    bad news

    Texans DE Mario Williams sat out Sunday's training camp practices with a swollen hip. Head coach Gary Kubiak said Williams might need 'a couple of days' to recover. Kubiak said Williams has battled a chronic hip problem his entire career!

    The main reason to be concerned is that marios hip has been aproblem for multiple years.

    At this point, it looks like the coaches just being very conservative.

    But if it continues to nag him, Im going to be concerned

    Every single year he seems like he's got some nagging injury holding him back from greatnes

    As long as it's muscular and not aseptic necrosis (avascular necrosis).

    Google is your friend.

    1. Copy the words "avascular necrosis"

    2. Go to google.com

    3. Paste the words "avascular necrosis" into google search bar

    4. Click "search"

    5. Select any search result, and read

    Here's what I found out, using the aforementioned system:

    Definition:

    Avascular necrosis (also osteonecrosis, bone infarction[1], aseptic necrosis, ischemic bone necrosis[2], and AVN) is a disease where there is cellular death (necrosis) of bone components due to interruption of the blood supply.[3] Without blood, the bone tissue dies and the bone collapses.[2] If avascular necrosis involves the bones of a joint, it often leads to destruction of the joint articular surfaces (see Osteochondritis dissecans).

    Causes:

    There are many theories about what causes avascular necrosis. Proposed risk factors include alcoholism,[4] excessive steroid use,[5] post trauma,[6][7] caisson disease (decompression sickness),[8][9] vascular compression,[10] hypertension, vasculitis, arterial embolism and thrombosis, damage from radiation, bisphosphonates (particularly the mandible),[11] sickle cell anaemia,[12] and Gaucher's Disease.[13] In some cases it is idiopathic (no cause is found).[14] Rheumatoid arthritis and lupus are also common causes of AVN. Prolonged, repeated exposure to high pressures (as experienced by commercial and military divers) has been linked to AVN, though the relationship is not well-understood.

    Prognosis:

    The amount of disability that results from avascular necrosis depends on what part of the bone is affected, how large an area is involved, and how effectively the bone rebuilds itself. The process of bone rebuilding takes place after an injury as well as during normal growth.[24] Normally, bone continuously breaks down and rebuilds—old bone is reabsorbed and replaced with new bone. The process keeps the skeleton strong and helps it to maintain a balance of minerals.[24] In the course of avascular necrosis, however, the healing process is usually ineffective and the bone tissues break down faster than the body can repair them. If left untreated, the disease progresses, the bone collapses,[2] and the joint surface breaks down,[14] leading to pain and arthritis.[14]

    Notable individuals affected:

    Avascular necrosis cut short the football and baseball careers of star athlete Bo Jackson.[28]

    Other sports stars with this condition are former NFL running back Garrison Hearst, cyclist Floyd Landis, NFL quarterback Brett Favre, professional wrestler "Superstar" Billy Graham, wrestler Joe Heat, Number one draft pick for the Minnesota Lynx: Ben Dvorak, NBA player Jorge Garbajosa, NHL goaltender Ray Emery and gymnast Jade Barbosa.

    In addition to the athletes listed, AVN has affected Edward Van Halen, lead guitarist for the rock band Van Halen, Ed Graham, drummer of the bands The Darkness and Stone Gods, and Micky Dolenz, the drummer/singer of the band The Monkees.

    Recent research into the cause of death of Tutankhamun suggests that it may have been a factor in the pharaoh's death.

    --------------

    There's no telling how far Micky Dolenz could have gone had AVN not ravaged his career.

    Thanks, GP

    In football players, avascular necrosis of the hip most commonly occurs through 1)the trauma of dislocation or severe direct compression impact on the joint, 2) systemic anti-inflammatory corticosteroid (e.g., prednisone), oral or intramuscular, 3)anabolic steroid use, and 4)direct therapeutic anti-inflammatory corticosteroid joint injections.............many times a combination of the aforementioned. As was the case of Bo Jackson, he sustained a shoulder dislocation (while playing football, not baseball), was treated with oral and intramuscular corticosteroids for inflammatory aches and pains during his career, partook of anabolic steroids, and received direct corticosteroid injections into the joint. A very serious direct side effect of a cortisone injection into the joint area is the death of the bone at the injection site, especially the ball of the hip and ball of the shoulder, i.e., avascular necrosis. The other next most common sites involve the shoulder and knee. With Mario having both his present hip problem (and we really don’t known how long he has had this problem) and having had shoulder surgery for a chronic shoulder problem, the potential for this diagnosis began bothering me. The problem with such a diagnosis (if indeed that is even what it would be) is that we may never know until very much later, because it is not a diagnosis that in a player like Mario you would want the world to know.

    Thanks for your take on his injury. My computer has a virus so I've been using my phones browser.

    I heard that Mario received an "injection" today for a "hip" pointer." Hopefully, that is all it is. The mechanism of injury, direct blow to the hip region, as well as the signs and symptoms, can be similar and difficult to distinguish from avascular necrosis of the hip, especially if the diagnosis is not entertained.

    I'm very worried about it. Anything "chronic" worries me especially when it still is there and exists. Mario seems to always have some sort of undisclosed injury a lot it seems like that we ended up hearing about after the fact. A hip problem could spell a lot of trouble down the road.

    A somewhat strange quote from Kubiak today:

    Due to corticosteroid injections and who knows what else, can this problem occur in multiple regions, like the shoulder and hip?

    Yes. The hip and shoulder knee are the most common sites. You commonly see this process occur in mutiple sites both contemporaneously (>50% of cases) and at separate time frames.
