We are only one preseason game into the year and the injuries are already starting to pop up on nearly every NFL team. The NFC South has had their fair share of injuries thus far with some impacting the division greatly. No team can avoid injury throughout the year. It’s just part of the game, but some teams are more unfortunate than others.

The NFC South has been hit quite hard thus far, but has managed to avoid major injury with the exception to just a couple of players. There are still three preseason games left to play for each team, but some marquee players are expected to miss at least one of the remaining tune up games.

The NFC South division is wide open at the moment and has the potential to be a very solid division when the 2015 regular season is all said and done. Will injuries play into who wins the division this year or will everything work itself out over the course of the next few months? Let’s take a look at some players who are battling through injury.
