Is the new field turf injuring players?

Recommended Posts

Arik Armstead seems to think so.

Niners play at MLS again next week against the Giants.

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.

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.
