A breakdown of every Week 1 injury in the NFL—by body part.
Week 1 of the NFL season was filled with all the ridiculous situations we love about football—hilarious clock mismanagement, this time by the Giants, every face made by Jim Tomsula, the Dolphins looking like actual dolphins while trying to recover a fumble.
Of course, Week 1 was also filled with numerous injuries. Terrell Suggs is done for the year. Dez Bryant has a broken foot. Here, we’ve compiled a list of every reported injury we could find, and separated it by body part. How many head injuries were there this weekend? Will this be completely random, or will some kind of pattern of injuries emerge as the season continues?
Here’s what we have for Week 1:
Knees and heads were especially hurt during a brutal Week 1, with eight and nine reported injuries respectively. Ankle injuries weren't far behind, with seven such injuries in the opening weekend. We'll keep track of the injuries every week and see if we find anything interesting.
