whats this i keep seeing scrolling on the NFLN ticker..
Probably means he has a broken hand.
Said it happened on his first catch, but he remained in the game. Didn't look like either hit he took could have broken his hand tho.
I believe in the presser Kubiak said it happened on the play that Cincy challenged whether OD maintained possession or not.
was watching the game again and at the end when he would help his team mates up he would only use his left hand, so he was doing everything possible not to use his right hand. So it appears to me the problem is the right hand.
Deductive reasoning skills.
Sounds like he will be signing those game checks with his left hand for awhile.
haha yeah, oh well he will still play. Even though OD wasnt a HUGE factor yesterday we still need him, he is still one of the best TEs in the NFL IMO.
Yes he will and yes he is.
OD is a gamer.
can he play next wk with a broken hand? dont they normally put a big club over it like von miller has? that seem like it could affect his catching ability somewhat....
Broken hand or no broken hand, unless this next game is an aberration, the Ravens 3-4 has a solid reputation for shutting down the TE.
He is a good blocker. He can still contribute next week.
That sux, hope he can play decently like that.
I think we need to increase Casey's role in the game plan this week. He can do everything Owens can and we should help take pressure off Daniels by throwing him out there.
I don't think we utilize him enough in the passing game....that kid can flat out get open and catch the ball.
I'd love to send Jacoby deep, Andre on a post pattern, and Casey and Dreesen with crossing patterns over the middle of the field.
Hit Casey and it'll be wide open real estate.
Broken hands can hurt but I'm guessing OD makes it work anyway. Doubt he's gonna bail on a broken hand. He's battling some leg issues too iirc.
Casey should see a few more chances. The guy's athleticism is nasty and is a mismatch against most LBers, especially old ass Ray Lewis. Don't forget Garret Graham either.
But, but he's a linebacker now.
Can he block as well with a broken hand as without one? I'm not as worried about losing his pass catching ability because we have Dreessen. But the Ravens are probably going to bring tons of pressure to try and rattle TJ Yates, and I'm worried that OD won't be able to contribute in pass blocking as he normally would.
Kubiak clarifies OD's injury...........HIS HAND HAS AN "ISSUE."
But he WILL play against the Ravens.
I hope Kubiak is smart and makes him wear some PROTECTION!
