I couldn't play through mine, too much instability in the joint and knife-like pain if I lifted my arm perpendicular to the ground.
Agree with a whole lot of this.
It depends how much damage is done so we'll have to wait for scans. I've seen guys pop their shoulders and they are right after a week or so. Not pain free but it's an injury you can play through. There are also examples where you could miss up to 3 months because of it.
