  • Jared being held out for back injuries. Greenlaw. Two players we need for sure.

    Can't help but think with our recent past experience with preseason injuries this is not the end of it.

    Kind of just sitting here waiting on "news" to break during the next practice.

    "Seventy-two percent (n = 231) of the players had a history of foot and ankle injuries, with a total of 287 foot and ankle injuries (1.24 injuries/player injured). The most common injuries were lateral ankle sprain (n = 115), syndesmotic sprain (50), metatarsophalangeal dislocation/ turf toe (36), and fibular fracture (25). Foot and ankle injuries were most common in kickers/punters (100% incidence), special teams (100%), running backs (83%), wide receivers (83%), and offensive linemen (80%). Lateral ankle sprains, the most common injuries, were treated surgically only 2.6% of the time. Offensive linemen were most likely to have had syndesmotic sprains (32%), and quarterbacks had the highest incidence of fibular fractures (16%).

    Foot and ankle injuries are common in collegiate football players, affecting 72% of players. Thirteen percent underwent surgical treatment. Trends are seen in the types of injuries for the different player positions."

    I was training in some Nike runners and they completely screwed my foot up.  Obviously a different deal than the football cleat version, but I find that compared to other shoes they tend to be pretty terrible at providing proper support.  I don't see this high of a number of foot injuries across the board and Nike supplies a ton of other programs so I would find it hard to believe that they are the primary cause.  It definitely seems to be a crazy high number of foot injuries over the last 3 years or so.

    Many runners agree with this.  I switched to reebok's a few years ago, definitely more comfortable and support when doing anything with impact on feet, ankles and knees.

    I have quickly become a Reebok snob. They are the best shoes out there for people on their feet a lot. I made a mistake with these Nike shoes. But being frugle, I'll wear them until they die.

    people keep guessing as to why, but none of the theories are tested. it's like the coaches are just hoping it will stop. I bet we have several more broken feet before the end of the camp.

    I do wonder if our training staff are taping in a way that may be contributing to this problem, as it does seem extra prevalent and severe for the hogs and as others have mentioned there are plenty of schools wearing nikes.

    You're going to have to provide a little more in depth data on the life history of the population of Arkansas football players and their injuries to make your point

    Foot injuries are genetic dispositions combined with super strong muscles and longer lever arms. Basic physics. Kids today get so strong and can put so much torque on bones that the bones break easier. The human body wasn't designed to contain the torque and force components put on them by today's athletes.

    I'm just trying to provide a baseline for what is normal to determine if arkansas is having excessive foot injuries, or if that view is by nature, myopic.

    that number was from a study on NCAA foot/ankle injuries that is already quoted in this thread.
    (quoted below)
    http://www.mdedge.com/amjorthopedics/article/70921/foot-ankle/incidence-and-variance-foot-and-ankle-injuries-elite-college

    "Seventy-two percent (n = 231) of the players had a history of foot and ankle injuries, with a total of 287 foot and ankle injuries (1.24 injuries/player injured).

    so unless we have had more than 11 (85 x 13%) over the past 4-5 years (assuming broken bones require surgery) then we dont really have a higher than average number of foot injuries.

    I admit its not a perfect baseline, but its better than nothing, which is what most people are basing their opinion on so far.

    off the top of my head, I'm thinking we've had in the neighborhood of 6-8 broken feet over the last few years.

    either that, or they aren't drinking enough milk.
