    Just hope he's ready for camp, and this should give Tate plenty of reps to knock the rust off while Karim and the other UDFA's learn the system. I'm looking forward to seeing how well each do in preseason.

    Full Kubiak comments.

    (on RB Arian Foster’s injury) “He has a pretty good calf strain, and we left him in (the training room) today. He’s hobbling; he’s on crutches today and will be for a couple of days. He’s going to be fine, but don’t expect me to bring him back out here. We’ve got two weeks left, so we’ll just go to work on getting him healthy, getting him ready for training camp. It’s unfortunate, but we feel lucky, too. He didn’t do anything; just took a step. He’s going to be OK, but like I said, don’t expect to see him again (in organized team activities).”

    (on whether RB Arian Foster could return to practice during the team’s minicamp June 11-13) “No, I don’t expect that. We’ve got two weeks left of the offseason, so obviously we’re not going to do anything to take a risk with him.”

    (on whether he expects RB Arian Foster to be in danger of missing any parts of training camp) “No, luckily we’ve got, what, two months almost now before we get ready to go. It might have ruined Arian’s summer; he’s going to have to be here a lot, but that’s OK and he’s going to be OK.”



    Kubiak volunteered a lot of information. Like the crutches bit. So basically he says that Foster is in rehab mode.

    That's where Cushing is right now. He spends most of practice before teams working on a side field. Most of the time, during teams he stands near Wade, often talks with Brooks Reed as Reed comes off the field.

    Back to Foster's injury, it is never a good thing. And the calf needs time. But there are all sorts of intriguing options in the UDFA guys. All have their own thing. They will get more work, and that may not be a bad thing in picking the ones that stay.

    Will be interesting to see how Tate responds, since this is his contract year.

    Hopefully Tate's turf toe has properly healed.

    Tate had good year IIRC 2011 when Foster was out. If both are healthy, I would like to see Kubes run the ball even more rotating the backs. Also I am rooting for my guy Cierre Wood from Notre Dame very good speed for big guy. He seems to be doing well in OTAs.

    CnD, what is your take on Foster's injury and, specifically, where do you fall in regard to Jene Bramel and Dr. First's seemingly divergent takes on the matter?

    Bramel's article, linked here, suggests a more dire outlook than First's interview this morning on Inside the Loop.

    Bramel says that, "the fact that Foster will need the eight weeks between late May and the start of training camp in July to recover suggest a mid-grade injury (or worse)..." and that the "...weeks leading up to camp are an important conditioning period for NFL players and the risk of re-injury or a compensatory injury will be high..."

    Whereas, First called it "tennis leg," a 3-6 week injury, and said that Foster should be back, no problem, for TC.

    What is your opinion here?

    Tennis leg essentially assigned as just another name for a calf tear........it does not necessarily characterize the extent of the tear. I have offered my comments on Fosters injury in the OTA thread, pointing out specifically that the most likely injury was a Class II tear which would probably require 4-8 weeks of recovery/rehab. I would tend to estimate the period closer to the latter rather than the former number, keeping in mind that this is an injury that is even less predictable than a hamstring strain and even more predisposed to recurrence and chronicity.

    So that you don't have to wade through all the OTA thread, here are my summary posts:

    Thanks. To be fair, First did also call it a tear, but the type I could not and cannot remember, so I went layman on it.
