I never got a response from my comment the other day, so I thought I would turn into a fan post.
The guy plays 3 seasons and misses only one game with an injury (at FS = not his natural position).
In 2012 he plays at a Pro Bowl level when back at SS from the first game up to week 10 of the season when he injured his achilles to which on December 15, 2011, Coach Mike Shanahan stated that he believed Landry "would’ve been defensive player of the year" for the 2010 season had he not been injured.
Then does not have the benefit of working with training staff in the off season due to the lockout before being "rushed" back by the training/coaching staff once the season started, subsequently staining his hamstring.
Next up In Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks, after receiving a cut block, Landry left the game for a quarter before coming back into the game and playing with a groin injury in Week 12. Then he missed the next two games before being placed on the IR due to his achillies acting up again (which means he probably was dealing with that same injury from the beginning of the season.
One of the recurring themes in the injury reports this preseason is the Achilles tendon injury. So far 10 players have either ruptured or injured their Achilles tendon. While injuries were expected to be more frequent this season due to the NFL lockout, no one expected this many Achilles injuries.
How does this equal "injury prone." I’m so confused. The injury that probably never fully healed from last year was re-injured in the same way those 10 players ruptured their achillies and now he is injury prone? If an when he is healed, or should I say when he was last at full strength he was playing at Defensive Player of the Year level (as assessed by his head coach).
Some folks have extremely short memories jump to all types of conclusions, yeah he has his flaws, but geez…"injury prone?" SMH
