And Another One Goes Down

Andrew Luck is the latest big name player to suffer a serious injury. He will miss 2-6 weeks with a lacerated kidney. It was reported that he was playing with broken ribs prior to the kidney problem.

I don't remember so many big name players going down like they are this year. IIRC, it started in pre-season with Kelvin Benjamin and Jordy Nelson.

I was thinking the same thing riding to work this morning when I heard the Luck news. Heck, just for the Steelers, 4 starters out. Ben (multiple games), and Pouncey, Bell, Suisham, out for the year. With as many touches, including punt returns, Antonio Brown has been getting, I'm waiting for him to be next.

Re: And Another One Goes Down

Williams supposedly has a bum foot now, too. Hopefully he can practice today.
Ben was not ruled out for Sunday's game either.

Luck's injury is pretty scary though...and could have been life threatening. Guess it isn't always the best decision to "man up" and play through the pain, esp. with broken ribs...they can slice and dice you from the inside if things go wrong.

Suburban redneck.

Re: And Another One Goes Down

It's knowing what injuries you can play through. Ben COULD play on Sunday (unlikely). If it was playoffs, he would. When he had the aorta thing going on, he cannot play. If playing will make it worse, you probably shouldn't.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

Somebody else had/has an internal organ injury this year. Was it Steve Smith ? Scary stuff, bleeding from the inside.

Steve Smith Sr. has a torn Achilles. His season is over.

Re: And Another One Goes Down

The Eagles just lost their best LB, Jordan Hicks, to a torn pectoral muscle. He was having a great rookie year. Now it's over until 2016.

Re: And Another One Goes Down

McCown is dealing with some of the same issues Luck was with broken ribs. The Browns haven't ruled him out this Sunday. Dude is 36 years old. What the heck are they thinking?

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Are you aware of the franchise you speak of?
