Dalvin Cook and Chris Carson Likely Done For The Year After Week 4 Injuries
Week 4 was filled with a couple major injuries, with rookie running backs Dalvin Cook and Chris Carson likely being done for the year with ACL and ankle injuries. Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones injured his hip over the weekend as well, in addition to Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota leaving his game with a hamstring injury.
Tough break for the two rookies, they were killing it throughout the first couple games. All of these injuries are going to greatly impact their respected teams, as Minnesota has to resort to Latavius Murray (one of the most mediocre backs in the league IMO), Seattle having no stability at the running back position, Atlanta struggling so far this season after losing in the Super Bowl last year, and the Titans having no other real offensive weapon besides Mariota (maybe DeMarco Murray). While we know for sure Cook and Carson will be out for some time, it will be interesting to see how long Jones and Mariota will be out for.
