Prayers everything is ok. Things can't get any worse.
The cart is usually a dooming sign but I'm hoping they used it on him just to get him to the locker room faster since it was about to be half time
kinda looked like Owen Daniels last year if Buffalo, just went down planting his foot all on his own.
He was grabbing towards his ankle. That's why I immediately discounted a knee injury and thought ankle. When you pop an Achilles, you feel like your shot in the back of you ankle or lower most posterior leg.
He will receive an MRI to determine the extent.
If it's a complete tear..............surgery..........and a long rehab.
It it's a partial tear..............cast/boot..........long rehab........and if heals..........high risk of re-injury.
So basically if it is a tear of any kind we are looking at a long rehab.
Are there any other potential issues outside of a tear that would be better?
Thats an injury the Texans could ill afford .... Not only does it take one of their best players off the field but they only had 4 LB's in uniform for todays game ...
Not really. The best case scenario is that he has VERY limited MICROTEARS that he demonstrated pain with, and he was taken out for purposes of confirmation and prevention of further tearing if present. In this case he may be treated conservatively for a few weeks. This is not a very likely scenario.
If he has suffered a complete tear, we will hear about surgery scheduled WITHIN a week.
BTW........MOST Achilles tendon tears are COMPLETE.
The worst defense in the history of the NFL just got worse. Brace yourself for the rest of the season.
I think I need cardiac meds after this season!!!!
If we lose DeMeco for the year, yeah, it's not going to be pretty. The offense will have to score 40 points a game to win.
achilles is nearly always a season ender... big loss but time for sharpton to step up
Man! It seems like alot of players goes down with injuries every week! I think we need to start a- FIRE the strengh coordinator (need pink soap)!
Definitely a pyrrhic victory.
Thing is, it sure looked like the refs blew that call on the third down conversion that kept that drive going, our defense shouldn't have even been on the field when DeMeco got hurt. I could be wrong, but it sure looked like it hit the ground to me.
Damn, even though we won, we are so hosed if DR is out for the rest of the year.
He's out for the year. Official, via Twitter.
twitter is the official announcement these days?
This could be HUGE
We all saw how our D looked without Demeco, we need him!
