The medical staff the Green bay Packers uses needs to be evaluated closely. Recent injuries have been misdiagnosed(Jenning's abdomen as a groin), surgeries have had complication(Finley's serious infection post meniscus), careers have been derailed(Harrel's back).

Our team gets injured a lot, men miss lots of time on the field. For every Quarless success story we seem to have a Sherrod failure. Why are multiple WRs walking off directly after knee injuries? How did Nelson still have a knee ailment from his college career coming into this training camp?

I do not think this is in my head, nagging injuries and shortened careers seem very common in the Packers organization. I take great happiness in successful returns like Burnetts but losing players like Collins has been crushing.

I'd love some input from the forum, thanks.

It's widely recognized around the league that the Packers training staff does an admirable job with injuries and players' careers. It doesn't seem that way to us, because as fans we gravitate toward impatience.

But I do agree to an extent. I feel like some issues as of late are red flags and things need to be improved in that area. I also feel, however, that blaming injuries on our training staff is a joke. We, as fans, want to assign blame to reconcile our collective anger. But we're blaming the wrong people. We should be blaming the league as it is faster and bigger than ever before. Hamstrings, unfortunately, don't evolve the same way.

This post is in no way directed at the injuries, purely the healing and recovery.

I think our medical staff is pretty modern...

Dr. Mckenzie is great, we use him at UWO. Seriously, injuries happen, its no ones fault. The Easter Bunny, Santa and Mother Nature are as much to blame as our staff.

I agree with this in general. I am curious though if the Packers have considered working with any bio-mechanics expert, or where they stand in regards to it. A few of the NBA teams I work with have cutting edge bio-mechanics experts in house or contracted, and they go a long ways in terms of both preventing injuries and laying the path to a good recovery. I think we as fans of the Packers are too far disconnected from the medical process to really evaluate what they do, but this is something that piques my interest.

Do the research and you'll be surprised at how little biomechanics has to do with pain and injury.

The Phoenix Suns staff was the world leader in the field at one point I believe and their injury history is unbelievably good.

This x1000. They are incredible.

What's the initial word on Cobb?

Correct. Mark Cuban also fired the Mav's entire staff to bring in guys with this approach during this past off-season.

Gonna be a while, knees suffer serious swelling when badly injured.

So in what way does any training staff prevent Cobb's injury today?

Saying he "dodged a bullet" or "it's not as bad as it could've been" doesn't mean anything to me. That could mean "oh yeah, he tore his ACL, but at least he didn't tear his LCL and PCL too! Smile "
