    NFL's most injury-prone players

    All I can say is this ... :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    The man missed a season with a torn ACL/MCL and before that only missed less than 1 1/2 quarters of football in the AFCCG with Pittsburgh back in 2002 and he is on a list of Most Injury Prone Players?

    I guess there is someone out there who really believes Belichick's injury listing with Brady Probable (Shoulder) :rofl:

    Bob Sanders never played a full 16 game season. I would had thought for sure that he was the most injury prone NFL player, but then again, maybe he is on the list of most overrated players. Come on, he has played in 47 rg season game and missed 49.

    On top of it all, he is looking really pale in his ESPN profile pic [see link].

    I don't really see the issue here. Injury prone doesn't have to equate to missed games. We've heard of Brady injuries time and again.

    Those lists that FoxSports does are fluff pieces that are pretty much for entertainment purposes only, with little or no data, substance or thought behind them - and this list was no exception.

    Add in the editorial comments by the author and it's obvious he's just trying to drive some web traffic by being semi-controversial and stirring the pot; it appears that he has succeeded in that quest.

    If it was a serious study then Shawn Crable would surely be on there somewhere, but since very few would recognize his name he's not included. Sanders may be the only one that deserves to be on that list.

    Looks like a recycled article. He mentions Schaub as most injured and cites " his one full season in 2009".. He played all 16 games in 2010 as well.. So his most injured player hasn't missed a game in three seasons (back to 2008)?????????

    Fail....

    I was just talking specifically about Brady. These players have so many injuries that never make the papers that any list like this is going to be just a time waster, but the O.P. was acting as if Brady being mentioned as oft-injured was insane.

    Guess the lock out is forcing the media to be more creative and when that happens, we all lose. On that note, did anyone see which game topped the list of Revenge Games on NFL Network?

    Brady doesn't saunter, he sashays. (Not that there's anything wrong with that)

    Who care?!? Technically, Brady is the most injury prone player in the NFL. I don't think there is a player who has either being out to injuries or at least on the injury report for more consecutive weeks than Brady. In fact, Brady may hold the record.

    If you read what they wrote, his inclusion was mostly a joke.

    I agree - wasn't Brady on the injury list every week for the last decade with a "probable" shoulder?

    Missing games is what makes a guy injury prone imo. If a guy has smaller injuries and he is able to play through them then that's toughness.


    Bob Sanders is injury prone, Chad Pennington is injury prone, Hasselbeck is injury prone.

    No way would i call Brady injury prone. Take away that freak knee injury and he would have what...the 2nd longest starting streak among QB's.

    Amazing that we hear about every little injury that Brady/Manning/Big Ben/Phil Rivers get and we never hear anything about injuries Ohrnberger and Wilhite suffer.

    It's almost like there's more information out there about the best, most important, and most popular players in the game.

    EDIT: In case my sarcasm wasn't clear enough, we have no idea about the actual rate of injuries and surgereis to NFL players across positions to know where Brady ranks. It's an inane discussion.

    Every player in the NFL plays with injuries. You're missing the point. Brady hasn't had a serious injury, enough to miss a game, since he tore his ACL. And before that, he never sat out a game for injury.

    If you're going to compare him to other NFL players, then claiming that Brady is one of the most injury prone is just stupid. I can think of dozens of other guys, even on the Patriots, who are more injury prone than Brady.

    Agreed.


    Brady has actually sustained a large number of injuries, he just plays through most of them. Heck, Brady played with a sports hernia around the same time McNabb was sidelined by one.

    So based on that logic, a guy who plays nearly every game with different injuries is more injury prone than a guy who missed one or more seasons with the same injury?

    I understand the distinction - I just think its silly for a reporter to somehow single out players who play as more injury prone than those who sit.

    The writer/writers obviously don't watch the NFL or live on the Russian Space Station Mir to have not included Troy Polamalu on their list.

    Injury prone just means that you get injured a lot. It doesn't mean that you miss games, and it doesn't mean that you aren't a tough guy.

    2007: Brady injured for the big game, game clearly affected

    2008: Brady lost for season with injury

    2009: Brady plays with rib injury (frequently reported as broken ribs), and other nagging problems such as broken finger

    2010: Brady injures foot, has surgery at end of season


    Posters can cry all they want about Brady being on this list but, like much like with the Favre fanatics, one of the things his fans love about the Merry Metrosexual is his willingness to take a hit and play through pain and injury.

    weren't people blaming his performance in the jets playoff game on some kind of bad foot or something?
