Another week of NFL football and more injuries have taken over the league. Several prominent players have left their respective games with injuries and will be monitored throughout the week. Below is a list of the big-name players who left the Week 2 slate of games.
Waddle is in the concussion protocol after taking a hit to the head toward the end of the Dolphins’ win over the Patriots on Sunday night. He will have to be cleared by an independent neurologist before taking part in practice or a game. The Dolphins host the Broncos in Week 3.
Cooper suffered a groin injury during practice last week and highly questionable for Monday night’s game against the Ravens. He was apparently not feeling 100% Monday morning, but will test the injury in a pregame workout before a determination is made regarding whether he will play.
Barkley was injured on the Giants’ game-winning drive against the Cardinals. He appeared to get his ankle rolled up and reportedly has a sprain. He will undergo more tests on Monday but appears to have avoided a major sprain, according to multiple reports. New York plays on Thursday night, so it might be tough for him to suit up against the 49ers.
Burrow aggravated the calf strain that kept him out for almost the entirety of training camp. He said that he’s “going to take it day by day” and see how it feels. But there doesn’t seem to be much concern from the Bengals’ camp that he’ll miss much, if any, time.

Montgomery left Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks with what the team called a thigh injury after being carted to the locker room. He reportedly could miss a couple weeks. He finished with 16 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown.
