He's still growing at 21 and needs to add strength, playing in a league primarily against grown men. IMO the injuries are a bit of a concern, but nothing to get overly worried about at this point.
I agree, but I would say that, rather than thinking he's injury-prone, the simple fact that he's missed large chunks of time at his age might be a bit of a concern. Only time will tell if it will have a long-term effect, though, so we'll have to wait and see.
