Derwin James out for a significant time


ColtsBlueFL

Recommended Posts

Chargers All Pro safety Derwin James suffered a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his right foot.  Some know it as the "Jones" fracture, but I also know it as what Dr. Chao calls it the Wide receiver fracture as Dez Bryant, Sammy Watkins, Julio Jones, and Julian Edelman (maybe more) suffered the same.

 

If not treated surgically, this could be season ending.  If surgically repaired, James could possibly return sometime before or around mid season. However, experience with all of the above athletes also shows a quick return to play also exposes the player to re-fracture and a necessary second surgery.

That really wasn't a surprise (at least to me), surgery for James.  Yet another no surprise, they may try to get him back in ASAP (minimum just after mid season or so).  However, at some future time not too long after, may well have a good chance to re-fracture it again... just like those mentioned above and, most recently, Greg Olsen. Feel a little bad for the guy.

    • Yup. Has zero to do with race, and everything to do with his ability to read, progress, etc.. Good guy and all, just not very good. Wasn't really that good in college either. He's likely better off in another scheme to be honest where there is less focus on reads and progressions. Chud's O was probably better suited for him as it's more throw-to-spot, than read, progress, and make a bunch of decisions. But to bring race into the discussion is silly given most of the top QBs in the league (Mahomes, Wilson, Jackson, Prescott, Watson, etc.). Nobody cares about that.
    • https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/indianapolis-colts/zach-pascal-22405/market-value/   i can’t believe Pascal’s perceived contract value is being shown at 8.4 million avg and 4yrs. That is a lot of money for a guy who really hasn’t put together an entire season or even really half of a season with numbers that make you feel he has more to his ceiling. He at times has made some plays and looked like is he breaking out and then he levels back out. He is a usable 4/5th receiver imho but nowhere near 8 million $/yr. wow! 
    • He wasn't horrible. He had the lowest completion rate of DBs in his limited time. He did look lost at times, but that's to be expected for a rook changing positions. Keep in mind Tell was a FS at USC, and converted to CB last year. He's built like a tall corner, so filling in for Moore at NB probably wasn't ideal. Can he play NB, IDK. He was never physical in college. He's also not fast (4.6ish). He did score well in agility in the shuttle though.   I really don't know where he'll fit. Not fast enough IMO to play CB1 or CB2. Not sure if he's physical enough to play NB or SS. Probably fine to play split safety in a two high. If he could toughen up, could be good at NB, dime, or SS, but he was never that guy in college. Perhaps a rona year hitting the weights will help. 
    • Brissett was given every opportunity to prove himself to the coaches and GM and he failed.  He's a good back up QB and that is where he is at.  He had 2 seasons and was given a huge pay check.   He is an average starter at best.   Bringing race into this discussion is stupid.   
    • Are you sure it is me? I play if a few Yahoo fantast football leagues but not a Colts one.
