or tearing tendon from their foot....
or having his brains scrambled by an elbow to the chin...
How about the shoulder injuries, the knee injuries, the foot injuries. All of those could be lessened with proper strength and conditioning workouts. Of course maybe it is just coincidence that this team is in the top 5 every year in games missed. I guess it must be dumb luck.

And I like Tinsley.
Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
And life itself, rushing over me
Life itself, the wind in black elms,
Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
Even when Tinsley is playing he is injured. So yes he is inuured and has to sit out by the end of each season, but the injuries he has and with which he plays through also hampers his game.
He also gets the flu at least twice a season or a sinus infection or a bad cold
Another night, another backside-kicking. They just hit you from so many sides, now, in waves. It's like a cavalry, running down hill and trampling you underfoot. You have no tactical advantage, you're just swinging wildly in the mud, and the best strategy might be to play dead.
They are an absolute onslaught right now.
