris Carson suffered a left knee sprain after a defender twisted his knee at the end of a play. Depending on the severity of the damage this could range from 1 to 4 weeks.
The Buccaneers wide receivers have struggled to stay healthy through the first three weeks of the season. Initially Mike Evans was dealing with a hamstring strain and then Chris Godwin suffered a concussion in Week 1, which kept him out of week two. Now Godwin strained his hamstring and it remains to be seen how long he’s going to miss now.
In the Sunday night game, New Orleans Saints, who should get Michael Thomas back in Week 4, potentially lost another receiving option, as tight end Jared Cook suffered a groin strain. These traditionally take about two weeks to heal, but can be much longer if it is a sports hernia.
I discussed the majority of these injuries today, find the links below.

NFL Week 2 Injury Review

Jesse Morse M.D.

Published

on

What a crazy week 2 it was. Several big-name players got injured this week, which just added on to the many that were injured in week one.

The most notable is Saquon Barkley, who I am concerned likely tore his ACL. His teammate Sterling Shepard also suffered a toe injury of unknown severity.

Christian McCaffrey, traditionally an Iron Man, suffered an ankle injury that caused him to miss the majority of the second half of the game. My initial concern was a high ankle sprain, but the video review was not very good. We should hear more over the next day or two.

Bears’ David Montgomery landed really awkwardly on his neck, but thankfully was cleared for any significant injuries and was able to return to the game.
The Rams Cam Akers suffered a rib injury, likely broken ribs early in the game and fellow running back Malcolm Brown suffered a finger injury later in the game, leading to Darrell Henderson, coming off of the hamstring injury of his own, to take over the backfield.
The Packers star wide receiver Davante Adams suffered a hamstring strain and had a sub par de as a result. With unknown severity it is unclear how long he will be out.
The Broncos suffered their fair share of injuries in week two. Quarterback Drew Lock suffered in AC sprain of his throwing shoulder that is likely going to cost him anywhere between two and six weeks depending on the severity. Courtland Sutton, coming off of a shoulder sprain of his own, returned only to leave early with a knee injury. Jerry Jeudy left temporarily with what was called a rib injury but returned shortly there after.
Colts Parris Campbell suffered a potentially serious knee injury early in the game which he was immediately ruled out for. Initial video review is concerning to me for possible MCL sprain or meniscal injury, unable to rule out ACL, but unlikely mechanism.
The San Francisco 49ers suffered likely the worst injuries of the day. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a high-ankle sprain that could cost him anywhere between two and four weeks. Star running back Raheem Mostert suffered a knee injury that sounds like an MCL sprain. Then they potentially lost two of their star defense of players with Nick Bosa suffering a potential season ending ACL tear, and Solomon Thomas suffered a knee injury of his own.
Will Fuller who has suffered numerous hamstring injuries in the past appeared to have re-injured his right hamstring, as he was shown being evaluated on the sideline. Fuller, who is fantastic in week one, did not record a single target war reception in week two.
The Jets Breshad Perriman who had been dealing with a meet injury suffered an ankle injury and never returned. Fellow Jets wide receiver Chris Hogan also suffered a rib as well.
The Chiefs Sammy Watkins appear to have sustained a concussion after taking a big hit. Darrell Williams suffered a ankle injury, and only accounted for one catch for 12 yards.
The Chargers quarterback going into the game was Tyrod Taylor, but he reported the reaggravated a rib injury warming up before the game and was not able to suit up. As a result rookie Justin Herbert was impressive and nearly defeated the defending champs Chiefs.
The Bills Dawson Knox suffered a concussion and Bengals C.J. Uzomah suffered a season-ending Achilles tear on Thursday night.
