NFL Injury Report: Ty Warren Heads List Of The AFC West Casualties

The AFC West was impacted by injury on the opening weekend, as Jon Condo's head injury highlighted a key weakness for the Raiders. After the long snapper left the contest, the Raiders would struggle in the punting game with absolutely terrible results.

The Broncos suffered the biggest injury of the week in the AFC West. They have likely lost Ty Warren for the season, as the lineman suffered a torn triceps during the first half of the opener. Warren has also missed the previous two seasons with injury. Warren joins Jeremy Beal and Tyler Grisham on the injured reserve. Chris Kuper is also suffering from a forearm injury.

The Chiefs had a few key defenders miss their Week 1 contest. Brandon Flowers was out with a heel injury, Kendrick Lewis had a right shoulder problem, and Anthony Toribo was suffering from a right ankle problem. The status of those three is still unclear for the Week 2 contest in Buffalo.

The Raiders suffered a few injuries in their opener, and they went into the contest pretty banged up already. They had seven players on the injured reserve, and both Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore missed the game with injury. Long snapper Jon Condo left the game with a head injury in the first half, and corner Ron Bartell left the game with a shoulder injury. Neither returned to the game, and both are set to be further evaluated today. Aaron Curry isn't likely to be activated from the PUP for several more weeks either.

The Chargers came out of last night's contest in better shape than the Raiders. Antonio Gates suffered a rib injury, but he was healthy enough to return to the game in the second half. We'll likely have updates on Jared Gaither, Ryan Mathews, and Antonio Garay later in the week. All three missed the opener due to injury.

NFL Injury Report: AFC North Week 1 Injuries

Week 1 is in the books, so we'll begin to look forward to Week 2. One of the things to watch is always the injury report, here's a look around the division at who got dinged up in Week 1.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers had a few minor injuries, and depth on the offensive line is a bit of a concern now that Trai Essex has signed with the Colts. Marcus Gilbert and Ramon Foster both left the game at points with minor injuries, but other than that, the Steelers came out of this one without any new injuries.

The Steelers did have a few injuries coming into the game, with David DeCastro, Stevenson Sylvester, James Harrison, and Rashard Mendenhall all missing the first game due to injury. Ryan Clark also missed the contest after he was found to be carrying the sickle cell trait.

Cleveland Browns

The Browns made it out of Week 1 without much in the way of injury, but the team did note that Sheldon Brown had suffered a stinger. Stingers are not usually too serious, but at this point it's unclear if he's in any jeopardy of missing out on Week 2.

Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore had a key player leave the game Monday night, as Ed Reed had to leave with a strained hamstring. He didn't return, but also didn't seem too concerned about it after the game. Corey Graham and Pernell McPhee also suffered minor injuries during the game, but neither looks set to miss any time.

Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals escaped Monday's game without much to report in the way of injury. Both George Iloka and Domata Peko came out for a few plays, but both returned to the game. They did have both Carlos Dunlop and Bernard Scott miss the game with injury.
