Injuries aren't always caused by lifting weights. I'm not very old, but I do know that you can lift as much as you want as long as you're doing it correctly and stretching enough to keep flexibility and not "overbulking." These guys are working all week long all day long so their bodies are under tremendous stress and work so injuries are going to be more abundant than in the season. I agree that most of the injuries are just minor and will probably be fine once the season rolls around. I just wonder when they're getting injured...if it's later in the day after the first practice then they might not be stretching and loosening up enough after resting and getting tight.
