Super Bowl XLV Quickly Becoming Wasteland Of Injuries For Packers, Steelers

Here is a brief recap of all of the injuries in the first half of Super Bowl XLV:

Bryant McFadden left the game early with a shoulder injury. He was replaced with William Gay, who allowed a touchdown to Jordy Nelson. McFadden has since returned to the sideline.

Flozell Adams went down hard on Nick Collins' interception return for a touchdown.

Ben Roethlisberger got up slowly after a hard hit and was limping, but ran for a first down on the next play and never left the game.

Donald Driver left the game after getting his legs caught under him while being tackled. He limped to the sideline, then to the locker room.

Sam Shields left the game and went to the locker room after going down hard making a tackle.

Charles Woodson left the game and went to the locker room with an apparent shoulder injury after breaking up a pass.

Nick Collins went to the locker room early after the Steelers' touchdown drive at the end of the second quarter. It is unclear whether he was injured.

Nice argument for an 18-game NFL season, huh?
