the biceps tendon/muscle?
This is the muscle KANE injured on his right arm - the gloved one that delivers his immobilizing ChokeSlam!
The biceps tendon is a long cord-like structure which is located in the front of the shoulder. It starts from the top of the shoulder socket (the glenoid) and exits the joint through a bony groove (the biceps groove). Below the shoulder, this tendon becomes the long head of the biceps muscle. The short head of the biceps is a continuation of the combined tendon which starts from a bony hook (the coracoid) at the front of the shoulder blade. Thus the biceps muscle, which is used to bend the elbow and rotate the forearm, has two anchor points in the shoulder region.
