    Julius Jones, best I remember in 95 or 93, Emmitt Smith replied, that he thought he was done in NFL because he kept having hamstring pulls, etc. He went out and got a special trainer for his legs. We all know the rest of the story, Emmitt broke history.

    Maybe you need to go out and get that special trainer too Julius!!!!!!!!!

    I did not know that trainers could prevent sprained ankles and broken shoulders too. Wow!

    Oh yeah Emmitt broke his shoulder too.

    Emmitt separated his shoulder.

    I remember when Emmitt got his special trainer. He had pulled his hammy in the Saints game on MNF and wasn't able to dominate in the playoffs. Dallas signed Blair Thomas as insurance for the playoffs. He came back big in 95 after working with the trainer.

    Roy Williams broke Emmitt's shoulder blade on his first trip back to BigD as a Cardinal.

    Emmitt started going to a chriopractor during the season he was having all the injuries. Once he started going he stopped getting injured as often and stayed healthier. There was a long article in the paper when he broke the record telling about he could not have done it without his chiropractor.

    I don't remember Emmitt playing for the Cardinals. I am pretty sure that was just a made up story or some hoax shown on TV just like the moon landing. :D

    Emmitt had 1 carry for -3 yards in his first game back from that broken shoulder against the Bears that year.

    His two injuries were the broken shoulder blade on a freak hit; and getting rolled up from behind and injuring his ankle. Pulled muscles have not been a problem for him.

    JuJo has to actually be on the field running to get a pulled muscle and the last 2 seasons he has a pretty decent complete 1 season stat sheet.
