Tyler Buchner injury update

Freeman said at a press conference Monday that Buchner suffered a grade 5 sprain in his AC joint in his left shoulder (which he doesn’t cast). The injury was serious enough to require surgery and she should have kept him outside for about four months – around the beginning of January.

according to UCHealth.coma joint sprain can be described as an “injury to the acromioclavicular (AC) muscle … where the scapula (shoulder) meets the collar bone (clavicle).

“The injury usually occurs in the form of a sprain, which causes the tendon to be forced apart by some kind of strong, sharp trauma.”

in addition to, Shoreline Orthopedics A grade 5 AC joint sprain is defined as:

It involves the rupture of the joint covering (capsule) and the ligaments that connect the scapula (shoulder) and collarbone (clavicle), and the end of the collar bone (clavicle) through the covering of muscle (fascia) above it. It results in a large, permanent bump over the top of the shoulder at the AC joint. The pain usually lasts 4 to 8 weeks, but chronic discomfort is common. Surgery is often recommended.
