NFL Injury Report: Eagles Escape Mostly Unscathed

The Philadelphia Eagles were lucky to get out of Cleveland after Week 1 without any significant injuries.

Andy Reid's team didn't play its best despite winning 17-16 on the road. However, the best news lies on the injury front which seems to be just about spotless.

No player left the field due to injury against the Browns, although maybe Kurt Coleman wanted to.

On one play in the game, Coleman was absolutely flattened by Cleveland running back Trent Richardson who was making his pro debut. The Alabama product caused quite the collision, knocking off Coleman's helmet and leaving him with gashes on his nose and upper lip. The safety also suffered a swollen lower lip from the impact.

According to ESPN.com, Coleman could care less.

"I got caught flat footed and didn't see him coming," Coleman said. "I felt the collision. But I'm OK with it. We got the win."
