NFL Week 2 social roundup: Players wish Big Ben a speedy recovery, Brady taunts Miami

Another week in the NFL, another spate of wins, losses, injuries and impressive plays.

Throughout the week, and especially over the weekend, the league's players took to social media to keep fans updated on their outfits, plans, and pre- and post-game moods. 

Tom Brady, who has made a habit of post-win Instagram posts, was joined in the practice by teammate Julian Edelman after the Patriots beat the Miami Dolphins 43-0.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson used his team's victory as a chance to honor is coach, Pete Carroll, who won his 100th game with the team on his 68th birthday. 

Many others, including Kenny Stills of the Texans and Tyrann Mathieu of the Chiefs, also took to the social media platform to commemorate their respective teams' wins, and several players reached out to wish Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger well as he went into surgery for a non-contact elbow injury he suffered against the Seattle Seahawks.

Take a look below at what the league's stars posted on Instagram during Week 2 of the season:

Love my brothers! Time to come home!
Settle in.
It’s easy to get down over difficult circumstances. I don’t let the negativity affect me that way. I’m BLESSED! I’m healthy, secure, and most importantly, I’m back doing what I love every day! Yea, I’m frustrated that we’ve lost and things haven’t went our way. But I look at my life and think, how can I complain? To be in this position is amazing, and I’m grateful I get to play this game every week. Time to attack the week and keep pushing. Let’s get it.
Patience... Not Panic ❗️🧨
