    I vividly remember watching Joe Theisman's leg snap like a pencil on live TV (which they replayed several times right after it happened, blood and all) and E.J.s video is the closest thing to that I've ever seen. While Theisman's was far more gruesome, I still think there's a huge possibility this ends Henderson's career. The poor guy spent all night in intensive care. If a man that tough needed ICU, that can't be good.

    It really hurts my soul to think about what he's going through, especially after last year.
    Mike, don't let the ICU throw you off to much. In EJ's case, being put in ICU was most likely for one major reason, INFECTION ! Not that he had one, but to battle the injure head on, so that he doesn't get an infection. Infections are ones worst enemy after any kind of bone break.

    Almost 2 years ago, when I had my 5 disc removed and fused, first place they put my big rear end was in ICU for 4 days, then they put me on a re-hab floor and did everything in their power to keep me out of bed and up and moving around. It wasn't that I was on the verge of death, like many think ICU is for, but they wanted to make sure that I didn't even get a hint of an infection after surgery.....Infections can and are deadly !

    EJ is on the right track, and I pray he walks on the field of play again in the future, but way to early to call that one now.
    Thanks for filling me in on that. I remember Greg Lloyd getting a staph infection after a bone break that ended up bringing his career to an end. That staph stuff is scary.
    Lloyd, the Steelers LB? Yup, one hell of a player there also.... Not all infections are deadly, but none should ever go not treated or in some cases, steps taken to prevent one from happening.

    I was just watching that show on TV last week, the Female DR G. man, it's on the tip of my tongue now and can't think, oh yea, she's a Medical Examiner ( does autopsies ).

    Well this guy just died on his couch, after being sick for 4 days, in his home.
    Long story short....

    He had a tooth infection that he didn't treat, spread into his neck and then his chest cavity. Killed him dead.Even she almost gagged when she opened his rib cage, she said it was nothing but a big pile of puss.......Nasty, and he was only 46 years old.....
    Another issue with a significant break like that is a fat embolism. Essentially, marrow enters the bloodstream and acts like a clot. It typically occurs 1-3 days after the injury - which is probably another reason why he's in ICU. And the femur - being the largest bone in the body - is the most common cause of fat embolisms.

    Infection risk is huge - depending upon what type of break he had and how they had to correct it.

    I hope, of course, that everything goes smoothly, and that EJ recovers quickly.

    The image of Erin Henderson riding on the cart last Sunday night clutching the hands of his brother, who had just fractured his femur, is one that remains vivid in the minds of everyone associated with the Vikings.

    Erin was inactive for the game, the 11th time in 12 games he hasnít suited up this season, but it was obvious that his emotions were anything but inactive as he saw his older brother, the heart and soul of the Vikings defense and a team captain, suffer a serious injury.

    Re:EJ out with Broken leg

    Jasper was great against the run in preseason and really laid the wood.
    But he was a step slow in pass coverage.
    He now has one of the most critical jobs in the cover two defense.
    Hope he is capable.

    [size=13pt]Vikings' Henderson leaves hospital, returns home[/size]

    By DAVE CAMPBELL , Associated Press
    Last update: December 9, 2009 - 4:43 PM

    Injured Minnesota Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson is returning to Minnesota.

    Henderson had surgery in Phoenix after breaking his left thigh bone in Sunday night's loss at Arizona. He had been in a hospital, but he was cleared Wednesday to come back.

    "He's a man of few words, but he's in good spirits by all indications," coach Brad Childress said.

    Henderson's younger brother, Erin, held his hand as he taken off the field in a cart after his leg bent in a gruesome-looking direction. He stayed with him overnight before returning to Minnesota.

    Childress wouldn't get into specifics about any of the injuries, but quarterback Brett Favre indicated Loadholt dislocated his shoulder.
    Thats not good. Last thing we need is for our starting tackle to have a dislocated shoulder.

    [size=13pt]Erin Henderson: 'It was hard to see my brother like that'[/size]


    "It was hard for me to see my brother like that," he said. "He took it very well though. Right after it happened he just kind of sat there and looked down at his leg and was like, 'Yeah, something is not right.' I think that made it a little bit easier for everybody, him not crying and doing all of these different things."

    EJ's the man...
