Many times I have been hurt and thought nothing of it. A little tweak here in your hamstring or an awkward twinge as you land and you just hope that it’s nothing.
You are too scared to want to know if it is something serious. You don’t want to risk being pulled out of the game or have to rest for weeks for the injury to heal.

You Just Jammed Your Finger
When I played football in HS, I had this exact thing happen to me. It was my senior year, I transferred to a new school just to play football and the second game I injured my finger pretty badly.
I thought to myself, oh this is a serious jam, I’m okay! When I finally took my glove off at the end of the game, the pain and swelling flooded in.
Again, I thought well it would go away in a few days. But it didn’t. I decided to get an x-ray and found out I broke my finger.
It's Not an Achilles Tear
During my last year as a professional. I started with some aching Achilles pain from the previous season. I thought everything was ok and that I just had a very long season.
I started feeling pain immediately in my Achilles when sprinting again, like during the end of my season. I knew this couldn’t be right. I got it worked on continuously; some said it most likely isn’t a tear. Some said it was.
I knew my body just didn’t feel right though. I went to get it checked out, and I had a 6cm tear. I sat out almost two months, but it could have been worse if I decided to keep training through it.
