Schaub recovered (and really well from what we're seeing) but when all that was being discussed you pointed out many times how it's so much different for a RB. Granted, all speculation at this point but let's say that's what the end result is. Given MJD's age, wear & tear, that could be the Fat Lady for him, huh?
And I'm with you sincerely in hoping that's not the case. I really like watching him do his thing. 'Cept against us of coarse.
I'll hang up and listen.
Should have put a sarcasm there.
The Lions RB Kevin Jones couldn’t be a more representative example. A 1100+ yd RB as a rookie (only 3rd in Lions’ history). One and one half years later he suffered a left Lisfranc. His career took a down hill course from there. Two years later, he suffered severe left ankle ligament tears.......one year later, he found himself in the UFL.
