    This strikes me as odd. Why would he not have been x rayed for this? My guess is he didn't want to be, told medical staff he was fine, went home and became mommas boy again and she made him go in. Iowa State wouldn't be that irresponsible.

    Between tweets like this, caleb transferring and her reaction to CW's grill puns, Lena Grill doesn't seem like she approved of Iowa State much for her boy. Wonder how much of an impact she had on his decision.

    Well she still has her profile picture and cover photo in Iowa state clothing. If she disliked Iowa state that much I’d think that would change.

    It was X rayed. No fracture or break on the X ray taken in Ames

    I don't know anything about anything here, but between this and Wesley Johnson is it reasonable to wonder why this has happened a couple of times?

    There's no bad blood between the Grill family and Iowa State

    Well then someone isn’t telling the truth. I will say there seemed to be some pretty extraordinary circumstances of kids playing through injuries this year. Halliburton wrist, Bolton concussion which was damn near criminal, Grill wrist, Nixon concussion and finally I was surprised that Lewis wasn’t reviewed for a concussion after his head hit the floor hard in the 2nd half against OSU in Kansas City. The Bolton situation is the most concerning because there isn’t a chance in hell that he didn’t have concussion symptoms when he went back in.

    Nobody is lying here. They found the break/fracture on an MRI back home. They didn't go an MRI here. It's not like anyone thought he was playing injured including Grill and his family

    Not what I asked. I'm simply wondering why this has happened two times now. Either way I think it reflects poorly on the medical staff.

    Wasn’t Wesley Johnson like 15 years ago? Even if this was somehow the fault of the ISU medical staff what is an acceptable rate of misdiagnosis over a 15 year period?

    I don't think it's common to do an MRI In that situation but not sure

    All I know is this shows Caleb is a tough kid who gave 100% effort while he was in Cardinal and Gold. It just didn't work our for him in Ames the way he would have liked. Wish him only the best.

    From my own personal experience (broken my wrist twice, but definitely NOT a doctor), it’s not uncommon for some fractures to not show on x-rays until they’ve calcified - usually a couple of weeks later. This happened the first time I broke my wrist. I didn’t even have much swelling, but the doctor treated it conservatively and casted it for a couple of weeks as a precaution. Sure enough, after we took the cast off, he spotted a hairline fracture.

    The second time I broke my wrist, it was really obvious and had to have surgery the next day, but that’s a different story.

    Without any inside information, and going off of pure speculation, I’d imagine that Caleb fell on his wrist, x-rays came back negative so, being a tough kid, he gritted it out. Now that he’s gone back home and had it re-examined after its continued to hurt, they found a fracture. Considering he doesn’t need surgery and is only in a cast for 4 weeks, I’d imagine it’s pretty minor.

    Sucks for him, and I can understand people questioning the staff, but these things do happen.

    You might be onto something. I could have sworn when pausing the game replays that I saw training staff sneak onto the floor and trip players before each of these injuries.

    If it's a stress fracture (which is what I'd expect it to be) it would show up on X-ray until after it had healed. The MRI would should the fracture and the stage of healing it is in.

    Caleb will probably end up at Creighton and be a stud.... wait for it.

    I'd love nothing more than to have a good ol' fashioned 40 page Steve-Fred debate be the most horrible thing going on right now.
