Buckner on COVID list

If they are actually positive they would only be able to move it to the end of the season. There is no where to move it to.

Yeah we would have to have a major outbreak in next couple days for it to be even considered.

 

 

The NFL doesn't want to add a week at end of the year.

 

 

They have already played games that probably shouldn't of been  played. Definitely not going to do us any favors.

Its amazing to watch the absolute spiraling when there's no actual determination on whether he'll play or not and if any of the guys held out for "illness" are also in any danger of missing time.

Go away Covid... nobody likes you.

No if he tested positive he with no symptoms its ten days. If he has symptoms it’s 14 days which means two games.  What we done know if it was just s high risk contact. If it was it might be possible to be back Sunday depending on when the contact was.  This could be the game that takes us out of the playoffs if we lose. Offense is going to have to keep Henry off the field and score some pts. We also have a lot of bumps and bruises on that report. The only good thing is TN is down their best linebacker and are on to their third LT.

 

It's 10 days if he has it. It's 5 days if he was in close contact.

This isn't completely bad. The article says he was in close contact, not that he had it. He can still play if he tests negative before the game

 

That is what most of us are hoping for, for him to test negative before the game and play. That would be HUGE, well everyone has already said that in so many words.

Can Grover take Buckners spot if Autry can’t play.

Buckner is a 3T and Grover is a NT, so it wouldn't be ideal.

 

This is the main thing to keep in mind. If he's just a close contact, but tests negative, then it'll just depend on the contact date (not the date he's placed on the list) as to whether he'll play or not.

If Blackmon and rock are confirmed going on the list it really isn’t fair that every other team gets their game postponed. Ravens got theirs postponed until Sunday. We might best far into the season they start adding a week at the end of the season or cancelling games and adding that 8th play off team. This is the worst team to have this happen against. Another AFC loss would not be good.

That is a massive injury list.  We lost like our entire team in one week...

 

All those guys with actual injuries finished the game so not to worried abort the ones with actual injuries. Probably more of just resting minor thihgs. But missing Buckner, Autry, Rock and Blackmon is not good.

The online betting site I use just took the game off. That is not a good sign...

Dreaming of division title was fun while it lasted lol. They said half the ravens PS is eligible to be called up Sunday. Lol. Guess it could be worse. Carrie should be ok filling in for rock if he goes on the covid list. But it hurts our depth. Odum can probably fill in ok for Blackman too. But we better hope we don’t have any injuries during the game. Offense needs to be on fire and just dream them. If they let the titans stay on the field for long drives we will be exhausted by the end of the game. The only good news is the titans lost their star LB and are down to their third LY. This might end up being a high scoring shootout.

 

Lets hope Autry can come back Sunday. Anyone remember when he was placed on the list.

The way I see it is Buckner is not on the injury report because he's on the Covid list.  Blackmon and Rock are on the injury report and they are listed as ill.  That is probably all there is too it.  Both in the secondary so it makes sense they might have the same illness.  I believe all of the players are now tested daily before practice for Covid so I'm thinking any player on the injury report has tested negative for Covid today.

The players on the covid list are not on the injury report. It’s like when they are on IR.  Autry missed a practice due to illness and was put on the covid list the next day. You can almost bank it both of them most likely will be there by tomorrow.

If Buckner was a high risk contact from a family member I don’t think Houston would  of been out of practice due to being a contact. So it’s probably a actual positive test. What we don’t know if he has symptoms. Looks like rock and Blackmon are actually sick with something so it’s not good.

And it's always the Usual Suspects.   The same people who always panic at the first sign of any possible trouble.

I’m going to say this. Please don’t say we don’t have a chance to win because players are out. We have a chance to win every game regardless of whom ever is out on the field. We have depth finally on this team. Guys have to fill in the void for others. We have other ways to attack teams. Ballard prepared us for things like this. We’re basically rolling into this game with the same defense we had last season. It was missing a piece, but we still had a chance to win.

This wouldn’t bother me to much if it was a nfc team. We can’t afford this against another afc team.  Henry is going to wear this entire defense out.  Windsor might get his chance at DT. Turay doesn’t resllt  help us with Henry. They might not even have to throw it.  

 

Eason ran the scout team today with rivers sitting out with his toe.

 

If we get Autry back and Rock and Blackmon aren’t put on the list I think we can be ok. But I will bet we don’t get Autry back yet. 

