Who can guard like Quenton Nelson
Since becoming a Colts player, the three-time Pro Bowler, and three times, First-Team All-Pro has shown his immense talent. However, Quenton Nelson was carted off the field during Sunday’s game versus Tennessee Titans with his right shoe missing. He was later ruled out against Tennessee. Nelson is believed to have suffered a high-ankle sprain, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. X-rays were negative, but the guard will undergo more tests. The same injury that plagued Jerry Jeudy, who is believed to be out for up to 6 weeks.
Serious injury to Patriots Running Back James White
New England Patriots RB James White suffered a severe hip injury during the second quarter against the Saints. He suffered a hip subluxation similar to what happened to Ryan Fitzpatrick in week 1. “That definitely sucked to see him go down,” quarterback Mac Jones said. “We’re all behind him 100 percent, and he’s a team leader, and he’s a great team leader, and he’s a great Patriot. We all want to be, if we can, like James. He’s a big role model for me. I hope he’s okay, and thoughts and prayers to him and his family.” A further medical assessment is needed before a potential return for RB James White can be estimated.
Giants suffer under injuries during the loss to Atlanta Falcons.
A total of three players got injured in the first quarter against Atlanta Falcons. First, it was Blake Martinez, the former Packer who suffered a knee injury. Then, later in the quarter, while driving downfield, New York Giants suffered injuries to their best wide receiver in Sterling Shepard with a hamstring injury. To top it all off, Darius Slayton suffered the same injury as Sterling Shepard. Both receivers were ruled out and didn’t come back.
Titans lose one of two top wide receivers.
Titans WR A.J. Brown suffered a hamstring strain early against the Colts. I believe he suffered either a Grade 1 or Grade 2 strain. Imaging will clarify the severity of the strain, which will dictate the amount of time he will miss. RTP for a Grade 1 strain is one to three weeks, and a Grade 2 is four to eight weeks. The Titans will be cautious with their superstar due to the high reinjury rate of 20-25%. In the meantime, Julio Jones and Derrick Henry be the players to put your attention on.
Aint plain sailing in Carolina with injury to their top running back
Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey suffered a hamstring injury in the second quarter of Thursday’s game against the Texans. He was ruled out immediately, which is not a good sign. I believe he is suffering the serious end of Grade 1 or possibly a Grade 2 strain. I expect McCaffery to be out three to four weeks. This is unfortunate as Carolina has started 3-0 for the first time since 2015.
