1) Chicago Bears defensive end Lamarr Houston: In Week 8 against the Patriots, Houston sacks Jimmy Garoppolo then tears his ACL celebrating. Why was Garoppolo in the game you ask? Because New England was up by 25 points and benched their starters.
2) Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch: Sacks Aaron Rodgers in first quarter of Week 3. Gives State Farm free plug with mock-Discount Double Check move. Tears ACL. Gets put on injured reserve. Then a week later shows off North Carolina State education when he says he'd "do it again."
3) New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul: Starts week with 10 fingers, ends with nine. Becomes textbook example for future Fourth of July PSAs.
4) Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback C.J. Wilson: Loses twice as many fingers as Pierre-Paul, but because he barely plays for the league's worst team nobody notices.
C.J. Wilson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Sure, Pierre-Paul's amputation went viral. But Wilson's amputations (note: plural) are likely to be far more costly. The Giants reportedly pulled their $60 million dollar offer to Pierre-Paul, but the two-time Pro Bowler is still likely to sign a contract tender of nearly $15 million. Contrast that with the previously undrafted Wilson who (a) most people probably think is a pitcher for the Angels, and (b) is in the last year of a non-guaranteed deal for roughly the league minimum.
