Injury Roundup: Week 1

For a game by game overview, see the injury page.

49ers
-TE George Kittle injured his leg. He returned for the second half, but wasn’t targeted.

Bengals
-RG Xavier Su’a-Filo injured his ankle and did not return.

Broncos
-Backup RB Phillip Lindsay injured his foot.
-CB AJ Bouye injured his shoulder in the closing minutes of the first half and did not return. Bouye is the Broncos top option at corner after Chris Harris retired.

Browns
-TE David Njoku sprained his MCL. He’ll be placed on short term IR.
-LT Jedrick Wills Jr. (leg) was injured week 1 and did not return.

Cardinals
-C Mason Cole injured his hamstring in the second quarter and did not return. Lamont Gaillard came in to replace him. Gaillard is a 6th round draft pick form 2019 who played his first NFL snap.
-S Jalen Thompson injured his ankle in the first half and did not return.

Chargers
-Backup RB Justin Jackson injured his quad. He could potentially be back next week, but it’s possible he’ll miss time.
-LB Drue Tranquill broke his ankle, which will likely end his season.

Cowboys
-TE Blake Jarwin (ACL) likely tore his ACL and is done for the season.
-LB Leighton Vander Esch suffered a clean fracture of his collarbone. He’ll be placed on IR and will be out 6-8 weeks.

Colts
-RB Marlon Mack suffered an achillies injury that will require him to miss the season. That will thrust rookie RB Johnathan Taylor into the top spot.

Dolphins:
-WR Devante Parker (hamstring) left the third quarter in week 1 and did not return. Parker has a history of hamstring issues. I wouldn’t be surprised if he places it safe and misses next week. He’s easily the top receiver on the Dolphins.

Eagles
-DE Vinny Curry suffered a “significant” hamstring injury, per HC Doug Pederson. He’ll miss significant time. Curry is a fantastic edge rusher, but the Eagles have lots of depth on the defensive line.
-RT Jake Driscoll (undisclosed) was injured week 1. He left in the 4th.
-DE Brandon Graham was evaluated for a head injury week 1.

Packers
-LG Lucas Patrick (should) was injured week 1. He left in the second quarter and did not return, but he is expected to be fine for week 2 after tests came back negative.
-RG Lane Taylor (knee) was taken off a cart. It’s a torn ACL, which will end his season. The Packers had to replace Taylor last year after a bicep injury in week 3. Their hope is Billy Turner, who missed last week due to a knee injury, can return.
-DT Kenny Clark (groin) was injured week 1. He left in the second quarter and did not return. Typically with groin injuries you can play through it.

Raiders
-RT Trent Brown (calf) was injured week 1. The thought is the injury isn’t bad enough to miss more than a week, even if that.
-RT Sam Young (groin) was injured week 1. Young was forced into action due to Brown being injured.

Rams
-TE Gerald Everett hurt his back. He missed time last year, which lead to TE Tyler Higbee’s breakout.

Ravens
-RT Ronnie Stanley (ankle) was injured week 1. He was hurt in the 3rd quarter and did not return. John Harbaugh said after the game he believes the injury is minor. Stanley is one of the better tackles in football.

Saints
-WR Michael Thomas appeared to be limping in the 4th quarter. He was oddly quiet throughout the game, so it’s something to look out for.

Steelers
-RB James Connor injured his ankle and did not return.
-G Stefen Wisnewski suffered a pectoral injury in the 4th quarter and did not return.
-RT Zach Banner suffered a knee injury in the 4th quarter and did not return.
