Joe Montana (major back surgery 1986, shattered elbow in January 1991 NFC title game & botched surgery took him out for 2 seasons and he lost his job)

Gale Sayers (left knee injury)

Bobby Heenan (neck injury in 1982 severely limited his ability to work matches and bump as a manager)

Joe Namath (messed up knees)

Jerry Rice (1997 season where he was dragged down by his facemask on a dirty play by Warren Sapp, tearing his ACL AND MCL. Jerry returned in record time just 15 weeks later!! Paying the eventual Super Bowl champion Broncos on MNF, Jerry ruptered his patella on a TD catch, and even though the Niners won, their season was essentially over.

Steve Young (concussions)

Bill Walton (bad knees)

Brian Pillman (if not for his ankle injury in his Hummer accident, he would of been a money player against Steve Austin, The Rock, and others during the Attitude Era)

Troy Tulowitski. Totally frustrates fantasy baseball players. Would have been guaranteed a spot in the HOF if not for all the injuries.

On the other end of the spectrum, imagine how much better Mickey Mantle would've been if he had "perfect health". This is an all-time legend who almost suffered a career-ending injury in his rookie season and was basically never the same again, especially when it came to running.

Bobby Orr. His knees gave out at 27. Guy had just come off a 135 pt season as a defenceman. PLayed 36 games over the next 3 years and was done.

There's no doubt that if he had a [highlight= rgb(248, 248, 248);]"perfect health" career, he would have beaten Ruth's
record before Aaron. Then the question would have been "Can Aaron beat Mantle's 
record.[highlight= rgb(248, 248, 248);]
