Surely there was some kind of support role if a fighter was disabled in some way?

It makes no sense to put a fighter into a battle when they will be cut down the first enemy soldier encountered.

There surely could've been, but to a really desperate/cynical warlord, I guess a disabled warrior might work as a meat shield?

I'm not a student of war, but I should look into the strategies of armies before the age of firearms.

I remember seeing a movie as a child where prisoners where used as meat shields on castles under siege.
