      Which original report are you talking about?

      AFAIK, the reason he’s coming off the active roster today is because of a hamstring strain (biceps femoris muscle), which will reportedly take about two weeks for a full recovery.

    Oops, I guess I should have taken a class on anatomy.
    I assumed a bicep was in the arm.
    Never heard a hamstring injury described to that detail.
    As always you provide the details to the next-level.
