Falcons Lb Brooks Reed Is Sidelined With A Groin Injury.


Recommended Posts


Falcons LB Brooks Reed is sidelined with a groin injury.



The injury is different than the hamstring ailment that hampered Reed over the offseason. Reed said the injury does not require surgery, and he does not expect it to linger into the season. Reed signed a five-year, $22 million contract with the Falcons in March.

I think Reed "tweeked" his groin in Mini camp. He rested and rehabbed it between the end of mini camp and the start of TC and re-injured it about 11 days ago at the start of TC. It was always a groin injury, but was variously (erroneously) reported as a "Hip" injury, and lately as a Hamstring. These soft tissue injuries are persistent and a training staff has to be careful not to bring a player back too soon.

Reed was on 92.9 yesterday and said it was a groin injury. He also said it's very frustrating because he has had a groin injury in the past that lingered. He didn't mentioned if he missed games from the previous one or what part of the season it happened.

The groin injury with the Texans happened in the Thanksgiving day game in Detroit, 2012? He was covering a receiver down the sideline when he suddenly (untouched) fell to the ground as if he had been shot. He was carted off missed 4 games, came back, played fairly well through pain, and had surgery as soon as the season was over. That groin injury has stayed "Fixed". Now he is bothered by the other side.

It's been a groin injury on 92.9 for as long as I can recall. They just finally spoke directly to him yesterday.. Unless he has more than one groin, it's been the same thing for 3 months. He may want to consider Japanese porn, otherwise.

A person not only has two groins---one left and the other, right---but has at least 4 adductor muscles on each side, any of which may be involved when one referrers to "Groin" injury.

Yup a 'groin' injury is just an easy way to say adductor strain/sprain.

Annoying little muscle thought to stretch out. Hopefully he heals fully before he's put back on the field because it could lead to a tear if it's still tight.

It can also be an adductor muscle tendon torn off the bone, either the Femur or the Pubic bone. Very painful, but repairable by surgery. There's a surgeon in Philly, Dr. Meyers, who has done thousands of these and to whom most professional athletes are referred. Surgery can require 6-8 weeks rehab, and that's not counting the time at the end of rehab to get back in football shape. Arian Foster, RB for the Texans, just went through that kind of surgery.
