Report: Chad Pennington out for the year

By Cindy Boren

Chad Pennington will miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury that could end his career, a source close to Pennington has told ESPN.

Pennington, who has three times had surgery on the shoulder of his throwing arm and twice has been the NFL Comeback Player of the Year, only last week was named the Miami Dolphins starter. He was hurt on the first play of his first start since Week 3 of last season and left the game after the next play.

Henne also was injured in the game.

What a shame - he's such a class act.

While his propensity for injuries will be a major concern going forward, there can be no doubting his heart. Here's hoping he wins comeback player of the year an unprecedented third time.

My idea still stands. Instead giving small fines to these thugs and that really doesn't work. Try this - They put someone out for the week - suspended for the week.
Out for 6+ games - same. Career ending hit - end of you stupid thug career.
Put a couple of these little punks on the unemployement line and see the rest of the league clean up their act.

I've known Chad for about 10 years (he and my nephew played together at Marshall).
He's a class act. I wish him the best.

=================================

So your plan is to fine defensive players for tackling? You do know that they play tackle football right? Chad Pennington was injured in a routine tackle because his shoulder is injury prone. Now the Dolphins have to pay him $300k for 2 plays worth of work. Not bad money if you can get it.

All indications are that he is a good dude. There are a lot of good dudes and bad dudes that end their careers in football due to injury. He is no different.

Did I mention Chad? But it doesn't matter until some thug takes out your SaveYourButt player of the year - then lets hear the whining.
You have people like Steelers Harrison saying he wants to hurt people. Kind of tells it where he is coming from.
