Week 1 NFL injury news: Blaine Gabbert starting for Jags

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

Here are some of the notable injuries entering Week 1 and what it all might mean. For the full inactives list, click here.

  • Atlanta cornerback Asante Samuel is out, meanwhile, and that means the Saints passing game could really be dangerous.
  • There was some question about whether Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert was healthy enough to start. Officially, he is.
  • Though Lions defensive tackle Kevin Williams is out with a knee injury, first-round pick Sharrif Floyd will not get the start. That goes to Letroy Guion.
  • Jets receiver Santonio Holmes, probably the most-explosive player on an offense that will struggle with its lack of talent, gets the start. He had been out for most of the preseason with a foot injury, and there had been reports that Holmes perhaps had been milking the injury because he's a free agent after this season.
  • After a fun little journey on Hard Knocks, Bengals rookie defensive end Margus Hunt is inactive.
