Calf problems?

In today’s press conference the manager says Jack and Barker have calf problems. We seem to get a lot of injuries described as calf problems. Is this just a term the manager uses to cover any knocks and niggles that keep players out or are the players all getting the same injury?

So early on in the game - as per Saturday - would you not have to look at the individual's warm up routine and ask questions of them ??

Did Jack and Barker fully warm themselves up and ensure their muscles were lose??

Pulling up in the first half should not be happening if warm up done properly.

Only if it happened in other games.
It’s not the amount of players getting injuries in one game that’s the problem.
It’s if three players got injured in warm ups, early games in short succession that’d, for me, would indicate a training or warm up issue.

Nah for me very easy and understandable reasons

barker - sprinters are always prone to regular muscle injuries

jack - after recent covid lay-off he’s played a lot of football

Barker was holding the back of his thigh unless his calf has moved

Both players have been rather burdened by injuries down the years

The calf is probably one of the most used muscles for footballers so it's natural that you'll see more problems with the most used muscles?? I dont get what the op is suggesting? A problem with our training regime that targets our players' calf muscles?
