Making sense of the Chiefs’ injury updates from Wednesday

Editor’s note: Kansas City Chiefs head athletic trainer and VP of sports medicine and performance Rick Burkholder provided updates on Eric Berry Kansas City Chiefs Hats , Daniel Sorensen and Byron Pringle on Wednesday. Our in-house medical expert, Aaron Borgmann, provides further interpretation here.S Eric BerryNot a lot to interpret here. Seems as if there have been good days with progress based upon what we have been told. Every injury has its own characteristics and heel injuries can be tricky. Based upon what we have been told, it sounds as if things are moving in the right direction and we may see the player practice at some point soon, but as with anything, every day brings new challenges and hurdles to jump through.S Daniel Sorensen As we discussed at the time of surgery, the minimum time to expect bone healing is six weeks, and that’s what we see here. Since it has been stated that he has been placed on IR Kansas City Chiefs Womens Hoodie , the NFL mandates that this designation requires the player misses eight games, as was eluded to by general manager Brett Veach earlier as well. That’s not to say that the player cannot be deemed ready prior to that, but by rule, he cannot play before that. Don’t expect to see this player prior to that mark. If he is doing well, expect to see him rejoin practice at that point and re-acclimate to those activities before being cleared to play. More decisions will be made at that time.S Byron PringleIt’s always an interesting case when you go looking for one specific injury and find another one—in this case, searching for the degree of hamstring injury and finding and unrelated medical situation, an inguinal hernia. A fairly common condition in the public, less so in my experience in athletes Womens Customized Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , inguinal hernias come in various types and forms and timelines for recovery vary based upon the procedure performed, so we will have to wait for more information on this condition going forward. We can assume from the quotes made earlier today that the hamstring condition is considered milder in nature, but combined with the hernia, enough to warrant IR time.Aaron Borgmann is the founder of Borgmann Rehab Solutions.

You had a choice on that. You could just take him to the ground, or pick him up and slam him. So they said, ‘OK, don’t slam him. That’s a penalty.’ This one is really hard. I don’t know exactly how to tell him to take his weight off the guy from the position he was coming in that situation.”Whether you like Sutton or not, it’s hard to disagree with his point of view here.Is this going to be the new standard?A sack that just about anyone would previously have called a textbook defensive play now results in 15 yards and a first down for the offense?Sutton reminded reporters that during training camp, he was more worried about this new rule than he was about the new helmet rule that has had so much press attention so far.“I’m not really sure how it’s going to play out. When we had the officials in, I asked, ‘Did anybody think about trying to tackle Ben Roethlisberger?’ It’s hard enough to get him down with all of your weight. But to say , ‘I’m going to slide off to the side and not do it,’ is really hard. I just think it’s a hard rule. I think it’s hard on the officials. I really do. I think we all know what the intent is. We’re not looking to slam this guy in the dirt, but there are some times that I just don’t know what you can do from a physical standpoint to change that — without just stopping completely.”Even if you think — as some Chiefs fans do — that Sutton is a doddering old fool who should be shown the door, you’ll probably be right here with him on this one.It’s one thing to have a new rule that promotes player safety.But it’s quite another to have one whose application is going to be almost impossible to predict, and it will almost certainly drastically change the way pass rushers can play the game.
