Football is a year-round sport

As training camps are getting underway, we’re starting to hear reports of the first injuries as players begin to work out those muscles that have been resting since the season ended. Bruschi hurt his wrist, Vick hurt his leg, Bentley’s out for the season, and there are many other such injuries. Some, I’m sure, are just plain old football injuries, and they can’t really be avoided. But how many are from poor offseason conditioning? You hear about these workout warriors that lift weights and excercise several hours a day all year, and you shake your head and think they’re working too hard. But maybe that’s the way to do it. Every year reports flood out of training camps with out of condition players ripping muscles and hurting themselves because they weren’t in good enough condition to practice. It’s already started, but I think more and more in the future players are going to have to start working out all year just to stay healthy enough to play during the season.
