    So unfortunate for JC. Heal well man. Tough loss for the team too

    Is it just me or have there been a lot of this injury last 3 or so years? Athletes are better conditioned than they ever have been, the turf is better than the past…Makes you wonder.

  2. I hope his recovery goes well. I personally think the turf is one of them main reasons for the injuries. I don’t think there is enough give when these guys plant to move. I have also heard an argument for a combination of the footwear and turf causing issues.
