Akeem Auguste is injury prone .. Frequent hamstring tweaks, groin pulls, ankle sprains, etc

I wouldn't put Connor Shaw's fracture(s) in that category. His injuries are typically a result of his style of play.

his style of play leaves him injury prone, IMO but he, himself, isn't

Connor has taken a beating this year. He's a beast and still can play with minor injuries.

Connor and Akeem are both injury prone. Connor's frame is just so small that when he gets hit good one time its devastating. He seems to get "hurt" or shook up about 2-3 times a game.

It's not a lack of toughness. That's for sure. He is tough as hell. He is just small. And his body can't take huge hits every other play.

I don't think its fair to say he is injury prone though. The shoulder fracture would've happened to a lot of players. He was on the ground with no way to protect himself. Heck, even Quarles has a similar injury.

I'm not sure how he fractured the foot though. Did that ever get explained?

This and many other reasons are why coaches should not talk about week to week injuries.

How is Connor "small"? He's listed at 6'1 207 lbs. Aaron Murray weighs in at a whopping 6'1 210, Johnny Manziel at 6'1 200 lbs and A.J. McCaron at 6'4 210. He's going to get banged up because of the type of quarterback he is, and that's all there is to it.

Tell me this. How many weeks has Connor Shaw been the stater? And how many weeks is there some sort of issue with his health? Regardless if he plays or not. Im not bashing a kid that is, what, 14-2 or something like that? Im simply stating that he is hurt or not 100% pretty much every week.

A bunch of people bashed me when I opened a thread called "Akeem's Injury Bug" and we see what has happened since.

Its kinda like saying that Shon Carson is injury prone....and then people on here say that I'm calling him "soft". Its just ignorant

Wouldn't put Shaw in the injury prone category. His play is pretty consistent week to week despite whatever he deals with every week. I remember cringing every time Blake got hit because he always seemed to get up really slowly every time he got hit. I'm sure a lot of fans on here remember. Blake was fragile.

Why is everyone seeming insulted if Shaw is injury prone...he's hurt a lot. You can't really ignore that. It may be his size or style of play but the fact is almost every other week there seems to be a question regarding his health.

The foot injury occurred during the UT game and it's not going away until after the season when he can rest it. Why call him out on it? He still suits up every week and plays his butt off. It's not like he has Spiller's turf toe. Foot injuries are nagging and painful.

Connor is of the very toughest football player's I've ever witnessed play for the Gamecocks. Football is a vicious game at this level of ball. Nagging, lingering injuries are commonplace for most players at this point of the season. Try running into a brick wall and then being blindsided by a truck 10 times every Saturday for like 9-10 Saturdays in a row and get back to us on how well you maintain your health through all that.
