A sampling of the responses from 100 NFL players surveyed by The Associated Press about injuries:
Denver Broncos defensive lineman Antonio Smith is a rarity in the NFL: He does not get injured. The Super Bowl will mark his 179th appearance in 180 games since the middle of the 2005 season, a decade of astonishingly good health in a relentlessly violent sport. Rather than crediting particularly proficient care from the four teams he's been with, Smith says he managed to suit up week after week after week thanks in large part to what he arranges on his own.
Broncos and Panthers fans are living the dream, but what about the 30 other teams sitting home on Super Bowl Sunday? Marc Sessler offers a reason for hope for every club left out in the cold.
As the Washington Redskins angle for another division title next season, fans of the team shouldn't hold their breath for a handful of big free-agent signings, per general manager Scot McCloughan.
