9 Biggest NFL Players Already Out for the Season


Does it seem like there have been an unusually high number of season-ending injuries during the NFL preseason this year? Well, there’s a reason for that. According to one study, serious preseason injuries have been rising steadily for a decade. In 2004 there were 50 “serious” preseason injuries, while in 2012 there were 80. That’s a pretty alarming rise.

The final numbers for 2014 remain to be seen, of course, but there have already been a number of high-profile season-ending injuries, the most recent of which was revealed yesterday, when the St. Louis Rams announced that they would be without their starting quarterback, Sam Bradford, for the second season in a row.

Where does Bradford’s injury rank among the rest of the season-ending injuries we’ve seen so far? That is the subject of today’s list. Take a look to read our take.
