Carl Prine looks at NFL injuries in this incredibly detailed research report from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Seriously intricate work here, looking at how often players get injured, what kinds of injuries they face, and which kinds of players get injured most often. (It turns out the answer is defensive back -- a cornerback is 30 percent more likely than a quarterback to get injured during a season.)
