Default Re: Texans/Patriots Injury Report

FYI FWIW Yates has shown up on the Injury Report for the past 2 weeks as "right elbow." That's his throwing arm. Elbow problems are surprisingly uncommon in quarterbacks. Because of the possibility of an impact from the defense, a quarterback usually uses an abbreviated follow-through during the deceleration phase of throwing rather than a complete follow-through, as in pitching. There are therefore less elbow injuries in football quarterbacks than in baseball pitchers because of the lower forces and torques (no twisting of the wrists used in the motion) required during the football deceleration phase. Has he already begun wearing it out?
