When used in relation to sport
, Corked is used to commonly indicate a Contusion
For example, when was the last time you heard a commentator read out that a player has suffered a Quadriceps Contusion
Unless the game
is boring, probably never. The commentator
most likely would have said the player has suffered a Corked Thigh
or a Corkie
.< br />
The thigh is one of, if not the most, common
parts of the body to get 'corked' during contact sport, as it is one of the larger muscles that gets in the line of fire
. A average corked thigh will keep a player out of action for around a week.
Note: This only applys to the first definition given in the contusion node, as the second definition (brain damage) would keep a player out of action permanently.
