Keep in mind, these numbers are also from 2010 and are based off of student athletes self-reporting. This chart proves that student athletes that are involved with marquee sports, such as basketball or football, are not the only athletes being overworked in collegiate
1 means that the call was right, and 5 means that the call was wrong. The umpires will get this through a headset and then make the second call on the play.

The Packers are one of the teams that haven’t had that many problems with the injury bug this year, but others have really felt the injury bug. For instance, the San Diego Chargers have been hit by the injury bug incredibly hard. Today they played with 3/5 of their starting offensive line and a number of other injury problems effected their game today.
