Ben officially listed as Questionable with shoulder sprain. Specifically an SC Joint issue, as described below.
In Tomlin's weekly presser he said nothing more than it's classified as a shoulder sprain and he is questionable as of now. There are reports that Ben is getting another MRI today but as of now Tomlin was his usual vague self in terms of his status.
What is a sternoclavicular joint injury?
Sternoclavicular (SC) joint injury consists of ligament trauma to the joint connecting the breastbone [sternum] and the collarbone [clavicle]). It is an uncommon injury.
When a ligament is subjected to acute strain, it may either stretch or tear, partially or completely. Such tearing of a ligament is known as a sprain and ranges from microscopic injury to complete disruption. This injury can occur either at its insertion on either bone, but most commonly occurs in its mid-substance. The sprain may result in partial joint displacement (“subluxation”) or complete separation of the joint surfaces (“dislocation”). Displacement can occur either anteriorly (collarbone translates towards the front) or posteriorly (collarbone displaces towards the back).
