We discussed after the first few days of training camp how the injury bug had hit some star players and how GM’s were already scrambling lookin for replacements and how to salvage their best laid plans. Well, it’s heading into week three and with only one pre-season game played, here are a list of major injuries.
Seattle Seahawks: Percy Harvin…Harvin was supposed to be the big play guy to take the Seahawks to the next level coupled with QB Russell Wilson. Percy is out for the season.
The Baltimore Ravens has lost TE Dennis Pitta as previously discussed. He is also out for the season along with Center Ryan Jensen.
The Carolina Panthers will be wothout WR Lamont Bryant for the season and LB Jon Beason is looking towards a week one return from knee surgery.
