In his words, “It’s been four years of this pain to healthy and pain to healthy and pain to healthy again and I’m choosing to step away because I need to recover.”
Achilles tendon (Calcaneus Tendon) injuries do not occur with the frequency of ACL injuries, but they are more devastating in terms of recovery and performance for NFL players.

What do NFL HOF quarterback Jim Kelly, Former Bills NFL center Eric Wood, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr., Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy and Bills Center Russell Bodine have in common?

Jack Doyle Tight End for the Indianapolis Colts has more than playing for the same team in common with his quarterback Andrew Luck. Both players now have the experience of suffering a serious injury to their kidney following a hit during a game in their careers. Doyle spent Sunday night in the hospital after needing a procedure to treat a lacerated kidney.
By now everyone has heard of the dilemma at the Kansas City Chiefs running back position. In February, Kareem Hunt was involved in an altercation in a Cleveland hotel where he allegedly assaulted a 19-year old girl.
Marcus Mariota sustained a re-injury to his ulnar nerve in his throwing arm on Sunday. This occurred when he fell onto the elbow. Basically, he experienced a contusion to the ulnar nerve, funny bone, which resulted in recurrence of the numbness and tingling in his throwing arm.
Matt Bryant – Atlanta Falcons Kicker, Charles Clay – Buffalo Bills Tight End, Leonard Fournette – Jacksonville Jaguars Running Back lead a long list of NFL players who are or have battled hamstring issues during their career.

Jay Ajayi, Jerick McKinnon, Jimmy Garoppolo, Keanu Neal, Derrius Guice, William Hayes, and Jeremy Hill, headline the list of NFL feature players who have been bitten by the ACL injury bug that has driven football fans crazy. Jay Ajayi became the 39th reported ACL injury since March 2018.
