I never root for injuries, but I do like to stay busy. This week's report seems light, though, because it is. If I have nothing to do but talk about minor injuries or even just fantasy football this season, I'll be okay with that.
The bulk of injuries will happen by the end of Week 2, and while the "rust" we saw from Robert Griffin and Ahmad Bradshaw might indicate that the preseason is necessary, it's nice to think we've seen some shift down.
We have very few major injuries, with Maurkice Pouncey out with a massive knee injury being the most notable one. The rest won't miss much time, but it's important to stay in the know for fantasy and fandom purposes.
One thing I did note is that at this point in the season, when the heat is still in effect and conditioning can be a bit hit or miss, we didn't see much in the way of cramping. Here and there, sure, but it seems medical staffs hit the right balance. I'll be curious to see if conditioning and sports science give any advantage to the teams using it, especially the Eagles, as they play a rushed tempo on offense.
Let's dig through the injuries coming out of Week 1 as we prep for Week 2. Remember, I'll be back with updates on Thursday, and then comes the liveblog on Sunday along with #FantasyLive on Sunday morning. If you miss any of them, your opponents will surely be reading.
