50 labrum tears?

This morning we saw an interesting tweet from Dave Matter who covers Mizzou football for the Columbia Daily Tribune.

Matter's tweet was related to Mizzou QB James Franklin who is currently recovering from shoulder surgery to fix a torn labrum. The part that resonated with us was the fact that Matter said that the Mizzou team trainer told him that this was about the 50th torn labrum that the team has treated over the last 6 years.

You can read the full article here in which the trainer goes into further detail. 

We're no medical experts; but 8 a year seems awfully high, doesn't it? Use the comments below, or email us or let us know on twitter your thoughts.
