    that Bruschi's leg "tightened up on him". Knowing his track record with the truth on injuries, it's hard to say if that's good or bad. Let's hope for the best.

    I heard it too. It's hard to hear the questions, but I understood the one about "Why are players like Bruschi playing on special teams in a game like this?" LOL, loud and clear.

    Aaaand hopefully 'tightened up' = cramp/pull and they were playing it safe. Very true that you never know with BB though.

    Despite what most people think, a cramp can really be debilitating. A severe cramp brought on by dehydration can certainly render someone unable to walk. As lactic acid builds up, the muscle has a harder time working, and eventually it will shut down. I sincerely hope that's the case with this particular injury. A partial tear or sprain seem like possibilities at this point too.

    All we can do is speculate, I guess.

    Ugh, I really hate listening to the post game announcers though..."All we know is it is NOT. GOOD. HE leaves the game on a cart and doesn't return. NOT. GOOD."

    WE. GET. IT.

    The dreaded "tightening up", my worst fear.

    That narrows it down to something between a twisted ankle and amputation in BB speak. :confused:

    Madden Gets it Right

    Called it a cramp at the time of the injury.
