Does the hit stick increase chances of injury?

I remember hearing that it didn't(presumably to avoid bad press with all of that "OH MY GOD VIDEO GAMES ARE VIOLENT" crowd) increase chances of injury, just of fumble. But then I see a guy say he broke a guys jaw with the hit stick. I don't know if that's just coincidence, or not. So anyways, is there official word on whether the hit stick increases chance of injury?

Coincidence.

I believe it's an NFLPA licensing issue. No increase in injuries from hit stick, and increase in fumbles is minimal.

Ah. You think it's just a cosmetic thing I take it? I assume it has no other real repercussions.

It does have some impact on the gameplay, but it's mostly cosmetic.

i sure hope that it does something along the lines of increasing injuries. madden needs more injuries during gameplay imo anyway.

I injured Laveranues Coles with Roy Williams using the hit stick. I also got injured from a missed tackle you can read about it in the other hit stick thread.
