Although Super Sunday rightfully receives a lot of hype as an unofficial national sports holiday, the NFL’s first full day of games certainly can’t be far behind. We’ve reached that momentous date on the calendar, and Sunday’s inaugural slate of the 2022 season is relatively light on the injury front. In fact, there are a few stars who tend to dress up after having long chances earlier this offseason, giving fantasy fanatics plenty of reason for the optimism that’s still inherent in Week 1.

Without further ado, let’s dive into the latest news on the health front as of Sunday morning:
