I can agree here. Last year I had surgery on another shoulder. I tore the rotator cuff, labrum and had a clavicle resection done. My labrum was torn pretty bad and needed 4 anchors (I think that's the right term) to reattach. It's my understanding that labrum tears take longer to heal than cuffs.
IMO, I think the "ED Reed had a torn labrum" talk is bull-butter. Otherwise, there would've been an operation involved. Maybe there was? Dunno
