What are sports injury archives?

The Disabled List tries to take an sports injury a day and explain it. What causes it? How do you get it? How do you treat? When will you recover? We scan the daily newsfeeds, pick out an interesting story and then create an entry to discuss it. This works well, but there needs to be a way to track all the sports injuries that come up.

What we’re going to attempt to do is grab the headlines from the last 24 hours or so and note the injuries. Hopefully, this will help people in their research and provide a database of information for people to use.

Tim Dlulane fractures neck and career might be over

I’ll admit I don’t know much about professional rugby, but a neck fracture sounds like a horrible injury to happen during play. There are many scares during American football with neck injuries, but nothing is usually major.
