It’s high noon...

Barry Sanders makes appearance on CFB150:

In honor of the 150th anniversary of college football, ESPN is producing a series of specials on the sport. It features one of Oklahoma State own Barry Sanders. In this clip he talks about how he modeled his game after Tony Dorsett. It’s awesome to see one of the GOATs explain his game.

Emmanuel Ogbah out for the year:

Arrowhead Pride is reporting the former Oklahoma State defensive standout Emmanuel Ogbah is out for the season after tearing his pectoral muscle in Sunday’s Chiefs game.

In a non-professional athlete, this is not a problem that often needs surgical intervention. It simply scars down, and with time and rehab, normal function can be regained fairly easily.

In NFL players, it depends on a couple of factors: player position and extent of damage. Some positions that do not do a ton of push-pull mechanics, such as wide receiver and defensive back, can get by without surgery and simply rehab their way through if appropriate.

Linemen, however, are typically not that fortunate. The forces and demands required for the position almost always dictate a surgical repair. Consider someone trying to hold back or push with all their force without their prime mover/stabilizer. I have not personally seen a lineman with a pec tear that played without surgery.

Potential timetable

If repair is indicated for Ogbah, the procedure is fairly simple and straightforward. Simple anchors to re-attach the tendon to bone or surgical suturing the tendon back together.

Rehab time period is typically four or five months, barring no setbacks and is obviously position-dependent, but these usually go very smoothly.

Should this athlete require surgical intervention, I would expect him to be fully ready for training camp next year. {Arrowhead Pride}
