Harvard Study Says No More Injuries In NFL This Season

Well, that's inconvenient. Just when I was ready to lay all these Texan injuries on the feet of the lockout, new practice rules and general inactivity throughout the offseason, those Harvard braniacs come along with cold, hard evidence to the contrary.

Basically, none of the causes that make sense have caused an increase in injuries because there hasn't been an increase in injuries. There's been a pretty normal amount, when compared to the past few years.

Even the severity of injuries has stayed pretty equal over the past three years. The only thing I'd quibble with is the type of injuries. I think there's been a rash of hamstring issues this season, due to the inactivity over the offseason, but if that hasn't resulted in more total injuries, maybe I'm wrong.

Which kind of sucks. Now, there's nothing to blame the recent Texans woes on besides plain old luck.

Son of a bitch.
