12. Earl Morrall
Accolades After Injury: 1972 Comeback Player of the Year 1972 Super Bowl Champion
After a devastating shoulder injury the year before, not many expected Earl Morrall to suit up again. Taking over for the injured Bob Griese, Morrall took the helm of the 4-0 Dolphins and helped the team to a perfect record en route to an AFC Championship. However, Morrall didn't start in the Super Bowl of that year, because of a bad performance in the AFC Championship and the return of a healthy Griese. It didn't end up too bad for him though. Morrall won the Comeback Player of the Year, an AFC Player of the Month award, and a championship. How many players can say they did that?
