Welcome to my Super Bowl weekend edition of The 10! Maybe you are reading these articles Saturday morning, but you have what seems like an eternity during the pregame show to catch up on these sports medicine and other articles too!
Enjoy the game Sunday! It seems like every year I end up tweeting about an injury or two during the Super Bowl, and many others do too. If you see a player get hurt during the game this year, touch base with me on Twitter about it. I’ll share my thoughts about it too, and we can get a spontanteous tweetchat going!
