pretty impressive, esp. considering the number of other injuries we have had.

Pretty much what I'd expect except for the differences in Guard, Tackle, and Center.  I guess I could see tackles being a little less as they are less likely to pull.  But to have such a huge difference between Guard and Center is surprising.

I wonder if it has something to do with the Center's body posture out of the snap?

 

Ref WR's being so high, not surprising.  I once knew an ex NFL receiver decades ago here in CLT, who was probably a genius with brain cells to spare, that I heard recently died from devastating dementia, probably concussion related.
