Joe Burrow possibly serious leg injury


Recommended Posts

  • ColtsBlueFL changed the title to Joe Burrow possibly serious leg injury

That's why it's crap thinking to give up on a season like some like to do yearly for one player. You could get the player of your dreams and this happens.

And it's no guarantee he'll ever be the same or reach his full potential now.

 

Hope he comes back strong though.

Also tells you it’s not so bad being a pocket passer or a pass first QB that can occasionally get a first down with their legs. You cannot expect a rookie to put a team on his back.

 

He was fun to watch, hope he comes back real strong.

That is what made Luck special, he could carry a team and did for 3 years taking a pounding going 11-5, 11-5, 11-5. Most QB's can't do that being #1 picks on bad teams.

Out for the year, he couldn't even last a full season and people complain about Luck.

 

Having said that I like Burrow and hope he recovers 100%, the NFL isn't kind to most.

With the current situation   

    He could be on the shelf for awhile

It also illustrates why you are never 'just one player away'. Because with injuries being a 100% probability in the NFL, once you get your 'one player away' on the roster, another one (or two) players might be placed on IR.

 

Full team and roster development for me, not just a key piece, please.

Exactly. That was why I had to comment.

 

Jets are tanking and could get the Clemson kid and the future is golden... Until a random Sunday where you're franchise trajectory gets totally #ed.

 

Players just don't last physically. It's rare a guy is great for more than 2/3/4 years before a big injury sadly changes them in one way or another.

 

Gotta build that 'TEAM'.

I think it's an MCL and maybe even a contact ACL along with it.  :(

 

Darn, I called it (based upon video replays I saw on TV at the time).

 

"With both the MCL and ACL torn, Burrow is in for a lengthy rehab. For comparison, Carson Wentz suffered a similar multi-ligament knee tear on Dec. 10, 2017, and missed the first two games of the 2018 campaign." From NFL.com

I hope there's not any other damage in there that they're not letting out (like a meniscus, PCL, or posterolateral corner injury, etc).

 

Feel bad for the kid, and Bengals fans.

Yeah, a season ending injury sucks. Especially for #1 overall franchise rookie..... But he's  NOT DEAD! He'll  probably be back 100% next season or close to it.  I'm sure Bengal fans are glad they had the pick and used it on him AND Jet fans will be happy tanking for Lawrence(assuming he comes out) even if  he misses part of a season to injury. 

 

What would suck for bengal fans and organization is if Burrow all of a sudden took the money and ran  and abruptly retired with no warning.

I think I read that you are also a Bengals fan. Right? When I saw that happen, it made me think of Teddy Bridgewater's injury. Hopefully Burrow will be back next season. 

 

It also made me think of another Bengal #1 draft pick, Kijana Carter. You may be too young to know him. He was a great RB in college. He was picked #1 overall by the Bengals but he got injured early on in his first season and never showed the promise that everyone expected. 

 

It seems that the Bengals have had the overall #1 draft pick several times. No?

My dad has mentioned him a few times. Yeah the Bengals have had their share of 1sts overall. 
 

I remember another rising star for the Bengals, Greg Cook. Had the skills to be a hall of famer, but he injured his shoulder in a similar fashion to Luck. And that was in his third game of his rookie year. 
 

The Brown family just doesn’t know how to take care of their QBs. You know it’s bad when your star player retires on purpose just to leave the organization and then sign with the Cardinals lol...

    • Bobby O needs to step up his game this coming season. I don't think Walker is coming back ( he'd be a better fit in a 3-4 IMO), and the Colts need better play if he is going to keep that starting role. He consistently seemed to be a step slow in coverage, and that is supposed to be his strong suit. Hopefully, it was a sophomore slump, but if it continues into year 3, Oke will be a backup very quickly. 
    • Stitches....    to your very good point about how to know which performances are real-ish and which are not?   I read a good story earlier this month, I think from Sports Illustrated, basically saying the scouting community is freaking out trying to figure out that exact question.    The loss of the combine eliminates the apples to apples comparison that everyone had.   Plus the loss of face to face meetings...   plus the same set of doctors examining all the players.   All gone.  Medical exams will be done by local doctors.   Personnel people don’t know what to do?   Or didn’t as of early Feb.   I think this increases the chances of scouting error for all teams.   Perhaps dramatically?   I think we could see more Day 1 and Day 2 misses than ever before.   But that’s just my guess...
    • My first thought is LT or DE, but would say that at least so far the early draft of Rock at CB hasnt gone well   We still dont have an answer long term at CB, (Maybe Tell steps up into the role)   I do believe that our CBs will look better if we have a little better rush on the edges......   With at least one glaring hole on the OL and one glaring hole on the DL, it will be interesting to see how CB addresses this draft   Does he stay with his mantra of "lines first" or does he get more of a pure BPA, which could include WRs, TEs, S, and CBs that  would surprise many (or some) fans        
    • actually i think we should move on from Wilkins and i know Ballard could fine a better upgrade for him
