Sounds like it was an appendix. Abdominal pain, life threatening, surgery, *almost* back to normal in a week...

From an internet "insider" whose friend knows Josh's sister: (tak it for what it's worth)  Somebody stepped on him last Sunday.  On Monday he passed out.  He had 3 liters of blood in his stomach and ruptured a vein.

The entire country is overdue. But since we've spent the past 40 years demonizing unions, this is what we get.

The human stomach can only hold about a liter of food or liquid at a time.

From reports, Sweat was obviously hobbling around and in pain almost all week. But, you know, going to a doctor before a playoff game would against The Warrior Code of the NFL, so...

I assume stomach = internal body cavity. Whatever it's called.

Maybe when they said stomach it mean the general abdomen region?

It's called a stomach, part of the gastrointestinal tract.
I don't really understand your comment.

That'd be more likely if it's true, but I'd think you'd be puking it up otherwise.

People who aren't involved in medicine or aren't biology fans regularly use the term "stomach" to mean midsection of the human body, and internally there is an area which encompasses organs from the stomach to the kidneys and below.

I had to look up the term. Abdominopelvic cavity. That is an area which *can* hold much larger amounts of fluid than the stomach itself.

My uncle once had 50 pounds of fluids drained from that cavity and his thoractic(?) cavity.

He was a large man. Also did a lot of drugs. By the time he died, he was on a bottle of methadone a day just to get out of bed.

Not pounds, pints or something. It was a volume measurement and not gallons or liters

Liver trouble? I understand why you asked now.

Liver, congestive heart failure.

In his final years his legs wept water. It wasn't good.

/oddly enough he didn't die of natural causes
//car accident

It's less "warrior code" and more about the NFL keeping bookies happy. Every single team would much rather keep their injury report private, but the NFL requires it so that bookies can set the lines appropriately

This is kinda true.

Tbh coaches just need to be told that when they're hiding information like that it's just so much little dick energy.

BDE means you say up front who won't be there 'cause you're gonna win anyway.

McLane is one of the most informed beat writers for the Eagles.  He claims it's not an appendix.  We'll find it this week most likely.

If they actually opened him up, I don't see how he could play the same week without pulling stitches and bleeding all over the field. So suggesting that he was almost ready was just to deceive the opponent.
