Unfortunately in a sport like football, injuries are bound to occur. Week 1 saw players that will be forced to be placed on IR, which will force them to miss the season or at least eight weeks of the year.

Here are six notable players who will go on IR due to a Week 1 injury. Missing from the list is Tyreek Hill, wide receiver for the Chiefs. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, his clavicle injury will force him out of action for 4-6 weeks, but he will not be placed on IR for now.

A torn labrum and rotator cuff will force Abram, the 27th overall pick in the 2019 draft, to likely miss the rest of the season. Despite suffering the injury in the first quarter, he still played 77 percent of the snaps in Week 1, according to Pro Football Rumors.
