When we looked at AGL for head coaches last year, Jay Gruden was only surpassed by Mike McCoy's San Diego teams. After Washington finished last in AGL in 2017, we can say that Gruden has had the most injured teams of any coach since 2002. This 2017 total does not even include anything for safety Su'a Cravens, who shocked everyone when he decided to retire a week before the regular season. He was placed on an exempt list and missed the entire season after getting treated for post-concussion syndrome. Middle linebacker Mason Foster (11.3 AGL) and first-round rookie Jonathan Allen (11.0 AGL) were Washington's two biggest losses by AGL. The skill positions also lost tight end Jordan Reed (8.3 AGL), running backs Rob Kelley (8.6 AGL) and Chris Thompson (6.1 AGL), and wide receiver Terrelle Pryor (7.1 AGL) for extended periods of time. As we'll see next week in the unit breakdowns, the depth of injuries along the offensive line really pushed Washington over the top here. Washington had a league-high 10 players incur at least 6.0 AGL.

Re: Redskins Injuries and What can be done

Another problem area could also be technique. I remember watching RG3 and thinking he was the opposite of someone trying to protect themselves when contact was coming, almost like he was contorting himself to increase his risk of injury from a collision. Watching him play it was no shock that he had the injury history that he did.

But conditioning and flexibility can help stave off injury with soft tissue stuff. I can't say for sure the Redskins are lacking in this area but we tear pecs, hurt hamstrings, hurt obliques, hurt calfs, all that kind of stuff, we seem to have that market cornered. I do question whether there is too much focus at Redskins Park on brute strength and not enough on flexibility.
If that is the focus then a likely cause is dehydration the inability for muscle to retain water in the first place but also dehydration is the leading factor in sports related injuries. Regardless that goes back to conditioning.

Mccoy and Smith were and Colt had a successful surgery.

Of course Colt's bone did not pierce the skin when he broke his leg, so the bone was never exposed to the outside air. He had about the same risk of infection as you would if you got your appendix taken out.

Alex's risk was much much higher. I don't blame the hospital one bit for Alex's infection - it would not be considered a 'hospital acquired' infection. He got that shit basically the moment his bone poked through.

That makes sense

Most of the injuries this year that have been shown on television this year have been due to ankles, knees, legs, and shoulders bending under immense pressure and weight in ways they are not made to bend.

I get the knee jerk reactions about the S&C staff and trainers and all that, but seriously, just go down the list with each player, body parts bend certain ways and when heavy players moving fast cause them to bend in bad ways injuries are going to happen no matter how flexible or strong players are.
