It seems like athletes everywhere are recovering from injuries faster and faster, especially in the NFL. Ray Lewis came back from a torn triceps muscle in less than three months after he was expected to miss the remainder of the season. Before that, Adrian Peterson returned from a torn ACL and MCL in just nine months to rush for the second-most yards in a single season in league history. So, in a sense, we’ve become accustomed to these super speedy recoveries. However, they’re actually creating problems for other athletes trying to repeat these incredible occurrences.
