Six weeks into the NFL season, we seem to have some sort of pattern in terms of number of injuries, almost always coming somewhere in the high 30s every Tuesday. Week 6 was more of the same, with 37 injuries, including notable ones to receivers Sammy Watkins and Emmanuel Sanders, as well as Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota.
Mariota’s injury highlights the week, especially with the Titans accusing the Dolphins of dirty play. Other notable names on the report include Julius Thomas, Shane Ray and Mike Vick. Steelers offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum sustained a season-ending knee injury.
Here are the rest of the injuries we could find for Week 6, grouped by body part. (We miss anything? Shoot us an email.)
Lower body injuries continued to be the most frequent ailment, with knees, ankles and hamstrings sustaining the most number of injuries. Week 6 had only two reported concussions we could find. We’ll be back next week.
