GMac Played Injured


Hat tip to dsz002, but this article shed a lot of light on McElroy's performance tonight.  Relevant quotes:

"I cracked my ribs in the third quarter against Florida," McElroy said outside the locker room. "Two of them -- the ninth and the 10th. Left side. It's bad. I got it numbed up before the game and it was killing me at halftime."

A spasm midway through his rehabilitation "jarred the bones loose again," McElroy said. "I'm just glad that we got through it and we were able to do it without taking too many significant hits on the ribs. But if I had a torn ACL, I'd play in this game. I would do whatever it took to be on the field. I just had to deal with a lot of pain."

This certainly partly explains the let up in actions when Richardson had to take over full time duty when Ingram was out injured.  McElroy got hit hard tonight several times, and I'm sure that had a huge effect on his passing due to this.  What a trooper - I'm looking forward to the 2010 season edition of this QB - he certainly is a champion.
