What I've learned in my 5+ years covering the sport is that athletes in general just don't like talking about injuries, particularly if they are still currently injured. So I appreciated Evan taking me through step by step what happened to him.
One thing I like about Lionel Sanders(pro iron man triathlete), on his youtube channel he has taken us through step by step his recovery from injury(fractured a bone in his leg from a bike accident). Injuries are apart of the sport, being transparent is better for the fans. But I understand the reason for keeping it under cover from a competitive stand point.
Sponsors don't want you to be posting youtube videos about how injured you are all the time. Actually, most people don't care to be taken through every single step of the injury process. We all knew Jager was injured, it would have been nice if he updated us at least once in the 5 months he was out.
