I don’t know that we had many 4TE sets to be honest. I think Mo, Woods and Granson should be able to get the job done. Can always swing and extra lineman in to block if that’s the case.

 

From what I said you think I'm talking about 4TE sets? Well, I'm not. 

 

What I was inferring is that since we just lost a main TE on our roster, they might sub in another type of receiver in replacement. May that be in 2TE sets, or whatever.

What’s sad as a rookie he is going to be rehabbing instead of working on his skills which will put him behind next season. 

I have just never understood how a well conditioned athlete can blow out an Achilles or even injure their ACL while they are in their 20's. I played several sports in high school and ran for 20+ years on concrete and treadmills when I was my late 30's/early 40's, ran in a marathon and never had a problem like these guys have. Are they doing something wrong, is it training, not stretching, just trying to figure out why some get these injuries?

It’s a 9-month injury.   That puts him back around next May.   He’s young and resilient.   He should be fine.   You’ve already seen how fast Blackmon came back from two major injuries.   Ogletree should be ok as well.

Their not running in a consistent straight line like you did. They are three times as athletic as you and run full speed, cut, break, bend, sudden stops, blocking of incoming linebackers in all sorts of straining positions that compromise the knees and tendons. I promise you its nothing like your amateur running career lol.

Today's athlete's muscle strength and speed has increased dramatically from years past. The ligaments and tendons are not strong enough to support the increase of muscle mass and strength.

  They have the finest professional trainers so i wonder, is your body mass similar to pro football players, did you do a lot of sprinting, did you lift extremely heavy weights like these guys surely do, and did you do a lot of hard cutting as they do?

  I'm thinking they put much more stress on their joints and connective tissue.

 I would think that they did not properly stretch and take care of their injuries as young athletes so that it could be the source of later bigger injury.

 My cousin was an all-state 300 lb player and by the end of high school he had many broken fingers, an ankle, and played through lots of other injury.

 He would tell you that he was within the norm of what happens in the land of the giants. Post college physicals must look interesting.

He's listed at 6'5 and Wood 6'7 so one of those numbers is off, could be both ..maybe Ogletree 6'6 1/2 and Woods 6'6 ?

Praying for a speedy and quick recovery.  This kid has shown and proven his worth this preseason.  Great pick, IMO.  Now, recovery, stay mentally engaged during that recovery and come back healed, stronger & ready next year.

Are we assuming he was going to start over MAC? How is he a “main” TE? He’d probably be listed as TE number 3-4 on the depth chart.

For whatever it’s worth….  At the combine Woods was measured at 6’7” and an 1/8.

 

Ogletree was measured at his Pro Day at 6’5” and a 1/4. 
 

Pictures can be deceiving.
