Bryant started off his first two seasons by being placed on IR and missing 5 games. Even though he has suffered injuries since then he has found a way to stay on the field in the last 2 seasons. His fractured fingers, back spasms and hamstring pulls have not been able to keep him from posting monster games in 2012 and 2013.
Between 2007 - 2010 Gore missed 10 games due to injury. Most of the injuries between 2007 - 2009 were due to sprains to his righ ankle. In 2010 he fractured his right hip and was placed on IR. Gore is one of the older running backs who will start in 2014, however he is one of the more durable players at that position as he has not missed a game since 2010.
The 2009 number one overall pick of the draft had very rough rookie and sophomore years in the NFL. He missed 19 games through injury in his first 2 seasons. He suffered injuries to his knee (dislocated patella) and both shoulders and was placed on IR in both years. The knee and shoulders all required surgery. He has not missed a game since 2011 and is a top QB prospect in 2014
It took Thomas 5 seasons in the NFL before he was able to maintain his health for the full stretch.
