    It's not my imagination. Season-ending injuries are definitely up so far this season.

    Wow on that % increase. RT @FFD: Season-ending injuries on the rise:
    2012 (through Week 7): 84 players
    2013: 124 players

    With the new 6 wk IR classification, I am sure there are a couple who are missed in that count too as teams are hopeful with some of these guys and not tossing them on full IR as in the past. It sure does seem way up...and it is.

    If Hillis can make the Madden cover again this year, will it reverse the curse?

    It seemed that way to me too. Pretty marked increase.

    With the hit lower mantra, is that part of the cause?

    More knees, fewer concussions.

    I don't know if knees are up, haven't seen the numbers broken down. The theory makes sense, but who knows?

    I did read where non-contact injuries are up. Hard to really pin-point cause and effect I think.

    As odd as it sounds, I wonder if the reduced training camp is also a factor? :dunno

    With all the hamstring and quad injuries so early this year, I think that is most definitely true. Probably is contributing to the other injuries too.

    Not just that but not playing in the pre-season.

    I remember when the pre-season was for tuning up the team, not setting the bench order. :gerg

    Myself, I don't buy it. Players get hurt all the time in training camp and pre-season games. I can't see how a reduction would lead to more injuries. They still work out as much as they ever did.

    Are there more leg injuries? With all the helmet to helmet talk, more guys are going for the legs. Bye Bye knees..

    Not true, the training regimen in summer camp has been cut back from what it used to be. Hell, guys used to show up fat and be ready for the regular season. If they did that now they would be cut, there is not enough training to get into playing shape. Yes, they have OTA's, but those are more skull sessions than anything else. Many coaches are bemoaning the new labor agreement, if they have been around long enough to know the difference.

    I'm thinking with Bradford injured, the Rams sucking it up, the world series starting Monday IN STL no less and with such a rabid/large baseball fanbase, MNF might be the least attended game EVER. :deal

    It's not going to be an interesting game that's for sure. I wonder about the schedules sometimes. Who thought the Panthers and Bucs would be a good game for a thurs night. I guess pre-season it's hard to know for sure. I don't really see any matchups that look interesting this week. Maybe Chiefs and Browns, Jets vs. Bengals, and maybe Dolphins and Pats. :dunno I'm glad I'll be away from the TV.

    I'm thinking Coach Frazier can't catch a break.
