    It probably didn't help Duffee much when Yeves jumped on his back. Whether or not that was the causation, it didn't help matters much when his left knee buckled medially.

    I'm shocked that Cain and JDS have the same suspension. Not even sure what to make of that...

    Most of the damage JDS took will heal pretty quickly as it was more cosmetic then anything else. No broken orbital bones or anything like that so just needs some ice and the majority of the swelling goes down.
