BUT, to suggest that since he hasn't been injured before that he won't get injured in the future is silly. The average player is much bigger and faster in the NFL than in college, similar to how the college players on average where bigger and faster than the high school players.

I hope he stays healthy, but a 6'2" 245+ lbs line-backer clobbering him and knocking him out for a while is a realistic concern.
Please show me where I said he would never get hurt?

I was simply replying to someone who said they have concerns about previous injuries and I mentioned he hasn't missed a game in 7 years. Could he get hurt in his first practice, sure he could. But my point was that he hasn't been injured and just because he's small doesn't automatically make him an overt injury risk candidate.
