He could have been slightly over-trained. He could have actually injured it doing something else but didn't realize it or didn't realize how bad it was. Or the random factors might have just aligned and whammo.
Although this injury is typically seen as a result of overuse, calf strain can also occur suddenly if the muscle becomes over stretched for example when warm-up exercises have been missed out or are inadequate for the level of activity, causing the patient to over stretch the muscle while performing activities that require resistance against that muscle, such as running, kicking, jumping or skipping movements.

The way this particular injury is handled is extremely important in light of its high potential to re-injury......especially in a running back where recurrence can empirically be extremely troublesome.
