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.

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. Read the rest of this entry →

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month was just the fifth player in Major League Baseball history to have 11 straight seasons with 20 or more home runs, yet could not sustain that greatness long enough to earn a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

      In some sense, the legend of Rocco “Rocky” Colavito Jr. began long before he ever started pounding home runs at the major league level.

      Born and raised as a New York Yankees fan in The Bronx, Colavito was playing semipro baseball before he was a teenager and dropped out of high school at 16 after his sophomore year to pursue a professional career. The major league rule at the time said a player could not sign with a pro team until his high school class graduated, but after sitting out for one year, Colavito was allowed to sign at age 17.
