The injury that St. Louis Cardinals star pitcher Adam Wainwright suffered in the bullpen during spring training isn't just a big league problem. As baseball season approaches, Little Leaguers and other school-age players should be aware that they can damage their elbows. Dr. Anand M. Murthi, attending orthopedic surgeon and chief of shoulder and elbow surgery at Union Memorial Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, explains the surgery that is sometimes necessary for repairs. It's called ulnar collateral ligament (UCL)

Wilcox, 30, who played on Maryland's 2001-02 national championship team, injured his thumb Tuesday against the Bulls and had sat out the past two games. "Chris is out; he's out for a while," Rivers said Sunday. "I don't know how long, but the first report I got was three to four weeks. " Wilcox is averaging 4.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 13.3¿minutes per game.

The Orioles will be without left-hander Randy Wolf for the remainder of the season. Wolf was placed on the 60-day disabled with a tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow before Wednesday's game. The 36-year-old Wolf will likely need a second Tommy John surgery to pitch again. The prognosis on Wolf, who was signed Aug. 31 to add left-handed bullpen depth, didn't appear to be promising Tuesday when manager Buck Showalter wouldn't discuss the results of an MRI performed that morning, only saying that Wolf would speak with team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens and Dr. Lewis Yocum, who performed Tommy John surgery on Wolf's elbow in 2005.  “We'll see what Randy and the doctors want to do,” Showalter said before Wednesday's game.

ASHBURN, Va. - The Washington Redskins will have quarterback Brad Johnson back for Sunday's crucial game with the New York Giants at FedEx Field.

The Redskins went 1-2 under backup Jeff George, including a 23-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The loss dropped the Redskins (7-5) a game behind the Giants (8-4) and 1 1/2 games behind the Eagles (9-4) in the NFC East. If the playoffs were to start today, the Redskins would not qualify.

College Park -- Maryland running back Josh Allen took a handoff from backup quarterback Jordan Steffy, ran about two steps and was driven face-first into the Terps' practice field by a pile of defenders. It was a feeling he has sorely missed. For the first time since his junior year, Allen's No. 33 jersey was not covered by one of the yellow pinnies injured football players wear to prevent being hit. Allen, who dislocated his left knee and tore his anterior collateral ligament and lateral collateral ligament in 2004, is one of three key players who missed last season with torn ACLs, but should be difference-makers for the Terps this fall.

If Vince Young isn't sure he wants to play football anymore, he didn't show it yesterday. The Tennessee Titans quarterback reported to work, watched part of practice with a wrap around his sprained left knee and avoided reporters wanting to talk about his mother's comments indicating he doesn't want to play because of the negativity he has faced since being booed heavily during a 17-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. His coach and teammates are sticking with their quarterback and the official story that whatever happened that prompted coach Jeff Fisher to alert police to help locate Young and check on his emotional well-being was just a misunderstanding.

SEATTLE -- Closer Gregg Olson will travel to Los Angeles today to have his sore elbow examined by orthopedic specialist Dr. Frank Jobe.Olson underwent extensive testing earlier this week to determine the cause of persistent soreness in the area. The injury has been diagnosed as a strained ulnar collateral ligament -- and club officials said nothing in the test results indicated otherwise -- but no one wants to take any chances with the most productive young relief pitcher in history.The second opinion was requested by Olson and agent Jeff Moorad, who felt there was nothing to lose by taking the extra precaution with Olson already on the disabled list.

Now that the weather is cooperating, I've been jogging outside and playing a lot of tennis. Yesterday I was on the tennis court when the outside of my left knee, on the back of my leg, began really hurting. What happened? "Pain in the back of the knee reflects what's happening in the front of the knee," says Dr. Michael Mont, director of the Center for Joint Preservation & Reconstruction at the Rubin Institute for Orthopedics at Sinai Hospital. You may have injured your lateral collateral ligament - LCL - which provides stability to the outer part of the knee.

Ask Ralph Henry about the day his promising football career hit a major snag, and you'll hardly recognize the man who answers. Navy's soft-spoken junior defensive end, usually so quick with a smile, will furrow his brow and shake his head, losing himself in deep thought before answering in a tone painted with frustration. "That day," he says, "really burst my bubble." A year ago, things could have hardly been better. A 1998 graduate of Eastern Tech High School, Henry looked full of promise coming into the 2001 season, his sophomore year.

Chris Hoiles still gets his treatments three times a day, still attaches the brace to his right knee and awaits another game to pass him by. And while he's a long way from returning to the Orioles' lineup, he has taken some positive steps since going on the disabled list with a partial tear of the medial collateral ligament -- even if they are accompanied by a slight limp."
