BOSTON - Surgeons successfully repaired a torn tendon in Sen. John Kerry's right shoulder yesterday, discharging the presumptive Democratic nominee to convalesce at home. Kerry tore the tendon connected to his right-shoulder muscle in January while bracing himself as his campaign bus suddenly stopped. In addition to that 3/4 -inch tear, surgeons also discovered a small tear in a right-biceps tendon. He was under general anesthesia in the 45-minute procedure. Emerging from sedation at Massachusetts General Hospital, Kerry quipped, "I hope I didn't reveal any state secrets," according to his surgeon.

Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said Sunday that the team's medical staff believes he tore his left Achilles tendon early in the second quarter of the team's 37-34 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The 11th-year veteran suffered the injury on a play that occurred away from the ball. He said he believed his foot was stepped on as he ran. Immediately after the play, Hall lay, writhing in pain, near the right side of the field, the opposite side of the field from where Eagles running back Darren Sproles had been tackled.

The Orioles lost their primary starting-rotation insurance Friday afternoon when veteran left-hander Johan Santana tore his left Achilles tendon in Sarasota, Fla., ending his 2014 season. At 35, Santana's playing future also may be in jeopardy "I know the rehab is significant for these tendon injuries, and we'll have to get with him and speak to him," Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said. "But he won't be able to pitch for the Orioles this season. " Santana, a two-time American League Cy Young Award winner with the Minnesota Twins, in 2004 and 2006, had been rehabilitating from his second surgery on his left shoulder in a three-year span, and was on the verge of returning to the majors.

BOSTON - The blood on Curt Schilling's sock should have been a giveaway. But even if the New York Yankees or the rest of America had known about his surgical procedure last Tuesday, they would have been hard-pressed to believe it. One day before taking the mound for Game 6 of the American League Championship Series, Schilling had sutures sewn into his right ankle as a last-ditch solution to fix a dislocated tendon. After hearing the details, the medical community was stunned. Boston Red Sox physician Dr. Bill Morgan had practiced the procedure on cadavers before performing it on Schilling.

A magnetic resonance imaging on outfielder Marty Cordova's right elbow has revealed a torn flexor tendon, which most likely ends his career with the Orioles and would require another surgery if he wants to continue playing. Team physician Dr. Charles Silberstein will consult with Dr. Charles Yocum, who examined Cordova last week, but the injury has been identified. Cordova, 34, was shut down at extended spring training because of pain in the elbow area. He was swinging a bat as part of his rehabilitation from ligament-reconstructive surgery last year, but still couldn't play the outfield.

Orioles first baseman David Segui said yesterday that he has a torn tendon in his left wrist, which will likely require surgery and could keep him out of the lineup for six to eight weeks. Segui suffered the injury while sliding into home plate April 26 at Kansas City. He missed three games, then returned to the lineup for three games, but has not played since going 2-for-4 against the Royals on Thursday night. After undergoing a magnetic resonance imaging exam and receiving a cortisone shot Saturday, Segui is scheduled to be re-examined today.

GAITHERSBURG - The line between elation and despair is a rust-colored scar, the length and width of a ballpoint pen, that runs from Courtney Kupets' heel to her calf. In June, Kupets was on top as the 2003 U.S. all-around women's gymnastics champion. Now, the 17-year-old is pushing herself through the grind of rehabilitation, trying to prepare for the U.S. championships and Olympic trials in June. "I have plenty of time from my point of view," says Kupets, who sandwiches a full day of classes at Gaithersburg High School between grueling exercise and physical therapy sessions.

Barry came to me recently complaining he'd experienced dizziness upon standing up quickly after a workout. He couldn't understand how this could happen; he is a well-conditioned, healthy athlete.Since his cardiogram and physical examination were normal, his diagnosis was orthostatic hypotension, or low blood pressure occurring as you stand up from a sitting position. Although the condition can be alarming, it is usually harmless. Surprisingly, being in good physical condition increases your chance of developing orthostatic hypotension.

Phil Castronova, who tore his left Achilles tendon during pre-game warm-ups before Johns Hopkins' annual rivalry game with Loyola on April 27, is expected to return in time for next season. Coach Dave Pietramala said the university's doctors and trainers have assured him and the junior short-stick defensive midfielder that he should be able to rehabilitate his leg and be ready to play in 2014. “Our medical staff has told us that he will be available to us full go and healthy - barring any major setbacks - for the spring,” Pietramala said.

Brian Roberts, who played in just 115 games the previous three seasons because of various injuries, was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, three games into 2013, with what the Orioles are calling a strained right hamstring. The second baseman is expected to miss three to four weeks - an encouraging development considering the 35-year-old Roberts had to be carried off the field in the ninth inning Thursday when he grabbed his leg after stealing second base at Tropicana Field.

What do you call a horse who stops and sights his target - the racetrack - before a workout? Target Sighted, of course. And to exercise rider Molly Moran, who arrives early to wait with the horse for the Laurel Park track to open for training at 5:30 a.m. each day, the moniker couldn't be more fitting. "It's his trademark," said Moran, who has been working the 6-year-old for trainer Fran Campitelli for the past four years. "He likes to be the first one out, and he likes to stand and look around.

A generous amount of doubt surfaced regarding the effectiveness of the Ravens pass rush due to the continuing absence of outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, but no one can blame Haloti Ngata for not doing his part. This season, the 6-foot-4, 330-pound defensive tackle is tied with inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe for the team lead in sacks with 2½ and is tied for fourth in tackles with 16.  Ngata, 28, opened 2012 with two sacks in a Week 1 44-13 rout of the Cincinnati Bengals and split a sack with Ellerbe in Sunday night's 31-30 win against the New England Patriots.

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, who partially tore his right Achilles tendon in late April, has denied an ESPN report that he sustained the injury while playing basketball in Arizona. He claims the injury occurred during a conditioning drill. Either way, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said that at this point, the cause is “not relevant.” “That's not a conversation we're even having,” Harbaugh said Wednesday at the team's voluntary organized team activity. “It's not relevant to anything or has anything to do with what we're trying to accomplish.

Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, underwent successful surgery on his torn Achilles tendon Tuesday afternoon, but his availability for the 2012 season remains a significant question mark. The surgery was performed by noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte,N.C. "After some recovery time, [Suggs] will begin the process of rehabbing the area," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement released by the team Tuesday night.

There has been a lot of speculation that Ravens Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs injured his Achilles tendon while playing basketball. Suggs has denied that it happened that way, but who cares? If that tendon was tight and going to tear, it made no difference if he was playing basketball, wrestling, practicing karate or running sprints. I've known a lot of men who have ruptured their Achilles tendon, and some were just walking and it popped. I've been covering pro sports since 1987 and don't know of many 29-year-olds like Suggs who suffered the injury at such an early age. Former Ravens center-guard Wally Williams suffered the same injury, and he was simply stretching and doing some light jogging over at the training complex during an offseason.
