List Rules Vote up the football players you expect will be hurt in the 2016-2017 NFL season.

Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.

There's nothing worse than watching your best player on your fantasy team go down to an injury. It hurts you to your core, but there is nothing you can do about it. You almost wish it was you who was lying there in pain instead of him. Unfortunately, football is a dangerous sport and injuries are inevitable.

Here is a list of players likely to be injured in the 2016-2017 season. Some of these players have had injuries in the past, others are just getting older, and some might just be in store for some bad luck this season. Vote up the ones you think are going to get hurt before Super Bowl 51 rolls around.
