NFL injury report 2013: NFC West enjoys 3 wins and no injuries in Week 1
The NFC West proved its strength in Week 1. The San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks both won tough matchups, and the Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams played each other tight with the Rams ultimately winning on a Greg Zuerlein field goal. Just as positive, all four teams managed to avoid any serious injuries. Here's the rundown:
The Cardinals did not suffer any significant injuries during their loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, and appear to be relatively healthy heading into Week 2. Rob Housler was unsurprisingly ruled inactive after missing practice last week with an ankle injury, and his status for Week 2 is still questionable at best. Calais Campbell was able to play Sunday despite being listed on the injury report as questionable with a quadriceps injury.
San Francisco 49ers
Not only did the 49ers score a big win, but they didn't suffer any losses on the injury front. Anquan Boldin gave fans a scare when he left the game in the second half with an apparent knee injury, but he eventually returned to continue his "grown man" performance.
The Seahawks also did not suffer any serious in-game injuries. The next week will be spent monitoring the status of several key defenders. Cliff Avril reportedly has a "great chance" of returning next week against the 49ers from foot and hamstring injuries. Chris Clemons seems less likely to return off a torn ACL, though he is eligible to play. There is no word yet on cornerback Brandon Browner, who was placed on the inactive list just before game time with a hamstring injury.
St. Louis Rams
Continuing with the theme of the weekend for the division, the Rams did not appear to suffer any major injuries during their game. Right tackle Roger Saffold sat out for a short period in the second quarter with a knee injury, but eventually returned to finish out the game.
Going into Week 2, the team will keep closest watch on starting strong safety Darian Stewart, who was inactive Sunday with a hamstring injury that has been nagging him since training camp.
