    I hate to bring this back up but I REALLY REALLY HOPE that this doesn't mirror his shoulder injury last year at all! You know...where he came back and everyone said he was fully healed when clearly he wasn't because he was playing like crap...so yeah hope that's not going to happen again!!! Those trainers better not rush this!!!

    good news is after our bye, we play the rams so if he needs another week, we can give him another week. We can beat the rams with Fitz

    If they're saying 3 weeks, and he has the bye, I'm pretty sure he'll be good to go against STL. They are NFL trainers and this injury is much different than what he had last year.

    Different scenario as he dislocated his throwing shoulder last season and it continued to pop out during the season.

    Shoulders and hips are technically "ball and socket" joints. In the hip, the head of the femur (the large bone) articulates well inside of the ascetabalum (the socket). This articulation is why the hip is so hard to dislocate, takes a tremendous amount of force. The shoulder on the other hand is held in mostly by muscle because of the rather lack of curve in the glenoid (shoulder socket). When a shoulder dislocates the muscles that hold it in get stretched and irritated. These are the same muscles used in overhead throwing motions I.E. rotator cuff. Once dislocated the shoulder will sublux rather easily due to the hyper-stretching of the muscles.Plus when you dislocate a should you most likely tear the labarum, the covering inside the socket. That is why locker was never the same without surgery and why with good rehab he will have not problems when he comes back.

    What is ESPN smoking. Seriously, if I messed up this bad at work I would be fired. First, there was a guy on ESPN talking about Jake's injury with fantasy football. He said we have an easy schedule coming up with the Bengals, and Buffalo. WHAT????? Seriously? They aint even on our schedule.

    Then the bus in the second video says we play in a weak division. WHAT???? Two 3-1s and a top 5 Houston team a week ago. Get it together ESPN. Seriously.
