During Week 2 of the NFL season, the injury bug did plenty of biting.
Aaron Hernandez -- One of the New England Patriots' vaunted tight ends walked out of Gilette Stadium on crutches and in a walking boot after the team's shocking loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
Blaine Gabbert -- The Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback injured his left hamstring during a loss to the Houston Texans. He was injured in the first half, returned in the third quarter but left the game.
Jeremy Maclin -- After making a key block during the Philadelphia Eagles win over the Baltimore Ravens, Maclin left the game with a hip pointer. The wide receiver went into the game listed as questionable because of hip pain, and the injury was in the same area.
Steven Jackson -- After he drew an unsportsmanlike penalty for spiking a ball out of anger during the St. Louis Rams win, Jackson sat out the final three quarters of the game. The running back was not being held out for disciplinary reasons, but because of a groin pull.
David Diehl, Ahmad Bradshaw and Domenik Hixon -- Though the New York Giants came up with a thrilling win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they did lose three players. Wide receiver Hixon suffered a concussion, tackle Diehl had a knee injury, and running back Bradshaw had X-rays on his neck at halftime.
