Check out this amazing and eye opening article about JT and the insane amount of pain he dealt with on a day to day basis. We really have no idea of the magnitude of what goes on behind the scenes.
As Americat. We have no earthly idea.
Man, that's hard to read. You definitely have to be crazy to have the threshold and desire to endure the terrible pains of the NFL. I'd be curious to ask some of our players what the culture around our team relating to injuries is like. Obviously, not being paid to play likely has a big effect. Also, some big programs have banned Toradol due to the mentioned risk factors. Does anyone know if our team doctors give the players Toradol injections?
Lord knows what all those painkilling injections and epidurals did to his liver and kidneys. Dude will not live a long life, and that says something for someone who was probably the best conditioned player on the field most Sundays.

All I can say is WOW
shots in the foot SUCK
I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I am all out of bubble gum.
I sympathize with the pain JT was/is dealing with, but honestly it is hard for me to feel that bad when you get paid as much money to do so. Some of the highest paying jobs in the world are the riskiest and football is no different. If someone were to offer me millions of dollars to play football with the side effects of pain and whatnot, I would sign up immediately.

No kidding......cut my foot once and had to have eight shots. Felt the first five and they hurt like hell. I bent the bed rail as I screamed into a pillow and twisted the rail. To this day I tell people that is the absolute worst pain I have ever endured. I have a high tolerance for pain and that brought me down many levels.
Fomerly known as Garnet&BlackAttack.
09...I don't have a clue but I would be stunned if Toradol is used very often in our program, if at all.There are a ton of other options Given in doses below 50 mg, there are very, very few side effects. I suspect that this is where Jason may have gotten into trouble but the trainer and management play a huge part in this as well. His tolerance level had to be huge combined with any other pain meds he was taking just to get through the day, before practice or a game. Since he stated that he rarely practiced, I would speculate that they loaded him up on game day to levels that would drop an elephant and just rolled the dice. This truly is the darkside of professional sports imo.
Jason Taylor will always be one of my favorite players
