"Ben has a shoulder sprain, and SC sprain, being evaluated, his participation is in the questionable category at this time" - Coach Tomlin


http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=hruby/101216_brett_favre_injuries&sportCat=nfl

19. Sprained sternoclavicular (SC) joint, right shoulder
Year: 2010

Favre file: Finally forced to miss start versus New York Giants.

Feels like: Very, very painful. Swelling and tenderness in the front of the chest. The SC joint attaches the collarbone to the breastbone -- in essence, the arm to the body -- which means most upper-body motions are affected. Worst case scenario: An unstable collarbone can compress major blood vessels, including the jugular vein and aorta.

Standard treatment: Requires careful evaluation by a specialist. Less severe cases require ice, anti-inflammatories, wearing a sling for a few weeks and rehab with range-of-motion exercises. More severe cases require surgery to rebuild torn ligaments.

Average recovery time: Three weeks to more than three months.

Weekend warrior impact: Your status as a jeans-wearin', backyard football all-time quarterback may be in doubt. "It's typically an extremely difficult injury from which to recover fully," Millett says. "Especially for an overhead-throwing athlete."

"...pretty significant..."

Again, fingers crossed that it's "just" a Type II.

Tomlin calling it a "shoulder sprain."

I'd take that as a Stage 1/Type I that Dilfer alluded to last night.  I think those run the gamut; could be back this week, could miss a game or two.

I need to stop reading.  Driving me nuts.

Saw Ben on Halloween (pre-Milledgeville)

Its looks like Leftwich will be starting versus the Ratbirds.  I don't blame Ben for this one, although I would be surprised if he is not back for Steelers-Ravensv.2.0.

Edit: Did not actually read the article, so didn't see the business about the aorta.

This whole aorta business, I doubt Ben's back for several weeks.  Maybe December.  Maybe 2013.

Think I'll start working on draft shit.  Or maybe take up watercolors.  I always wanted to paint pretty landscapes and kittens and shit like that there.

Dunno what you guys are talkin' about.

Ben doesn't even have an aorta.  Heard he lost it in a game versus Temple back in '01.
