twitter updates on todays injuries
jenkins is just a shoulder stinger, says he'll be fine

shapers says "those worrying, ill be ok just a tight hammy"

ivory said he sprained the A/C joint in his left shoulder and that it was separated

x-rays on shockeys ribs were also negative

what's that mean for Ivory? Regardless, glad Reggie is coming back after the bye

if wasnt very clear on whether it was a seperated shoulder or he was referring to the a/c joint. depending on the grade of the seperation it could be 4-6 weeks if its a bad one.

He'll be fine. But I want to comment on how well Julius Jones is playing. Man, he hits the hole quickly and although he doesn't have breakaway speed like Reggie, he is great on passes.

Who knows what will come of PT, but at this point, I could see a rotation of Bush, Jones and Ivory. Mix in PT before the playoffs and we have a nice rotation.

So does that mean I drop Ivory

Bold statement.

JJ = Mike Bell, IMO. Fresh legs and knows Payton's system. PT succeeded in the screen game and did run well last year.

There's more to this injury than we know - that's for sure.

Ha ha. What's your record? Can you afford to stash him on your bench? One good game so far....

Yep. I'm not taking anything away from him. Fresh legs is one thing, but I'm not sure he will supplant PT as the starting RB just yet.

well just for the record i want it to be clear that im just speculating on recovery time. i dont want anyone to think this is what ive heard or anything, i do physical therapy and thats just a guesstimate. i dont want to mislead anyone. like i said it all depends on the grade of the separation. hopefully its nothing too serious.

just want to clear that up folks.

I have been very impressed with Julius Jones. That guy has never been a burner, but he has very good vision and he's pretty explosive. That long run he ripped off yesterday was a good example... saw a hole (thanks OL), made a burst, and took off. Very decisive. I much prefer him over Ladell Betts who couldn't make WVSaint miss in the open field (no offense WVSaint!)
