5 Injuries Sure to Affect the Divisional Round of the Playoffs

A number of teams will be feeling the bite of the injury bug during this week's NFL Divisional Playoffs.

New injuries from last week's Wild Card Round as well as lingering injuries from a long, brutal NFL season can rear their ugly heads at the most inopportune times imaginable.

No one knows that better than Robert Griffin III.

Last week, I ranked RGIII's knee injury as the most concerning of all injuries heading into the playoffs.  When I saw him go down, I stared at my TV in disbelief and immediately felt awful about my prediction being correct.

The collective gasp of the entire nation, not just Washington Redskins fans, could be almost felt Sunday night, and the silence in the stadium was sickening.  The thoughts and best wishes of the entire football community are with RGIII as he begins his road to recovery.

However, RGIII isn't the only one hurting.

The following players' injuries are sure to be felt by the remaining playoff squads this weekend, ranked in increasing order of how negatively the injury in question will impact a team.
