Justin Mabus was one of two Towson freshmen named to the Colonial Athletic Association's All-Rookie team, joining defenseman Jojo Ostrander when the announcement was made May 4. What's remarkable about that accomplishment is that Mabus earned it despite being hobbled by a groin injury. The midfielder said he injured his groin during the week of preparation leading to the season opener at Jacksonville on Feb. 11. Mabus, who has consulted multiple doctors and plans to undergo a magnetic resonance imaging exam this week, said he thought the pain would eventually face, but it did not. “There were times when I'd come in and I needed to sit out a practice,” he said Tuesday morning.

I'm sure everyone in WWE is breathing a sigh of relief after a magnetic resonance imaging exam revealed that Shawn Michaels' triceps injury is not as serious as first believed. Michaels suffered a small tear of his left triceps and is medically cleared for his match against Chris Jericho at the Unforgiven pay-per-view Sunday. Michaels had said that he was doing the match regardless of the severity of the injury. Had the triceps been fully torn, Michaels was looking at surgery and missing four to six months.

DENVER -- Instead of getting better, as hoped, John Elway's shoulder is getting worse -- as feared. So bad, in fact, that the Denver Broncos quarterback said yesterday that he may not play tomorrow against the New England Patriots.Elway was scheduled to undergo a Magnetic Resonance Imaging examination today, and if the test shows any damage, he may be held out of the game at Mile High Stadium. And, even if he plays, sitting out an entire week is still a possibility if the pain does not subside.

Orioles reliever Jamie Walker will not need surgery on his left elbow, his agent said yesterday. Walker spent the past two days in Birmingham, Ala., getting examined by noted orthopedist Dr. James Andrews. "He had his second appointment with Dr. Andrews today, and Dr. Andrews gave him a clean bill of health," said Phil Tannenbaum, Walker's agent. "He prescribed a little bit of rest and some exercises, and [Walker] should be ready to go for spring training." Walker, 37, who had been one of the most effective situational left-handers in baseball, is coming off perhaps the worst season of his major league career, which spans parts of nine seasons.

Recent studies in Baltimore and Los Angeles offer hope that medical scanning devices can give accurate pictures of breast implants that have ruptured and leaked silicone gel into surrounding tissue.Two techniques, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound, appear to do a good job detecting the most serious )) leaks: those in which gel has seeped outside the capsule of scar tissue that naturally forms around an implant once it is placed inside the breast.They appear less effective in detecting leaks that are contained by the scar-tissue envelope.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - With several of Hayden Penn's competitors for the open rotation spots struggling with injuries or ineffective, the Orioles right-hander's chances to stick with the club get better by the day. Penn turned in three scoreless and one-hit innings in an intrasquad game yesterday despite pitching with a cut on his finger that prevented him from throwing his breaking ball in his final inning of work. It was an encouraging performance for the Orioles' one-time top pitching prospect, who is out of options and might need a solid spring to stay with the organization.
