Jalen Hurd, WR San Francisco 49ers
Wide receiver Jalen Hurd is undergoing an MRI today to determine if he tore his ACL in practice on Monday. Hurd was a 3rd round pick of the San Francisco 49ers in the 2019 NFL Draft but missed his entire rookie season with a back injury.
Gerald McCoy, DT Dallas Cowboys
Cowboy’s veteran defensive tackle Gerald McCoy’s season is over after rupturing a quad tendon on Monday in practice. McCoy spent nine seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and last season with the Carolina Panthers and has recorded 334 tackles and 59.5 sacks in his career.
#Cowboys COO Stephen Jones tells reporters that DT Gerald McCoy’s MRI showed a ruptured quad tendon and he’s out for the season. Initial fear had been an ACL, but the MRI delivers bad news, regardless. A major blow.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 17, 2020
Iman Marshall, CB Baltimore Ravens
Iman Marshall suffered a season-ending knee injury in practice over the weekend. Marshall is a fourth round pick in 2019 who spent most of his rookie season on injured reserved but made an appearance in three games. He was competing for depth at the cornerback position.
#Ravens coach John Harbaugh said CB Iman Marshall suffered a major knee injury yesterday, and I’m told he tore several ligaments including the ACL. Surgery coming for the 2019 fourth rounder. He’ll miss this season, but has time to recover for 2021.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 17, 2020
Alex Brown, CB Kansas City Chiefs
Cheifs’ cornerback Alex Brown was signed to their practice squad at the beginning of the 2019 season after spending time with the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, and New York Jets after going undrafted out of South Carolina State. Brown appeared in three regular season games and all three postseason contests for the Cheifs, primarily on special teams. Brown’s hope of finding a bigger role with the Super Bowl champions will have to wait as a torn ACL has landed him on injured reserve.
Via his Instagram account, #Chiefs DB Alex Brown acknowledges that he sustained a torn ACL early in camp, which a source confirmed. Tough news since Brown played in the team’s 3 postseason games last year. pic.twitter.com/5FAPINrvi1— Nate Taylor (@ByNateTaylor) August 15, 2020
Artie Burns, CB Chicago Bears
Burns fell out of favor in Pittsburgh to a point to where he wasn’t active on game day to finish the 2019 season. The former first-round selection from the 2016 NFL draft was obviously not given a 5th-year option and moved on to the Chicago Bears for a minimum contract. But on Tuesday, an ACL injury has reportedly ended his 2020 season.

Grant Delpit, S Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns Safety Grant Delpit’s season is over after he tore his ACL in practice on Tuesday. He was the 44th overall pick in the 2020 draft out of LSU where he played for three season recording 199 tackles, seven sacks and eight interceptions. A major blow for the Browns secondary.
Browns fear that second-round draft pick, safety Grant Delpit, tore his Achilles during today’s practice, per source. Delpit was slated to start at free safety.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 25, 2020
Xavier McKinney, S; David Mayo, LB New York Giants
The New York Giants suffered two major injuries to their defense on Wednesday. Safety Xavier McKinney was the 36th overall pick in the 2020 draft after three years at the University of Alabama where he recorded 175 tackles, six sacks and five interceptions. There is hope that he will be able to play at some point this season. He is set to undergo surgery in Manhattan on Wednesday
Linebacker David Mayo was set to begin his second year in New York after starting his career for four year in Carolina. He has recorded 144 tackles in his career and two sacks. He is scheduled to have surgery on Thursday and the team hopes to have him back soon. He played a pivotal role in their defense last season while starting 13 games.
For #Giants LB David Mayo, the expectation going into surgery is that it’ll be a meniscus trim, source said, rather than the full repair. That could put him back on the field in 3 weeks or so. https://t.co/k6dw2KzLMP— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 26, 2020
David Montgomery, RB Chicago Bears
Chicago Bears Running Back David Montgomery strained his groin at practice on Wednesday after slipping attempting to take a hand-off. Montgomery was a third round selection of the Bears last season from Iowa State. He rushed for 889 yards and six touchdowns last season while also catching 25 receptions and one touchdown for 185 yards.
Per Larry Mayer ChicagoBears.com
“We don’t know the severity,” coach Matt Nagy told reporters during a video call. “He ended up doing it in an individual drill. It just slipped out from him on that. So that’s where he’s at. We don’t know anything else from that.”
Updated: Bears’ HC Matt Nagy said RB David Montgomery suffered a groin strain, and he is undergoing further testing. Team said he was not carted off, he walked off the field on his own.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 26, 2020
