There were several big injuries that shook the NFL and its fans on Sunday. Perhaps none bigger than the broken foot sustained by 49ers Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, thrusting a seemingly unknown backup into a starring role.
Few running backs have burst on to the scene their rookie season like what we've seen out of New York Jets running back Breece Hall. After another strong performance in the making on Sunday, Hall left the game was an apparent knee injury.
The Cy-Hawk game is as important of sporting event as any on the Iowa sports fan's calendar. On Saturday, the rivalry will play it's 69th ever game, set to kickoff at 3:00 from Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.
The College Football season continues to creep closer, with week 0 games now on the horizon. Area programs were not represented particularly well in the first coaches poll ahead of the upcoming season.
