This is just one of those questions .

Last series , end of the game against the Titans .

Brooks goes down hard and looks to be favoring something on his right shoulder , I remember he sent one into the turf short hopping it to the receiver later .

Hate to say it but at this point I was really not paying much attention .

Did anyone else see anything like this on the last series .

I noticed that as well. In fact, I don\'t think Aaron completed another pass after he was tackled on the 10 yard run. I couldn\'t tell if he was favoring his hand or shoulder but he was definitely in pain. After that, all his passes were horrible as far as accuracy and zip.

Someone else posted this in another thread too. I didn\'t notice it though. I was too pissed off with losing.

1st thing I thought was Oh, no, its his right shoulder.
Then he threw the one-hopper.
I haven\'t heard anything else about it yet.

Hopefully it might just be a stinger on the right side .

Short of total amputation of the right arm , I do not think Haslett will let any other info out of the Saints camp .

Looked strange at the time , thought it would have gotten more attention ...

I brought this up in my Odds and Ends of the titans game. Glad to see someone else saw it too. It looked like Brooks was afraid to show any concern for his shoulder.

When he took the second big hit where he was sandwiched it was very obvious the shoulder was hurting. He never grabbed it but you could tell he was wanting to. I can\'t believe no one in the press brought this up.

I saw the hit and wondered at the time if he had re-injured his shoulder but was hoping he is OK. Regardless of anyones opinion on the Jake and Aaron debate I hate to see anyone injured. If he was to reinjure himself we don\'t have a good backup to go too. So its important that Brooks remains healthy.

i saw it as well, i thought he was holding his shoulder though, did anyone see that? I sure hope he isn\'t injured. our team wouldn\'t even possibly be a playoff contender if he was.

That\'s what New England said when Bledsoe went down... and the Rams about Warner... and Seattle about Dilfer... and the Eagles about McNabb.... and Carolina about Delhomme... HA HA, yeah that last one was a joke.

Haz-matic won\'t care one lick on whether Brooks is healthy or not.
He\'s hung his coaching reputation on an odd belief that this kid is the real deal, kind of like any number of people used to do with Jeff George.

Even if Brooks lost the arm on a swamp tour, Haz-matic would say, \"He\'s just as dangerous with one arm...Haven\'t you seen The Fugitive?\" :casstet:
