Matt Schaub's injury history
I am only responding to this question and his "throwing" shoulder injury. Yes, I was well aware of the history of his hip "injury." It was compliments of none other than Fat Albert, who managed to accurately direct his helmet into Schaub's hip. It was simply a muscle contusion injury, with no structural damage ever found from then to the present.
As far as the "throwing" shoulder injury. He first sustained a soft tissue bruise injury to his throwing shoulder in 2003 while at Virginia. Although it was reported initially as a "shoulder separation," no structural damage was ever detected with any imaging. He was held out two games without any firther problems the remainder of the season (in fact, he went on to score a 141 QB rating for that year). His 2011 listing (immediately prior to his Lisfranc) as a "lingering" throwing shoulder injury, was anything but lingering. It was a result of a significant right chest (pectoralis major muscle) contusion (bruise). Again, no structural damage was revealed on imaging the shoulder. Anyone whose ever had a significant muscular chest bruise, knows that any movement of the shoulder on the affected side can be extremely painful and limiting of its range of motion.
Wesseling would probably do better leaving injury reporting and interpretation to someone else.
