Ok all of you ex or current athletes can you answer this?
My thinking is that had he played in the pre-season, granted the fact that he went through a rigorous training camp, he would have came out stronger, more conditioned and his ankles may have been more accustomed to the strain of the game.
Do you think he still would have gotten injured? Would he have gotten injured earlier?
I think that if he played, he wouldn't have came out flat in Arizona... and would have been in better game condition.
I'm not saying he got hurt because he didn't play in the pre-season, just wondering if you guys think it would have made a difference one way or another
