before I read the article, I'm guilty of assuming the wrong thing which was poor form on lifting and maybe ego lifting. I was very wrong. i found this at the link BigMix posted:

***Sunday afternoon update***

Doctors at Baylor Hospital in Texas diagnosed Branch Warrens leg injury as a torn quad tendon in his left leg. Warren will have surgery Monday morning. Doctors expect him to recover 100% and be able to return to the stage to defend the Arnold Classic title in March 2012.

"Branch is upbeat and relieved that he will be competing again in just seven months time," said Muscular Development Editor in Chief Steve Blechman who spoke to Warren after the diagnosis. "Branch is a fighter," said Blechman. "He will recover from this just like he recovered from his tricep injury. Its great news that he will be so soon after such a potentially devastating setback."

Warren says that if he feels up to it, he will call in to MD Radio Monday at 7 pm EDT/4 pm Pacific to give his fans the full story.


Saturday:

Today 2011 Arnold Classic Champion Branch Warren suffered a leg injury in Atlanta, Georgia.

Muscular Development Editor in Chief Steve Blechman has been in contact with Warren and has learned these latest details:

Warren was in Atlanta for a guest posing appearance. He was in a parking lot and attempting to step into his car. The pavement was slick and his left foot slipped out from under him. He fell onto his left leg and heard/felt a "SNAP" from his left knee/quad area. He was immediately taken to an Atlanta hospital for testing.

He has been released from the hospital and wearing a wrap around his left knee/quad. He is now trying to catch the earliest flight he can back to Texas where he plans to go directly to Baylor hospital to meet with his team of doctors to conduct more tests to ascertain the extent of the injury.

Mr. Blechman says that Warren is "upbeat" about the injury and its potential ramifications. Blechman will personally be contacting Warren throughout the weekend for any more updates.

We will be posting more updates on Branch Warren's injury as more information becomes available.


***Sunday morning update***

Branch Warren left Atlanta this morning at 10:30 Eastern and expects to meet with his team of doctors at Baylor Hospital immediately after landing in Texas (approximately 11:30 Central time.) After phone consultations with his doctors they are prepared to perform surgery tomorrow morning if they think it is necessary. Currently his knee is swollen and his leg is in a wrap. MuscularDevelopment.com will continue to provide updates to Warren's condition throughout today and in the days to come.

Yup, that is major suckage to be hammering away all this time and then slip in a parking lot to end his chances at the event of the year!

4. stopped caring

I want to see the "V" be rewarded!!! Not sure if Kai is still part of the "V" clan....

I like the V too Rick...but Jay's just a monster. Blocky mid and all the dude has wings to make up for it. Only way somebody is gonna take down Jay is with a seriously popping back. In my mind Kai is the only one classed for doing that. Phils an amazing athlete no doubt, but when he leans out he just doesn't have that thickness Kai and Jay have...or at least he hasn't in the past. I know that sounds dumb seeing as the guy smoked Kai in the O last year, but I just don't see the trend changing back to the classical look as fast as we'd like.
