I don't think the Vikes will let Adrian Pepperson go anytime soon.

Maybe we can convince them if they throw in Sage. Or convince the Cards to give up Thyme Hightower for cheap.

Hopefully Foster will get some playing time. That way we can determine if he's worth keeping around rather than hearing Kubiak say "I should've given the kid a chance to play".

So Brown and Moats and perhaps an Arian Foster sighting. I really want to see what Foster can do given an opportunity.

Glover Quin was just ruled out for Sunday's game due to a neck
injury. Brice Mccain should play in the Nickel Package. Glover was
actually starting next to Dunta, so it's a big blow for our secondary.

That's called a cervical vertebra nerve root impingment injury. Not good.

If he's had this injury for most of the season and they played him anyway it makes yo question Kubes judgement. Or it says alot about what Kubes thinks about C.Brown and R.Moats. IMO

Just another in a long line of mistakes made by Kubes this year. IMO

Damn, this sucks. I sure hope we don't see Fred Bennett on the field though. Play Parson or anybody else but not Bennett. And give Foster a few looks. I'd like to see what he's got.

Is this what's regularly referred to as a stinger?

If not, could it be possible that this was a lingering injury that could've contributed to his inability to secure the ball?

In its most minor form, it's called a "stinger." Stingers are caused by blows to the side of the head that cause stretching, compression or irritation of nerves. This causes a burning sensation in the neck that runs down the arm into the fingers. Numbness, "funny sensations," and weakness are also common in the involved arm and hand.

In this simple form, conservative rest, ice, anti-inflammatory meds, etc. This can last as short as a few seconds or a couple of weeks. The player should return to action only after ALL symptoms are resolved. If the symptoms become chronic (more than a week or 2) or recurrent, plain films of the neck, as well as an MRI or CT scan must be obtained, because this usually heralds signs of much more serious anatomical damage (eg., ruptured cervical disc, compression fracture, significant brachial nerve plexus injury). This is why it is so important for the player to be immediately perfectly honest about the presence of symptoms, and for the coach to immediately pull the player from game play action, no matter what the situation is. Otherwise, extension of the injury is likely. This is why a coach should never let a player "play through" a stinger.

And yes, such an injury could very well lead to inaccurate "feed back" by the nerves and muscles of the hand and arm to the brain, as to how tight the ball is being held and where the ball is in relation of the hand and arm as well as relation where the ball is "in space" in general. Hope that answers your question.

Texans RB Slaton out vs. Jaguars

Posted: December 6th, 2009 | Jason La Canfora | Tags: Houston Texans, Steve Slaton, Week 13 injuries

Texans RB Steve Slaton will not be active today against the Jaguars, according to a league source.

Slaton is dealing with numbness in his arm, stemming from a neck problem, and officially is listed as questionable.

CloakNNNdagger
12-06-2009, 10:14 AM
Rich Lord just stated that "Slaton was looking worse and worse with every practice." If this is so, you've got to question the coach's decision for continuing to expose him to a potentially dangerous situation. Another case of the players a just a piece of meat, to be used until time for discard? Is this another case of a Dominic Davis........short-sighted.............where it was more important to grind every little bit of "life" out of him "today," instead of attending to his known grinding up knee soon enough that he would be valuable to the team for a much more longer period of time?........not to mention, if nothing else for DD's own well-being.

I would definitely like to know when Slaton suffered the injury. Its not smart to keep putting him out there with something like this.

All you blaming Kubiak for Slaton still playing the last few weeks need to realize it was probably Slaton that hid the injury thinking it was nothing serious until his arm started getting numb. Then he probably realized it could be serious.
