Question: would his grip suffer from any of this?
This is what I posted on 8/25/11 when I found out that he had a C7 problem.:

But you aren’t ever going to look much better than a Pop Warner QB, with a bum triceps.
Furthermore, there are also lesser important contributions in the innervation of the wrist extensors and the pronator muscle.........a muscle which allows palm up to palm down twisting (pronating) of the wrist, a motion you may want to use to direct the ball outwardly to the right.
