Another great decision by the Texans medical and coaching staff.
Actually this is sounds like something that Sharpton did on his own. I thought I heard Kubiak say that they did not know about it until after the game.
Let us know what subluxed is?
In your opinion, is this another injury that returns a player at 80 to 90'ish % of his former ability or one that (for once) can be rehabilitated to 100%?
And what exactly is the injury? I know you'll have a great graphic.
With these injuries you really can't blame this season on coaching.
Shoulder subluxation is basically a stretching/tearing of the ligaments of the shoulder joint that hold the ball in the socket. When the ball pops out of the the socket and stays that way, it is referred to as a shoulder dislocation. After it essentially pops back in, if the ligaments are stretched and torn enough, the ball loosely bounces around the socket, giving an instability to the shoulder joint........this is referred to shoulder subluxation.
Note, with this stretching/tearing of the ligaments, the ball is no longer held tightly to the socket.
If it is an uncomplicated subluxation, the prognosis shoulder be excellent. The main concern is re-dislocation. With non-surgical treatment, you will see close to 95% redislocation. With proper surgical treatment, you can expect close to 95% never to experience another dislocation.
There are some scenarios that can include rotator cuff, labrum and/or neurovascular injuries which would carry their own co=morbidities. These are usually experienced by those over 40 years old. However, a certain severe trauma to the shoulder (which can occur in the context of football) can lead to these problems in younger age groups. MRI would identify the extent of Sharpton's injury(ies). We may or may not be privy to these findings in the future.
(on how rookie LB Darryl Sharpton graded out against the Broncos and his injury status) He struggled a little bit, but it sure as heck wasnt effort. All the sudden you go from playing well at Will (weakside linebacker) and youre doing a good job. We wanted to put a little more on his plate, put him at Mike (middle linebacker), let him run the defense, so to speak. So, from that standpoint, he had some mistakes that took him back a little bit. But nothing to do with effort. He was exceptional in his effort in the game.
He actually is done for the year. He will not play this week. He subluxed his shoulder and could possibly be facing surgery and he played the whole damn game with it, so that tells you what kind of guy he is. We knew about it at halftime, he refused to come out. He played the whole second half with it.
(on the exact injury to LB Darryl Sharpton) He subluxed it, it popped out. Its got to be fixed.
They knew about it? And he refused to come out? Who the hell is running the show around here? What kind of medical staff do we have?
Way to have control coach/medical staff.
I know I'm comparing apples to oranges but...
'Hey coach, I think I got a concussion but I'm fine! I promise, I'm fine! Don't worry. Should something else happen, it won't be on you for a change."
I addressed this same subject in the AJ discussion. My opinion hasn't wavered. http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1617839&postcount=69
So it appears they felt much more comfortable having him continue playing Mike less than 100% than putting in a healthy Bentley or moving over Cushing.
when I read that, all I could think of the similar condition of this with Slaton called suckluxation and all balls popping out of his socket
Hahahahahahahaha ... hahahahahahahahaha .... hahahahahahahahaha
This is a known complication of shoulder subluxation in a balls carrier.
