Default Welcome back Payne

Dang, almost feel like humming the "Welcome Back Kotter" song...

Payne possibly back for Denver


Quote:
The wait is nearly over for nose tackle Seth Payne.


Coach Dom Capers said following Wednesday's afternoon workout that Payne could see playing time in the Aug. 27 preseason game at Denver.

Payne has not played in a game since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee at New Orleans during the second week of last season, and he's only seven months removed from a third surgical procedure on the knee.

"I had been lobbying to play in Pittsburgh, and (the coaching staff) decided that probably wasn't a good idea," Payne said. "I feel like I'm ready to go."

He began working in team drills last week.

If Payne plays against Denver, he could see his most extensive action during the Sept. 2 preseason finale against Tampa Bay. That would allow him 10 days before the season opener against San Diego.

"I'm excited about getting some work against Denver," Payne said. "(The Broncos have) consistently one of the best offensive lines in the league. If you need to test yourself against the running game, Denver is the place to do it."
Kudos to the chronic today... some pretty good Texans reading in there.

If he stays healthy, do any of you guys think that he can make the probowl this year? No doubt there will be a lot of competition.

I doubt it seriousely. I don't think Payne will return to 100% until next year. But, he started off last year like he wanted a trip to Hawaii very badly. I'm just glad to see that at this point, it looks like he will be on the field opening day.

That is great to hear. With him returning, that really solidifies that D-line. And if he can get back to last year form before the injury. It will really make the defense a force to be dealt with.

I would rather Payne miss the first few games versus risk reinjuring the ACL.
Where did you hear/see that Payne wouldn't play any games on artificial turf? This is the first I've heard of that.
