Kevin Thomas is about to be put in the same group as Bob and Gonzo. Fragile.

And it shouldn't be surprising either. The guy was hurt half his career in college. When you draft injuries waiting to happen, this is the result. If i remember correctly, he was injured last year during the very first workout the team had.

Bayone knows, probably better than most, that a quad injury isn't as serious as a knee. So let's give the kid a chance before we start calling him fragile. At least through the preseason.

There are plenty of players that were injured in their first year(s) who went on to have long careers. Jimmy Smith, the Jags great WR, is a prime example.

True a quad could be a # of things so can a knee, but one is muscular & one is a joint, We dont want that joint problem

Usually a quad is a sprain & he just exerted himself to much to fast, something that may be all to common after such a long period of relative no activity to many a body part

as long as one doesnt tear it it will go away, how fast depends on how badly strained and no word on that

^^ Exactly what Bay said, Quad can be a number of things. I thought I had a "strain" in January, waited until March to get it looked at (Was a tear). Four months just to get back to normal schedule! Hope Kevin just has a sprain.

:rolleyes2: @ thomas

It's my understanding we drafted him because he had a really strong workout at his school's pro-day despite the fact he was always injured...

Looks like we whiffed on that one...

Key word there is always injured. Why would you draft a guy that is always on the sidelines?

I don't care if he is the second coming of Deion Sanders, if he can't stay healthy, draft someone else.

    • Cowart has a chance to show out as well, remember at one time was #1 ranked player in the country at the h.s level.
    • The only person over reacting here….   Is you.    You’ve accepted everything the player, the team and the doctors have said.    That type of thinking is EXACTLY why the NFL has a HUGE concussion problem.    The story has now been UPDATED.   The NFLPA has now exercised its right and FIRED the independent doctor who ruled Tua did not suffer a concussion in last Sundays game vs Buffalo.   All the players association will say is they interviewed the doctor yesterday (Friday) and found the doctor skipped several steps.     The handling of Tua these last two games is a disaster for the NFL, for Miami, for McDaniels, and especially for Tua whose long term health may now be at risk.   This is the last type of news the league wants or needs.      The protocols were designed specifically to avoid a situation like this from happening.   And yet it did when it was obvious something was terribly wrong with Tua and with a system that allowed him back in the field three plays later.   The protocols were designed to take the decision out of the hands of team officials, team doctors AND the players themselves who might want to play in a big important game.   That was the whole point of hiring an independent doctor.    So that incidents like this would NEVER,  EVER happen again.  And yet it did.  
    • When you get up stumbling like he was I don’t care what the experts say human decency says don’t let him back him. He clearly lied about his back locking up.
    • We only have one kicker and we have him on the PS? Seems odd.
