Different sports so your example can get lost. Try naming some injury prone NFL examples. Simply put... there aren't many of them because they either play football or not. NFL careers are generally too short in order for them to recover over and over. 16 games verses 82 or 162 is huge with carrying the injury-prone label.
To roll with infantrycak's definition, Owen Daniels would best fit with 3 blown ACLs. Problem is... only one has kept him down in the NFL. The other two were from his college days (or is it vice-versa?) but they don't apply because he didn't miss any NFL games. Eh. I think it's weak.
Again, the injury-prone label does not belong in football. Those are the breaks.
