Benson Hurt

No full news yet. He hurt his shoulder and was carted off the field tonight. Xrays due tomorrow. Could just be a nerve stinger or a seperation or it could be much worse.

Keep your fingers crossed. If this is a broken bone we lose a good offensive weapon for most of the season.

X-Rays came back negative so Benson should be all right soon. He is listed as day to day which means probably 1-2 weeks. Very good news!

Yeah I saw he was going to miss the first pre-season game most likely. This is a relief -- but up until those X-Rays came back I was ecstatic that we didn't trade Jones for Lelie.

I bet most of vet team doesn't like Benson. Jones was the workhorse and they probably give Benson a pounding for getting the job handed down.

Definately good news on the negative x-rays, but shoulder problems can be chronic...let's hope he fully recovers and isn't still dealing with this in November.

Good news on Benson. I heard that Kurt Kittner twisted his ankle carrying groceries to an old lady's car. He should be ok by the regular season opener though

JoJo, you should register a site for the Kurt Kittner fan club.

I saw the video of Benson getting hurt a bunch of times and it looks like it was just a 'freak' accident. Benson has been getting hit hard all camp, but this injury was not the result of a hard it.
