Re: Injured rib

The reason that broken or cracked ribs are more serious than bruised ribs is that the little beggers can displace and slice you up internally. That's what killed Lane Frost the bullrider (8 Seconds). The bull "punched" his rib cage while he was down and a rib penetrated his heart. Take it easy and heal completely. Good luck and good health.
