Week Two Season-Ending Injuries

Dolphins G Josh Sitton (Shoulder)

The Dolphins have enjoyed a 2-0 start, but they have lost one of their starting offensive lineman that was supposed to be a key part of their offense this season. Now Sitton was lost before the teams week two game so they have already played a game without him, but losing Sitton for the year this early in the season is less than ideal to say the least.

Giants C Jon Halapio (Lower leg and ankle fractures)

The Giants already struggle along the offensive line and now losing their guy who was in the middle of the line making the calls should only make that situation worse for the Giants. They’re now looking at putting rookie Evan Brown in to fill the shoes of Halapio. Asking a rookie to play center and deal with all that it entails is a tough spot, but I’m not sure the Giants’ offensive line situation could really get worse.

Jaguars T Cam Robinson (ACL)

This is a tough blow for Jacksonville. The offensive line is the strength of the offense and now they lose a starting tackle for the season. The good thing for the Jaguars is that they are still going to be good up front and with that defense the offense shouldn’t have too much pressure on it to score this season. Even with that said, this is a tough blow.

Falcons G Andy Levitre (Triceps)

This is a brutal loss for Atlanta. Levitre is one of the top interior lineman in the whole league and since they have acquired he and Alex Mack, the offense has taken it to the next level. For a team that already has trouble scoring in the redzone, losing a stud interior lineman is rough and now it’ll probably be on Ben Garland to step up and try and fill his shoes to some extent. That’s a lot to ask from Garland though and ultimately I’m expecting the Falcons offense to take even more of a step back following this loss.

Redskins RB Rob Kelley (Toe)

This isn’t too much of a loss. Kelley has fallen out of favor in Washington with Adrian Peterson showing he still has something left in the tank, Chris Thompson stepping up and Samaje Perine being in the backfield. Kelley only had four carries in the team’s first two games and with this injury and the return of Derrius Guice next season, I’m expecing Rob Kelley to be done in Washington after this season.
