Plaxico Burress is still trying to hang on to an NFL career and was expected to make the Pittsburgh Steelers roster this year. He had been having a steady training camp so far, but that all ended on Thursday when he tore the rotator cuff in his right shoulder.
An MRI on Wednesday revealed that New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has a small tear in his left shoulder. The 28-year-old reportedly suffered the injury – classified as a torn labrum – late in the regular season and decided to play through it.
Philadelphia Phillies ace Roy Halladay will have arthroscopic surgery to repair a bone spur in his right shoulder.
After two more bad starts, including his most recent in a 14-2 shellacking by the hapless Miami Marlins, Philadelphia Phillies ace Roy Halladay is getting his right shoulder examined in Los Angeles. After the game, Halladay admitted his shoulder had been hurting since April 24. His two subsequent starts were, shall we say, ineffective.
