Bashaud Breeland

It may be old news but I just seen where Bashaud Breeland has a hamstring injury. It's really unbelievable how many of our players get this. He hasn't been here 2 wks and he's listed on the injury list. -;(

I was actually wondering the same thing.  The Packers always have a number of guys nursing hamstrings and missing time because of it.  Maybe it just seems like it because of following them closer than other teams.  Anyone got any stats or numbers regarding this issue?

It's not just Green Bay guys...................this is an NFL epidemic, and the most likely players to deal with it ar WR's and DB's.

ESPN injury analyst Stephania Bell says the NFL medical community has intensely studied the injury that has no clear-cut blueprint. There are certain trends, she says. Rookies transitioning from a shorter college season and unique pre-draft schedule might be susceptible. The injury lurks in the preseason as veterans come off summer breaks and readapt to an NFL practice.

But not all cases are the same, she adds, and even a minor flare-up can worsen if a player pushes too early. Teams have copious data but can't prevent these.

"Everybody’s aware this is a problem, and nobody out there has a magic formula," Bell said.

The emboldened sentence is likely why Breeland has had this happen. He's been out of football for quite a while, and may have just pushed himself a little too hard to impress his new team.
