Default Re: Matt Schaub - Injury Prone

They're all football players and they all get pounded.

That said, it's ridiculous to blast the observation that, in point of fact, Matt Schaub will have missed 16 games in the past 5 seasons by the end of this one.
"Injury prone", no.

Prone to putting himself in positions that might increase the chance of injury? Perhaps.

Earlier in his Texans career, he tended to hold on to the ball too long. I remember some of those Haynesworth hits that just confused me why he didn't get rid of the ball like other QBs do.

I think this injury, though, was just a victim of circumstance. Run that play 20 times and 19 of them he's fine.
