    Week Five saw a dramatic dip in injuries from previous weeks. Lets take a look at who hit the injury report for teams.

    Packers OLB Clay Matthews - Abdominal tear (4 weeks)
    Clay Matthews is a superb defensive player and with how the team is playing this could be a very slippery slope. The other NFC North teams are continuing to win and the Packers are hot and cold. Time will tell if they can step it up on defense in his absence.

    Disaster Rating: 6/10
    This team is already struggling and to lose one of their defensive captains is going to derail the team defensively. The offense is going to have to pick it up.

    Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett - Shoulder tear (3 weeks)
    Lockett will be missed and luckily it's only 3 weeks. The team should be able to find the end zone without him although it might be a little more difficult getting there.

    Disaster Rating: 4/10
    The Seahawks are already missing some key offensive pieces but have continued to win. I don't see them stopping with Wilson stepping up his game and the defense being superb week in and week out.

    Buccaneers C Ali Marpet - Broken ribs (4 weeks)
    It's never easy losing an offensive lineman, especially when it's your stud center. Injuries like this can be devastating to an offense. We'll see how much it will affect the run game and pass protection over the next month.

    Disaster Rating: 6/10
    Marpet is vital to the success of the Bucs o-line. With him gone, I think it's safe to say that the team will suffer a little on the offensive end.
