Injuries

Not sure if anyone is seeing the same thing, but the amount and frequency of injuries looks really high to me this season. After 2 games my team has 13 injuries, 6 of them being 'questionable' or worse. That's about 30% injuries out of my 46 man playing roster...seems very high. I can't really find any actual NFL injury rates, but one article I read dated in 2010 says there were 3.2 injuries per team per week on average the previous year, my injury rate is double that amount if that was accurate.

Nothing has changed on the injury front, I was actually thinking the injuries seemed low for my team until this thread started - still I've only got 4 questionables. Any other teams experiences higher/lower than normal injuries?

Seems normal to me. Some guys are just injury prone. I've left a few talented guys go just because of that.

Good to know.

This league has less big plays. To me that could increase long drives, in terms of snaps, or/ also fatigue could come in to play here. To me those are indirect effects that could slightly skew numbers.

Just a contribution to the numbers... After last game: 3 Questionable (3, 4, 6 weeks), 6 Probable (1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5 weeks)
