(AP) - According to an Associated Press study, NFL teams paid more than a half-billion dollars to Week 1 starters who missed games because of injuries this season and players who ended the year on injured reserve.
And the players sidelined the most in a league devoted more and more to speed are wide receivers.
Much of the recent focus has been on protecting high-priced quarterbacks and limiting head injuries.
But keeping wideouts and the defenders who try to stop them has occupied most of the NFL’s medical personnel this season.
