Football is a very competitive and physical sport, and there is always a chance that a player will get injured while playing on the field; or even off the field as some have occured. This is common knowledge in the NFL, but what gets everyone angry is that their favorite teams lose good players during the preseason, where the games don’t really matter.

During Week 2 of the preseason there have been several injuries that could greatly affect how a team performs once the regular season starts. For instance, the Pittsburgh Steelers just lost their great Center, Maurkice Pouncey with a broken ankle. He may not be the most important player on the field, but his presence was crucial to the offense.

Pouncey is not the only that suffered this week, take a look at some other injuries that happened during the weekend games:

Jordy Nelson Packers Possible torn ACL
T.J. Lang Packers Possible concussion
Scott Tolzien Packers Possible concussion
Maurkice Pouncey Steelers Broken Left Ankle
Stephon Tuitt Steelers Left ankle injury
Robert Griffin III Washington Possible concussion and shoulder injury
Johnny Manziel Browns Possible elbow injury
Brandon Weeden Cowboys Concussion
Jon Beason Giants Sprained knee
Bennett Jackson Giants Torn ACL
Marquess Wilson Bears Hamstring Injury
Ben Ijalana Jets Sprained MCL
Roddy White Falcons Minor right elbow surgery
Vance McDonald 49ers Ankle injury

Let’s hope that no other players get seriously injured during the remaining two weeks of the preseason, as it would be a shame for them to miss out on football games that actually mattered. Fantasy sports fans shouldn’t be the only ones upset about these injuries, and hopefully the NFL will lower the amount of preseason games in the future.
