Owen Brennan, the father of LSU quarterback Myles Brennan, was on WWL radio this week and talked about his son's arm injury that required surgery on Tuesday.

Owen Brennan talked at length about how the injury happened, the surgery process, his recovery timeline, and his son's plans to stay at LSU to compete in the future.

On the injury:
quote:

"The entire team had the week off before they report to fall camp and as a lot of people know, Myles is a huge fisherman and he was going fishing one last time before camp," Owen Brennan explained.

"He was loading up to go out and had all the gear in his hand and literally, his flip-flops caught a loose board on the dock, he tripped and he wasn't able to catch himself with his hands full. He fell on his left arm and broke his humerus bone."

"To show you how tough he was, he thought it was a bruise and still went fishing and fought through it," Owen said. "The next morning he woke up with realized it was a little more than a bruise. He gave us a call and drove himself from Baton Rouge from Grand Isle and ended up having a compound fracture of the humerus bone."

"[The arm break] was right smack in the middle. If you saw the x-rays, it would have turned your stomach. And as a Dad, it turns your stomach to think that he went to sleep thinking he could go fishing the next day."

"The doctors at LSU did an incredible job. They set it, he has a metal plate holding the bone together with some screws in there. The scar tissue is going to heal over it. It's actually going to be stronger and more healthy and better than it was before if you can imagine that."
On the recovery timeline:
quote:

"Thank goodness that it's his left arm," Owen said. "They are actually going to get him into physical therapy on Friday. They are going to start moving the left arm and getting him into some exercises. They are going to have him throwing the football in two weeks."

"Initially they said three months (before he would be able to take a hit). When they finished the surgery, and knowing his healing process, they would not be surprised if he would be ready to go before that."
When asked if there was a chance Myles would transfer?
quote:

"None whatsoever," Owen said. "Matter of fact, the first thing he said to coach Orgeron was 'How much eligibility do I have?' I don't even think we went to the hospital yet and he had this conversation."

"He is an LSU Tiger through and through. He's not going anywhere. He was getting ready to compete for this job on Friday. He wants to finish his career at LSU as the starting quarterback. Whatever avenue that is, whatever path that takes. That's his goal."

"Myles is an LSU Tiger. He's going to be there. He's already been a part of one National Championship and he's hungry. He knows what that tastes like and he wants another one. Whatever that takes, whatever his role is... he's going to be there for this team, for this university for the state of Louisiana to win the next national championship."

3 point of contact, minimum, for stairs. Anything else is an accident waiting to happen.

I want nothing more than him to recover and get back to the team as soon as he can, but holy $h!t. How do you get a compound fracture and think it's a bad bruise. Doesn't the bone have to be pushing the skin out if not breaking through?

They wanted to make sure we all knew how tough Myles is just like aftet the Missouri game we had to make sure we knew how tough he is, or maybe isn’t if you have to push that on us

If you call urself an LSU Fan then u have absolutely, positively got to LOVE Myles Brennan!! He’s been 100% LSU since he was recruited. After all of this uncertainty, his injuries & the clusterfuk that was the Covid season MB is still 100% an LSU Tiger ??. He immediately knew he blew any shot he had at starter this season & likely until Max is gone to the NFL but he still wants to be the Starting QB for the LSU Tigers!!

It’s the constant reminder that he’s so tough that actually makes me question the hell out of it

I logged in because I knew I was going to want to down vote all the asinine comments. I'm convinced some of the people on here are just miserable humans. Most kids would've transferred multiple times by now had the same things happened to them. The fact he hasn't speaks volumes about his integrity and will make him more successful in life once his football days are over.

Ok But the fact is he is so injury prone and I’m a bit tired about hearing how tough he is fighting through his abdomen tear and now this break. You shouldn’t snd don’t normally have to tell people someone is tough but here we are again getting told how tough he is . Sorry I don’t believe it when I have to keep hearing it for justification

Meanwhile, Max Johnson is and was always going to be the starter. He has stayed healthy and has been working out all Summer with his (Super Bowl winning QB) Dad and his highly rated TE brother who is also on the LSU football team. However, preparing to be the LSU QB doesn’t mean shite to some you idiots because for some reason you are enamored with Brennan being injury prone and feeling sorry for the guy because he can’t play. Well whether you like it or not Max beat out Finley and is going to be the LSU starting QB and Myles Brennan ain’t playing this year and maybe not ever. Do y’all give shite about who IS going to play or do you want daily rehab info on a guy isn’t? Some of you are ridiculous.

You understand it’s possible to pull for BOTH young men right? Hoping & praying for a full & speedy recovery for Myles doesn’t mean U HATE Max. Just like believing that Max wld be the better QB for LSU this year doesn’t mean u HATE Myles & are glad he got hurt! Pulling 4 both guys & being supportive of both is possible.

Flip flops claim another one. Have told 100s of patients to stop wearing them including my dad this afternoon. But then again, they are good for my job security.

Makes sense. Against Mizzou he literally ran into like 2 sacks. Needs to focus on his coordination.

Oh contraire. During the healing process bone callus forms over the break site, which is extra mineral deposition, making the bone stronger than it was before.
