I'd count bad bruises as "really minor injuries" -- but I didn't count the

minor bruises I got while first learning ukemi as injuries in the poll, I said I was uninjured.

But I've gotten some pretty painful bruises and tendonitis etc that have kept me from using one side for a few days, so I can certainly see why people would count those as injuries.

I suppose this is why the other poll asked who had been "seriously injured," since that would weed out all bruises except ones like Suzanne got recently (I hope you're OK, Suzanne!)
