The NFL has taken hit after hit with injuries this season, with the latest being Deshaun Watson suffering a torn ACL in practice Thursday:
It is looking more and more likely that this NFL season will be a disappointment for most fans watching a game, because the star players they want to see won’t be on the field. Watson is just the latest in a long line of star player injuries, including OBJ, Aaron Rodgers, JJ Watt, Delvin Cook, Andrew Luck, Julian Edelman, Eric Berry and David Johnson.
With all of these stars getting hurt the NFL is just simply not a great product to watch at this point in the season, and the bigger issue is there isn’t really anything the league can do to change that. While there is little excitement around the NFL this year, due to the massive injuries, as a football fan I can hope that all of these guys are healthy for next season, so we can truly see who the best team is.
