StubPass's Featured News of the Week: NFL Week One Worries

NEWARK, DE--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) - StubPass, a premier provider of guaranteed and hard-to-find NFL tickets is taking a look at the first week of the 2010 NFL season, and the impact of players that were sidelined.

NFL players suffer their share of injuries. Serious injuries in week one, however, can quickly become a nightmare for any team, and possibly impact an entire season.

Week one saw its share of concussions. Philadelphia Eagles (tickets) quarterback Kevin Kolb and Carolina Panthers quarterback Matt Moore both left their games on Sunday due to concussions. New York Giants (tickets) tight end Kevin Smith and Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Stewart Bradley also suffered head injuries.

Detroit Lions (tickets) quarterback Matthew Stafford was blindsided with a sack from Julius Peppers of the Chicago Bears, and left the game with a right shoulder injury. Even the seemingly unstoppable Indianapolis Colts (tickets) couldn't escape injury during week one: veteran safety Bob Sanders left in the first quarter with an elbow injury during the Colts game against the Houston Texans (tickets).

The Pittsburgh Steelers (tickets) have already started their 2010 season without Ben Roethlisberger and right tackle Willie Colon. Game one against the Atlanta Falcons (tickets) didn't take it easy on the Steelers, as they lost Pro Bowl nose tackle Casey Hampton in the first half with a hamstring injury and left tackle Max Starks with a high ankle sprain. With the uncertainty of the injuries, the Steelers may have their work cut out for them when the Tennessee Titans (tickets) host the Steelers in week two.

Jeff Davis, Marketing and Press Director for StubPass, says this is just another beginning of an NFL season. "Each year, players are sidelined. Sometimes for one game, sometimes for the season. But there are players -- oftentimes unknowns -- who manage to step up when called upon, and keep a team's season afloat. That's what brings NFL fans to games. There is such a sense of unpredictability and the idea that anything can happen."

Certainly, as week one has shown, anything can happen, and it's time for some unknowns to step up. The week two matchups should certainly prove interesting after the events that have unfolded during week one.
