Fingers are a constant problem breaks, dislocations or just plain sore.
Right now I'm in pretty good health bar a lingering knee problem as well as the usual overall soreness.

It all depends on how you manage them but BJJ is highly addictive and its not easy to sit out for any length of time.
This is the biggest catch 22 for me.
When on injured I turn up for class anyway just to watch and take mental notes but by the end of the night I'm usually on the mets for a roll anyway.

Depending on how bad I'm hurt of course, I just can't watch everyone roll/spar and not want to jump in.

Stubbed toes, tendinitis in my right ankle, hyperextension of fingers the odd knee in the face, nothing major for me, but i tend to be picky about rolling partners and don't try to just muscle into or out of things.

It seems to me the injuries you get are much more serious in grappling than in striking.
Dislocated Fingers,
Dislocated Toes
Torn Rotator Cuff
Tissue Damage/Severe Bruising on my Back(got slammed from standing height by a bigger guy when putting on a triangle)
Hyperextension of both Elbows
Burst Eyebrow (straw knee)

Mat Burn on my Feet(worst injury ever, hate the things)

I've had a shoulder injury twice, probable slight torn rotator cuff. And a minor MCL tear. I also tor a ligament on a pinky knuckle, and its never got back the full spread range. But that's about it been lucky.
Badly bruised ribs, bruised bone in a shin, and a nerve spasm in my shin from kick boxing also

Other stuff like strained neck, inflamed elbows etc I won't even count as injurys.

Fingers, and toes...and fingers and toes...and rinse and repeat. Big injuries to the ribs, shoulder, knee and bith ankles. I have issues with my hip and lower back due to one leg being longer than the other, and being stacked while trying to get an armbar from the guard definitely doesn't help. I also have problems with my right arm (broke it pretty badly, enough to require surgery and a plate), so that I'm much more likely to tap to a sub on my right than on my left

None of the above injuries have had anything to do with my 7 year hiatus from training, though, and they aren't impacting my attempt to get back either (this ****in 'flu is though)

You weren't training for 7 years? How long are you back at it?

About 3 weeks. Meetings plus flu last week and this mean no training. Hopefully next week though
