    QB Sneak

    Mahomes injured on QB sneak. It appears to be serious.

    It seems the Steelers coaches were correct for not allowing Ben to attempt QB sneaks over the years.

    very unfortunate, I've seen Tom Brady QB sneak numerous times without ever getting injured.

    The risk is always there for any number of injuries to happen to QB's on sneaks.

    I wonder if anyone has ever broken it down statistically. I would guess a QB is more apt to be injured when he drops back to pass or when he does a regular running play than he is on a sneak, but that's only a guess.

    You are probably right. At least QBs are better protected in the pocket these days. Defenders can barely touch QBs. QBS are fair game on sneaks.

    Would you want to be the coach that had your QB injured on a sneak
    Even if the odds were 1 in 2000?

    Just so he can blow a tendon throwing a pass, injury happens if it’s not one it’s something else.

    My guess is that the risk isn't that high.

    But, the downside of losing your QB is so bad that I tend to think they should be reserved for playoff games or critical times in the regular season.

    my guess is that when you walk onto the field with 300 pound dudes throwing themselves all around you, the chances of getting hurt on ANY given play is pretty decent. But, that's just me.
