Cowboy Has Partially Torn Tricep

Justin Smith has a partially torn left triceps, according to a source with knowledge of the injury. The 49ers defensive end, who was voted to his third straight Pro Bowl on Wednesday, injured his arm on Dec. 16 against the Patriots and has not practiced since. The source spoke about the injury on the condition of anonymity. Smith's injury has been listed as "elbow" on the 49ers' injury reports.

Smith appears to have suffered the injury while pushing off a Patriots offensive lineman in the third quarter. The play was innocuous and similar in nature to the one that ended outside linebacker Parys Haralson's season. Haralson also suffered a torn triceps during a preseason game against the Denver Broncos and was placed on injured reserve.

we ain't winning the SB without Justin Smith.
Well that sucks.
That sucks.
Injury bug kicking us in the nuts right now.

Man this sucks. Says he will try and play through the pain. I hope he can manage. Tough injury though for a guy who pushes for a living
Fundamental breakdown in our assistance coaching. What technique are they showing these guys in that 2 players get the same injury trying the same move?
Smith and the 49ers are hoping he can tolerate the pain enough to be effective during the playoffs
