This is the best thread of the season! Why? It is football time! lets go! sucks about injury's, but this is training camp! Almost game time!
We can always hope for "heat stroke" instead of true injury since the reason for the cart has not been definitively characterized.
Hmmm. Heat stroke is probably just as bad considering we have like what, 3 more months of blistering heat in Houston. But hopefully it is just a heat related thing like heat exhaustion/stress. A friend of mine suffered heat stroke, and he can't handle hot temperature anymore.
Growing up in Texas your not living if you don't have at least three heat strokes a year!
Can't help but seeing this as seeming to follow a pattern of underestimation of extent of injuries by medical/training staff..............just like his groin problem resulting in worse than expected complicated bilateral sports hernia related surgeries.
Took my kids to the park today. Humidity is horrible, I almost had to be carted off the jungle gym.....
Unfoturnately Newton wasn't heat-exhausted or heat-stroked...............hamstring tear. Don't know the extent.
Jeff Adams has passed his physical. He's coming off a bad injury for a big man......a patellar tendon rupture a year ago. We'll have to see how it leaves him performance- wise.
Newton just had an MRI and it is felt that he will be out "at least a few weeks." In a big man like Newton, I would expect him to be out no less than 3 weeks, with a significant risk for re-injury the remainder of the season, specifically if he is allowed to return too early. He's already dealt with major lower extremity injuries in the past. And last year, he dealt with ankle, toe and knee injuries throughout the season.
This was something I did not want to hear as Newton needed to have a healthy season. Thanks for update Doc. Sure wished we had something behind cookie man.
Perfect. As if the JJ situation wasn't bad enough, we now start camp with 0 starting tackles too.
Time for Rick to work the phones and get some OL depth in here asap
I'd be calling Baalke and asking about Anthony Davis
I dunno, what about Wade Smith ? He was basically a guard for us before his retirerment a couple years ago, but he also had tackle experience with the Chiefs before coming to us in FA.
I was hoping we'd draft atleast one OT in the just concluded Draft, but even 3 Drafts in Billy is yet to draft a single OT. He drafts guards and centers but not tackles ?
Take it for what its worth, but Wade Smith guests on MADD radio and I always hear the guys comment on how they can't get over how much smaller he is now that's stopped playing...
