Massacre Monday: Several teams losing top stars to major injuries

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles have mostly come out healthy through seven weeks of action. While the hamstring pull of Michael Vick has cost him two games, the only other injuries have come to the likes of Pat Chung, Nick Foles, James Casey and Chris Polk. Vick is expected back shortly and Foles will likely remain his backup for the foreseeable future.

While the Eagles have only suffered a handful of injuries since the start of the regular season, Week 7 has cost several teams some of their best players. The loss of top flight players may force their teams to act out of desperation and make a move by way of a trade. This is why the Eagles may be keeping an eye on the injury reports throughout Week 8 as the trade deadline approaches. Even if the Eagles are not in the deal-making mood, NFC East rivals like the Giants and Redskins could make a move.

Let's take a look at some of the serious injuries that have been reported on what has become "Massacre Monday":

More serious injuries are still awaiting MRIs and other tests. Dashon Goldson is set to undergo an MRI and we are still waiting on an update on Foles.

In sadder news, Titans owner Bud Adams passed away on Monday at the age of 90. He was founding member of the AFL and had owned the teams since 1960. He along with Al Davis, Lamar Hunt and Ralph Wilson were instrumental in that league as well as the merger with the NFL.
