Sure...sure...you believe what you want to believe. Roll Eyes I guess by your definition that makes Matt Nichols injury prone too. Maybe we should look for a new QB. While we are at it, Dressler is injury prone too.
Overreaction. Nice.

Adams has a long history of injuries, going back to college. He?s injury prone.

He does? He seemed like a real standout in college, hauling in passes from Cam Newton at Auburn*, and then tested the NFL waters as a pretty raw prospect. I haven't come across any information showing he has a history of injuries dating back to college, though. His CFL injury history isn't too good, that's for sure: http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2015/06/whatever_happened_to_darvin_ad.html
 - shoulder injury in TC in 2013
 - knee injury in practice in 2014

We know his injuries since he became a Blue Bomber.

There's no mention of injuries in his NFL combine analysis: http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/darvin-adams?id=2495444

Overview

Adams is a guy who brings enough to the table to develop into a nice sub-package receiver. Possesses the height and long speed to make some plays vertically, has the mentality to make tough catches in traffic, and has the work ethic and desire to refine his route-running on short-to-intermediate patterns. Good hands and a crafty route-runner. Needs to add some weight to his frame and is susceptible to the press and doesn't have the great short-area burst to consistently get open against man coverage at this time. Adams will attract interest with his competitiveness and intangibles. Mid-round prospect.

Analysis

Strengths: Adams has pretty good speed for a taller receiver. Does a good job getting open against zone coverage. Reliable hands. Is a speed-builder who can run under the deep ball. Willing to roam the middle of the field. Hard-worker who maximizes his physical tools.

Weaknesses: Lacks bulk. Can be jammed and re-routed at the line of scrimmage. Will mis-time jumps and body catch on occasion. Doesn't possess good initial quickness and burst, doesn't eat up cushions quickly, or pose much of a threat in the open field. Run blocking technique needs some work.


*he owns a SEC Championship Game record for most receiving yards (217)

That?s 4 significant injuries going back to his college days.  Plus one he suffered in 2015 that?s listed as an upper body injury but I can?t find the specifics. That?s a pretty significant injury every year since 2013.

Edit: read the article on the previous page where he talks about his college injuries.

I consider that a long list.
