From Season-Altering To Bizarre, Injuries Hit NFL Yet Again
ARLINGTON, Texas -- AP -- From the season-altering to the bizarre, injuries are playing their traditionally significant role in the NFL. Dak Prescott's Dallas Cowboys are on the verge of a lost year when they hoped to contend after a broken ankle ended the quarterback's season.
The NFC East rival New York Giants lost running back Saquon Barkley to a torn ACL. Tyrod Taylor lost his starting QB job with the LA Chargers after a team doctor accidentally punctured a lung during an injection. Las Vegas Raiders right tackle Trent Brown ended up in a hospital, reportedly because an IV pushed air into his bloodstream.
