In brief: Many!
Major tears of cruciate ligaments in the knees, rotator cuff tears, fracturing a large bone, damaging a slpeen (rupture), herniating a disc, tearing your achilles'.
.....This list is endless! the most tragic problems are not created by on-field injuries, but discovering a condition like hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or other disease unrelated to sports, but could be life-threatening to the athlete.
