I can see two other ways to deal with wounds that happen within the extended contest.

 One would be that when you reach the grievous wound level the wound applied is the same as if it had been a simple contest result but with major and complete successes inflicting an Injury.

Secondly pass the -1 injury onto the follower of your opponent instead of the hero. As followers take injuries one level higher than heroes this would result in an injured follower. This would not affect the AP total unless the follower failed his relationship roll [Halved due to wound] and left the battle.
