Face Bone Connected To Ankle Bone & Other Caps Injuries

DC Sports Nexus ---- Tuesday, October 25, 2011

By now you probably know that Mike Green twisted his ankle on Saturday night but continued to play, and has been limping this week. His agent told the Washington Post. Um, why is the agent saying and not the player. I hate when that happens. (Peyton Hillis)

"Apparently, the injury occurred on the same play as when he was hit in the jaw by the puck..." -Washington Post

This is interesting considering the face and the ankle are pretty much far from each other. Let me double check. Yep, my ankle is way down there. This must be the same thing Lebron James has when he gets hit in the side and holds his face like he was punched.

That does make me wonder about hockey players and the upper/lower body injuries. I think I was wrong in thinking that injuries should be more specific. I think hockey players may actually only have ONE body, and pretend to have TWO body sections so people don't catch on to the fact that they are aliens from another planet. (Yes I realize it was not directly caused by a puck hitting his face)

In other Caps injury news, Jay Beagle, who has been out for several games after being punched in the face, says he doesn't think he has a concussion. However, he still doesn't practice or play, and fat lips don't keep players out...so...What do you think is wrong Jay Beagle? "lots of doctor stuff". Check out the interview with Beagle here.

Sidenote: There is a lot of s' talking about Green on Twitter. Whats the deal?

There are two kinds of Caps fans: Those who hate Player A and those who love Player A. Over the last several years Mike Green has been Player A a lot.

e.g. "Sure Green can score, but when is he going to start playing defense like we pay him for?"

I think it's safe to say that 52 is out there playing the best he can, which happens to be a hell of a lot better than the people s' talking will ever play.
