Injuries in the Opener

Posted in Sunday, September 12, 2010

A myriad of injuries happened in Sunday's season opening game with Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers where Eagles loss 27-20 to Green Bay.

Injured Eagles were quarterback Kevin Kolb, linebacker Stewart Bradley, center Jamaal Jackson and running back Leonard Weaver. Each of the injuries could be potentially devastating for the Eagles as all are main contributors to the team. Each suffered injuries that could last well into the season.

Kolb and Bradley suffered concussions while Jackson has a torn biceps muscle. Weaver's knee injury was the most gruesome as it is possible that he may have torn the ACL on the knee.

On the other hand, Green Bay's running back Ryan Grant limped off in the first half with an ankle injury and sat out the rest of the game.
