I would say it depends on the intensity, frequency, and skill involved in any particular sport. Some sports that could result in a greater degree of injury that come to my mind are football, rugby, hockey, combat sports such as martial arts, and extreme sports. Anything high impact will generally result in frequent injury. Injury also depends on the fitness level of the individual and nutritional diligence.
Kick boxing ! The theme of the sport is seriously injure the opponent , possibly even break his legs !
There are more injuries in the world caused by soccer than any other sport. I'd have to agree that it is a very physically demanding sport in which puts your body under a lot of tension, muscularly wise considering you are playing very physical and running around 7 miles a game. The 7 miles you run during a game also puts a huge burden on your joints, tendons, and ligaments.
But realistically the reason that Soccer has more injuries than any other sport is because it's the most widely played sport in the world.

While it is famous worldwide, soccer is low in the ranks of favorite televised sporting events by most. Why? Should soccer get more American publicity?

Is Baseball a dying sport?I think yes. World Series ratings are down by 65% in the last 25 years. Same goes for the All Star Game. Fox had its worst year in ratings for their game of the week in 2012 (averaged a 2 share for 24 games). Don't let the local TV deals or fantasy leagues fool you.
