    Somebody already mentioned Tom Brady walking off the field after his injury. I guess they just don't know for sure until an MRI is done. I guess if the player feels he can walk off, then they let him. But yeah, I agree that they should be more careful and not let a player walk off. Wasn't it Warren a few years ago that tried to walk off and his leg just buckled? Probably made his injury much worse than it was. Besides being really gross to watch!

    Re: Lefty Injured

    there are different degrees of torn ligaments and what not

    some may need the playuer carted off, some may be able to walk off the field

    all pretty much need surgery

    The announcers mentioned "a sprain of some type" so I suppose that is at least somewhat promising.

    However, we won't know for sure until the MRI results come back.

    a sprain is a stretch to a ligament or tendon though.

    Byron Leftwich Out With Left Knee Injury

    Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich is reportedly on the way to a Pittsburgh hospital to get an MRI after he injured his left knee in the second quarter of the team's preseason game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Leftwich threw an 18-yard pass to rookie Emmanuel Sanders before being knocked off his feet as running back Mewelde Moore attempted to block safety Marcus Hudson. The play occurred with 10:25 left in the second quarter Thursday night.

    Leftwich was examined by team doctors on a stretcher behind the Steelers' bench, then limped into a nearby tunnel that leads to the locker room.
