I have a 13 yr old son who plays school football and park baseball. He is in the 8th grade but has started practicing for 9th grade football at Pelham HS. He has had some issues...he had a broken finger and mallet finger (2 diff fingers) this past football season, he has a ganglion cyst in his left knee we just found during weight training, and now he is still limping after hurting his hip 4 days ago in a scrimmage football game. Is this normal? He has gotten much taller in the last year and is still growing. Could that be contributing to his increased injuries? I'm sure they are playing rougher as well...should I be concerned or is it all part of playing ball? Thanks.
