It's honestly like the word "bust". It's so overused and half the time, people dont even know what it truly means. I actually found a pretty good site regarding injury history because I wanted to look back on Bradford. It's http://sportsinjurypredictor.com It actually shows a model of each player in professional sports and where they got hurt along with descriptions of the injury. It's funny when you look at Rudy's model compared to Bradfords. Rudy had a lot more injuries but nobody ever talks about Rudy anymore. It use to be constant talk on here that Rudy is injury prone.Cliff wrote:Spielman made the right move to trade for Bradford I think but I also think it's fair to say he's injury prone (if that's the phrase you want to use). That's to say he's more likely than a person who has never had an ACL tear to have problems with his knee. The fact that it has happened twice makes it worse, of course. Now there is yet a 3rd problem with the knee.
Three injuries to the same knee that is now so bad it's hard to tell what's wrong with it when it starts acting up. I don't know if that's "injury prone" but I do know it's a lot more likely to get injured than someone who hasn't had the same problems.
I dont know I just dont think I classify Bradford as injury prone. It seemed he got that label early in his career and nobody ever let it go. I mean he hasnt had an issue with his knee in over 3 years. It's just another one of those touchy words. Some people with perceive him like that others wont. IMO, guys like Tyler Eifert, Sean Lee, Kevin White and even Luke Kuechly now are injury prone IMO. They are hurt year after year. I dont look at Bradford like those guys
Right same goes for Rudy vs. Dallas when a guy tackled him and literally sat on his foot and broke it. It more just the way you fall at times can tear or break something.Bridgewater's ACL could very well put him into the same category before it's all said and done. We just don't know yet. His concussion I think we all know wasn't a result of him being "prone to injury".
