Is it luck, maybe? We didn't have a lot of injuries last season.

Could it be, maybe, that we get a lot of effort out of our guys and their willingness to push their bodies to the limit makes them more likely to get hurt?

Who knows? Injuries are the most unpredictable thing in sports. The only thing you know for sure about them is that someone will get one.

11/04 Wednesday. Typically teams go in and get treatment study film the first day after a game and then have off the day after that which they did. Having said that it does not look a whole lot better but at least some guys are getting limited practice. The other thing is last year was an exception. Does anyone remember all of the fire the trainers threads from the years prior to last year? One more thing that does not help is having an early Bye. It normally would have been used to let guys get healthy but instead now they are grinding it out and probably causing the injury to linger.

Lets not forget that the "God King" that is Tom Brady <_<, got his chance because of injury to his starting quarterback. There is nothing anyone can do about injuries, so I will choose to look at it in a positive light. Maybe one of the 2nd/3rd string guys will step up and show their true potential and impress the pants off of everyone. Maybe our opposition spent too much time focusing on the starter and forgot to plan for our back-ups. There is always a positive way to look at every situation.

Good thought but I still find it amazing to see how many teams have so few injuries.

We're a "hospital ward" in comparison.

1. I seriously suggest that you go read J. Michael Moore's article on wednesday's injury report.

2. Note the article in your link, the status column is labeled "fantasy news"

3. The games status ie out, questionable, etc. is not published by teams until Friday so how does CBS know that on Wednesday?

4. Check the injury report published for Wednesday and Thursday at AF.com

injuries are just bad luck. Last year we did pretty good with injuries and for the most part none of our top starters have gone down yet.
