Irsay’s comments on Luck

Recommended Posts

How does a QB hurt a small bone in his leg during the offseason?  Helping a friend move a piano?

So;  this just further makes the point that CB and the Colts are being less than forthcoming.    I heard the same discussion on the morning sports show here in Indy.  They came up with what it is likely to be and symptoms can last up to a year.  Maybe not something he can't play thru, but it is definitely more than a simple "calf strain".  What is the purpose of the Colts being so deceptive in their discussions. The other teams don't care, they prepare to play the Colts team and if Luck doesn't play then that is just a bonus for them.  All this deceptiveness is starting to make me lose a little respect for Ballard, he never mentioned anything but a little calf strain and now it is a bone (albeit a small bone thing)?.  Irsay comes out at least and tells it like it is..."Confident he (Luck) will find his way thru this thing".

This is why people don’t trust the Colts when it comes to injury updates on Luck.  They have been saying all along it’s a simple calf strain which has nothing to do with a bone and then Irsay comes out and says it’s a bone issue.  Again, I am not predicting doom and gloom but I am saying those that questioned what the Colts said about Luck’s injury have just cause to do so.

I don’t get it either. Why not just tell the truth. I get it maybe Luck doesn’t want the truth out. There are laws about medical stuff being released. It’s just stupid. Luck needs to realize if this is true he has now lied to fans.

when Luck himself used the word "targeting" that got me a little concerned.

Plus there is a greater chance he misses game one with a bone issue then a calf strain. This guy has always got drama around him. It’s all self inflicted by not telling the truth. Makes you wonder if he will miss game 1 and they are trying to make the chargers think he will play.

Perhaps this?

 

Fibula stress fracture

Fibula stress fracture may cause calf pain. The calf muscles attach to the fibula bone, so the traction and twisting forces of the muscles can cause a stress fracture. Symptoms consist of:

Pain at the back of the lower leg, which may be more towards the outside.

This injury would make putting weight on the leg pain, and the calf pain is likely to increase with exercise.

Yeah that would make sense but why not just say he had a fracture and when he did it. What is the purpose of lying.

The only good news is he did try to start camp. So it can’t be to bad. He did warmups with the team the other day.

Here is what he actually said. Anyone remember how much time Ryan Diem missed if any?

He had 3 MRIs. That should have showed up each time.

Its possible Irsay's bone comment is referring to where the calf muscle attaches to the bone. it may not actually mean a bone problem.

Good point, but if he doesn't practice the Chargers will not be scared.  We saw the Colts for the 1st 6 games last year as Luck and others worked off the rust.

Well, it really wouldn't be lying. If this was the issue, saying he had calf pain would be accurate.

 

To be clear, I'm only researching calf pain on google, and not saying I think this is what is wrong with Luck. But Irsay did make this a lot more interesting (and not in a good way!) by mentioning the word "bone.

It may have, but CB and the Colts wouldn't tell fans if it did.... Unfortunately, I have to believe this now.

Has anyone actually seen him lately and made sure his leg hasn’t fallen clean off Because at this point ruling anything out is foolish.

this sucks in todays NFL you need a good QB and you need him healthy to have a chance.  brissett is a good backup but 7-8 wins is max for a backup QB if luck cant go.

 

i hope luck is back sooner rather than later. If brissett has to start 2-3 games its not the end of the world but making the playoffs at this point should be the goal not the 1-2 seed.

I can imagine saying stress fracture does sound worse then calf strain.

Could be a bone bruise which would have shown up on an MRI. With what Luck is doing to heal, this sounds like the most probable injury. These take some time, but its not the end of the world.

We don’t know that they didn’t.  Just because the Colts said it didn’t doesn’t mean it didn’t show something.   It’s been well established that the Colts aren’t obligated to tell us everything about injuries and that’s been my point through all this.  People need to stop expecting them to tell us everything and taking everything they say as the gospel truth.  Use your eyes.  Most people know it doesn’t take this long for just a simple calf strain to heal.  So that’s why I’ve thought something more was probably going on.

Could be that could be a stress fracture.  The only thing I think we can probably rule out is some kind of break.

Yes.  It could be where the muscle attaches to the bone near the ankle.  An overly strong muscle could put stress on the bone where it is attached.  Its a problem that is typically associated with PEDs and weightlifters but simply working out too hard could cause the problem also.

Actually, a bone bruise is usually associated with "micro-fractures". Causes fluid build up and some discomfort.

Ballard did a interview right before irsay. He is probably like shut up Jim.

He’s been amputated at the belly button. The guy in camp is a stunt double. When we go to SD in week 1 they’ll wheel him out on a two-wheel cart. At the snap Nelson will wheel him back behind the line and he’ll make passes from there. 

 

We’re just being coy and trying to catch the Chargers off guard in Week 1. 

 

Pretty brilliant when you think about it...

I'm concerned but not overly worried. If he isn't ready to practice the week of the Chargers game, then I'll start hitting the panic button.

I posted awhile back in the Luck injury thread that it sounded like a bone spur issue based on the location of the pain. I hope that’s not the case.

the browns do this as well.  In training camp the team doesn't have to tell you what the Injury is to a player no injury reports until the season.

    • Edmund Sumner will play against the Pistons tomorrow. I wonder how he factors into the rotation.   Either he takes Aaron Holiday/TJ McConnells minutes, he remains out of the rotation, or they go back to a ten man rotation where they do small ball and play all 3 guards together at some points. 
    • When we get Oladipo back, we will be tough to beat if he is old Oladipo. The Pacers have a solid roster.
    • We all know that Ballard has never gone after an elite WR in FA.  This year the only WR that would be considered elite is Cooper.  Today, here in Western NY, listening to a Bills radio show the reporters were talking Cooper up as a target for Josh Allen next year IF he hits FA.  The Bills have never been timid about spending in FA.  So if he hits FA he is going to get some big offers.  If he does hit FA he is the type of WR I could see Ballard finally going after and spending some of his cap.  He knows it's a big need and getting an elite young playmaker like Cooper might finally get Ballard to go all in and fill a big hole right away. 
    • 1. The Celtics are not trading us Jaylen Brown for Myles Turner.   2. You just need to give up on the "breakout" season for Myles. He's not going to average 15 PPG in this system unless he is taking 9 3's a game like KAT is.    The other 4 players in the starting lineup are all averaging 17 PPG or more this season. There is only one ball. Myles Turner is not getting the touches and shots necessary to average 15.    Goga is a complete liability on defense right now. We should not be relying on him in any regard until he learns how to defend without fouling.       If Myles Turner played in this game, he would be contesting all these shots and making it a lot more difficult on Harden. Sabonis just cannot provide that defense and Goga can shot block, but he gives up too many fouls.    Myles never has high rebounding numbers because he constantly has to protect against other players on the team getting beat and meeting guys at the rim. The rest of the team is there to rebound the ball.     I'm not even thinking about trading Myles until/unless Goga improves to a place where he can be impactful while playing 20-25 minutes.
