Agree with voy vey. Empirically the number of injuries for Yale this year is above the norm. The Yale Harvard preview on the Yale football website indicated "Yale has had 23 different starters on offense and 18 on defense (41 overall)" because of injuries. Depth is not the cause of Yale's problems - depth became an issue because of the need to go 3 or 4 deep all too frequently. In the past two years Yale had to rely on the talents of db Dale Harris to fill in at rb. Without finding a remedy to the injury problem does anyone feel confident about the rb situation next year with just Lamar and Salter - without Harris who will have graduated. Reno will have to find at least two more capable rbs who can start when needed.
Having watched Yale on grass for decades (no pun intended) I can't recall a set of seasons when injuries seemed so concentrated and when there was so much uncertainty over who would be the starters each week.
The cause or causes for the injury issue is a mystery but I will repeat my suggestion that the AD office hire a consultant to do a complete assessment to determine whether there are ways to reduce the injuries.

(I posted this under another thread, but it's pertinent to this discussion)
Yale's new strength/conditioning program is terrible. Most players are now heavier, slower, and weaker as the lifting regiment is poorly designed (despite accolades to the contrary). The only players showing improvement are those who were not avid lifters to begin with. This is a big reason injuries have been such a problem.
