This is why the scouts, pro personnel dept, and coaches get paychecks. Go find us the ILB version of Adrian Peterson, please...Thank you.

Reading Sharp's stuff on ACLs -- the point is they are almost impossible to prevent with the exception (no guarantees either) of the high risks players-positions (LB, and skill players on offense) wearing braces early in camp.

If it's gonna happen, this is the best time for it to happen. There are still a lot of fairly decent options available. Jon Bostic i'm down for. AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, BRING IN KHALIL HODGE FOR A LOOK!!

Not surprised. Feel bad for the guy. I was expecting good things from him this year.

Great day for the Colts.

 

Just out of curiosity, how so? Does this injury somehow affect them in a positive way or something?

This doesn't really shock me, I'm guessing there will be 1 or 2 more injuries to starters before the season starts, I just hope it's not one of our top 3 draft picks or Collins.

 

I can't blame the Redskins training staff for another crazy injury, if you can't run around in shorts without tearing an ACL then its time to start thinking about another career.

The worse we are, the better the pick we traded them becomes.

Haskins & Foster were the guys I was looking forward to watching the most.

 

I feel a bit guilty as I consider submitting this post, surely there is no such thing as a jinx.

Some were saying suspected ACL tear, though most were saying he did tear it.  Hoffman just weighed in.

It’s a bummer for sure. Was excited to see him play. But like others have said   We have time to fill the need. We did draft one in back to back drafts. I think this also gives Ruben some time to just concentrate on himself and getting healthy.  SDH and the rook time to step up. Welcome to the NFL.

2019 is all about Haskins and the offense....if they grow up fast, once Reuben comes back for 2020 we will be ready to contend. Maybe this injury seals Norman's fate as a June 1st cut/trade now if it wasn't already? I read the article from KC suggesting a Norman for Reggie Ragland trade since Ragland doesn't fit in KC's 4-3 defensive scheme and would be a good fit in our 3-4 scheme?

I'm just glad it's not Sweat, if Sweat goes down I'll eat Krispy Kremes until the sadness goes away, that's at least a dozen.

The freaky thing about Foster's injury is that it sounds like it could be more complicated than just an ACL tear -- not sure about the consequence of potential artery damage per Finlay's report.  This sounds like worse than the standard ACL so hopefully he is back and ready in 2020.

I like Ragland and he'd feel at home with the rest of the Bama boys. 

If we traded Norman to KC we would dump that salary but would they be willing to take it on?

The Chiefs would then have our two best CB's ☹️

They’re in win now mode. We could probably get a mid round pick out of them too. We’d need more than just Ragland.
