Dansby says he has been playing with a torn biceps

C.J. Spiller AP

For the past three weeks, Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby has been listed on the injury report as probable with a biceps injury.  As it turns out, Dansby has a torn biceps.

That’s what Dansby said on his weekly WQAM radio appearance, with Jorge Sedano.

Dansby explained that he’s wearing a large brace that keeps him from raising his arm.  Dansby says he has been playing with it for only three weeks.  Specifically, he says it happened during the second quarter of the Jets game in New York, on October 28.

Each week since then, Dansby has appeared on the injury report.

Dansby also said he has a dislocated finger on the other hand, and that it pops out “every other play.”

He said the pain from preparing to play is worse than the pain he endures while playing, but Dansby scoffed at the idea of sitting out.

Dansby claims it’s healing, and that he could be out of the brace within a week and a half.

“I’m the best,” he said, “that how I feel.  And I’m proving it by doing it with one arm. . . .  Most guys would have sat out.   Most guys would have went and had surgery.”

Dansby pointed out that plenty of guys have played with a torn biceps muscle.  That doesn’t make it any easier, but that’s the challenge he has embraced.

    I guess there are plenty of smarter players too.

    If I tore a biceps, I’d just want to be euthanized. That sounds really painful. Tough dude.

    Dansby, please retire so we can move on from your horrible contract.

    I hope he was using the term “playing” loosely

    Football (hockey even more so) players are warriors..stupid, stupid warriors.

    Thanks for letting us know Karlos…we were all wondering why you can’t seem to hold onto those potential interceptions you’ve been dropping lately, at least your leading the team in tackles.

    These guys that continue to play while injured are idiots. They want to prove they are tough, but after it’s all said and done, they’ll sue the NFL for the permanent problem caused by their own stupidity.

    Who would want to use common sense about thier own health. That could hinder the future lawsuit he is planning once he retires.

    And when he can’t pick up a jug of milk in 10 years, he’s gonna sue the league for letting him play!

    He IS the best…at dropping ints!

    I know we’re being more transparent these days, but you shouldn’t really say things like, “When I wear this brace I can’t lift my arm.”

    I can see passes whizzing by your left ear until you take it off.

    Coincidentally, they have lost every game since the game he got injured. Luckily, when he was supposed injured, they had a 20-0 lead on the Jets. During this 3 game slide, the team has given up some big offensive numbers.

    Just saying….

    I think the entire Miami defense has a torn bicep between the ears…..

    Ouch. Most guys in the league play like this. Most of them don’t hurt to this degree but most of them play through pain. tough Men,

    He never has been able to catch, so who is surprised. At least playing like this he isn’t “acting’ like some of the “girls” out there. It’s his problem not any of ours what he does.
