How sports science has helped the Vikings be one of the NFL’s healthiest teams

I’d like to preface this by saying jinxes don’t exist. They aren’t real. They aren’t a thing. Got it?

With that out of the way, a simple observation: the Vikings have been one of the healthiest teams in the NFL in 2022, and it’s a big reason why they’re off to an incredible 5-1 start under Kevin O’Connell.

Because of the physical nature of football, injuries are a part of every season in this league. They seem to be hitting especially hard this year, and Week 7 saw some devastating losses across the league. Breece Hall, Alijah Vera-Tucker, and J.C. Jackson all saw their seasons come to an end with major injuries, while Mike Williams, D.K. Metcalf, Evan Neal, and a few others will miss some time.
