Camille’s Corner: NFL Injuries & La Liga

The NFL’s Current Injury List
The NFL’s current injury list totals 236 players with the Philadelphia Eagles topping off
at 28. This list includes Shelton Gibson who is experiencing a concussion and Nigel
Bradham’s suspension. So far the Eagles have lost their first 2 preseason games.
Aug 9 Steelers L31-14
Aug 16 Patriots L37-20
I know it’s just pre-season but this is a rough start. Is it too soon to make an
assumption? Do you think they can survive the volume of player that’s down?

Across the Pond in sports
Bienvenido (Welcome) La Liga!!!!!!
One of Spain’s top soccer teams will play a regular season match in the US. No definite
date set. La Liga told BBC Sports, “we cannot confirm the teams, match, date or season”.
All that is confirmed is this is no longer a rumor. There seems to be mixed emotions
with the European fans but I am betting the USA is looking forward to this event.
La Liga president Javier Tebas called it a “ground-breaking agreement”.
Chairman and owner of Relevent (Stephen Ross) said, “This extraordinary joint venture is the next giant leap in growing soccer popularity in North America”.
