I don't think you read that right. The broken jaw hindered his growth in his senior year, so he still has more to grow, i.e. if he didn't break his jaw he'd be bigger and stronger.
Is this point about his physical growth?
A broken jaw means he could not eat. No food; no growth.
A broken wrist means less weight lifting. Less weight lifting; less strength.
I guess it makes sense, but dang at first glance it sure sounds strange.
