Chargers Hunter Henry tears ACL in first day of OTA's

Definitely the biggest injury so far. Unfortunate, but we can only hope it doesn't happen to our guys.

 

Question though: If you were Ballard, would you offer Swoope to the Chargers for a 5th round pick and see if they bite now? Their starter at TE is now Virgil Green.

I doubt they would bite on that.  

 

Also as pointed out, they could also try and get Gates to come back for one more season.

I'd be surprised if Gates came back. If he did, he'd be a shell of himself and it'd be for sentimental reasons more than anything. I'm giving the Chargers the benefit of the doubt for now that they aren't that dumb.

 

They could bite on that, I think it's about all we could offer, but I'd love if Ballard took a shot like that to add another draft pick for 2019.

Wonder if they try Fleener if his head is on straight yet?

It looks like the Chargers might be open to bringing Antonio Gates back.

Sad....its that time of year for this stuff....but yes I would expect Gates back. I wouldn't blame them for being interested in a young guy though...that's an old TE group.

Julius Thomas is still available. He might get a look, IMO.

Ouch.. I really thought he’d emerge as top tier TE this season. 

 

Gates back to cheat Father Time for another season it is.

And it begins..

 

ACL injuries, unfortunately, yes.  From monitoring previous years, I expect up to 20-25 more of these in the league by the end of training camp.  Certainly distressing, but likely a fairly accurate projection .I hope none of our top 53 suffer one.

 

BTW - people here often complain about the number of Colts injuries, but it seems to me the Chargers get bit even harder most years.

I read it was around 30 ACL tears before the season starts on average. So about 1 per team on average. That won't be perfectly even though, so the Chargers theoretically could get a couple more ACL tears as well, or another team could easily get multiple ACL injuries as well. It's a bad luck injury as most are non contact. Just have to hope for the best.

I went and looked it up, here you go -

 

 

We've only reached 30 one time recently, 2013.  Interesting numbers... pre season vs. the regular season, yet about 50% of the ACL injuries.  Larger rosters, less games.... similar numbers.

    • One, there is no such thing as a white lie.  Either it's a lie or it's a truth, IMO.  But anyway.   it very well could be the team is being creative with their wording to try and protect themselves, or it could be completely truthful.  I've seen it in my own non contact practices... someone runs to get in position, pulls up right then someone trips or cuts or jukes right then and the person that pulls up gets caught in it gets knocked to the ground and slams their head off the turf.
    • I’m not saying the eagles are a monster but they’ve been built through the draft and bringing in young talent. That “monster” I speak of is what we are doing bring in competitive competition to build and feed of each other like the eagles did .... the eagles weren’t the best team in the play offs nor in the SB .... plus they didn’t have their starting QB but because of what they had built and brought in they were a monster and thus my reference ..... wether they win 1-2 more doesn’t matter IMO .... they’ve built there team right and made the right calls/players like I believe CB, and our staff can, is and will do.
    • Well if he is worried about his health, he is bashing a Belichick 3rd rounder
    • Offense:  Me (center) Defense: My son (OLB)   I don't think we'd help the team at all but it would be so cool to play for the Colts and be the only father/son tandem in the NFL.
