That being said....it could be a "volar plate" injury, but that would be much more rare, but admittedly an injury that he should be able to keep playing without any long term consequences.....
I am not doubting your opinion I just don't understand rushing him back in? I know Zids is a great PP specialist but Weber didn't look to bad offensively. Give Zid a couple days to heal then send Weber back.
