The excited was great this past weekend and Thursday night NFL games. There were some crazy endings, blowouts and a Seattle team that can’t seem to beat the rams. During Sunday’s games it felt like a good number of running backs went down with injury. Let’s talk about the NFL injury report.

Injuries

Vikings Adrian Peterson tore his meniscus. If he wants a partial repair he will be out 4 weeks. If he decides a full repair he will be out 4 months.

Chargers RB Danny Woodhead tore his ACL out for the season

Panthers Jonathan Stewart with a hamstring injury expected to miss a week or two.

Lions RB Ameer Abdullah left the game with a sprained foot. He did get xrays and they came back negative.

Browns QB Josh McCown has a shoulder injury, how much time he will miss unknown. They did name Cody Kessler as a starter

Broncos LB DeMarcus Ware out 4-5 weeks after breaking his forearm.

Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo left Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury. There have been different reports how long he will be out. So I will guess 2-6 weeks. Rookie Jacoby Brissett will be the starter for the next 2 weeks, until Brady comes back. Julian Edleman is number 2 QB.

Dolphins RB Arian Foster left Sunday’s game with a groin injury. Will miss week 3.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls left Sunday’s game with a leg injury.

Redskins T Kedric Golston placed on IR with a hamstring injury.
