From my post of Nov 16, 2021:Well crap, they should bring in Carson Strong! LOL
With this condition, it would surprise me if he didn't require several more knee surgeries in the future.He had neither meniscus or ligament damage.
Strong had surgery on the the right knee the summer before his senior season of high school, which cost him that season. That surgery came after an MRI revealed an osteochondritis dissecans lesion and resulted in 8 biodegradable nails being inserted to mend a crack in his lateral femoral condyle bone. The more recent surgery was to clean up loose articular cartilage floating in the same knee.
Osteochondritis dissecans affects joints, most frequently the knee, in children and adolescents. It can also affect other joints, such as elbows and ankles. This condition occurs when a piece of the bone partially or fully separates from the end of the bone that forms a joint. This usually happens due to the lack of blood supply to the area. As the piece of the bone dies, the cartilage covering it cracks, and both may break loose. The area where the bone fragment breaks off is called a lesion. Although these lesions may occur in both of the paired joints, usually just one is affected.
The exact reason why blood flow may become interrupted in a segment of the bone is unknown. However, osteochondritis dissecans has been linked to repetitive trauma or stress on a joint, such as from playing sports, and genetic predisposition in some patients.
The interesting thing is that osteochondritis dissecans usually doesn't return once the patient heals. Although when surgery is required that includes damage to the articular cartilage, there can be worries of longer term problems, including early osteoarthritis.

Strong evidently had pieces of articular cartilage break off (loose body as in the figure below) as a result of the condition and/or the repair...............making the risk for future severe osteoarthritis quite high.

Not bad, if even 3-4 of them make for decent backups then we might actually have some depth for once.
I like the Harvey-Peel addition. He had a decent amount of takeaways and should provide good depth.
Donovan West ? Yes. He should challenge Morrissey at Center. I notice he lost weight at the Combine weigh-in. Undersized with the weight loss.RB- Abram Smith (Baylor)
SS- Sterling Weatherford (Miami-Ohio)
FS- Markquese Bell ( Florida A&M)
OC- Donovan West (ASU)
Yeah, I think teams were Leary of the knee.Not complaining, but if the Patriots can draft a Zappe, the Texans should've drafted Strong in the 7th. I mean, what do you have to lose? I think you should take a qb every year until you have one.
Especially the backup. Minshew probably could win that job if it were open. Minshew would be out Davis Mills if it were open competition, but they don't want that to justify the pick.Yeah, I think teams were Leary of the knee.
It’s going to be fun watching what happens to Strong in PHIL. That place tends to be aQB carousel.
Honestly, I like him just because he has that same expression on his face that Mark Bavaro had.
It depends on what you want.Especially the backup. Minshew probably could win that job if it were open. Minshew would be out Davis Mills if it were open competition, but they don't want that to justify the pick.
Good RB if we can snag him. His ability is not listed as good but he wasn't playing ACC, Big 10 and so on conferences alot. Here is what his scouting report says. Still could be a rotation guy. But we have to sign him 1st.I think he's talking about Sincere McCormick.
Who is this? Ron "the show" Hughley.. Do you know where your muffler is located at?Especially the backup. Minshew probably could win that job if it were open. Minshew would be out Davis Mills if it were open competition, but they don't want that to justify the pick.
How many games did Mills win as a rookie and how many did Minshew win as a rookie? I mean its cool to want to pull for Mills, I'm just stating if its about competition, bring in some competition. If he's clearly better, then that's not a negative,but just handing him the job after what he did last year, I don't think you're improving your team if you're talking about competition.It depends on what you want.
If you’re looking for someone that might when you a game or two, Minshew is your man.
If you want someone who won’t lose you the game, Mills wins.
If you’re ok playing checkers, Minshew.
If you want to start playing chess, Mills.
If you’re doing night at the disco, Minshew
If you’re doing Bun B at the rodeo, Mills
