Every NFL team and fan base fears one of their most integral players going down in relatively meaningless preseason games. That is the realization of the Eagles and fans back in Philadelphia Thursday night, and it happened in the weirdest way possible.

The Philadelphia Eagles kicked off Week 2 of the 2016 preseason against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but Caleb Sturgis’ night came to an early and painful end before it even started.

Sturgis, who had his helmett off at the time, was reportedly nailed in the head by an arid punt from his own punter during warm-ups.

Sturgis is now out of Thursday’s nights game and will undergo further evaluation to see when he can practice or play next.

  2. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.|

  3. The root of your writing whilst appearing agreeable in the beginning, did not really work properly with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a while. I still have got a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do well to help fill in all those breaks. In the event that you can accomplish that, I could undoubtedly be fascinated.