Just saw the ravens disciplined a strength and conditioning coach because they failed to report symptoms and didn’t wear a tracking device.

I’m just sitting back, popping a bourbon and watching the forum implode. 
 

if we start getting a lot of confirmed cases, the league will postpone this game.

Where  they going to postpone it too? There isn’t anywhere until the end of the season. They won’t do that yet with just one game.

 

The good news is Stalworth and big grove have been great run stoppers. It’s time for Lewis to shine. Plus titans oline isn’t the one of the best so that should help. The biggest concern is the fourth quarter and not having the depth to keep Henry in check.

Im more worried about Blackmon being out than Buckner. This defense has been good against the run without Buckner for a while now. Yeah things won't be as great, but Grover Stewart is still here and he's better than ever... He's going to have to step up on that line. 

 

But if Blackmon is out, im not liking that at all... Blackmon has a name in the league after the Packers game and I dont like him not being there among mistakes Tannehill will most definitely make. 

 

The offense really needs to get going and going fast, and take pressure off the defense. Lets hope they are gelling and that offensive line is healed up along with Rivers. Thanksgiving couldn't be at a better time with that extra day off.

Let’s not forget Autry might still be invaluable Sunday. This is awful with Henry. What a horrible time to have this happen. Why couldn’t it of happened against a non AFC and divisional game. Who plays without Buckner or Autry. Lewis? This is not going to be pretty. We are going to get run all over.  We are going to be so worn out by the end of the game. Tech said the injury report would be long. Bet there are a bunch of close contacts who didn’t practice too. Let’s pray it’s just a close contact and he doesn’t have it. Not having Buckner for two weeks would be awful. Such bad timing. I hate covid. Offense is going to have to put up some points.

 

This is simply a complete load of selfish and chicken little nonsense.

 

If your first thought is anything other than "I hope the best for Buckner" when you see this news, then you've done it wrong.  Hint - you've done it wrong.

 

And then to immediately go to "what a horrible time to have this happen" or "this is not going to be pretty" or "we are going to get run over" with the Colts facing Henry this week is comical. The Colts are not just about Buckner - they've got other playmakers as well.

Odum has been really good at making game changing plays. I think Carrie and Odum would  do fine. It’s the depth going into the fourth quarter that is concerning. It hurts our depth. Offense is banged up some too. Let’s hope none of those are serious. Rivers and company need to step on the gas fast and keep them off the field.  Won’t be as concerned if Autry does come back and rock and Blackmon play. We will be fine if that happens. Titans are going to have a very sour taste after what happened against them.

In another topic I predicted the game would be called ‘done’ by some in the first qtr. Evidently I was wrong and in fact we’re already saying the game is lost. I guess I’ll have to find something else to do Sunday. 
 

I hope for Buckner’s sake it is just a proximity risk.

Take the gun out of your ear. All is not lost. As the old sayings go; "That's why they play the game". "It ain't over till it's over.",

"On any given Sunday"!!

This is why we signed Rivers, he can put 30 points on the board if needed. Our defense is still good regardless if Buck plays or not. 

Buckner can be replaced a game. That wouldn’t be a issue if Autry wasn’t already on the list. Then add rock and Blackmon if they are put on the list it’s going to make it difficult. 

 

Just thinking of something. With rivers injury I expect him to play but wonder if they could dress Eason in case Jacoby has to go in and play.

    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to.... 
    • With me, road whites are off-limits.  As to the blue tops, as much as i do dig the color rush blues, I’m an old-school-uni guy, and would lean to white pants.   I’m in Penn State country, and there are some similarities i guess.   I do think improvements can be made in the striping.  Minimal enough cahange to keep purists happy, but could “update the uni.  Perhaps 3 stripes down the leg and middle of helmet.  Middle one thicker than sides.  Not crazy wide.... tasteful like the stripes on a shelby. The middle stripe could be horseshoes similar to the way seattle uses imagry.  Maybe a large horseshoe on each shoulder that circles down around the number.  Minimal...... but updated..... without losing the “brand.”   Remember that outdated font that was recently retired?  A small “refresh” might be nice.   I’d like to see a “ghosted” image of like padding texture or like metalplate image (barely noticeable) at shoulder pads, knee and thigh pads.  Like a 3d effect.   I remember oregon once had ghosted wings on the shoulders that were cool, bit not “too much.”
