Pretty substantial injury for Chad.
Do you think had he been healthy the outcome against the Steelers woulda been different?
I had a rotator cuff injury a few years ago skiing. Guess because I wasn't in the NFL, the docs here said they recommended against surgery because of concerns for worse results like Bosselli (no this is not an invitation to re-debate Bosselli). In any event, it has made it so I cannot throw anything hard with my right arm--play catch yes, but try to put anything on it and it starts to come apart. Hopefully Pennington gets a good result.
No wonder Chad couldn't get much on any of his throws....
That is sad to here. He is very young. I wish him well on his recovery. I wonder if this will be Quincy second coming? I geuss we will have to see.
Now this prognosis comes from a non-sports medical clinic, but not too rosy:
Makes you wonder if the Jets were rushing him back too quickly.
yeah well gotta give it to the guy playing through out the post season like that ! People in NY should be happy as much as they complain about Chad.
I have a relative who seriously tore a rotator cuff five years ago and STILL doesn't have much more than 70% strength in the arm--and forget about lifting anything heavy over his head with that arm. For a QB, this could be devastating. Then again, I check myself and think about people like Garrison Hearst or (to a lesser extent but still miraculous) Robert Edwards who train hard and do manage to come back.
Pennington's a talent. I'd hate to see that career cut short by a serious injury.
sounds like surgrey either makes ya better or a whole lot worse ! Hope it works out for him. he is a good QB !
