Just a fast junk blog here before a thought gets snowed under.
Remember a few years back when teams were losing guys because of a 'torn bicep'? Well, this year's injury-du-jour seems to be either "Achilles" or "calf". What's up? An Achilles rupture used to be the dreaded injury that happened to some pro athlete (or somebody you know) about once every decade. Now we see guys go down almost every week with that or a lesser variation. And "calf"? Patriots have had Van Noy on the sidelines for weeks. Brown in Pittsburgh has an equally undefined calf injury that has Squealer fans... well... squealing.
What is it? Some new piece of equipment everybody's using? Some new technique? Some new PED? A big calf-strengthening fad? Teams guzzling fluoroquinalone antibiotics?
Fishy fishy fishy.
