Update (4:00 PM Eastern) – CBS has confirmed Saquon Barkley’s injury as an ACL tear. The team says he will be further evaluated tomorrow in New York, but this is very, very bad for the Giants.


We’re in the opening act of Sunday’s slate of games and some of football’s biggest stars are getting hurt. Is the NFL’s lack of a preseason to blame? Who knows. But it’s ugly out there.


Giants running back Saquon Barkley was sent to the locker room after injuring his right knee on this play.

It’s not good news for the Giants whose offense basically runs through Barkley, and who have also lost wide receiver Sterling Shepard to injury this afternoon.

Last year’s defensive rookie of the year, Nick Bosa, was carted off the field with knee injury — so was Indianapolis wide receiver Parris Campbell.


On the other side of the San Francisco pass rush, DE Solomon Thomas went down with a knee injury as well.

Denver’s second-year quarterback Drew Lock will not return to the game after suffering from a shoulder injury.


Another Bronco, rookie wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, was hit hard after a catch. The rookie from Alabama sat on the sidelines for a few series, he is probable to return.

Bears running back David Motgomery went into the locker room after landing on his head. He was questionable, but eventually returned to play in the second half.


Minnesota’s Pro Bowl linebacker, Anthony Barr is doubtful after suffering a shoulder injury.

Rams RB Cam Akers was taken out with a rib injury.

Jets WR Breshad Perriman is questionable after an ankle injury.

AndAtlanta DE Takk McKinley may not return after a groin injury.

There will always be injuries in football, sure. But there are a surprising amount of names going down in the one o’clock window.




We will keep adding to this tracker as the day goes on.
