NFL Injury Report Week 9

Injury Report
US Presswire-US Presswire

As we all well know too much the NFL unfortunately is a very violent game and with that comes plenty of injuries across the entire league on a weekly basis. Sometimes the injuries can occur from the type of savage hits that the players endure and deliver or other times they can happen from the little things such as running the wrong way or simply landing awkwardly after jumping or getting tackled.

The point is that there are simply too many ways to become an injury statistic in the National Football League and even more unfortunately is the fact that this is news in a league that is the most popular amongst sports fans in our nation. In certain instances the injury can be a major one to a major player that could affect the way that team’s season winds up and in other situations it could be the 53rd man on the roster who just has a slight sprain which may not have much of an impact on a single game led alone an entire season. With all of that being said there were several injuries which occurred during the action in week eight of the 2012 season some were season ending and others will sideline certain players for maybe just a week or so.

Regardless to the severity or player who the injury occurs to all injuries are an unfortunate part of a sport which we love. Here are a few of the notable injuries that happened last week and how they will affect the players who suffered them.
