The biggest injuries from NFL preseason Week 1

From ESPN - August 13, 2017

NFL teams enter the preseason with their fingers crossed, knowing that nothing is more important than emerging from their practice games with minimal injuries. They are, however, inevitable. We will spend the summer tracking the major ailments to arise during the games themselves. To be clear, this list wo not include injuries that are suffered in practice.

Here are the most notable from Week 1 of the 2017 preseason:

LB Raekwon McMillan, Miami Dolphins

Injury: Torn right ACL

Prognosis: McMillan will miss the season. A second-round draft choice, McMillan was expected to be the Dolphins' starting middle linebacker. But he suffered the injury Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons while covering a punt -- and before he took a single defensive snap.

CB Damarious Randall, Green Bay Packers

Injury: Concussion

Prognosis: The NFL concussion protocol is different for each player, so there is no way to estimate how much time Randall will miss. But it was an unfortunate start for a player who missed six games last season because of a groin injury. Penciled in as a starter for 2017, Randall will be replaced in the meantime by rookie Kevin King. The injury occurred Thursday night when Philadelphia Eagles receiver Bryce Treggs delivered a blow to his head.

LB Trent Murphy, Washington Redskins

Injury: Torn ACL/MCL left knee
