What Is The Definition Of A Non-Contact Injury In Football?
1. This is term used for when a player sustains an injury, but it is not as a result of being hit by an opponent, teammate or object on the field. When a player sustains a non-contact injury, they tend to be running or standing by themselves and then they will fall to the ground due to an injury to their body, usually their lower body.
Some common non-contact injuries are ACL tears, MCL tears and pulled muscles, such as the hamstring.
