    Today I’ve written about broken legs, torn Achilles tendons, and rugby stiff arms, but the most painful image of all is probably this one.  It features Tom Brady trying to get a measly high-five from teammate Julian Edelman and being left hanging.

    Here’s another reminder that it isn’t just the athletes who risk injury out on the field.   The people in ancillary positions, like the team photographers, also put their tendons on the line each and every week of the NFL season.
