apples and oranges.
getting injured playing a sport is almost inevitable, no matter the individual, even in intramurals, if you play long enough. its a risk you take playing a sport. but CF is a (very very poor) training program NOT a sport.
in most cases, you should not get injured training in your gym for your sport/work. the exception, i suppose, would be olympic lifting or powerlifting. if an individual did get injured it is usually a result of stupidity, ego, or both.
