Avoiding Major Training Camp Injuries Would Signal a New Year With Better Karma – John Eisenberg
Many players, especially veterans, received more time off during the spring season of OTA and minicamp practices, easing the load their bodies must endure.
Also, the Ravens are settling in with Steve Saunders, their head strength and conditioning coach, whose program, entering its second year, features cutting-edge techniques and sports science designed to limit injuries. Flacco and Terrell Suggs have raved about Saunders’ impact.
Injuries will still occur, no doubt – they’re inevitable in such a rugged game, and sometimes a knee gives out on the practice field during a non-contact drill. Injuries are up across the league.
But for what it’s worth, the Ravens sailed through their spring practices without any major subtractions this year.
