Question: Two players both miss 60 games over 6 years. Are they both equally injury prone?

Answer: You don't know, that's not enough information.


Player A plays for 6 years and misses about 10 games a year with minor injuries like pulled muscles and sprains.

Player B plays for 6 years and misses 30 games twice, once for a broken wrist once for a sports hernia. In total he misses 60 games over 6 years.

One of those guys shows a trend of injuries, one of them does not.
