Default Suggs Injured Torn Biceps

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter

Terrell Suggs has torn biceps. Doctors say there are some torn biceps players can play through, others they can't. Thus, 2nd opinion needed.

Losing Suggs is a big hit to that defense ... and to their chances of winning in the playoffs. Probably have to move Baltimore out of my top 5 if he doesnt play.

Default Re: Suggs Injured Torn Biceps

Since they are even considering him playing, makes me think that Suggs may have a similar injury to what Karlos Dansby (Phins LB) has been playing with for weeks.

The biceps muscle runs between the shoulder blade and the bone of the forearm, and is involved in bending the arm. A biceps rupture is where the muscle breaks away from one of the bones to which it is attached, usually causing pain and a lack of strength when moving the arm. The biceps muscle consists of two parts, known as the long head and the short head, and each of these is attached to the shoulder blade by a strong band of tissue known as a tendon, while lower down the heads merge and are joined by a single tendon to the bone of the forearm.

Nearly all (~95%) of biceps tendon ruptures occur in the proximal biceps and involve the long head of the biceps tendon (labelled #10 below). The remaining ruptures occur in the distal biceps tendon (labelled #4 below) and in the short head of the biceps tendon (labelled #5 below). Normally with the biceps rupture involving the tendon of the long head ripping away from the shoulder bone, the muscle as a whole may still function, although much weaker.




If he is allowed to play.......and can play through the pain, it will be with a massive Cyborg-like brace (ala Dansby) which will limit his range of motion at the elbow, specifically the extension of his forearm in order to avoid stretching the remaining muscle. His effectiveness as a pass rusher and pass defender will be severely compromised even if he is able to play.

They will probably rush him back to play for the playoffs.

They rush all of their guys back to the field it seems like.

From PFT.com:

Quote:
A source with knowledge of the situation explains that, if Suggs needs surgery to repair his torn biceps muscle, thereís a window within which the surgery must be performed or it can never be performed.

If itís not performed within said window, the muscle would never return to 100 percent.

Actually, for an elite player, especially one that relies on this muscle to maintain eliteness. it is smart to have such an injury repaired as quickly as possible following the diagnosis. Those players that wait more than 2 to 3 weeks following this type of injury (evidently a complete rupture of at least one of the biceps tendons) are unlikely to ever return to truly normal function. As the muscle in this case is no longer attached to bone on each end, it is no longer kept stretched out and therefore will shorten/retract and scar contract in place after this period of time to the point that it can no longer be re-stretched in order to re-attach it primarily to the bone. In order to regain continuity of the contracted end of the muscle/tendon, an interposition graft must be placed to span the missing length. Even doing so, entirely normal function and strength is seldom able to be reinstituted........and postoperative problems and the need for additional revisionary surgeries is not uncommon.
