Shanahan said Orakpo has torn his left pectoral and Carriker has suffered a quad tendon tear. The coach added that both are expected to have surgery within the next week.
Maybe I forget the carnage from previous years or in the Internet age you about everything for every team, but I do not recall the constant number of season ending injuries every week that we hear about now occurring when NFL games were played like a steel cage death match during bygone days likethe 1970s
