The National Football League's increasingly visible injury legacy has become a topic of national debate, one that threatens to cast a lasting shadow over the country's most popular, and profitable, sport. Far less attention has been paid to the physical woes of other athletes, but a review of injury filings in California suggests that professional athletes of all stripes walk away from their sports with nagging and often permanent injuries. Over the past two decades, more than 2,500 claims have been filed by former baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer players against their former teams in California's workers' compensation system.

During last week's game against the Arizona Cardinals, Rams receiver Danny Amendola attempted a diving catch. He missed, but quickly got up and walked off the field while pointing at his shoulder. First thought: broken shoulder. Later, reports were he suffered a broken collarbone. Today, we know it was much more serious. Amendola dislocated his clavicle, but in a way that few people do. Instead of popping out, the clavicle popped in and came millimeters from puncturing his trachea and aorta, which would have probably killed him. Thankfully, the Rams' medical staff quickly discovered the problem and actually put Amendola to sleep before popping the clavicle back into place.

The Kings got mixed news on the injury front Sunday, with Jarret Stoll returning to practice for the first time in more than a week while Kyle Clifford was forced to sit out after sustaining a blow to the head in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks. Clifford left the ice in the first period Saturday and did not return. The Kings did not release an update on his condition Sunday. Because Clifford's injury was to his head, he must clear a league-mandated concussion protocol before he can be cleared to return to the ice. Defenseman Matt Greene, who hasn't skated in several days, was also held off the ice Sunday with an undisclosed injury.

The 2012-13 season for the Lakers has been defined by injury. Kobe Bryant is now dealing with a bone spur in his left foot. Steve Nash is bothered by his hip and a sore hamstring. Jordan Hill was declared out for the season with a hip injury -- although he's working diligently to try to improve that timeline. Pau Gasol missed games with tendinitis in his knees, a concussion and then six weeks with a torn plantar fascia (foot). Metta World Peace just had surgery for a torn meniscus (knee)

Chris Bosh will be sidelined indefinitely because of a strained abdominal muscle, the Miami Heat announced Monday. The Heat forward had an MRI exam that confirmed the injury, suffered during the 95-86 victory over Indiana in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Sunday. Bosh will probably be replaced in the lineup by former Laker Ronny Turiaf, but filling Bosh's shoes won't be easy, according to Heat guard Dwyane Wade. "Our brother is going to go to see if he can get back out there and play with us,” Wade told the Associated Press on Sunday.
