Football is a dangerous sport. Everybody knows it but that doesn’t stop a lot of people from playing it or watching it. The NFL has been trying to make strides to make football less dangerous but there are some things that just can’t be avoided. One of those things is broken bones, especially legs. The NFL right now is mainly concerned with protecting the head of football players which I believe is a good thing, but there are other parts of the player that need to be protected too.
Broken legs are not that uncommon in the NFL. They actually happen quite often. If you think about it, the legs, specifically lower leg, and arms are the most vulnerable part of a player to get injured. Hopefully that after the NFL finds a way to completely protect the head of a player, they will move on to protecting the legs and arms of the players. I don’t know how they will do it since players arms and legs need to be mobile and move around but with the technology we have today I’m sure they will figure out a way to do it.
