    Justin Harrell also tore his ACL, making it three season ending injuries in one game.

      I haz a supermega sad... :(

      My stomach dropped as soon as I saw the replay of it, and considering Weaver is my favorite Eagle, and one who I've met and talked to, this really, really ******* sucks majorly. I just hope he can come back.

        The GB/PHI game was full of injuries. Harrell and Weaver tore up their knees, Kolb has a concussion, Bradley possibly has a concussion, and Ryan Grant injured his ankle. Am I missing anything?

        Edit: Jamaal Jackson- torn bicep.

          Plus four more serious injuries with two bad concussions, a hand cast for the rest of the year, and an undetermined bad ankle injury. Really rough game.

          Weaver's injury definitely stands out, though, such a horrific thing. It is possible to come back from extreme injuries, ie.. McGahee, but rare. (Although McGahee didn't actually suffer the extent of the injury they're currently suggesting for Weaver. Nerve damage basically makes it impossible.)

            Like I mentioned above, Jamaal Jackson tore his bicep. Just a terrible game as far as injuries go.

            Bradley's concussion was ugly, he got up and started walking and his knees just buckled and he fell to the ground. I was shocked when they put him back in a couple plays later and he was ruled to have a concussion at halftime and then was held out of the second half. That was way too risky. I think they did the same thing with Kolb now that I mention it.

              I think Kolb never came back in, but I was real surprised when Bradley was back in, and caught a tackle on the first play back. He recorded at least 2 tackles in 4 or 5 plays after his concussion IIRC.

                Jenkins broke multiple bones in his hand and is wearing a cast for the year. :-/

                But hey! The NFL can make some more money if it needlessly plays two more of these for each team every year, so let's do that!

                  That just looks terrible on the medical staff. You can't let a guy back in the game with symptoms of a concussion. I don't care if he passed whatever tests they gave him, something serious could have happened, way more serious than what happened to Weaver.

                    I can't move. My mind is in pain for him.

                      I agree, they never should have let him back in, but I think Bradley wanted to come back in despite what they were telling him. I give respect to him for even wanting to come back in after his concussion, when it was obvious he wasn't right in the head. I was worried about the same thing, if he would've taken another big hit to his head, their could have been all types of different brain damage. The sad thing is, he played better after being concussed than Gaither did the rest of the game.

                        Its the worst feeling I've ever had looking at an injury happen (physically and emotionally), even worse than Theisman's leg breaking, but its probably because I am closer as a fan to Weaver than Theisman, and I watched it as it happened, and that's not to take away from the gruesomeness of Weaver's injury either.

                          Yeah, but it's not his call to get back in the game. That medical and/or coaching staff just took a gamble with his life to try and win a football game. This wasn't someone who might worsen a fracture or sprained ankle, this was someone that with the information they had could have suffered permanent brain damage with another hit. Considering how hard the NFL has been coming down on concussions I can't believe the Eagles got away with that.

                          Someone needs to lose their job for that call, imo.

                            I completely agree, and for the reasons you and GE77 pointed out. The last thing I want to see is someone have their life changed or ended playing football.

                              Anybody remember Napoleon McCallum's injury? That was was by far, the nastiest leg injury I have ever seen

                              Weaver's was similar in how his leg was planted, then completely bent inwards. Just brutal
