All head coaches and most front-office executives were extremely nervous about how the 136-day lockout layoff from offseason workouts would affect their football players and eventually the rosters they are currently building.

The draft class of 2011, along with veteran players, missed rookie minicamps, organized team activities (OTAs) and mandatory minicamps during the longest NFL labor dispute in history. Players were unable to attend offseason workouts and they were deprived of consistent workout opportunities in both weight room and on-field running, timing, learning sessions and conditioning sessions.

What coaches feared is starting to become reality for many players and their organizations. While players worked out on their own and pushed themselves, the reality is that coaches motivate and push players mentally and physically every offseason and that really can’t be simulated.

Below is a look at NFL teams that have already lost key players and that will inevitably hurt their depth and playmaking ability. The injury list is growing at a faster rate than training camps in the past, with the question of whether it is a freak happening or if the lockout has taken an early toll on the NFL product:
