That is a tough injury especially since that team has little depth. I expect he'll play through it but it's going to be naggin him all season.

he will be back for opening day, it's just a dislocated shoulder. correct me if I'm wrong but I'm sure you just pop those back into place and rest for a bit

looks like I'm wrong, according to this he could be out for 6 weeks although with medical advances it could be shorter

Once the shoulder has been put back in place it is immobilised using a sling. The sling is kept on for about 2 to 3 weeks, during which time it is important that the elbow, wrist and fingers are kept moving to prevent them stiffening up.

Active rehabilitation is started as soon as possible but overhead arm movement and sporting activity should be avoided for at least 6 weeks

Man I know you want players to play hard in the preseason, but he was putting a big hit on a guy returning a INT. Not the kind of play you want your MVP on offense to be attempting in the preseason. Props for playing hard but sometimes you have to think a bit in the preseason. That play could ruin the entire year for the Skins.

this is the big reason I always do leagues that have late drafts. I don't want to get screwed over by one of these injuries.
