First, I realize there was a thread in the "game day vs Broncos titled "injuries" but that thread will gone in the near future. I will add a link to that thread so the info can be referenced if needed. link

I'm going to address injuries that specifically affect Browns players...

Today, according to Pro Football Reference, the Browns have no less than 4 players listed as out, with "calf injuries". That may not seen alarming until you do some research and find out that none of the other teams in our division have even one player listed as being out due to a calf injury. What the hell..!!

To add to the concern, the Browns players that are listed as being limited or out due to calf injuries are Greg Newsome (limited), Kareem Hunt (out/DNP), Mack Wilson (limited/questionable) who still played 1/3 of defensive snaps and 50% of special teams snaps, and Nick Chubb, who was listed as (out/DNP).

It's not just the fact that it's 4 players listed with calf injuries, it's 3 starters and Kareem Hunt.

What is it with the Browns and calf injuries?

Actually, you can skip preseason and be perfectly fine, and I don't put much stock in what this Dr. Choad says. That PhD means very little to me when he's just using it to snipe Tweets from afar.
You don't acclimate to collisions and contusions by doing more of it. You don't condition yourself for more of it. The ONLY thing you can acclimate to is asking the body for suddenness and going full-tilt repeatedly, which is 50% a function of the central nervous system and the rest is just maintaining flexibility and elasticity and there's just no way these guys aren't maintaining that level of effort. That's what training is. Taking hits isn't going to prevent injury.

Dr. Allan Sills is the chief medical officer for the NFL. Dr. David Chao is an orthopedic surgeon and team doctor for the San Diego Chargers. This isn't coming from "afar"...


If he hasn't had access to Baker's imagery and examined him, yes it is.

You can't stop him: you can only hope to contain him.

Hits the hole like a heat-seeking millipede.
A threat to break it (hip) on any play.

I'm not a guru on exercise,, but I am not sure there is much of a connection when it comes to doing things specifically to deal with injuries you don't know you'll have.
