Default Re: Doc First Talks Texans Injuries

If they tell the doctor to say "slight leg injury" when it is infact a major one in order to not let another team know, they will do that.

Dr. First and Dr. CND are independent of the team and as such can be more honest and critical when it comes to medical news. I don't know Dr. First, but Dr. CND has done a fantastic job in explaining and detailing injuries for the rest of us!
Agreed

But why would the Dr.'s be not forthcoming during the offseason?

Could it be that they screwed up the Ed Reed physical just like they screwed up the Boselli/DDW diagnosis?

When it comes to the Texans Dr.'s you know they're lying when their lips are moving. They're basically whoring out their professional ethics to the Texans for $$$$$.

Sorry I expect a little more out of of people who litterally have people's lives in their hands.
