Prepare for the coming onslaught

As I wrote almost exactly a year ago, football is a year-round sport. As players start to practice in pads, there are going to be more and more injury reports coming out of camp detailing players with strained muscles and torn ligaments.

There’s a reason Jerry Rice lasted so long- He knew football was a sport that went 365 days a year. He had a legendary off-season workout program, and it payed when he lasted far longer than just about anyone else. Frank Gore was the first victim of off-season rustiness, and now he’s out with a broken bone in his hand. Just wait, there will be more. Lots more.

  1. So breaking your hand is a symptom of poor conditioning? A rusty hand is easier to fracture?
