Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen suffered broken foot in their week two win over the Bills.

This article outlines the most important players from the National Football League who got injured in the second week.

  1. Greg Olsen, Tight End for the Carolina Panthers

Olsen suffered an injury to his right foot in the game’s first half, and limped off to the locker room without a shoe on that foot. He was initially declared likely to return, but was then declared out as the second half of the game began. He was next spotted on crutches, with his right foot clad in a walking boot. After the game had finished Olsen let reporters know that his foot was broken, and he will not be able to play for some time.

  1. Marshal Yanda, Offensive Guard for the Baltimore Ravens

Yanda sustained an injury to his left ankle, and it was questionable whether or not he would be able to return. He was then declared out, and, when the game wrapped up, John Harbaugh, head coach for the Ravens, let it be known that Yanda has fractured his ankle and will not be able to play for the rest of the season.

  1. Garett Bolles, Offensive Tackle for the Denver Broncos

The Broncos’ starting left tackle suffered an injury to his left leg, and had to be taken off of the field in a cart in the third quarter of the game on Sunday. Bolles, the first-round pick for the Denver Broncos in the April draft, hurt his leg on a five-yard run by Jamaal Charles, after his leg was pinned to the ground. There were fears that Bolles had broken his ankle, and he is set to undergo further tests. He has been seen wearing a walking boot in the meantime.

  1. Mike Daniels, Defensive Lineman for the Green Bay Packers

Mike Daniels, who has arguably been the best defensive player for the Green Bay Packers so far this season, injured his hamstring on the opening drive, and got ruled out of play during the second quarter.

  1. Jordy Nelson, Wide Receiver for the Green Bay Packers

After suffering an injury to his quad in the first quarter, it was questionable whether or not Nelson would return and if he did, if his performance would be up to scratch. It has been noted that the injury is on the same leg on which Nelson underwent ACL injury, and though there has been no official update, Nelson was unable to return to the game.

  1. Vic Beasley Junior, Defensive End for the Atlanta Falcons

Beasley took an injury to his hamstring in the third quarter and it was declared questionable whether or not he would return. Although he has not been officially downgraded, Beasley did not return to the game.

  1. Ryan Schraeder, Offensive Tackle for the Atlanta Falcons

Schraeder injured his head on Devonta Freeman’s touchdown run during the first quarter, and got downgraded later to out with a concussion.
