This list is just off the top of my head, other people should contribute to it, or maybe I have people badly misclassified.
Injury Prone QBs that got hurt:
Vick, Big Ben, RG3? (due to running for RG3)
Injury Prone QBs that escaped:
Romo, Cam/Luck/Wilson? - not really injury prone, but they run a lot.
Injury Prone RBs that got hurt:
Forte, Mathews, DMC, Beanie Wells, Bradshaw, Murray, FJax, McGahee, Starks, Donald Brown, JStew
Injury Prone RBs that escaped:
Gore, Greene, Reggie Bush, Spiller? Considered injury prone at one time, but not really coming into this year.
Kevin Smith - but only cause he lost his job. I'm thinking more about starters here.
Injury Prone WRs that got hurt:
Harvin, Amendola, Maclin (only 1 game though)
Injury Prone WRs that escaped:
Andre Johnson, Denarious Moore, Marques Colston, Miles Austin, Sidney Rice
Injury Prone TEs that got hurt
Injury Prone TEs that escaped
Preliminary data from this one year sample suggest maybe we should worry about injury-proneness for RBs, but not so much for other positions. Except count on Vick to get hurt.
Do other people see the same thing as I do? Or is my off the top of my head memory leading to a very biased results?
NonInjury Prone RBs that got hurt:
McCoy, MJD, Benson
NonInjury Prone RBs that didn't get hurt:
Foster, Rice, Chris Johnson, Lynch, Peterson, Charles, SJax, Richardson, Turner, Sproles, BJGE, Ridley, Martin, Leshoure, Morris
[I don't consider Peterson and Charles injury prone outside of the question of whether they were actually recovered from the ACL tear or not]
