If he half asses it, he may not cause more damage but won't be as effective.
You gotta remember that the bench press is chest and triceps and lineman mimic this movement a lot on both sides of the front line.
If he has a high pain tolerance and pushes it too hard, then he tears more tissue to the point of no return.
Maybe Justin Smith has a lot of his power from his lower body and can still move bodies that way. Maybe he can limit push/extension movrments of his injured arm. If he does and is effective, he will need his uniform retired ASAP.
It would be LEGENDARY.
You are, of course, right on the money. I don't see how he can do it. Then again, stranger things have happened.
If he pulls it off (effective play) over a span of games, all atheist niner fans should pick a god (s) to pray to just once. If we win a SB behind Cowboys effective play with the injury, the atheist need to go to a local river and get baptized.
This is something you get your popcorn ready and watch in awe if it works or doesn't.
