Football continues to be a violent game. Week 4 of the NFL season saw plenty of injuries, though not too many big names went down.
Seahawks running back Fred Jackson hurt his ankle during Monday Night Football and Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar tore his ACL and MCL on Sunday night. Ravens receiver/trash talker Steve Smith Sr. has “some small microfractures in his back” after he was hurt in Baltimore’s Thursday night game. Primetime football was dangerous this week.
Here’s the rest of the Week 4 injuries we could find, grouped by body part. (We miss anything? Shoot us an email.)
The total number of injuries was pretty much the same as in Week 3 (38 this week, 39 last week), and concentrated in the lower extremities. There were also five reported concussions, up from four last week.
