This might have been discussed already. If so, my apologies. Apparently, they are giving Austin days off to protect his hamstring. I think this is a win-win here. Hopefully, Austin stays healthy and plays well, while a younger guy(s) get good reps. I would love to see him go off early in the season, and then get traded for a 2014 pick, since he most likely will not be on the team in 2014 due to his contract.


It's only a matter of time before his hammy explodes again.

It's a shame too, he worked hard (I think). Not that I am one to stir the pot with out proof normally, but he didn't seem to have these issues until he "made it" from a UDFA to full blown WR #1. Isn't there ties to PEDs and often injured players? idk I like the guy, maybe sports have just made me cyclical of players now. Maybe he is just made of glass...

As mentioned above, the principal reason for baseball injuries associated with steroid use is that the increase of muscle mass or increased speed associated with anabolic steroid use is not accompanied by a proportionate increase in strength of the tendons, ligaments and joints. On its own, gaining significant amounts of weight from steroid use in a short period of time doesn’t allow your body to adapt to such a significant increase in size. These factors increase the risk of injury dramatically.

This pitcher is repeating an explosive movement with every pitch, the hitter with every swing. Injuries will inevitably follow. Effects on younger players are even more severe.

Injuries that were rarely problems before baseball’s steroid era were now almost common: patellar tendonitis, strained rib cages (oblique strains), torn hamstrings, ruptured Achilles tendons, and torn rotator cuffs. These injuries occur when (oversized) muscles rip away from ligaments and joints that can no longer accommodate them.

Numerous strains and pulls ended Ken Caminiti’s career, and it was patellar tendonitis that ended Mark McGwire’

SHSTE, Austin doesn't have tendon or ligament problems. He has muscle problems. With the way the NFL tests for PEDS, I highly doubt he is using.

Fair enough point. Again not one to pull things out my [inappropriate/removed]. Just strange the guy literally can't run without popping a hammy.

Very simple theory here. I am no expert on physiology but is it possible that some of these athletes train too much, and their bodies and muscles are wound too tight? In Austin's case it seems he pushes it on the field and there goes the hammy. There may be no substance to what I am hypothesizing but what could the explantion(s) be? Are some of these guys too fit? Maybe he just has glass hamstrings.

Completely agree with the theory that some athletes are simply in "too good" of shape. In a physically brutal sport such as football I see nothing wrong and would actually think that most would prefer a little baby free to cushion some beatings on the body.

There is no doubt your theory has merit. Having too much muscle is always a hindrance unless you're competing in a body-building competition. Of course, the other side of it (and more likely in my opinion) is that his Quads are much stronger than his Hamstrings. This puts much more pressure on his hammys when he fires off. And the dude has massive quads so this is a possibility. And hamstrings are notoriously underdeveloped anyways. I'd like to think this isn't the case with a professional athlete, but hey, you never know.
