The first week of Week 1 is upon us, and the NFL is starting to feel a little different.
The league is expected to release its Week 1 schedule on Monday, and with that, we’ve compiled all of the weekly injury news, injuries and breakdowns from Week 1.
As a reminder, we’ll start with the injury rankings for the first three weeks of the season.
We’ll be breaking down how each team is performing, and then, we will be looking at each team’s overall injury situation.
Here are the top storylines and injuries for Week 1:The Rams are in the midst of a very interesting Week 1 in the NFL.
With the Rams playing in front of their home fans in a preseason game, the team is still without a starting quarterback, but the team has an interesting mix of starting talent.
The Rams have six starters on the 53-man roster.
The Rams starters:Todd Gurley , RB, St. Louis RamsTodd Gurle has started five games for the Rams this season, but they are currently the lowest scoring team in the league in rushing attempts.
Gurley was held to two rushing touchdowns last week, but he should have no problem running for at least 100 yards and a touchdown in this one.
The Colts have an interesting injury situation in Indy.
Starting running back Andre Williams has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury.
He returned to practice on Monday and is expected back against the Bengals on Tuesday.
If he plays, the Colts could have a dangerous backfield.
The Bills are expected to lose defensive end Stephon Gilmore to a shoulder injury, as the Bills have been struggling against the run all year.
The Bills have allowed the fifth-most rushing yards per game (5.7) in the second half of games this season.
Buffalo has been in a lot of trouble on the ground.
The team has been allowing the third-most runs of all teams in the first half of the year.
It has also been allowing more than 100 yards rushing in four games.
The Panthers are expected in the mix for the second-worst rushing offense in the AFC South, but that is about where they stand.
The Panthers have allowed 4.5 yards per carry, which ranks 19th in the conference.
The Ravens are in desperate need of some help at the quarterback position, but it seems like Baltimore has gotten away from the running game.
The Ravens have allowed at least five yards per rush in six of their past seven games.
They have been shut out twice this season in games in which they ran for over 100 yards.
If the Ravens can continue to put up big numbers on offense, they could be in line for a big Week 1 against the Titans.
The Titans have allowed a whopping 2.4 yards per rushing attempt this season and are currently on pace for their worst record since 2005.
The Saints have struggled to get going on defense.
New Orleans is tied for the fourth-most sacks (10) in football and is allowing the fifth most rushing yards (1,848).
The Saints have also allowed just one quarterback hit this season with a sack or a forced fumble.
The Jaguars have had a lot to work with in Week 1, but quarterback Blake Bortles could have the best chance of improving his overall record in this week’s game against the Chiefs.
Bortels has thrown for over 500 yards and five touchdowns, and he is on pace to become the first Jaguars quarterback to throw for 3,000 yards and 30 touchdowns in a season since Steve Young in 2003.
The Bears are the only team in their division to have two of their starting running backs on injured reserve, with Brandon Marshall and Theo Riddick both on injured Reserve.
Marshall is expected on the physically unable to perform list, while Riddicks has a groin injury.
Marshall was injured in Week 2 against the Cardinals, while his teammate Riddic is on the PUP list with a foot injury.
Marshall had five carries for 12 yards against the Cards in Week 3, while he also had four carries for 13 yards against Seattle.
Riddick was out of the lineup in Week 4 against the 49ers due to a hamstring strain, while Marshall is the only running back on the injured reserve list.
If the Bears can manage to hold onto their offensive line and get the offense going, this game could be a big win for them.
The Browns have been a lot better on defense than they have been on offense.
The Browns have allowed just 3.5 sacks per game and are allowing the fewest rushing yards in the fourth quarter.
They also have the lowest points allowed per game at 5.5.
The Eagles are in danger of falling out of playoff contention if they fall short against the Giants.
The Giants are one of the worst rushing defenses in the NFC West, and they are allowing just 2.5 rushing yards a game and have
