Sorry to play the fact check police, but, here we go:
1) Before Battle's injury last season, he played in more than 40+ consecutive games. The "always injured" label is the most naive and untelligent label given to him by the masses on the board. It is an urban legend.
2) Battle has sat out a fair amount of practices in the past, but shows up for game time. The same pattern of missed practices can be said for many other players around the league, and yet Battle is seemingly the only one pointed out.
3) Battle did not injure his leg in 2008. I believe 90% of the board still thinks he had a knee injury. It was his foot. His legs are reportedly sound right now.
4) Battle led the 49ers in receptions before his injury in 2008....as a backup.
Personal statement: Even if you do not like a certain player, at least be fair in your statements about said player. Inaccurate statements either show bias, or a serious lack of knowledge. End the urban legends.
I think my comment was a hyperbole but (LOL) how many of those 40 games did we win?
