King of the W. B. Club
A fracture such as his will reveal its early effects on his hip movements only after being exposed to repeated trauma on the field.............trauma certainly expected at the DT position. Long-term, the development of arthritis is the common.Doesn't sound like he has written off this season.
Here is to him having a great season.
That is just horrible! You’d think professional trainers would know better, but I guess not.This practice session began with a drill requiring forceful acute push off from a standstill to beat a medicine ball that was thrown into the air before it hit the ground. No warm ups were performed. I've written repeatedly that the old approach of stretching exercises prior to other workouts should never be done............and has been abandoned by most every legitimate trainer. The blood needs to be pumped throughout the body to all the muscles before any attempt to perform any exercises that stretch them. In this case the athletes were mostly dormant for the past year, and just now trying to get back into shape. Of all muscles that are affected by dormancy, it is the calf muscles (which are attached to the Achilles tendon )..............they go through greatest shortening with extended dormancy. Therefore, athletes must have a great awareness when it comes to trying to stretch the calf muscles to normal length too quickly........it must be done over days to weeks. The strength and conditioning trainer who oversaw this activity should be shown the door.............to the nearest training school.
On the same day, 2 other CFL players suffered the same fate...........details of those Achilles ruptures are not released yet. But I assure you that dormancy plus quick stretch were the main factors.
CFL players union alarmed after 4 Roughriders suffer torn Achilles tendons in 6 minutes
The Canadian Football League did not play at all last season because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which means the CFL needs to be particularly cautious about players easing themselves back into football shape. The players union says that did not happen at team workouts this week.
Incredibly, four different players on the Saskatchewan Roughriders suffered torn Achilles tendons during a six-minute stretch during one workout on Thursday, and two different players on other teams suffered torn Achilles tendons on the same day. The CFL players union is putting the blame squarely on league and team officials.
THE REST OF THE STORY
It has always been a facade...........little more than a joke. It's main purpose has always been the "unwritten major source" for the establishment of Vegas gambling odds.The policy requires that teams provide credible, accurate and specific information about injured players to the league office, their opponents, local and national media, and the league’s broadcast partners each week during the regular season and postseason.
The reporting process is of paramount importance in maintaining the integrity of the game.
this is why I don’t feel any kind of way about these new players crying about concussions & pain and how their bodies have fallen apart once they stop playing…everyone knows these dudes hide injuries. At some point you just have to consider your long term Health & in no other sport except maybe MMA do guys just willing disregard sound medical advice like players do in the NFL.Remember, the NFL Injury Report system was supposedly established for the the purpose of
It has always been a facade...........little more than a joke. It's main purpose has always been the "unwritten major source" for the establishment of Vegas gambling odds.
Now that legalized gambling on games has been opened, the system already with sadly compromised integrity will undoubtedly deteriorate giving way to gross corruption.
The return of Elliot Ness becomes a strong eventual probability.
NFL knows it must reconsider accountability for hiding and faking injuries
July 19, 2021, 5:11 PM EDT
The NFL publicly has had nothing to say about the news that quarterback Tom Brady played the entire 2020 season with a torn MCL in his knee without the Buccaneers ever disclosing the injury. Privately, the NFL recognizes the potential problems that can arise from teams violating the injury report.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the league realizes that it must reconsider the degree of accountability when it comes to the hiding and/or faking of injuries. Last year, the league had a handful of situations involving failure to report injuries, and at least two situations where the league identified the faking of an injury during games.
The league has approached these matters with less and less transparency, refraining from making it known to the world that its teams lie and cheat when it comes to injuries. Put simply, the league doesn’t want those who may regulate (or prosecute) responsible persons to realize how widespread the problem is. The league nevertheless knows that it must insist on greater compliance in order to prevent future problems with politicians or prosecutors, and that could result (sooner or later) in the league-imposed penalties increasing for violations — along with a more aggressive effort by the league to enforce infractions.
Flipping widespread violations to uniform compliance will require a dramatic shift in the culture of secrecy that prompts teams to keep opponents in the dark when it comes to the true health or lack thereof of its players. The Buccaneers understandably hid Brady’s knee injury to keep defensive players from “testing” the knee. One hit, intentional or accidental (or “accidental”), could have ended the season for Brady and, in turn, for the team.
Thus, it won’t be easy to get teams to embrace the importance of transparency and accuracy regarding injury information. It’s nevertheless critical to do so. Without compliance, inside information exists. Gamblers will try to find it. Persons who have it could be contacted and potentially corrupted for it. Those relationships could grow, and what began as an effort to obtain inside information regarding the health of a given player could expand. Eventually, depending on the role of the person involved, efforts could be undertaken to shave points or rig a prop bet.
THE REST OF THE STORY
From a short video that I found, once supinated his plant foot while pushing off. Not a great view, a lateral ankle sprain occurs. However, since sources are insistent that it is a foot injury, it has been proposed that he may be dealing with a sesamoid bone fracture of the foot.
Not unless they're removing the sesamoid bone instead of repairing it. This would be unusual without prior conservative treatment. Although this is the NFL and all things are possible. Not necessarily smart. I have a very strong suspicion that he has been dealing with sesamoid problem for quite a while. Looking at some of his film from last year, he would supinate his plant foot on push off, something commonly seen with pain under the great toe area where the sesamoid bones reside..... And something that is commonly seen in compensatory injuries to the back and hip which he had been dealing with.Is that consistent with possibly “playing through it” like it’s being reported Wentz is considering?
