PFW's 2012 All-Injury team


QB Ben Roethlisberger / Steelers
Lingering rib and shoulder injuries could prove to be insurmountable obstacles.

RB Maurice Jones-Drew / Jaguars
One of AFC’s top backs has missed last six-plus games with foot injury.

RB Rashard Mendenhall / Steelers
Team’s best back has been burdened nonstop by knee, Achilles injuries.

WR Greg Jennings / Packers
Aaron Rodgers’ favorite target missed seven games with groin injury.

WR Santonio Holmes / Jets
Loss of team’s best offensive player with Lisfranc injury has contributed to Jets’ demise.

TE Aaron Hernandez / Patriots
Just when he comes back from six-game hiatus (ankle), down goes fellow TE Gronkowski.

OLT Jake Long / Dolphins
Miami had been one of healthiest teams before losing perennial Pro Bowler in Week 13.

OLG Carl Nicks / Buccaneers
All-Pro selection with Saints last season was costly free-agent addition.

C Ryan Kalil / Panthers
Pro Bowler each of last three seasons is also prominent figure in locker room.

ORG Davin Joseph / Buccaneers
Losing Nicks was bad enough. Losing Joseph, also considered a top guard, is double trouble.

ORT Todd Herremans / Eagles
Eagles O-line a lost cause after losing Herremans, OLT Jason Peters and C Jason Kelce.


DE Glenn Dorsey / Chiefs
Loss of team’s best D-lineman has wreaked havoc with K.C.’s defense.

NT Phil Taylor / Browns
Losing Taylor (pectoral) the first half of the season was major punch in the nose.

DE Adrian Clayborn / Buccaneers
And yet another former first-round draft pick bites the dust!

ROLB Brian Orakpo / Redskins
Losing two-time Pro Bowler (torn pectoral) along with DE Adam Carriker a double whammy.

RILB Sean Lee / Cowboys
PFW Midseason All-Pro selection was playing out of his head before going down for the count.

LILB Brian Cushing / Texans
Loss of defense’s leading tackler and emotional leader still could take its toll down stretch.

LOLB Terrell Suggs / Ravens
Comeback from torn Achilles much sooner than expected has eased Ravens’ pain a bit.

CB Darrelle Revis / Jets
Arguably the league’s most talented defender went down one week before Holmes.

CB Lardarius Webb / Ravens
One of AFC’s better corners was playing quite well before Week Six knee injury.

SS Troy Polamalu / Steelers
Established Grade-A playmaker has missed all but three games.

FS Louis Delmas / Lions
Cranky knee has been ongoing issue for beleaguered Lions secondary.


PK Nate Kaeding / ex-Chargers
  P Chris Jones / Cowboys
RS Marc Mariani / Titans
LS Mike Windt / Chargers
