Today was a brutal injury day for the National Football League and the Big Ten Conference saw multiple former star players go down.
Three of the best players in recent conference history were carted off the field on NFL Sunday.
San Francisco 49ers star defensive end Nick Bosa, New York Giants star running back Saquon Barkley and Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell went down with injuries.
All three injuries could be serious, with Bosa and Barkley having possible torn ACLs. Campbell also suffered a likely knee injury.
It was a devastating injury day for the NFL and the Big Ten in particular.
