As others of mentioned he's learned something with this injury with just how much more he'll need to smart when running. Also I would think that Kyle and Co. would start moving to have more traditional pro offense elements to lessen the running attempts.
To the best of my recollection, none of his more significant injuries this season have been on designed runs. Both the concussion and knee injury were on scrambles. I highly doubt he is not going to scramble again if under pressure and he sees an opening. The designed runs have actually been pretty safe because the blocking was designed for them and he had a sense of where and how far to go before protecting himself.
