Actually, he sounds poignantly accurate, with a classy yet subtle delivery of sarcasm.

I love Marlon, but I've always felt that given a chance, Wilkins could put up similar numbers.  His "fumbling problem" has been blown out of proportion IMO.  I hope he gets the bulk of carries as long as Mack is out.

he didnt have a lot of fumbles but the ones he did have were bad, he had to get that fixed

Fractured hand is probably 4-6 weeks best case scenario, and this one just seems to be severe. 
 

Gordon Hayward fractured his on Saturday last weekend. They were unsure what the injury was until Monday, and he was projected to miss 4-6 with what was termed as a light fracture. 
 

Everything points to this one being pretty significant. 
 

Hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think I am this time. 

What points to this one being severe?

He was ruled out almost immediately. We didn’t even know he was injured in the stands before my buddy texted me and said they said on TV he was ruled out. He texted me that he was ruled out before the next drive even started. Hayward fractured his hand on SATURDAY  and the Celtics didn’t even know the full diagnosis until Monday. That’s nearly 48 hours before they could be sure what the injury was. Mack fractured his and it was clear enough to be a fracture to be diagnosed hours later without an MRI. For them to rule him out almost instantly and know what it is without having a chance to get the full scan on it points to it being bad.

Is Lucas Field turf made up of cement and rocks?

Don't they have an X-Ray machine at LOS?  You can see a fracture without an MRI and get a general idea of how severe it may be.  I do think that there is a whole lot of cartilage in the hands?

Hand injuries are probably a little worse for basketball players than RBs, I'm guessing. Other than carrying the ball, Mack doesn't really need his hands very much, he just needs a functional hand that can apply blunt force to squeeze a ball. In basketball, the hands are used with much more nuance in shooting and handling the ball. You need better motor skills and more responsive hands to do those things well.

Slightly. It was his non-shooting hand, which is mainly just for support. Even still with that, and being considered a “could have been much worse” injury he’s looking at 4-6 weeks . Steph Curry suffered a fracture to his shooting hand and it looking at at least 3 months, and last week a report came out that said he was done for the year. 
 

But being ruled out as fast as he was and the injury being identified without time for a full, proper diagnosis just paints a grim picture. Especially if it’s his carry hand. 
 

We should know soon.

Mack might lose his good stiff arm ability if he tried to play through a hand injury. Hopefully, the other RB's can carry the load until he is 100%.

And... Mack is out again. This is definitely not looking to be a short-term injury. Ruled out on Monday is not a good sign.

    • I predict all older QBs go to the Raiders because Gruden loves QBs. Rivers, Brady, and Brees all fight for the starting spot. Vegas puts odds on it. They take turns during the season to keep them fresh and Gruden finally quits scowling and is happy . Lol.
    • You must have reading deficiencies.    I've stated the same thing over and over again.   And you keep getting it wrong.    I have to believe you're smart enough to being that on purpose.   It's part of your Trump-style to arguing and fighting.    Never be wrong.    Never admit to anything.   Change the subject.   Move the goal line.   Always be on offense.    Keep attacking.   What bothers you most about me is that you can't fool me.    I can spot a con artist, and I have.    I hope this gets to your eyes before a moderator removes it.     
    • You see?    There you go again.    That's the whole point.   You pic proves nothing.   Absolutely, nothing.    Saying it does, doesn't make it so.  All it proves is that you have Slingbox -- now.     And, or course,  you ignore what I wrote.    You've not said a word about Slingbox for 5 months.    Until now.   Ignored that fact every time I called you on it.  Have you noticed how many times I've brought up your Slingbox argument that you've never responded to?    Why?    Because you can't.    Why didn't you claim Slingbox 5 months ago?     Why didn't you claim it during the season when the issue surfaced again?     Why did you wait until now,  5 months later?     And even now, with all the endless back and forth,  you STILL CAN'T EXPLAIN IT!     Busted.   Who knows?    Maybe you got Slingbox for Christmas?    Makes no difference.     You have no credibility.    And I've demonstrated that over and over again.     As for another response,  that I sent you?   I have no idea what that is.     Maybe I agreed with you?    Did you ever think of that?    Oh,  why would you ever think that was even possible?   Agreeing with you, or you with me,  is not part of the deal.   Sorry you don't get your way all the time.   Oh, how unfair.....       This is what happens when Control Freaks don't get their way.  
    • Jeudy and Hilton together would be pretty special.  No more holding the ball as if nobody is open. 
    • Love scares you because he didn't have a good 2019 season.    A season in which he lost 9 former offensive starters,  and his coaching staff and the system they played in a very successful 2018 season.      In 2018,  Love completed 64% of his passes for 32 TD's and only 8 interceptions.   Those are quality numbers.     If the numbers were  reversed and his 2018 numbers in 2019,  then you wouldn't be scared of him.       Just remember the circumstances that surrounded the kid this past season.   And he just had a good all-star game playing with talent and better coaching.    You might want to consider that as well.     Just food for thought......
