I popped out my shoulder in a playoff softball tourney sliding head first into second. Yep, I'm that guy. The second baseman was like, dude, your shoulder is by your ear... We had no subs, so I used my off hand to help rotate my dead arm in a Pete Townsend-like windmill. It went right back in. I would like to think I have that Knott-like mentality, but I wasn't going to be hitting others after my ordeal. He had four more tackles the other night.
I see the big issue with Knott is that his shoulder will pop out without even trying. I think for years my shoulder would pop out with not much trying. Kind of like Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon. Once the tendons get stretched/torn, it takes time to rehab and strengthen the area. I found out after my son was born that my rotator was torn. I assume with his healthcare they will operate and rehab him to get him to full strength next season. Unfortunately, like Rhoads said, I would hate to be Knott when he turns 40. I'm 41 now and looking to move into a ranch home so I don't have to do stairs.
Toughness is great when you're 20, but it's awful when you double the age. Either way I'm so proud to have guys like Knott representing me and my Cyclones!

Just last week it shifted a bit and my bite is off now. Went to the doctor and 2 oral surgeons and none of them have a real answer.
What concerns me is that Knott plays with such reckless abandon that he could end up being like Bob Sanders from Iowa -- with his body breaking down.
I love his toughness, though.
Just think all this from a guy who wasn't offered a schollie by CPR's predecessor. It pained me to see that the Auburn investigation turned up nothing in the form of cheating. REBECY will likely have to remove Chiz's **** from his mouth to respond.
You put Jake and Jack Knott in the the game and once...WOW.
I had a friend and I saw her dislocate her shoulder once and put it back into to place herself, so I know it's very possible. However, it's my modus operandi not to believe guys who claim they dislocated a part of their body and put it back into place themselves, unless it's a person with a chronic problem who knows what they're doing.
I'm not believing it without at least some visual evidence.
