Football Outsiders returns to the Keeping Score column of the Sunday New York Times with this roundup of data from our huge injury database. Included: offensive injuries are more important than defensive ones; injuries to running backs generally don't hurt a team's running game at all; older players don't actually get injured more often; and more.
