    Damage to a vein sounds worse than an infected bursa to me.

    I actually bursted my bursa sack in sophomore year of high school. It was a JV football game against the Linden Tigers, I had two sacks, a batted pass, and a forced fumble in the first half.

    The first sack was on a QB rollout, and I caught the kid from behind, dragging him down by the jersey with one arm.

    The second one was awesome. I put a quick swim move on the guard, who barely touched me, and sacked the QB at full speed, by far the hardest I've ever hit someone, forced a fumble. The kid went to the sidelines, minutes later he was in an ambulance. It was either a rib or shoulder injury, he got jacked up. I've never had a bigger smile on my face on a football field.

    We were up 35-0 at the half. Play resumes, first series I get into the backfield(again ) I'm on the hunt for the QB again, approaching him from behind, when I get pushed, I was basically mid-stride my back foot was about to leave the grass. I go straight down on my right knee cap. It was the size of a grapefruit by the time I got to the sideline.


    But it's really a minor injury. The athletic trainer wouldn't let me play on it, and since the season was almost over she said she wouldn't advise getting it drained because it's an invasive procedure, and I was only a sophmore so it wasn't worth it
    :-\

    The bursa is intended to protect the knee cap from shattering, it's basically a cushion. So it's really not that important, it's just there for protection.

    Kind of like Bullet Proof vests for cops aren't that important they're just there for protection.
    ;D
    Well it's not going to stop them from playing. The reason it stopped me was because I was a HS sophmore, the JV season was over, and I wasn't paid to play, so there was no sense in risking it.

    And it's not that important compared to a vessel that provides blood to your calf muscle ;D

    Thanks for the background my friend.

    I for one am getting a bit of unease here with respect to injuries.
    For not hitting as you would normally expect in camp, we sure have a rash of little dings like this going on.

    You missed the infected part of my post, Brian's had the varicose vein since high school and many people do have them removed and there are newer treatments.
    They can also be quit painful and but complications are rare, my wife has some minor issues with them in her legs.
    Infections can go from minor and spread into tricky and life threating issues in short order, my father in law had an infection spread to his lungs and he was gone in about 48 hours.

    That is correct.

    I'm from Westfield, I knew there were a few guys from Jersey on here so I figured I'd throw a name out there


    And I did not miss the infection part Greg. The fact that doctors know he has the infection really removes all fear from my mind. Unless they're withholding serious information, it's nothing some simple anti-biotics should clear right up.

    I wasn't aware Robison had varicose veins, I admit I didn't actually read the article, so I assume from the doctor's quote "has to get worked on" was worse than it really is. Lots of people do have varicose veins, and they are in fact not a very big deal. They're more of a cosmetic issue than anything, but can also signal that there are other circulatory system problems, but that's usually not the case.

    It sucks for Robison, but the good news is it's only a 2-3 week down time.

    Re: Robison possibly needs surgery

    This hopefully will not hurt us too much. He will miss some valuable time in preparation and getting better in non-passing situations. But as a whole, should be back and ready to go in plenty of time.

    He should be back for the start of the season, so this is not as bas as it could be.
