In brief: Preseason condition

I love football! unfortunately there are no exercises, braces, dietary supplements that can prevent injury in this game.
Without a doubt the better condition you are in at the beginning and throughout the season will be helpful to get out of your stance, run, cut, make your play while hopefully avoiding injury. Aerobics, strength and flexibility are all important in injury prevention.

Avoid progressing too much too quickly. Stay well hydrated. Avoid playing when tired
