View Full Version : Injury Prone Players (like Davenport)

I would really like to know, what makes athletes "injury prone"?

I always thought it could one of three things, or a combination

(1) Genetics
(2) Lack of stretching
(3) Always staying tense instead of relaxed, and absorbing the blow instead of reflecting it

Anyone else have any thoughts on this? I think most players in the NFL are genetically gifted, so it could be a matter of stretching or staying too tight when it comes to being injury prone.

Sometimes maybe just plain old bad luck

True. I think that's the answer I was looking for, now that I think about it
