Thise stinks. I go out of town for one of the 17 weeks and everything happens. Tons of upsets, my best WR gets hurt, I traded CHad Johnson for him, my third RB gets pulled and doesn't play much and loses carries to guy that was just picked uop by the Cowboys, I didn't have a chance to change my linup so Rudi Johnson was on my bench, my second pick stinks it up, Henry, and I should have started K-Rob...you know I am doomed. If Harrison is hurt bad my super bowl hopes are done. My WRs have been bad enough.

The educated guess right now (for whatever that's worth) is that he's questionable for next week's game, and we'll probably have to wait until Wednesday for anything more concrete than that...

ESPN News Monday Morning QB will go over the Colts at 1 oclock. They just said they will "talk about Harrison's" injury. Ill post anything they say worthy of note. Man I hope hes not hurt, b/c it could kill my team.

The worst part is I had a trade of Harrison/KRob for Holt that the other owner wanted to do but was out of town. He told me on Sunday he would do it.

Of course he has backed out now.

As per T. Dungy on ESPN News, Harrison is undergoing an MRI this morning. More will be released by tomorrow. He did say though that Marvin felt good coming off the plane last night and that they wouldn't really know anything until he started running on Wednesday or Thursday.

So Im breathing a lot easier because it doesn't sound like its torn. I can handle him being out a week or two, but the season would have killed me.

If anyone else hears anything, please post it here.

MRI monday, results and prognosis to be revealed wednesday or thursday.

I saw it referred to as a Grade 1 Hamstring strain, which is the least severe. Some general info to tide you over, and probably re-assure you a bit.

Strains are graded 1, 2 or 3 depending on severity. A grade 1 might consist of small micro tears in the muscle. A grade 2 would be a partial tear in the muscle and grade 3 is a severe or complete rupture of the muscle.

Grade 1: What does it feel like?

Might have tightness in the thigh.
May be able to walk properly.
Probably won't have much swelling.
Lying on front and trying to bend the knee against resistance probably won't produce much pain.
What can the athlete do?

Use a compression bandage or heat retainer until you feel no pain.
See a sports injury professional who can advise on rehabilitation and strengthening.
What can a Sports Injury Specialist or Doctor do?

Use sports massage techniques to speed up recovery (very important).
Use ultrasound and electrical stimulation.
Prescribe a rehabilitation programme.

Well I am one of those with both Manning and Harrison, which I have had in my keeper league since Mannings rookie years (what a masterful draft). I will no doubt be hurt if Harrison is out but do not see that it will impact Manning as much as many think. Manning has gotten very comfortable with Wayne, still has Pollard and now has James returning. Plus with the addition of Wilkins, Mannings performance will maintain with or without Harrison. Fortunately, I also have Holt and picked up Santana Moss of the waivers 4 weeks ago, Moss has been on fire ever since. Not a bad WR 1-2-3 punch for my line up. Without Harrison it looks like this: Holt, Moss, Toomer or Travis Taylor.
