    How do you break a blood vessel? I've heard of them rupturing but not breaking. Anyway I hope he makes a full recovery.

    They keep using the word "break", but I don't know .. isn't break or rupture pretty much the same thing?? .. no MD here.

    They should know more tomorrow about his condition. Hope he will recover. Hope it's not career ending like some reporters have been hinting at.

    I hate to say this, but a lady I work with had a daughter who had a vessel break in her head. She died from it. She was only 22. She was born with a weakness and there is no way of knowing, I have been told.
    I think football may be over for him.
    May GOD watch over him.

    Yea Sassy I guess when you think about it break and rupture would be the same thing. I've just only it termed a "rupture". You learn something new every day.

    I hope he recovers. They said on MSN he suffered a mild stroke. For some reason you don't think of that ever happening to a young athletic person.

    I'm not one to believe everything the media puts out. This report needs a little more "tweeking" before I believe it. I guess spending 38 yrs of my life in the medical field makes me a little skeptical of this report.

    I've read several places online (MSN, etc) where he suffered a "mild" stroke.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see. I keep forgetting to watch ESPN to see what they are saying.
