OH HELL NO!  I'm petitioning Webby for a dislike button now.

I was wondering when you'd see "dem fightin' words" ...

There's mounting evidence that some of the oft-prescribed antibiotics like Cipro have a role in tendon rupture

https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-03267-5

"In 2008, the FDA announced ‘black box’ warnings of tendon rupture among those given the fluoroquinolone antibiotics"

That class of antibiotics (fluoroquinolones) is typically associated with Achilles tendinitis and/or rupture - somewhere in the region of 90% of the time in what is a fairly uncommon, if notable, adverse effect.  I don't think its ever been linked to problems with ligaments

Every ******* year. When it end. I just hope we can adjust on offense, our offense just isn't as great without Henry in the lineup.

not a heck of  a lot of difference between ligaments and tendons from a tissue perspective.

Other than the size, consistency, position within the body...

I think what Kiwi is referring to is that the proposed mechanism of action with the fluoroquinolones is degradation of the Type I Collagen fibrils - and both ligaments and tendons have those same fibrils as part of their structure.

tissue perspective.

Not location, size, or position. 

Not elite reading texan.

Which is why I said "consistency". A ligament is like a sheet of paper, very small and fragile. A tendon is like a piece of leather, thicker and denser. 

I kinda get where you're going with this, but it doesn't translate correctly.

If there was a pharmico reason for tendons to degrade with a medicine it could be assumed it would have a similar affect on tendons  as they are the same type of tissue.

It's a safe assumption, yes. Still an assumption, however.

totally. It would have to be a mechanism outside of the tissue itself. 

Perhaps the muscle aspect of a tendon.

As Gronk-lite a TE is in this league, currently. Sad news. Was expecting a monster season.
