Good points...

I agree misdiagnoses is involved, the next few days is going to tell a lot.

How did he react to the workout, will he be practicing regularly going forward? 

What comes out from the Colts early this week is going to be telling.

I'm with you @90%... if he can tolerate lateral motion and repeated exercise he could be good to go but needs a couple of weeks of practice to be ready.

 

TY: Dude?  High Ankle? Come On?

Get the heck out here, man!

j/k...

 

Doubt we'll ever know the truth. But yup, I think misdiagnosis is likely the most plausible theory right now. Who knows though. We can only glean info from reports, but the vid could suggest things are not as serious as some have thought. I guess we'll know in a few weeks!

I think there is a chance they did not misdiagnos. He did have a calf strain. If he does have that boney growth from it that can take up to six months to show up. It is also possible that the ankle pain didn’t show up until camp started which would be about the six month mark. We will probably never know.

From what I've read, a bone growth issue can cause discomfort in the calf, Achilles, and ankle. Really anywhere in the lower leg depending on location of the growth. Just depends on the muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc that are impacted by the growth. We'll probably have to wait till Luck retires and writes a book lol

This should spur him on to write that book.

He might have to bone up on his writing skills though

Reich just had a presser. Luck will not practice this week. Although call me skeptical since practice is behind closed doors.

At this point the entire Luck saga is tiring. Let’s just support the team and move on no matter who is the QB. I am tired of all the drama. It’s like  just make a decision for week one and run with it.

Mod Note

I've once again had to remove a number of posts in a topic as they were, aside from a brief interlude of almost intelligent discourse, mostly just personal attacks. 

 

It's fine to disagree, it's fine to "argue" the content of someone's post, it's not fine to resort to name calling and calling other posters out completely out of context to the topic being discussed. 

 

You all know the rules, it would be silly to get banned before the season starts...

I realize they are being cautious, I just wish he would've had a full camp instead of using game 1 (against the Chargers no less) to get his reps in.

    • No more than someone being convicted and imprisoned when it's obvious the police force engaged in improper procedure.   I guess the issue here is that I can see the world outside my own head better than a lot of people.  And I know a little more about physics than the average bear, simply from boredom clicks that turned into self directed study sessions.    The idea that the balls were below PSI because the air was cold and cold air is denser and reduces air pressure, makes a lot more sense to me than some nefarious conspiracy, especially because the Colts' balls were also just barely under PSI, and we all know Andrew Luck doesn't cheat.   The way I had it explained to me is the Patriots keep their balls at the low end of the allowed PSI limit at room temperature.  Throw in a super cold January evening that was way below room temperature and the nefarious becomes the inevitable.  That's why the Colts' balls were also low, because air cold enough to shrink a Patriots ball will shrink a Colts ball too.    The reason that the Colts' balls had higher PSI is that they started higher -- Colts don't push the lower edge of the PSI limit.  Also the Colts balls were tested later, after things had a chance to warm up and normalize   If it was Manning or Luck being accused none of us would have been satisfied with the standard of "proof" on display.    there might just barely be enough actual evidence to get the equipment people themselves on something, if you completely ignore the way temperature affects air pressure, but the evidence tying any of that directly back to Brady is practically nonexistent.   They would have had a better reason to suspend either of Robert Kraft or Bill Belichick than Tom Brady.  Both of them have more authority over the equipment personnel than the starting QB does and at least you could get them on the commander clause. '   All they have on Brady is that he destroyed his phone after they said they didn't want it and before they changed their minds and decided they did
    • I was going to respond to each point but it's not really worth it so I will just say, the fact that he was suspended and fined was not proof enough for you?
    • I don't see anything that makes me expect him to be a very good T.  He should continue to improve as he plays against a wide variety of players and learns their tendencies. But the smaller, faster rushers are likely to always give him considerable problems.  You are probably right, he is a lifer with that "slow punch". Just no improving that!  After watching him do a good job handling JJWatt, and you think his lower body is insufficient. chuckle
    • I would back any player being successful in the NFL against what they did in college. Two different beasts. Leave him where he is....
    • I think there was a chance Cain catches both those balls if there was no interference.
