While it might seem like an easy job to some Sione Takitaki Jersey , being a professional athlete requires countless hours of hard work and dedication, while the risk of injury looms large. Athletes get injured. No matter how tough they seem to be, one poorly placed hit or awkward movement could leave them seriously hurt. Every off-season in the NFL sees a few players lost for the year due to injuries sustained while training or in practice. Once the regular season comes along, things don’t get much better. Some players even go through entire seasons battling an injury that they sustained earlier in the year.But there are ways of combating this. Now more than ever, teams are trying to cut down on injuries and bring players up to speed on proper technique when training as well as tackling in games. Safety is a huge concern in the NFL. Concussions being the biggest health problem in the game today, the recent discoveries on the long term effects of such an injury stress just how seriously measures against it must be taken. Most injuries require a specific amount of rehabilitation until the player can recover. They might or might not come back 100% the same but concussions can negatively affect an athlete’s well being well into their lives.Over the course of its long history, the NFL has had its share of memorable injuries. But these instances in the game’s past are not remembered for being great achievements or for giving fans great feats of skill. They’re remembered for being cringe-worthy. Once a player gets badly injured, the intense air of competition momentarily leaves the stadium. It’s no longer about who’s scoring more points or the rivalry between two teams. It instantly becomes about the players safety and the hope that they can recover with their lives intact. Sadly this is sometimes not the case and while most players manage to get back to where they were before their injury, some are haunted by theirs for their entire lives.* Warning: When videos are included, some of them are quite graphic Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , so discretion is advised. EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — After the coaching staffs for Jacksonville and Minnesota met the night before, a group of 12 trusted players from both the Jaguars and Vikings convened before the two teams took the field for their first joint practice.The goal of the gatherings could be boiled down to this: No fighting.Please.“We really don’t want to end up being on TV like some of these other things,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. “We just want to get out there and get some work done and try to get each of us better.”There’s no reason for the Jaguars and Vikings, who only play each other in the regular season every fourth year, to bring any grudges to these dual individual drills and simulated game situations.Jaguars coach Doug Marrone spent three years as an assistant coach with the New Orleans Saints, when Zimmer’s son and current Vikings linebackers coach Adam Zimmer was also on staff. Jaguars assistant offensive line coach Tony Sparano Jr . is the son of the late Vikings offensive line coach, who died suddenly of heart disease right before training camp .“I think they’re an excellent football team. They’re well-disciplined. They’re well-coached,” Marrone said, speaking of the Vikings. “Those are the type of teams you want to come and practice against.”This was Marrone’s idea Austin Seibert Jersey , proposed to Zimmer shortly after the exhibition game schedule was finalized in April with the Jaguars playing the Vikings on Saturday.Zimmer acknowledged some hesitation, citing his preference to follow training camp routine, but he agreed to include his team in an exercise that has long been common around the league. The workouts at Minnesota’s gleaming new facility will feature two teams that reached the conference championship games in January.“I figured, ‘OK, they’re a good team. Let’s go and do it,'” Zimmer said.The purpose is to break up the monotony of two-a-days and providing extra opportunities for evaluation of bottom-of-the-roster candidates. The Vikings joined the Bengals for practices two years ago in Cincinnati where Zimmer used to be the defensive coordinator, a trip that conveniently allowed him to stay at his ranch retreat in rural Kentucky.“After going against the same defense, the same schemes, the same players every day, at some point it gets a little old Trysten Hill Jersey ,” Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen said.The excitement and, thus, the intensity have ramped up for these sessions on Wednesday and Thursday. That’s why the pre-practice conversations took place about keeping the competition healthy and respectful.“I’ve done it almost every year I’ve been a head coach in this league so I’ve seen great results from that if it’s done properly,” Marrone said.The New York Jets and Washington Redskins had a multiplayer melee on Sunday spill into the crowd of fans . The Jaguars had their own scuffle to sort out, with a scrap between defensive ends Dante Fowler and Yannick Ngakoue that prompted Marrone to keep Fowler and star cornerback Jalen Ramsey home from this trip . Zimmer banished wide receiver Stefon Diggs and cornerback Xavier Rhodes from practice one day last week after their trash-talking antics angered him.The Vikings had some testy joint practices with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2003 and again in 2004, when pro wrestler Brock Lesnar made his ill-fated tryout with the Vikings as a defensive lineman and stirred up his share of shouting and shoving in scrimmages.So even the best of intentions can be cast aside in the heat of the moment when it’s, literally, as hot outside as it’ll be all season.Diggs and Thielen, for their part, were disappointed by Ramsey’s absence and the lost opportunity to test their skills against an All-Pro. The Vikings still faced plenty of challenges against the Jacksonville defense Connor McGovern Jersey , which ranked second behind the Vikings last season in fewest yards and points allowed.“We came here to work. We came here to get things done,” Diggs said. “So as far as anything extra, we’re not interested.”The first session on Wednesday came and went without any drama, as both sides intended.“This is a good team to go against, a good team to get us right and to see where we are,” Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith said afterward. “Hopefully we push each other in the right way and we’ll be seeing each other in the right game later on.”
