Injuries are no stranger to football, and the more aggressive athletes are, the more prone they are to picking up a nagging wound that will cost them some time to recover.
When it comes to injuries there's the good (injures a player can walk off and return), the bad (injuries that might make a player need to be subbed off), and the ugly (injuries that might cause them to miss a game or even several to recover).
