It's easy to say these are freak injuries and that the injuries are not to the same part of the body, etc, etc..... I'd say anybody looking from the outside in would tell you there is a lot of risk associated with all three guys.
Yeah, I don't think that it is unreasonable to factor in durability when analyzing the success of a player/draft pick. Carter Murray and Lee are concerns at this point, but they have not been around long enough to be considered fully injury prone, Miles on the other hand, looks to be chronically lame in his prime.
