    Two main stories have dominated the first week of the NFL season: remembering the 9/11 tragedies and keeping superstars on the field.

    So far this week it seems like the lockout might have had an unintended effect. Maybe these guys weren't so ready to get on the field after all.

    We'll run down the list of studs who might be missing time in the near future.

    Starting off with the Rams all world back, Steven Jackson.

    Let's run down the M*A*S*H* unit known as NFL Week 1.
