    Anybody hear any news about this. Local radio station said that he might have season ending surgery because we were out of the playoffs. Anybody know? I hope it's false, but I'm just reporting on what I heard on the radio here.

    Now that's a trooper. That's who I want running our defense on the field. No injury is going to keep him sidelined.

    I believe this is the same injury Adrian Peterson of the Vikings had earlier in the season. He did pretty good last Monday night and recovered quickly.

    If it is similar to AP's injury, the ligament can repair it's self.

    It appears you guys are getting too riled up over this.

    Just relax...

    If it's true it sucks, but sit him the last 2 games. It's not worth the risk of further damage.

    I thought you don't get surgery on PCLs? That you just have to wait for them to heal?

    Apparently the procedure is similar to the procedure used for the ACL.

    BTW, anybody heard everything Kubiak said yesterday on 610?

    I caught the part where he said Mckinney still want to play a lot of football.
    He also said that this was the first time that he's most positive about Spencer since the injury. He think both will probably be in OTA next year.
    He also mentioned that if Spencer lose some mobility, he can be moved to guard.

    Anybody has the scoop?

    I missed that but I expect Spencer to replace Weary at RG and LT to either (a) be addressed in FA, (b) be addressed in the draft, or (c) Butler to step up and win the job. Lot to happen between now and then but I think moves should be minimal to maintain chemistry.

    Reggie Bust's injury is similar to this one. But he's crying on a sideline somewhere instead of playing.

    Congratulations, DeMeco. You're a beast.

    Spencer could move in and play LG and Chester Pitts, who is arguably the best LT this team has ever put on the field could move back out to what is clearly his natural position at LT.

    Until we land that franchise LT we all keep thinking will show up one day.

    I haven't heard him mention it on "The Demeco Ryans Show" . Its on 790 right now . Unless I missed it . Demeco is the man if he is playing with that injury !
