Looks like UNLV starting QB Blake Decker did not injure his hamstring afterall vs. UCLA last week, but rather another muscle in his hip/groin area called obturator internus.
Not a doctor. Not sure how painful that is, but it is apparently less serious in terms of recovery time and painful nagging injury that needs rest.
Any med students or doctors want to chime in on a obturator internus strain/pull injury?
It looks to me like it would still hurt like a mother, and feel more like a groin pull injury.
I think sophomore Kurt Palandech is the likely starter however. Sanchez is already quoted as not planning to burn the redshirt of freshman Dalton Sneed.
Quick interview from Brendan Quinn over on Mlive with Spike on the hip injury that was bothering him all season. New info to me was that it is not just one hip, but both that could require surgery to reduce pain. Touches mainly on the tough decision to potentially miss all of spring/summer, or continue to train through the pain and then most likely play your entire senior season in pain.
First thread topic, so apologies if formatting or link are screwed up.
Not much new here, as per usual with Baumgardner. Sounds like Peppers is healthy and doing very well in spring practice. He's going to be fun to watch this fall.
ESPN is reporting that Kobe Bryant is done for the year, having torn his rotator cuff. I wonder how bad of a record the Lakers are going to finish with this season. They are already 12-31 and nearly in last in the West. With 39 games to go, how many more wins do you think they'll get to? 20 total tops? Here is a link to ESPN reporting it: LINK
EDITED: Back in my office, so updating post I'd originally done on mobile to include link and contain more facts.
Injuries have been a running problem in the NCAA and B1G this season, not just at UM. Apparently the Illini have decided to take a drastic step though. Their roster was down to only 7 players versus Purdue this week, so effective with Saturday's game against Minnesota, they are adding a player to their roster. The team's former student manager, Ryan Schmidt, has been promoted to walk-on status and will now be suiting up for the Illini. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I just hope it doesn't ever come to this for us.
In a Freep interview (sorry) Spike revealed that he has had a lower body injury that is seriously limiting him in games and practice. Surgery may be necessary, but a decision has been made to wait until the offseason, given the operation's long recovery time.
