This is probably intentional, as tendons and ligaments are a special case in the current body system, and don't get treated like other body parts.

However then why is there a thing in the health screen that says "ligament sprain, tendon bruise?

Wait so then there is tearing and spraining in tendons and ligaments?

... Why did you say that there isn't?

I think he means there's an icon for it in the health overview legend, but it never actually occurs.

Bluh, my ability to read the wiki is impaired for some reason.

There is also supporting text in the string dump.

This bug still exists in 0.44.05, noticed it on the health screen while playing and found this report from 2010.

Very very minor bug, but thought I'd update
