Andy Reid spoke about the shoulder injury to Donovan McNabb, and he made it pretty clear that McNabb’s injury is no big deal. Here is what he had to say:
Slight shoulder tendinitis. That is nothing major, and for most players is not even news worthy. For Donovan the lightning rod of criticism, this injury becomes a head line on Sports Center. “McNabb Hurt Again” was what scrolled across the screen, and it was portrayed as being something serious. Then after they show the clip of Andy Reid(above), they go on to show every injury McNabb has had during his career.
This is very typical of ESPN. They like to make misleading headlines, and then harp on the negative that has happened to McNabb in the past regarding his health. It must be a slow news time, because I have never seen a story about tendinitis being so big ever.
The fact is Donovan McNabb has a very minor injury, and he will be fine come training camp. The best thing for him now is rest, and there is no surgery involved. He will get some treatment to his shoulder and be fine. There really is nothing else to say on the matter.
I have heard a lot of Eagles fans worried about this injury, and even questioning if McNabb is hurt worse than thought. I am telling you now do not worry. 5ive is just being shut down because Andy is being ‘super cautious’ with it, and he will be back in no time. This is a nothing injury that you should not be concerned about.
When one of McNabb’s body parts breaks, tears, or sprains then you should worry. Right now all is well in Eagle land.
