    ”It’s doing okay, it will be fine by Saturday.” JJ Watt on his right arm issue. Injured it on Sunday vs Jacksonville and now wearing a sleeve today. #Texans[​IMG]⁠ ⁠

    I realize this may be the case but I sure hope it isn't. I know "it's football" and that's just the way things go sometimes but I really hate to see someone just starting out in their pro career, and with so much potential, only to have it all end so quickly before their first season is even over (see Charles Spencer)! It's just a sad way to go out and I hope it's not the end for Foreman. Hope he can come back next season 100% and give it another shot!

    This is that injury thing (name escapes me) that is the same as Sammy Watkins? Must be mild if he is still playing, but substantial risk increase game after game. Is that correct?

    Jones stress fracture. I've posted many posts in this thread about my feeling that this is going on with Hopkins.........and implications. He is apparently handling the pain being fortunate that the fracture has not completed, but would not be surprised if he undergoes surgery in the offseason.

    Didn't JJo have an issue with this early in his career?

    In 2007.
    Depends on type and extent of the Lisfranc. A Lisfranc in general has greater influence on long term effects and production after definitive treatment.

    Hopkins reportedly played through a grade III AC sprain, but said it won't require surgery.

    I would seriously question if this was a Grade III AC shoulder separation. He evidently will not undergo surgery (which is not unusual for even a Grade III........if conservative measures after 3 months fail, then he may be looking at the knife). Understand that in the unlikely event that it were a Grade III, ~20% will have associated intraarticular (joint cartilage) pathology with most of these being superior labrum anterior posterior (SLAP) tears. Loss of the AC joint stability would potentially affect the upper extremity strength by its effect on the stabilization of the scapula (shoulder blade). Next, there is potential that the AC joint remains painful, despite nonoperative management. With the demands on an elite athlete like Hopkins, chronic pain in itself could be a real limiting factor.

    Makes sense. I've never heard of an athlete playing through a full AC separation.
