It was mentioned a few times on these boards, when the articles were posted (thanks KING), but I forget exactly when it was.

but damn it TOOT TOOT

I broke the good news that day.

In all seriousness, as someone mentioned above once they removed the scar tissue the article stated that they actually saw the nerve ending snap back into place. The impingement was that severe.

Anyway, the reports are that the inprovement that he has experienced already has been 100 times what he has gone through in the last 9 months.

Additionally, someone is getting fired for not suggesting this a whole lot sooner. Not that it changes the teams destiny by any stretch, but there's alot of games that he missed that he should have played in.
