Dexter McCluster talks about what it feels like to bend your elbow the wrong way

Dexter McCluster hasn't said much about his injury which is still one of the more gruesome sights this year as far as injuries go. You can see pictures and video of McCluster's elbow bent the wrong way here but on Thursday McCluster talked a little bit about how it felt and what his rehab has been like.

McCluster said he "kind of went into shock" with the pain immediately after the injury, which we could've guessed. On the play in question, McCluster dropped the ball on his own, despite not being touched. He would only do that if he were in some serious pain.

He said he "put a little stress on it" which might be the understatement of the year when you look at this picture of the injury.

When that happened, I and a lot of other people thought it was something broken, something that could end his season.

"What I really wanted to do was try to get the swelling down as fast as possible, continue to do treatment two, three, four times a day and get back as fast as possible."

For the first time in what seems like a long while, we got good news on the injury front when McCluster was only limited on Wednesday.

As far as this Sunday goes. McCluster said he's "catching fine" right now so playing this week sounds like it's still on the table. We've gone over what happens if McCluster doesn't play but it doesn't seem all that crazy to think he'll be out there on Sunday.
