I ice my shoulders when I work out and they haven't been seriously injured for a few years now.

I wouldn't worry about this. He probably just did some rehab and had to ice afterwards.

Right but Cushing only knows one speed and I fear he'll go too hard, he's never going to take it easy on himself. I understand him getting comfortable with the speed of the game but we wouldn't have drafted him if we thought he wouldn't be ready for it. To flip your question the other way, if the speed of the game is too much or overwhelming for Cushing then he aint worth taking a chance on right? I think he'll be ready for it, its the mental side that I think Cushing should be working on until week 1.

Kubiak said Cushing was a definite no for the Saints so I wouldn't be worrying about him yet. Honestly, I've wondered if this injury was the kind that a tough-guy of Cushing's reputation would play through? Doesn't matter but I'd like to see him in one of the last two preseason games for sure.

I would assume they begin to slowly work him back in early next week. I hope he can play a little against the Vikes, but won't be upset if we hold him out. I'd like to see him get a few reps in at least one of the last 2 preseason games. We'll see
From Kubiak on Cushing:

Quote:
(on LB Brian Cushing) "You know what, he's doing really well. He ran yesterday a little bit, I don't know if y'all have watched him. It's my understanding he ran a little bit today. He's on schedule; we don't have any doubts that he'll be ready to go opening week. Do we play him in the preseason next week or Tampa Bay? I think that's still up in the air. Our target date is to make sure he's ready to go against the Jets."
An ice down after a run is wise

So I know I've seen players play with a cast on their arm. Is this a break that June can play with a cast?

If not, how much time could we be looking at?

I heard on the radio earlier that the initial timetable is 6-8 weeks.

Wouldn't surprise me if they cut him and do an injury settlement though, since he was already on the bubble to begin with.

I hate to lose quality depth. Damn.

Shaun Alexander played with a cast in 2005. Unfortunately for anyone who drafted him in fantasy, he didn't produce much more yardage than if he sat on the bench.

7nd rounder... what a bust

On June, a broken arm is nothing, recovery is fairly fast and no crap once it's healed.

Default Re: SR610: Cato June has broken his forearm

Based on Kubiak's tone after practice, I'd say he's done. I hoped he'd get cut because it would have suggested that our LB core is solid. I didn't want it on the cheap like this. But I think he's not much of a loss.

Buster looked quick on ST. For what it's worth.

Default Re: SR610: Cato June has broken his forearm

It sounds like Cato's fracture included both bones of the forearm (ulna and radius), which is a common combination from a direct blow to the forearm in football. When both of the bones are broken along their shaft, the various muscles groups attached to them will spasm/contract in response to the injury and pain. This creates constant differential torquing stresses and variable movement of the bone segments. This combo fracture almost always requires surgery in an adult, since without surgery, the forearm is generally unstable and there is no ability to cast this type of fracture in a proper orientation.

These type of forearm fractures are most commonly treated by placing a metal plate and screws on both the radius and ulna bones. Some surgeons will use a rod within the bone to maintain the position of the bone, but this can't be done in fractures where rotational stability is an issue. Therefore, most both bones forearm fractures are treated with a plate and screws. This approach also allows quicker football ready return since you are not relying only on bone strength through natural healing. If the aforementioned scenario is indeed the case, true "football ready" rather than just being able to begin testing the arm, hopefully will be 6-8 weeks.
