Well, many of the injuries are actually aggravated when a guy has an extreme cramp, spasm and then makes a tear while trying to walk-off...

You've got millions of dollars (much of it was ours) sitting there in athletes, staff, equipment, so why not use those resources?

I grew up before the advent, development in much of modern kinesioligy where you just manned-up and rubbed dirt on it...

With players getting so much faster, bigger and making more dramatic displays of athleticism, there's going to be adjustments all around the peripheries of the game...

And then you even guys like Hau'oli Kikaha that would never have made it this far in the NFL, much less be playing after a third ACL!!!

Many of the guys getting carted off are just cramps where they're immediately brought to the training room, probably for electrolyte treatment...

Again, you've got millions of dollars invested in professional players, support staff, and advanced amenities, why would you not be smart and maximize your investment all around?

I have no idea what the guys were carted off for I haven't seen any reports. If some have come out post them my man!

Yes I hope they're just cramps and yeah heat is mother, but there were a lot of guys getting carted of or talking with trainers.

Did reports come out saying it was cramps? I hope it is

Actually not that wierd. I have always seen the same pattern at every national team camp i have been to. I think the main thing is that defensive players tend to run a lot more and harder than the offensive players. Mainly because they always have the goal to get to the ball on every play.

Hoping it's cramps. Payton said some were cramps but again he's rarely truthful. I'm wondering which were and which weren't.

Thank you. He did not make a blanket statement they were all cramps. Let's keep fingers crossed since so many people were going down it was all cramps. Why do some people choose to be dishonest in what they say. I honestly do not get it.

There will be no official injury reports as the teams (Head Coaches) are not compelled by league rules to disclose at this time...

On the Twittersphere, many of the Saints Beat Reporters have started tweeting updates on specific players and that the cart-offs were for cramps from the heat...

Example...

Which players, and if it is just cramps SP is going to say that like he did with Anthony. If iot is an injury he is going to stay quiet or say he has a knee, etc

Looks like it might be something more than cramps with Snead. Hopefully nothing serious
