Is the new field turf injuring players?

Does that explain the injuries happening all over the league? 

Maybe we can use Occam's razor here and an unprecedented offseason might explain the uptick

To be fair, 3 knee injuries for one team in a half does seem a little alarming.

Jets ownership can’t even get the turf in the stadium right. 

How is it 2020 and they still can’t figure out how to make a grass field work?

Instead they put in this “special” turf with pipes under it to melt any snow.  As if this team will ever play a home game in January.

He's a 49er.  You can blame Gase for a lot, but not this.

You're the one who reminds us constantly how the Jets are the most injured team in the NFL. You use it as an excuse. I provide a reason.

The thought crossed my mind as well, but then I saw what was going on around the rest of the league and it seems that soft tissue and joint issues are rampant today.  No preseason plus a week of hitting is taking its toll.

Jets had this problem last year, also. Miami players are on record hating his guts. If Gase isn't fired, a full-scale locker room revolt is coming. And soon.

It would be hysterical if the whole team took the covid opt-out this Friday.

IDK, I get that injuries are up this year, which is something that I also predicted on this board. But it's hard to ignore that players and coaches were outwardly complaining about the condition of the field.

“That’s as many knee injuries and ankle stuff, and people getting caught on the turf as I’ve ever been a part of,” Shanahan said after the game. “From what I saw, the other team did, too. I know our players talked about it the entire game, just how sticky the turf was. … It was something our guys were concerned about right away, and the results definitely made that a lot stronger.

"I think the turf was pretty thick," Armstead said. "Guys seemed to be getting stuck in the ground more regularly. A bunch of guys went down, wasn’t real fun to be a part of."

Hopefully something can be done about it.
