The two I found most interesting are ...

"Wind Knocked Out"
Syndrome describing a contraction of the abdominal nerve truck, the solar plexus, as a result of an abdominal contusion.

and ...

Gamekeeper's Thumb
Tear of the ulnar collateral ligament of the metacar-pophalangeal joint of the thumb.

Thanks Shilly- I liked the link. Now we know where Blazer management comes up with the medical reasons for the I.R.
Of course, those are just the "official" medical reasons. I didn't see the "real" reason for most of those "injuries" on the list: "Bruised Ego".

That's what I thought too and why I found it so interesting but I googled it ...

Usually, a fall, some how catching the thumb on the way down. When skiing, the thumb may be injured in a fall, caught in the ski pole loop - referred to as a "ski pole thumb" - the same injury._

When the thumb is pushed sideways_ away from the index finger, the ligament connection between the bones may be torn. Usually, just the ligament is torn, but a small chip of bone may be torn off as well._

Actually, the name "gamekeeper's thumb" is an old expression, referring not to a sudden injury, but to stretching this ligament out over a long time by pushing hard again and again - doing a particular thing that gamekeepers used to do by hand...

I had that happen playing basketball once. Reached out to block a pass and the ball bent my thumb way out, trearing the ligament that connects the thumb to the palm.

This one might not still be in there....

Slow and injury-prone:

Actually more of a scouting/medical term that means the behemoth-sized player has ruptured his Achilles' tendon twice and not only cannot run or jump, but also can barely walk.

But he's still the #1 ranked player in Europe right now!!! :) :) :)
