Interactive graphic: NFL Week 9 injuries by body part
Big-name quarterbacks headlined the Week 9 injury list.
Steelers signal-caller Ben Roethlisberger will miss a few weeks—again—with a mid-foot sprain. Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was the recipient of a scary hit to the head, but could be ready to go by Week 10.
Elsewhere, the Jets sustained numerous injuries as a team, including a quad ailment for kicker Nick Folk. DeMarcus Ware re-injured his back, and Giants defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins is out for the year with a torn pectoral muscle.
Here are the all of the injuries we could find for Week 9, grouped by body part. (We miss anything? Shoot us an email.)
There were 37 injuries we counted in Week 9. The number of concussions was notable, with eight players going through the protocol. The two knee injuries were both significant, as Colts defensive end Henry Anderson and Patriots running back Dion Lewis will miss the rest of the year with torn ACLs. The number of upper body injuries was similar to the number of lower body ones, a 19–18 edge for the upper half.
We’ll be back with more next week.
