  • This Grudz Injury Takes Me By Surprise

    I never knew anything about this.

    It is something that was not disclosed, or have I just not heard about the seriousness of it?
    When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

    this morning was the first I heard of it. And he's in the hospital?

    tlr said he had a bruise and it opened up a little because of sliding and things and it kept reopening and got infected.

    not weird that it happened, but weird that this is the first I heard of it. I figured I missed something along the way.

      Exactly. Same here.

      That's exactly what I was thinking.

      I hate to say these things, more people will jump on me about it, but this is just another of a pattern of things, it seems. Now, sure, this could have been a surprise all around, but then again maybe it wasn't.

        What kind of infection is this?

            While Walker's condition has improved, Grudzielanek is experiencing increased difficulty with an infected left knee that is being treated with antibiotics. Grudzielanek left the park Saturday to be examined, admitting that pain in the knee may sideline him for a handful of games. "We need to get a handle on it," he said. -- PD, 8/21/05 edition

              At least that seems to be a relatively minor injury, and not a 'lengthy stay on the DL" type of injury.

                  ACL reconstruction is far different than having an infection in the knee.

                  W/ an ACL reconstruction, they cut it open, fix it up, seal it back and you're on the road to rocovery.

                  The "fixing" takes about three hours.

                  W/ this infection, it may not be "fixed" and ready to rehab for a lot longer than three hours.

                    You ever had an ACL reconstruction? It may seem like 'it's fixed', but trust me, it doesn't feel like it for a long time, if ever....

                      An infection "in" the knee can be an internal infection related to structural damage and can take a very long time to heal.

                      An infection related to a bruise or contusion on the surface of the knee should be treatable with antibiotics and rest to allow for normal healing. It sounds like this is the kind of injury Grudz has, and the hospitalization sounds like an aggressive IV antibiotic treatment to get him back playing asap.
