James Connor injury more serious than thought

Recommended Posts

I heard Steelers say contusion, then later a sprain.  But I see Dr. Chao thinks it may be a high ankle strain; which would be bad news for the Steelers ending the season and possibly some post season RB production if it is moderate or more severe.  It could be just a week or two if it is mild.

Fantasy owners take note and keep tabs...

Hopefully it is not that severe. Didn't Dr. Chao also call Xavier Rhodes's injury as being much more serious than it was? Rhodes played this past week after sustaining that injury that Dr. Chao is referring to below.

 

Quote:

Looking at the injury on video, Dr. David Chao, a former San Diego Chargers head team physician, said in a phone interview that he believes Rhodes most likely suffered a proximal hamstring avulsion, an injury that would end his season. Chao writes a column on NFL injuries for the Los Angeles Times and San Diego Union-Tribune and is a medical analyst for SiriusXM NFL Radio.

“Keep in mind this is based on video, but I’m concerned this could be near the only type of hamstring injury that would require surgery,’’ Chao said. “That would end his season even if the Vikings went to the Super Bowl.’’

Yes, because it is video only without benefit of palpation/exam, he does miss here and  there.  I believe a journalist went over his last few years calls and found a >95% hit rate though.  And this one he called classic high ankle sprain, but could be mild (that’d be 1-2 weeks).

 

In my mind, when a team says it is worse than they thought, it might be more than mild, so a cautionary watch would be prudent.

 

Words from Zimmerman were much different than those from Tomlin.

I hear you.

 

haha Zimmer always says that injured players are "fine". That was a running joke last year because Zimmer said Bradford was "fine" after his injury early in the season, but Bradford missed the rest of the regular season. We kept expecting a player who was "fine" (Bradford) to return in a week or two but it never happened. 

 

What exactly did Tomlin say?

**Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said running back James Conner has a sprained ankle that is a “little bit more significant than we originally thought,” meaning he is likely to miss at least the next two games.**

    • Ballard and Reich seem high on Brissett and will probably try to give him a long term contract after the season. If the Colts end up tanking the season then I'd expect them to draft their future QB in the first round of the 2020 Draft.
    • Plus there is the rare possibility Luck changes his mind several years from now and unretires once he's 100% healthy, or decides to coach in some capacity. Luck did say Indy was his home, unless he changes his mind. We own his contract rights, so it'd be nice to leave open the possibility.
    • No you weren't. Still aren't. And no I wasn't.   I stand by everything I said in that post, which was directed at your absurd insistence that you're tougher than Andrew Luck because you bowled a 220 with a sore back.    And your response to this situation is petty and small, and pretty much reinforces everything I said earlier. 
    • Already said, but just to repeat:   He will count $18.4m against the the 2019 cap, and $6.4m against the 2020 cap. Nothing after that.    I get why they're not making an issue of the roster bonus. I don't like the precedent that it sets, but this is a rare situation. And when superstars retire and get asked to pay back bonus money, it usually goes poorly (like Calvin Johnson). So clean break, and it keeps good relations between the team and the player moving forward. 
    • Probably not but he's who we have now.  It's up to Brissett and the coaching staff to prove that they can be productive.  I have a sneaking suspicion, no evidence mind you, that Reich and Co prefer Kelly but hes got to serve his suspension. Its Jacoby's job to loose and hes got my full support, if not my full confidence.  Bottom line is Luck is gone.  Fans will move on after week 1 and the organization has already done so.  Given the circumstances i think we're in the best hand we could be.  Nothing to do now but see how it plays out.  Love Luck, grateful for the past 7 years, but hes moved on.  One day is all it's taken me to follow suit.  He's gone fans,  Colts play with the QB's they have not the one they want just like '17.  We all get to see what they're made of.  Go Colts.
