The NFL has had its fair share of injuries over the years, but injuries to its players are rarely as bad as they were during the early part of the 20th century.
The injury rate is still pretty low today, which is a good thing for the league, as it keeps players from getting hurt.
However, that means injuries to the players who aren’t hurt, like the likes of the Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr., can get a little out of control.
The Giants’ Eli Manning is a prime example of a player who’s had multiple concussions and has been a major concern to the league in recent years.
After playing a total of five seasons in New York, Manning signed a five-year extension worth a reported $100 million, and he’s never been a player to miss a game before.
However if the league were to take another hit, he might not be the player he once was.
In 2009, when Manning and the Giants won the Super Bowl, he suffered a concussion.
That year, the league ruled that the Giants were responsible for all the concussion-related fines for the team.
The NFLPA sued, and the case was thrown out because the NFL had already fined the Giants for not using a helmet in the playoffs.
The judge ruled that Manning should have been suspended for that game, because he had already missed the previous three games and he had been fined for missing two of them, but he didn’t get suspended.
The Giants appealed that ruling, and they were reinstated.
That meant Manning was fined $60,000 in the fourth quarter of the game against the Patriots.
It was the second concussion-like penalty the Giants had been assessed for in the past decade.
Manning’s NFL career has been plagued by multiple concussive hits, concussions, concussed players, and concussed coaches.
This past year, he had to leave the field with a concussion during a game against Pittsburgh and was hospitalized for four days, where he eventually recovered and returned to play.
He was able to return to the field the next day.
However during the offseason, Manning suffered a second concussion, and while he was able, he was still unable to play again.
In 2013, he missed three games, and during that time, he took his health very seriously.
He played through the illness, but then suffered another concussion and was unable to return until the first week of the 2016 season.
He missed a total on nine games that season, and missed three of them in the first half, because of the injury.
He returned for the third quarter of his final game in December of that year and was able the rest of the year.
This year, Manning was unable, and did not return, to play a game, so he was suspended for two games, one for a non-contact injury, and one for an incomplete pass.
He went back out in the preseason, but did not play again until the playoffs, which he missed because of his concussion.
This past year Manning also had a knee injury that was not properly diagnosed and treated.
In May, the New York Times reported that Manning had a partial meniscus tear in his left knee, which required surgery.
Doctors at the team’s medical facility in Indianapolis were concerned about his recovery, so the team announced in September that Manning would miss the remainder of the regular season.
The NFLPA said in a statement that the suspension was justified because the league had already made a total payment to the Giants in the form of fines for a variety of concussions Manning had already incurred.
It said that Manning’s actions “created an environment of fear and mistrust among the players, who feared the ramifications of getting hurt again.”
The league’s stance on the issue is clear: If a player is found to have a concussion, it should be addressed immediately, not allowed to continue to play and be rewarded with a fine.
As it turns out, Manning is still a major problem to the NFL in the modern age, and it’s not even his fault that the NFLPA is filing a lawsuit.
That lawsuit comes after the league paid out a total $2 million to injured players.
In 2017 alone, the NFL made $1.7 billion on the fines it collected from players, according to the New Jersey State Journal.
