Sheets was pulled out of the Houston game after 66 pitches. Any ideas why?

Dear Lord...after that last outing and the control he had in this one, I was becoming a happy Sheets owner. I hope it's not serious, but hearing that it's related to his elbow scares me.

Brewers were originally saying it was back tightness and MLB.com is saying an elbow injury. Not sure what it is.

From Rotowire:

Ben Sheets - P, MIL Apr 15 7:14 PM
Sheets left Thursday's game after five innings due to lower back tightness, according to the Brewers' broadcast.
RotoWire.com Recommends: Sheets has battled back spasms for his entire career. He was pitching well during the game, going five innings and allowing two runs.

I read back tightness. I was hoping to harvest 6 innings from him though, too bad as he seemed to be doing well. Crossing fingers...
