Week 1 injuries we're tracking from Sunday's games

Danny Woodhead's regular-season debut as a Baltimore Raven was cut short.

Woodhead was carted off the field after suffering a hamstring injury during a non-contact play and did not return to game action.

The veteran back, who signed with the Ravens in March, was sidelined for the 2016 season after tearing his ACL in Week 2 and broke his fibula during the 2014 season.

Ravens linebacker Za'Darius Smith sustained a knee sprain and was carted off the field. Smith did not return for the remainder of the contest.
