It’s only week four: NFL injuries so far

Week four just wrapped up in the NFL, and there has been a number of injuries that have accrued. One of the earliest injuries that happened occurred during the pre-season Zach Wilson from the New York Jets suffered a significant knee injury that prevented him from playing at the beginning of the season Luckily he returned during the week four game. 

Sequentially, another quarterback that sustained an injury in the AFC East division, was New England Patriots, Mac Jones. In week three vs the Baltimore Ravens, he sustained a high ankle sprain. He didn’t play in week four but may end up playing in week five. 

San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Tray Lance, was a second string for the 49ers, and this year he got the chance to be the starter however, unfortunately, in week two he suffered a season-ending injury. 

A defensive player that endured an injury was defensive end Joey Bosa on the Los Angeles Chargers. During the week three game vs the Jacksonville Jaguars, he went out of the game because of a groin injury. He is expected to be out of commission for approximately 8-10 weeks. 

Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams was supposed to have a promising season this year and was a popular draft pick in several fantasy leagues. Unfortunately, his destiny didn’t match his fate, and during the week four game he tore his ACL and LCL, putting him out for the rest of the season, and potentially he’ll miss the beginning of next season too.

The New York Giants have been trying to decide on their quarterback position since the pre-season. The starting quarterback was going to be Tyrod Taylor but he got injured in pre-season. 

The starter for weeks one, two, three, and four was Daniel Jones but during the week four game, he injured his ankle. The Giants ended up putting in Tyrod Taylor and shortly after he tried to rush for a first down and received a blow to the head, suffering a concussion and he was taken off the field. 

The Giants ended up putting their star running back, Saquon Barkley, in as quarterback for a couple of plays to give Daniel Jones a rest.
