    Wong yes. A percentage of the time.

    Peek probably not. Kinda iffy.

    Mathis no. Maybe in a couple of weeks? They said he was a couple weeks behind Wong and Faggins. He is a speed guy and I am wondering how fast he can get that back.

    They were just talking about PUP on 610. This was the first week they could practice, Mathis hasnt started yet. I guess he MAY be out for the season...

    I have a bad feeling about Mathis, too. They were asking Kubiak on the radio about Mathis, and if he was going to play this year. He said he did expect him to play sometime this season, but that he was a couple of weeks behind Wong and Faggins. But I dunno. Just something about the inflections in his voice revealed disappointment, as if he expected Mathis to be further along.

    Just a feeling I have. Might not be anything.

    What did Kubiak say about his attitude after the motorcycle accident?

    Before the accident he was very interested in getting him involved in the offense.

    Here's the latest on Mathis:

    And others...

    argh

    Give it up. There will always be those who parse every statement and look for every possible negative expectation--you know Spencer's broken leg will be career ending while my kids' multiple broken bones don't mean crud. Odds are sometimes they will be right and crow about it and they will be wrong as well and crickets will chirp.

    Crud, Crow & Crickets. It would be a great name for an album done by a rockabilly band.

    Maybe Crude, Crow & Crickets. :hmmm:

    They said that it likely predated the motorcycle crash. You can guess that it came from the motorcycle crash, but then you would speaking outta your behind. It was troubling him from beforehand. They didn't realize it was that serious.

    The type of injury he had is very hard to diagnose and is not unusual for track athletes to get.

    For more information, check out this old blog post. There are some links in it that have more stuff in it:

    Players don't get to the pro-bowl on accident....especially not rookies...

    I think Kubes is gonna give him a chance....just because the prospect of averaging starting on the 35 is too good to pass up...

    [QUOTE='[[Gary Kubiak]]Who buys this ****? That Mathis broke his leg at the probowl? Who?[/QUOTE]

    Me. Though I think it is unclear when he broke his foot. That it was bothering him predated the motorcycle accident.

    It was a broken foot, not a broken leg.

    Just because you don't like a guy, there is no need to exaggerate stuff.

    I am guessing it will depend on how back he is from the injury.

    His game is all speed. And it is not likely he is up to speed on the wide receiver position yet. Kubiak doesn't want to spend a roster spot on the return position.

    If he is not at his world class speed by the date he needs to be healthy, it is possible that they will shut him down for the season.

    Yeah I agree...Originally I thought Kubes would cut him regardless because he was basically a one trick pony....

    But then i thought about how a good/great return man can change a game, and I thought that Kubes would deem that to valuable to let go....

    Heres to hoping he can get healthy....

    If you don't mind me asking....Why didn't you ever like "the guy" ?

    How can you dislike a guy that can return a kickoff at any given time? A guy that that earns a spot on a probowl roster his first year in the league? A guy that that wasn't drafted until the second day? I guess rumors of a guy being a locker room disruption can really be persuasive. To each his/her own I guess.:rolleyes:

    Some guys are just going to be special teamers.....I wouldn't mind it if he could become a legit reciever, but I just think what he offers on KR's is too valuable to just let him go...
