Packers HC Mike McCarthy announced Jordy Nelson is out for the rest of training camp after undergoing procedure.

I started getting a slight erection until I read training camp.

The belief on Jordy Nelson is he'll be back by the opener. Took a window now to deal with knee, rather than fight it all season.

Jordy Nelson's surgery sounds like a meniscus repair to me.

Oh no. RT @AJCFalcons: #Falcons right tackle Mike Johnson suffers serious leg injury. Carted off, left in ambulance http://shar.es/yvQV4
Eagles WR Arrelious Benn has been diagnosed with a torn left ACL, and is done for the season.


It's the same ACL Benn tore in 2010. It's a career-clouding injury, as the 2010 second-rounder has provided little, if any, impressive tape during his three-year career. Benn wasn't competing for a starting job in Philadelphia, and was going to need an impressive preseason to even crack the 53-man roster. The chronically-injured wideout turns 25 next month.

He was supposed to be having a decent camp, bummer.

Someday soon-

"Spider web silk, the strongest natural fiber known, could possess untapped medical potential in artificial tendons or for regenerating ligaments, scientists now say.

Lewis said researchers at Tufts University in Medford, Mass., have found that spider webs could be used as scaffolds for regenerating ligaments damaged in one of the world's most common knee injuries—ruptured anterior cruciate ligaments, or ACLs. "We're also looking at spider silk in artificial tendons," he said."

"Atlanta Falcons right tackle Mike Johnson suffered a dislocated left ankle and fibula fracture during Tuesday's practice,
Falcons coach Mike Smith said".

Johnson, listed first on the depth chart at his position, was injured on a running play Tuesday. Johnson was carted off the
practice field and onto an ambulance. "He's scheduled to have surgery next week, Smith said".

A league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Johnson is expected to miss the entire season with the injury.
Johnson dropped immediately to ground and rolled over on his back before medical personnel arrived within one minute and
put an air cast on his left leg.
