    You are correct.

    Jackson's blood vessel damage and resulting bone necrosis were a result of the dislocation. Jackson's original injury was only a partial dislocation (called a subluxation). Blood vessel and nerve damage are not atypical in violent hip dislocations (but for some unknown reason blood supply damage is more common in partial dislocations than in full dislocations).

    I don't know the particular nature of Pitta's injury but let's hope he has no such problems.

    Re: Pitta injury

    My son is in college to eventually become a physical therapist. He seems to think a hip dislocation will be a 2-4 month issue. If he is correct, Dennis won't be catching passes in week 2. I imagine there are different degrees of separation and lets hope Pitta's is less severe.

    The tight end will factor in as a prominent part of our offense. I think we have enough TE talent to overcome this set back.

    Speedy recovery Dennis Pitta

    That is unfortunate as he had the best hands on the team and the best chemistry with Joe. Dickson certainly has the ability to fill that void but the question is will he? Maybe they'll sign Shiancoe or Clark in the meantime. I think Furstenburg has potential for sure, but doubtful he's going to be a guy that is ready to contribute how a TE is expected to contribute in this offense come week one.

    Re: Pitta injury

    I would be a little surprised if they bring in a veteran. They still have Bajema, Furst, Juice, and Dickson (off the top of my head) and it's early in camp. Let's see what they've got.

    If the injury turns out to need more time, then plan B might be in order but not now IMO

    Pitta is having surgery right now according to Aaron Wilson

    The good thing about this is that it happen early in camp, 2nd we got talent in Juice and now this Furstenburg kid making some noise, we still got Dickson if he focus can be a very good TE so we are not at a loss, bring back leach and lets roll!

    The fact that he needs surgery slightly worries me. Even then my 80 year old grandfather broke his hip which needed surgery, and he was back up and moving in about 3 weeks.

    That's what. I'm hearing...I think 2 months and missing 3 games is likely the best scenario here.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    take it for what it's worth...

    2m What can be concluded by Dennis Pitta undergoing surgery immediately is that this is going to be a long-term injury, could be months, plural

    Re: Pitta injury

    Who said it was a 6 week injury?

    These type injuries are rare so there is no previous timetable to go by so its almost Pitta's case and thats it so if he heals quick he is on the field quick but there is no set timetable for this injury, does that mean it is ultra serious, NO.

    A torn ACL or Achilles is way more serious are more common so just because this is not a common injury does not mean it is a total serious injury. Its just hard with all the pads and you basically have to land a certain way for this to happen whereas an ACL tear or other tear can happen in many ways.

    Re: Pitta injury

    If surgery is being performed, that means an attempt to manipulate the ball back into the socket externally was unsuccessful.

    This is generally because there are bone fragments in the socket, or the soft tissue damage is so significant that there isn't really a socket to seat in.

    This means the dislocation is likely at least a type IV.

    In type IV dislocations, Avascular necrosis (bone death and deterioration as a result of insufficient blood supply) rates are about 60%

    Avascular necrosis is what Bo Jackson had.

    I seem to recall from his 30 for 30 it was the other way around. Also, I have to think advances in medicine, even if the same blood issue develops, will mitigate any issue similar to Bo's.

    Regardless, I hope it isn't serious to the point it's a career ender.

    Me too. Surgery though, is not a good sign.
