Wilson's injury not a death blow...

I'm not saying it's not a big deal, because it certainly is. The guy has been pretty damned good since bursting onto the scene in 2008 and saving 41 games.

Wilson’s Arm A Wreck, Cast Away For The Season

Brian Wilson is donzo.  I called this one about 48 hours prior.  You can put it on the beard….
