I think the rate of injuries and variety of injuries is perfect this year. It adds a lot to the experience of building a team and ensuring you have depth and numerous positions.

Re: I try to enjoy this game, but the injuries are ruining it for me

Years ago when I started my first franchise season I lost Alex Smith, Gore and Vernon Davis in the preseason. All for long durations. I've had injuries off since then, but it's great that they're available for the people that want to use them.

I guess everyone just wants to echo the same point, injuries happen in football. That's true. But the type of injuries we get aren't very realistic. It's either out 8+ weeks or one quarter. There's not much in between and that's where it ruins immersion for me. That and about 30 other things anyway

Not seeing this at all, I've had a wide variety of injuries, so no.

Nah, my current season I had a minor injury in a game, and after 2 games into the new season, I have 3 weeks, 5 weeks and 7 weeks left.

That is a variety to me.

My only gripe with injuries this year is that at default injury it seems like 90% of them are 5 week or longer serious injuries. Very few 1-2 game or will return soon injuries.

Like IRL, injures do often happen in statistical clusters, and I will furthermore not vouch for the overall statistical accuracy of injuries. However, I have seen plenty of injuries from 4-7 weeks, and a few longer or shorter (plus many, many "out for the game"). I will give you that I have seen few or none in in the 2- week or 10+ week category myself, though I have seen multiple players on AI teams injured for 16+ weeks on sims, so I guess it can happen (and, season or career ending injuries should be rarer than other types).

All that to say, play a couple of seasons at least before making any judgements on injuries, then tweak the sliders. I will grant EA probably does not have injuries perfect yet, but, with the objective of realism, I think it is most likely overall injury patterns need to be made more severe, not less.
