    You can ALWAYS hurt an injury worse. ALWAYS. If you couldn't then it would have been impossible to get the injury in the first place.

    I think the term "hurting it worse" is accurate. For instance, if your ACL is half healed, playing on it is stupid because you are at a very high risk of retearing it. In the case of a bone bruise, he is not playing on weakened muscles or tendons... it simply will hurt a lot.

    I did something similar to my foot once and asked the doctor how quickly I could be running on it again. He kinda blinked and then said, well, you won't hurt it any more than it already is, but it will really hurt to run on it for awhile.
