    By: Ian Logue

    As if cornerback Devin McCourty didn't impress enough this season, fans learned Tuesday night that he also played through pain during his rookie campaign....

    All NFL players are playing banged up but his stock went way, way up. Baseball players take 6 months off around here for a broken rib.

    Yeah this is seriously impressive, I've never had a broken rib, but from talking to friends/family it is one hell of a painful injury....not to mention this guy played in the NFL while enduring this.....I liked McCourty a lot before this story, but after seeing this....WOW

    Here comes more BB bashing about playing fast and loose with the injury report.

    You could tell he broke a rib sometime around week ten. Not sure the exact game, but I specifically remember the play it happened on. Ribs are the most annoying injury known to man. You're constantly winded, in pain, and everytime you go into contact, move your arms, or fall it's the worst wind knocked out of you feeling going. Unless they're threatening a lung it's just a pain management thing. Wicked annoying ding that should have affected him more than it did. Kid's a hell of a player.

    Agreed. I broke the lower right rib many years ago, and I still wince when I think of it. It wasn't painful at all as long as I was sitting still or not moving and just breathing softly. It broke on the rear of the rib, just past the side.

    However, ANY kind of movement or deep breath and it hurt like h3ll. I can't imagine how anyone could play through that kind of pain without injections to numb up the area, and LOTS of ice and treatment afterward.

    "McCourty hurt his rib during the second quarter of New England's Week 14 victory in Chicago. After forcing a Johnny Knox fumble -- the fourth consecutive game in which he forced a turnover -- McCourty landed awkwardly on the frozen turf and cracked the rib. He briefly returned to the game but sat out the entire second half against the Bears"

    The article makes it sounds like he hurt it on the strip fumble play.

    Yea, but I think, "the legend builds" is more appropriate for this guy.

    Speaking of Ty, I wonder how he's doing. With the recession and all and being out of football. Hope he can still feed his family.

    "The pain caused him some pain for a week or two, but he played through it and finished the season."

    I'm impressed. Kid's a beast, as they say.

    In the last playoff game vs the Jets when Edwards was heading into the endzone he just did not look like the kid I watched before the Bears. He is a tough kid who kept producing down the stretch with a bad injury which would have kept most players out of the lineup. BB really did his homework on this kid and I am excited to see what this kid can do over the next few years.
