Which Week 7 NFL Injury Will Cause the Biggest Shakeup?

BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistOctober 21, 2013

A rash of injuries has befallen the NFL, and no, it's not just your standard docket of bangs and bruises. Rather, season-changing and potentially career-changing ailments highlighted Week 7.

At the quarterback position, Nick Foles, Jay Cutler and Sam Bradford were all bounced mid-game, and for Bradford in particular, his season is lost to an ACL tear.

Skill position players Reggie Wayne (one of the NFL's ironmen) and Doug Martin (a two-year starter at running back) are also likely lost for the 2013 campaign with ACL and labrum tears, respectively.

Defensive players didn't fare much better. The Houston Texans' Brian Cushing, who missed most of 2012 with a devastating knee injury, will also miss the rest of 2013 after hurting his knee against the Chiefs. Meanwhile, the Bears' leader on defense, Lance Briggs, will be shelved for 4-6 weeks with a shoulder ailment.

So, which player's injury will affect his team the most? The guys at the Bleacher Bar are here to debate.
