This is training camp. Guys have not been doing football for months and suddenly spring back in the middle of summer heat. It happens. 

What is this crazy world ending toe injury?

Had athelete feet when I was a teen,,, A friend told me if I'd always wear White Cotton socks, I wouldn't get it.. So I starting always wearing White cotton socks except on Church and special occassions.. Never had it again,, in the last 40 years.. That was a good day to learn that lesson.. Maybe this will help you that struggle with it.

If it’s Turf toe, it can last a long time. Seen players go in IR in worst case scenarios. 

The other injuries are very minor and not worth panicking over.

We're just trying to play to our strengths!

I had Turf Toe as well and it took about a year to be pain free, it's no joke because you have to walk and to me its similar to the high ankle sprain where it can feel pretty good then you can set it back to day 1 pain doing something minor. Get well Benkert.

When a head coach, who generally always want to downplay injuries, says it will "knock him out for awhile." You have a catastrophic injury.

All thse strains... makes you wonder how competent our strength and conditioning staff is.

Those are all normal wear and tear injuries. When my cousin played in the NFL there wasn't a week where he didn't have some ache or strain.

A bunch of 250 - 330lbl men, purposely running into each other, if you had the aformentioned injuries and not a break or a tear, that was a good week.

We aren't escaping the injury bug this year, Hope the coaches have their **** together and can coach up our backups to play better than last year.

After what I saw from Schaub, if  Benkert is done for the season we better bring someone else in at QB - lots of teams have a viable option at backup QB but we don't, in my view.

panicking is definitely a strength of a lot of posters here, so you're correct!

They are a professional sports team training staff. Pretty sure they can handle it. Not some magic formula to keep people from getting banged up in professional sports.

They aren't even given the sword of St. Michael.
