With week three of the NFL season having wrapped up, apart from tonight's Monday game, teams already have to deal with managing and overcoming injuries. However, not all injuries are created equal in terms of who gets injured and these notable players will be much more difficult to replace.

Eagles' Darren Sproles suffers freak injury

Yesterday, Philadelphia Eagles veteran running back Darren Sproles went down in the first half of the team's last-second 27-24 win over the rival New York Giants. Today, sources have told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen that the 34-year-old managed to break his arm and tear his ACL on the same play.

Head coach Doug Pederson later confirmed all of this, saying that the dynamic back will be having surgery on his arm today and that he will also knee surgery on his knee. Given his age and the injuries suffered, it is possible that the three-time Pro Bowler may end up deciding to call it a career.

Good news for Kelvin Benjamin

Carolina Panthers top receiver Kevin Benjamin left yesterday's 34-13 loss to the rival New Orleans Saints in the first quarter after his left leg bent backward awkwardly. He left the field under his own power and went to the locker room before being ruled out for the rest of the game.

However, the team got good news on his injury as head coach Ron Rivera confirmed that an MRI showed that he has suffered no structural damage. This is good news for a Panthers offense that struggled yesterday without him and Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen.

Hroniss Grasu suffers hand injury

In their surprising 23-17 overtime upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Chicago Bears lost starting center Hroniss Grasu.

He left the game with a hand injury and emerged from the locker room with a giant cast on his hand, and with it announced that he was questionable to return.

Grasu was making his first start of the season after the third-round pick missed all of 2016 with an ACL injury. When asked today about his status, head coach John Fox was mum on giving too many details.

Ramon Foster also suffers hand injury

On the other side of the Bears game, Pittsburgh Steelers left guard Ramon Foster also had to leave the game after suffering a hand injury. Foster was injured in the first quarter trying to recover a Ben Roethlisberger fumble and had to be taken to the locker room, with his return being announced as questionable. Foster did not return to the game and his current status is unknown.
