    If horse riding counts, I was knocked spark out in a fall, and cracked my pelvis. Yes, I did get back on a horse again, once I could sit down without wincing. I know someone whose cousin was killed by a baseball hitting his head when watching a game.

    Tore the interstitial cartilage in my chest taking a hit in lacrosse my senior year of college.  Took six years before cold, damp weather didn't make me ache severely.  I also had a concussion, pinched nerve in my neck, tendonitis in both knees, shin splints, and a severe bruise in a shoulder muscle when a guy broke a stick over my shoulder taking a shot.  He, btw, landed on his back and broke his stick!

    A broken leg and later spinal injury, playing football back in the day. Needless to say, my sporting days were over until I reached college and played handball and on the tennis team for a couple of years. It did keep me out of a nasty war in which I lost friends and self respect, because Uncle Sam refused to take a cripple with a six inch scar on his spine. I cussed for years after that until I realized that I was meant to go on and be a teacher of the handicapped for twenty-five years. I guess things do work out for the best. It seems that some injuries make a better person out of you in the long run.

    While playing football in a local league on what can only be described as the worst pitch in the world I turned with the ball and due to the small gradient I dislocated my knee, thankfully it popped back it on its own after a minute or two.
    Another one was when out mountain biking on my own I went over the handle bars on a rocky terrain only to get up and find a 4 inch gash down my left shine, nearly to the bone, was able to cycle the short distance home but I don't go out now without my mobile just in case.
