From Saquon Barkley to Nick Bosa, the NFL saw some major injuries suffered during Week 2 of the 2020 season. The game between the New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers at MetLife Stadium specifically raised eyebrows, though, as multiple players suffered injuries.
San Francisco lost Bosa, Jimmy Garoppolo, Raheem Mostert and Solomon Thomas to leg injuries in its 31-13 win over New York. All of those players could miss an extended period of time. The Jets also lost Breshad Perriman to an ankle injury.
49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead blamed the injuries on the turf at MetLife Stadium, as did head coach Kyle Shanahan, who said the turf was "sticky."
It appears the NFL is taking San Francisco's allegations pretty seriously, as the league's field operations department will now investigate the turf at the stadium, according to ProFootballTalk. The league does look at all playing fields prior to the start of each season, though it'll take an extra look at MetLife because of the injuries.
The turf at the stadium is brand new and was installed during the offseason. San Francisco will have to get used to it, though, as the Niners play the New York Giants there in Week 3.
