    We're all rooting for him. This video unfortunately can only be entirely impressive to those that don't understand that testing a post Achilles tear patient player only occurs with repeated strong resistance. In the video, he is in constant motion with little need for forceful acceleration. The Achilles main function in a RB is to push off forcefully...........and even more stressfully continue to push forcefully against increasing resistance of the opposing D. We won't even really see this in in effect in practices and he is likely to see limited action in preseason games....................several games into the regular season is much more likely to give us a good idea of what he has. :texflag:

    Foreman looks really good. There was another vid posted to footwork Kings Facebook. Looks solid

    I can hear a pop when he tries to break first tackle.

    Again, it's nice to see some decent "footwork" in that other video showing him doing what they called "jump/cutting"............slight jumping, more like a hop ~ 2 inches off the ground............no sharp cutting more like minor gentle slalum.

    Footwork is one thing. But as I mentioned above, he has not done anything to severely stress his Achilles. As opposed to the "other video," you start worrying when he needs to repeatedly jump high and come down hard.

    I'd like to see Foreman do well, but until he does he's still a bust and a waste of a draft pick.

    I mean the Achilles is all explosion. So the jump cutting, which is purely change of direction, is a very very good sign that his Achilles is in really good shape. He has to use a lot of force and he’s putting 90% of his weight down on that plant leg to explode out of the cut. Not sure if we’re talking about the same video, but there was one of him hurdling trash cans (lol) and he came down fine on it. I think he should be good to go, he still has more time to build up everything around it.

    Hindsight is 20/20/. What did you think of the pick when he was busting a long TD run immediately before the Achilles injury? Foreman may never be a contributing factor again, but I wouldn't say he's a wasted draft pick. I would say it's an unfortunate chain of events and just bad luck.

    That's a very "creative" interpretation of the videos.

    I've watched all the available videos and see nothing predictive of hard core Achilles stress. But after reading my posts, I guess if you still think he's fine, he must be "fine."

    I could be wrong. I’m no doctor. I’m just saying I see him making a lot of football moves at full speed and it’s still only April..most of those videos were last month or the month before too. I see no reason why he can’t be in game shape by September. I think that’ll be the hardest part. There’s “in shape” and then there’s “football shape”. Obviously be careful with him pre season, but I’d like to see him get as many reps as safely as possible to get back into that football shape

    For what he is doing, he does indeed look good. Just an FYI, when considering the Achilles, "moves at full speed" are much less stressful (as follow through is strongly carried by inertia) than forceful moves from a standstill, or repeated sudden powerful accelerations from a very slow pace...............and not even those are assured to demonstrate that he has no significant deficits, without adding extremely heavy resistance, or a full speed charging or immovable defensive targets. Time will tell.
