Beckham missed the majority of the 2017 season with the New York Giants after breaking his ankle. He also played through a significant injury for the majority of 2019 and has been banged up at other points, so he knows how frustrating it can be.
Giants star running back Saquon Barkley and San Francisco 49ers pass-rusher Nick Bosa are believed to have suffered torn ACLs, which will keep them out for the rest of the year. The list below shows how many players went down, and it does not include Christian McCaffrey. The Carolina Panthers will have an MRI on Monday to determined the severity of his ankle injury.

Many are wondering if the lack of preseason games has led to more significant injuries early on. Of course, plenty of people argue that the preseason games themselves lead to unnecessary injuries. The 49ers had another theory about what may have caused their players to get hurt.
