So he caught 13 balls for 162 yards and a score with a broken rib. I'll take that.

Or did he catch 13 balls for 162 yards and a score and THEN break a rib? ;)

If you thought Eric Johnson’s performance was something to behold Sunday, you might really think of it as something more than that today. The 49ers tight end underwent an MRI Monday morning that revealed a cracked rib. Erickson said the team medical staff was unclear when the injury took place.

The good news about the injury is that it doesn’t immediately change the availability of Johnson for the Jets game. He will probably not practice this week and is likely to be a gametime decision.

“IN a perfect world I’d like two to three weeks off, but games come quicker than that,” Johnson said. “We’ll just have to see how it goes this week.”

Well, here's the situation. There is not a DAMN thing you can do for a broken rib except rest it and let it heal. Every breath you take hurts. He could play through it and the adrenaline may hide the pain and he could do fine. The alternative is he rests 5 to 6 weeks. I'm gonna guess he wraps the hell out of it, puts on some kevlar and plays through it.

You don't need to rest 5-6 weeks.

It's a small fracture, not a broken rib. If it was broken, he wouldn't play. With a good wrap and padding, it's not that painful, by NFL standards. And he was right, 2-3 weeks is all it would take to be 100%. So it's not really that serious, it's one of the better spots to have a small fracture, it feels the same as a deep bruise.

Yeah, until he sneezes.... LOL....

I've broken ribs on a couple of occasions, and they're never fun, and if he takes a nasty hit, you can believe it will put him on his ass, but it's not something that he necessarily can't play through... They'll tape him up in a flack jacket, and he should be good to go, but you can bet that the first time Rattay gives him a ball above his head over the middle, Johnson will be looking to take his head off....

Eric Johnson is 4th overall in passes thrown to this yr. Thats a jaw dropping stat fellas. In a thread from yesterday, someone compared that to last yr's Boldin - and you really cant argue with the logic too much.

What is Eric Johnson worth right now?

I do think his injury will affect his numbers - but probably only slightly unless he agrivates it.

He's got a bye in week 7, so my guess is that he would play this week with lower production, then take 2 weeks off to heal.
