Sounds like a younger version of Shayne Graham.

Exactly two attempts over 50 yds and he was 1 of 2. 87.9 Percentage isn't too shabby though.

His 8/26/12 tear was simply an extension of his 8/7/12 tear.........in the same leg......his right kicking leg. He evidently tried to play through the initial injury and it worked out just as well as it did for Brooks Reed. These extension injuries, if not given adequate rest and rehab initially, notoriously and predictably extend and become recurrent and progressive over a period of months, even if then properly treated thereafter. An acute tear can easily become a chronic tear, one that can take 3-6 months of slow, careful rehab in order to safely return and stay on the field.

As far as pre-injury leg strength, in college, he was never known as a "boomer." He was known for his accuracy under 50yds. Nor was he ever truly in any significant number of games to prove a "clutch" reputation. In fact, as I see it, his "booming leg strength" label has been virtually manufactured and hyped by Kubiak and the Texans F.O.
Doc, is this type of injury the kind that, once you have it and with the position he plays, he will be more susceptible to have it reoccur?

As for the "booming leg strength" label, didn't Marciano and some of the scouts go to College Station and have him work out for them during his Pro-Day? I remember reading something about them being impressed with Bullock and maybe that's where the "booming leg strength" thing came from. Whatever the case may be he had better have an outstanding season for the Texans because I don't see another Kicker signed on the roster.

At least we didn't take him in the 3rd round. At least he isn't a Punter.

This is similar to the concerns you have with a significant hamstring tear. In many cases, once healed, that may be the end of it. In other cases, they may become a recurrent problem. In a kicker with a soccer style (swinging the leg to the inside), instead of basically placing all of the stress on the quad......a very large muscle group.......as in a traditional straight up kicking motion, major stress is placed on the adductor muscle.........a relatively much smaller muscle group. Therefore, there will always be a greater concern for re-injury of that muscle group in a kicker's kicking leg, and especially in a kicker of Bullock's style. Hopefully concern does not translate into reality.

I still don't get the "we drafted him because of his strong mind" when big legged Greg Zuerlein was out there.

Exactly. "Strong mind"???? Sebastian Janokowski's wonderlic score of 9 must have made him a "melted cheese mind," but his leg evidently did a good job of making up for it..........evidently..........
