Anatomy Lesson: Dr. Schwartz Explains Doc Halladay's Shoulder Issues

Anatomy Lesson: Dr. Schwartz Explains Doc Halladay's Shoulder Issues

You've likely already seen Roy Halladay discuss the procedure he will undergo in the next week or so, but if you're like me, you probably didn't understand all of the medical jargon involved. Comcast SportsNet's Lisa Hillary caught up with Dr. Mark Schwartz who explained much of the anatomy of the shoulder we're dealing with. Halladay had mentioned being able to return in as little as three months if all goes smoothly. Dr. Schwartz seems to think that's a bit optimistic, with throwing perhaps being able to get underway in three months in a best case scenario, but something closer to four months for actual pitching. And that's if there are zero hiccups and everything looks good once they open him up.

If Halladay has surgery in the next week and returns in four months, that'd leave two or three turns through the rotation come September.

Safe to say I'm not as optimistic as Doc. But I certainly won't doubt his rehab efforts. Just one of those "expect the worst, hope for the best" deals.

Brooks' 4 TDs leads Penn by Lehigh 65-47 in 60th meeting

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.

Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.

Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.

Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.

Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
