Stopping HGH use doesn't just all of a sudden make you susceptible to injury. I think it has more to do with a Thursday night game than anything else. I've been saying for awhile that these Thursday night games have led to some horrendous injuries, guys just can't recover in time and injuries become more likely. If the NFL was truly looking out for the health of their players and not just their own bottom line, they'd get rid of the Thursday games for good, maybe have some Saturday games but nothing sooner than that.
