I'm pretty new to the world of AFL & am loving it. I've heard the term "cork" used in reference to an injury, a "cork thigh", "cork in the buttock", etc. Can anyone explain to me what "cork" means in this regard? Knowing nothing other than the word, I'm assuming it's something akin to a muscle knot.

Re: What is a "cork" injury?
It's a muscle bruise or "charley horse". See here:

Never mind. I just found my answer on the Footy Words FAQ. Odd, this page didn't come up for me on the site's "General" or "Keyword" search.
