Default Slaton May Not Be in the Big Picture for 2010

On the other MB, John McClain has reported that Slaton evidently underwent a cervical discectomy (removal of a herniated/ruptured disc). Following the disc removal, a bone graft is placed in the resulting space (as a spacer), in order that the peripheral nerves coming out of this space are no longer compressed. Just to get back to safely participating in any contact activities, at least a 4-6 month graft healing (stabilizing) period must be allowed. That’s just part of the challenge for return. Numbness, pain and weakness (due to nerve damage from the previous nerve compression) may take months and months, easily a year or more in some cases, to resolve.........if they are ever to resolve. What is important here is that the prognosis for nerve regeneration is directly related to the length of time the nerve is allowed to be significantly traumatized before a decompression procedure is performed. The greater the length of time, the greater the risk of irreversible nerve damage. It appears that Slaton was having problems early on in the 2009 season and continued to play until the end of the season........a significant time frame to surgery. My main concern would be when can he be expected to be adequately rehabbed to perform to “adequate” level. And will he ever regain full reversal of his neurological deficits so important to top performance. 2010 may not be the year to depend on a Slaton “return.”

Thanks for the info and the explanation as well. I'm sorry to hear it, but I'm glad we find out now instead of camp or week 2. This gives us the entire off season and the draft to find a great replacement.

I hope he gets better

In the mean time, this should spur the Texans to get another RB in free agency or the draft. Maybe they will go RB in the 1st round, or twice in the later rounds.

So we may need that 2 RB draft I'm hoping for...or the Chester Taylor big deal.

I wonder why all of our Running Backs get injured for the season or career.
Is it our front lins suck or what?


Get well Steve

I'd guess that this means we'll be competing for Clinton Portis, Thomas Jones, or LT if history shows us anything about the RB's that Kubes goes after.

And there is no way that we draft a RB in the first round. No way that happens. That part I do feel good about though.

BARF!

Five years ago I'd have loved that.

Chester Taylor via FA would be much better. Hell...I'd take LenDale White if the price was right.

Once you have that kind of surgery there never really is a full recovery, His range of motion will never be the same and football is a rough on the neck specially as a RB re injury will be eminent!

I hope he gets himself better too. As much as he may not want to hear it, he needs to get right before even thinking about playing football.

Default Re: Slaton May Not Be in the Big Picture for 2010

a couple years ago, this kind of news could ruin the off-season. However, we finally have a competant team. The team can actually weather this kind of setback. Kubiak said it will be a 4-6 month recovery and he won't start hitting until training camp. My guess, based on what Cloak wrote, is that they are not counting on him in 2010 but don't want to give their hand away. It's more likely than ever that the Texans select a back in the first two rounds now.

I feel bad for him, hope he recovers, period. Not just for the 2010 season but for NFL football in general.

Chester Taylor or Peyton Hillis. CJ Spiller or Toby Gerhart. Taylor/Hillis, Foster and Gerhart would be a great 3 RB committee.

I would actually be excited about an LT signing. I'm not normally high on RBs at that age with that many hits. But, he hasn't carried too much the past 2 seasons and I think next season he'll be highly motivated to prove SD wrong. Granted, I don't want to sign him to a big contract. But, I don't think anyone will offer him one.
