Injuries are killing me!!!!

Like me, many of you are probably saying the same thing to yourself. What a week for injuries across the board.

I had two big killers. I traded Miami receiver Brandon Marshall for San Diego receiver Malcolm Floyd last week (for reasons I won't get into) and Floyd ends up with a strained hamstring and is out a week or two. My tight end of all tight ends, Indianapolis' Dallas Clark, is out indefintely after sustaining a hand/wrist injury. He's in a cast now and according to the Colts' web site there is no timetable for his return. Some reports claim he will be out for the season.
As you likely know by now there were nearly 10 head related injuries in Week 6 with several of those concussion related.
One of the biggest lossses due to a concussion is DeSean Jackson (Philadelphia receiver). He is out at least a week and most likely 2-3 weeks minimum.
Other top injured players are Antonio Gates (San Diego tight end, toe injury), David Garrard (Jacksonville quarterback, concussion), Mohamed Massaquoi (Cleveland receiver, head injury),
Todd Heap (Baltimore tight end, neck stinger), Joshua Cribbs (Cleveland receiver, head injury).

Tennessee quarterback Vince Young suffered a sprained knee injury and Denver receiver Eddie Royal has a hamstring injury.

Monitor all these injuries the rest of the week.
