    What is DM's "fibula" injury?

    The least injury that I can think of to the fibula is a bone bruise, which can lead to generalized pain in the area. Still this injury usually is rested for a week or so. X-rays and bone scans do not usually pick this type of injury up. MRI will demonstrate bone marrow swelling to make the diagnosis. The thing you worry about is a stress fracture which may manifest initially with the same presentation but may not be able to be visualized on x-ray or bone scan for 10 days or so. If repeat exams are performed then, if present, a stress fracture can identified. An MRI will show the same marrow swelling as seen in a bone bruise, and possibly pick the fracture site up initially........but it also can in some cases miss the early stress fracture. It should readily identify it later. Clinically, if the pain later pin-point localizes to a spot on the fibula, an underlying stress fracture is likely present. A stress fracture can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks to recover, depending on the severity and progress.

    Hopefully, "fibula" on the Injury Report refers to a "bone bruise."

    Thanks, Doc. Fingers crossed it's just a bone bruise. We need that guy on the field on Sundays.

    I suppose this is the real reason they wanted to limit his participation on kick returns.

    I'm glad to see Bryant Johnson and Sherrick McManis off the list. I hope they make more than a cameo appearance in the Music City game.

    He's not going to play this week. With a pectoralis tear, if it is not rested long enough , it can easily turn into a Mario complete rupture scenario. His tear is apparently greater than just a few torn muscle or tendon fibers (Grade I) which would have only been ~1 week recovery. We know it isn't a Grade III complete rupture in that he was not rushed to surgery. Therefore, it must be a Grade II partial tear which may require anywhere from 2-6 weeks depending on its severity.
