    NFL | MRI results should not affect A. Branch's playing career

    NFL | MRI results should not affect A. Branch's playing career
    Fri, 27 Apr 2007 08:52:17 -0700

    John Murphy, of Yahoo! Sports, reports medical tests performed on Michigan DT Alan Branch (shin) should not overly impact his future playing career in the National Football League. MRI results have showed little black marks on Branch's leg. However, the marks are likely related to shin splints Branch battled earlier in his collegiate career. Sources at Michigan indicated that Branch indeed battled shin splints, but never missed any game time because of it and that they later subsided once his weight and conditioning improved. According to Dr. Jason Decker, a graduate of Texas A&M's medical school, proper treatment for shin splints can either be rest, rehab or even an analysis of the type of shoes worn by the player. Decker added that athletes, including football, baseball and tennis players, are likely to have some form of shin splints or markings on their MRI's.

    I just not that sold on Branch, I've read too many comparisons to Kennedy.

    This is a problem as far as I'm concerned.:x

    "Should not" isn't good enough for me.
