Hope he heals quickly and is ready for 2011, unless there is a lockout. That sucks to think about.

Hope all goes well. Bronco or not he seems like a real quality person and the league isn't as good with folks like that on sideline.

I am fairly certain he is aware of the potential repercussions of failure, Elvis does not tolerate failure.

Pec tear is a bad injury, but not career-ending, some other guys are gonna have to step up.

Elvis cannot be on the PuP list as he's already practiced during training camp. He either goes to IR, or takes up a roster spot all season.

With all the other injuries and carrying 3 QB's I can't see that.

The mean duration for return to sports following surgical repair of a pectoral tear in athletes is somewhere in the neighborhood of 9 months.

Maybe it won't happen until final cuts are made, but I'd be shocked if Elvis isn't placed on IR before the regular season starts.

Broncos outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil will have surgery Tuesday to repair a chest injury that will keep him out for most, or likely all, of the season if doctors find the damage that is expected.

Broncos head team physician Ted Schlegel is scheduled to perform the surgery. Dumervil visited Dr. Michael Dillingham in San Francisco - he heads the medical team for both the San Francisco 49ers and San Francisco Giants - Friday to get a second opinion on the surgical diagnosis that was made by the Broncos' doctors.

Dumervil then returned to Denver and the surgery was scheduled.

The damage to the pectoral muscle will be examined in the surgery - it can be difficult to assess all of the damage in that muscle because of the size and thickness of the tissue even in an MRI - and the pectoral tendon will be re-attached.

Dumervil suffered the injury in Wednesday night's practice during a 1-on-1 drill. As he engaged tackle Tyler Polumbus, Dumervil extended his right arm and then quickly pulled it down as he grimaced in pain.

He walked off the field gripping the neck of his shoulder pads with this right hand as he kept his right elbow pinned to his body. Tests later confirmed he had damaged the pectoral muscle and pectoral tendon.

Normally the recovery time is four to five months for such an injury before a player is ready to return to the field, though Broncos officials were not going to rule out a return date for Dumervil until doctors did the surgery.

Dumervil, who was the NFL's sack leader with 17 this past season, signed a five-year $58.33 million extension before the start of training camp, most of which is guaranteed against injury.

I know a phys asst and I said same thing. Maybe he can make it back this yr. According to him pec surgery just a really long hard rehab. He mumbled something about the muscles fiber makeup, it's location and some jibberish about how it moves in a lot of directions when it flexes...but I couldn't really hear him I was too busy crying.

One of the only players on the team who makes qbs scared.

It's outside of my specialty. Here is a pretty decent online resource.

http://eorif.com/Shoulderarm/Pectoralis%20Rupture.html

Pec Rupture Follow-up Care

Post-op: Shoulder immobilizer for 4-6 weeks. Elbow/wrist/hand ROM exercises.
7-10 Days: Start pendulum ROM exercises.
6 weeks: gentle passive ROM gradually advanced to full ROM and gentle periscapular strengthening started.
3 months: ROM should be nearly full and Pectoralis major muscle strengthening is begun.
6 months: push-ups and dumbbell bench presses with light weight and high repetition are started.
9 to 12 months: return to full-activities. High-weight, low repetition barbell bench pressing is discouraged indefinitely.
