    Crap, the worry warts were right - Still 5 weeks until it counts, thankfully.

    For the second time today, let me say....

    Awe crap...

    Not so much for Tedy, sounds minor and will be back before it really counts (fingers crossed) but this is bad news for Monty. Interupting the chemistry-building that was going on with the the two of them may set Monty back, and it certainly won't help his progress any. :(

    I blame it on the stupid new facemask he's trying out. Dammit! Hopefully he'll be at back at practice working with Beisel within a week for the non-contact stuff (if there is any). Just a small bump in the road... I hope.

    What happened to Starks...didnt he hurt his wrist? Well Bruschi is a heck of a lot tougher than Starks I suppose.

    Too many worries, KOOL-AID right? Look to the bright things going in camp only. When we are done with training camp, most of the bad stuff should be all good by then. :blahblah:

    All in a day's work. If true it does not appear to be an injury that will sideline Bruschi come September 10th. Just keep perspective gang. Injuries happen, and will happen. If anything, it may offer up more play time to those up & comers who need it (that there's called glass half-full :) )

    Did he get his hand stuck in it or something?

    Seriously, put a big cast on it and put him back in the game. You don't have to tackle a guy if you can club him senseless.

    Hoping it's some kind of hairline or chip fracture - if it was displaced they'd probably already know it. Well, LB's can play with a hand cast - tougher to get a pick but a fairly lethal weapon if used to advantage...

    Well, better now than a month from now.

    Barring any speculation about BB injury obfuscation, I would say that if it IS a broken wrist (as opposed to a severe sprain), it's probably a scaphoid fracture (small bone below your thumb) as opposed to a radial fracture (the end of the larger bone in your forearm). You KNOW when you have a radial fracture (at least I did). Scaphoid fractures can appear initally to be a sprain, and may require an MRI / bone scan to diagnose.

    If it is a scaphoid fracture, and it's non-displaced (doesn't need to be set or screwed), we're probably looking at 6-8 weeks out.

    Not an MD, just someone with some experience breaking bones. Any MD's read patsfans.com ?

    Ugh....this is why a part of me wishes we could just do some conditioning drills for a few weeks and start the season. Training camp = me living in daily TERROR of someone like Seymour going down with season ending injury. Injuries are about 90 percent of where my interest is directed each and every day.

    Kevin Mawae proved that. I don't think he ever had a wrist injury, he just wore a big ol' cast to club guys in the face coming out of his stance.

    I'm not too worried about this. Tedy missed camp last year (and half the season) and came back with barely a missed step. This might keep him out a few weeks of camp, but as long as he's good to go by the first game (maybe play in the last preseason game), it's all good.

    This could be alot worse, like last year.

    Well it could have been worse on the timing front. Bruschi set the tone for how training camp is going to be...Rough and aggressive. Let him return with Harrison in mid September.

    Tedy's seen worse. This will be a minor bruise to him.

    We still have a long time before the reg season starts. This should be a non factor as he will still be able to participate in the non-contact practice and help Monty out there.

    My hand is not even close to the panic button. And,no, it's not there either.

    Yeah, but we still have Willie McGinest creating chaos in the backfield and if we can't get enough pressure on the QB with Brewski out we have Ty Law to stifle the passing game...oops...ah...never mind...

    It sucks but Tedy should be back fighting in no time.

    Is is just me or have there been more serious injuries in NFL training camps this year? Maybe it's just because I was sitting at home for 2 weeks watching ESPN/NESN or listening to NFL Radio non-stop to keep my sanity and was just paying more attention to the reports than I normally could while at work?

    Seems about the average amount. A few serious injuries then a bunch of little ones gearing up for the season.

    Exactly the reason I am uptight watching the first half of preseason games (or whenever starters are in). That 4th game, where everybody sits, is a blessing.

    This is hilarious. We got a guy giving a diagnosis on a player he has never examined or even seen an xray. How the heck can you write this stuff when the only info you can go on is a new article? Wow.

    Thanks, SB54. I've probably just paid more attention to the reports that I am usually able to.

    I actually found his diagnosis quite enlighting. I doubt anyone is gonna hold him to it in court, but it allows me to get a better understanding of the intricasies of breaking a wrist regardless if his diagnosis is correct.

    That is one of the durable, bedrock truths about this game we love.
    In a sport of high-speed, violent collisions, injuries lurk everywhere ... just waiting to pop.

    Belioli have learned that. More important, they invented the best way to address omnipresent carnage.
    A roster full of upper-middle-class players. Depth. Effective depth.

    The Branch drama playing out dolefully over there ... personifies the tough love for the team
    that it takes to build such a deep, versatile roster.

    You can only pay top dollar for your very few HOF'ers. The rest of the money ...
    what you save by letting Woody, Andruzzi, Givens, Patten, Law, Milloy, Ashworth go elsewhere ...
    without trying to match their big paydays ... that lets you hire more million-dollar athletes
    further down the roster than anyone else has.

    Those guys, in turn, can win you Super Bowls ... even as the team absorbs record injuries.

    hmmm i beg to differ my good man. I feel that it is a radial fracture (the end of the larger bone in your forearm) as opposed to a scaphoid fracture (small bone below your thumb). I've broken my thumb and my wrist (seriously) and have witnessed several people fall and break various bones.

    You are just always so witty and pleasant. Your non-stop critiques are less enlightening than the posts you criticize.

    Looking forward to your impending criticism.
