Week 2 of the 2020 regular season is underway and with this second NFL Sunday comes a slew of injuries across the league. A number of the game’s biggest stars on both sides of the ball have already departed to the locker room due to injury and some are facing the possibility of missing much more than just this game. 

In this space, we’ll be giving you a quick rundown of each major injury that has already come down across the early slate of games and be providing updates once more information is available. 

  • The 49ers continued to be haunted by injuries to start the season. They saw a number of stars banged up in their matchup with the Jets, including pass-rushers Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas. They were both carted off the field mere moments from one another. Bosa was grabbing his left knee as he was carted off the field, as was Thomas. After the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan noted that Bosa likely tore his ACL. As for Thomas, ESPN reports that further testing on Monday is needed but there is concern that it’s serious. Meanwhile Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) did not play in the second half and Nick Mullens was in under center. That will likely remain the case as Garoppolo deals with a high ankle sprain, per Shanahan. Running back Raheem Mostert (knee) also left the game.
