04:08 PM ET 02.05 | New York Rangers captain Ryan Callahan has returned to on-ice activity this week after suffering a shoulder injury last week. Sustained during a fight with Philadelphia Flyers forward Max Talbot, Callahan experienced a shoulder subluxation, which means it comes out of its socket and goes back in, straining the muscles in the process. While Callahan was unable to participate in any contact drills, he was able to skate. It is believed that he is still on track with his recovery schedule and could return to regular game action in 10-to-14 days. The next step will require Callahan to engage in contact.

"Callahan experienced a shoulder subluxation, which means it comes out of its socket and goes back in, straining the muscles in the process."

They wanted to impress us with big words......probably took all morning for them to look it up.

10-14 days is a big chunk in this compressed season.....he will still have to be careful even when okayed to play.

Saying "popped out" will only get his half his fees LOL

So, why don't they use the word "proctologist" when referring to Three Fingers? Hmm?

I guess "subluxation" sounds gentler and less painful.

Okay, call me a pervert, but I couldn't help thinking 'engage in contact with who?'

Wow.....5 uninteresting threads. IMO.....

I do hope the best for Callahan, as he is, or at least seems like a hard worker...

Maybe that's what Torts is threatening people with in the photo. He's going to give them a prostrate exam with three fingers and they're going to be spread apart.
