NFL injuries
An awful lot of players sustained NFL injuries on opening weekend (Tim Fuller/USA TODAY Sports)

There seemed to be an unusually high amount of big name injuries in week one of the NFL regular season. Here is the latest update on NFL injuries.

David Johnson – RB – Arizona Cardinals

David Johnson caught a 24-yard pass down the far sideline but injured his wrist on the play. Here is the play.

Chris Mortensen first reported that David Johnson’s wrist injury will keep him sidelined for “a few weeks”. Johnson has a scheduled MRI on his wrist today.

Allen Robinson – WR – Jacksonville Jaguars

On the third play from scrimmage, Allen Robinson hauled in a 17-yard pass for a third down conversion. After the play, Robinson stayed on the ground unable to move. Jacksonville’s medical staff eventually helped him off the field and into the locker room. Later, Ian Rapoport confirms what most already believed.

Danny Woodhead  – RB – Baltimore Ravens

Last season, Woodhead missed the entire year due to an ACL tear. He also missed the last two preseason games due to a hamstring injury and it appears to have been aggravated again.

The Baltimore Ravens have not commented on Danny Woodhead’s injury timetable.

Ronald Darby – CB – Philadelphia Eagles

Right before the season kicked-off, the Philadelphia Eagles pulled some strings trading for Ronald Darby. The thought being the Eagles needing more depth at the cornerback position. Well, it seems like they are back to square one as Ronald Darby appears to have dislocated his ankle. Trust me – I’ll spare you the video.

Stephon Tuitt – DE – Pittsburgh Steelers

On Saturday, the Pittsburgh Steelers inked Stephon Tuitt to a 5 year/$61 million extension. Fast forward to Sunday, and according to the Steelers, Tuitt suffered a torn biceps. He is scheduled for an MRI today that will reveal more.

Kevin White – WR – Chicago Bears

Kevin White cannot catch a break. On Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, Kevin White broke his collarbone and will need season ending surgery.  Since being drafted in the first round in 2015, White has only played in five NFL games. The Bears have a decision to make on his fifth-year option next offseason.

Reuben Foster – ILB – San Francisco 49ers

On Reuben Foster’s attempt to tackle Christian McCaffrey, his leg seemed to stick and he immediately grabbed at his right ankle. Foster was carted off to roaring chants of his name. X-Rays of Foster’s ankle returned negative, but further tests will be conducted.

Hopefully, we see Reuben Foster back on the field very, very soon.
