Preseason Body Count Rising

It's difficult to keep track of the myriad NFL injuries which happen every preseason. Just this weekend has produced a boatload.
↵
↵* Jason Taylor, who played 130 consecutive games with Miami, went down in his first exhibition start as a Redskin. MRI results on his sprained knee came in this morning, and Taylor will be out up to two weeks ... which means opening night looks like a possible no-go.
↵
↵* Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora took a ride on a golf cart after his left knee buckled without contact for any Jets in Saturday night's battle of New York preseason supremacy. The Giants say there is no ligament damage. That hasn't stopped the Michael Strahan rumors from ramping up. Again.
↵
↵* Carson Palmer got jacked by the Saints defense, and left the game early with "a bloody nose and busted lip," as the Dayton Daily News puts it. Palmer isn't expected to miss games, but he did have to postpone his Glamour Shots sessions a few weeks. Dang non-refundable deposits!
↵
↵* The Raiders saw two potential starters -- wideout Drew Carter and fullback Oren O'Neal -- go down with season-ending injuries against Arizona.
↵
↵* On Friday, Texans receiver Harry Williams fractured a verterbra in his neck. He regained feeling in his legs on Saturday.
↵
↵It's the same thing every year. Outrage is useless at this point. It's never going to change.↵
