Rick Stengel Shows Up In Sling To 'Morning Joe' (VIDEO)

TIME Managing Editor Rick Stengel showed up to his regular Thursday "Morning Joe" appearance in a fancy sling that Joe Scarborough described as "a device attached to his arm where he can carry two cold beers."

Stengel explained that he had surgery on his shoulder.

"I've had a longtime shoulder dislocation problem, and the great Seth Miller operated on it," Stengel explained.

Stengel also unveiled the cover of this week's TIME: Is America Islamophobic?
