Week five of the NFL season is in the books and teams are assessing their injuries. Many notable names on the offensive side of the ball went down yesterday, however, the New York Giants headlined yesterday's injuries as their receiving core got decimated.

Giants receiving core carted off

The New York Giants blew another fourth-quarter lead to drop to 0-5 for the season. As an added bonus to their nightmare season, the team saw receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard and Dwayne Harris all get carted off.

Roger Lewis was the only receiver left on the field by the end of the game for the Giants. Beckham fractured his ankle, while Harris fractured his foot.

Both players will have surgery and are done for the season, having been put on injured reserve.

Meanwhile, Marshall and Shepard both have ankle injuries and are expected to miss some time. The team has already taken steps to rebuild their receiving core, signing Tavarres King and promoting undrafted rookie Travis Rudolph from the practice squad.

Matthew Stafford

According to ESPN's Michael Rothstein, Matthew Stafford was walking gingerly and favoring his right leg after the Detriot Lions loss to the Carolina Panthers.

The quarterback received treatment on his leg but would not say much about his injury. ESPN's Dan Graziano is reporting that Stafford has an injured hamstring and a sprained ankle. Graziano also said that this week of practice will decide if he plays against the Saints. If Stafford is unavailable, Jack Ruddock would then make his first career start.

Charles Clay

Buffalo Bills tight end and leading receiver Charles Clay took a shot to the leg in the first quarter of the team's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He was helped off of the field and was then carted to the locker room to be examined. It turns out that Clay has a torn meniscus and MCL sprain and will miss a few weeks.

In his absence, Nick O'Leary will start at tight end.

Chris Conley and Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Chris Conley was carted off of the field in the fourth quarter of the team's over the Texans. He has a ruptured Achilles and will miss the rest of the season. Meanwhile, tight end Travis Kelce left the game in the second quarter after taking a hard hit. He did after a few plays but he did not return in the second half and is now in the concussion protocol. His status for next week's game is currently up in the air.
