Rak's reported knee and ankle issues

Watching ESPN and listening to NW insider, I found out that Rak has
had, for the past two years, recurring knee and ankle injuries that
have not healed correctly. In moving to the pros, do think there's
a chance of that recurring set of injuries becoming degenerative?

Could be something to look into but I don't think it's serious.

Re: Rak's reported knee and ankle issues

That's the reason I haven't been really high on Orakpo, but all else about him sounds good. I like it that he's a smart dude.

He had a great combine but it still sounds like he gets mixed reviews. I like E. Brown a lot too.

I hope we get either get one of the top 4 OTs or trade back.

Re: Rak's reported knee and ankle issues

I am not saying that the injury report is wrong.

However, every year on draft week, injury reports magically surface. It is a way of getting guys devalued at the last moment. Most of these reports are bogus or they would have surfaced earlier.

Even if the injury report is real, one would think that the FO has already looked into such health issues.

Good point, but JLC has said a no. of times that the FO went against the medical staff's advie in drafting M. Kelly. And Rocky was known to have a degenerative knee condition as well.

Also, wasn't Orakpo hurt a lot the last 2 years at texas? If he played w/pain that's certainly a plus in his status, but I thought he missed some games.

Just look at Rocky McIntosh and Malcolm Kelly. Both had league wide red flags about their knees before the draft and.........
Not the greatest example....LMAO!

You are right. I was simply claiming that we'd be aware of medical problems. Choosing to ignore them, or not, is another issue.

Re: Rak's reported knee and ankle issues

What is NW Insider? And why do your threads look like you're writing a haiku?

As for Orakpo, yeah his injury concerns are a bit of a concern but not a major concern I don't think.

Whoa smoot....But Japanese are usually so elegant when writing there poetry..? That doesn't appear to be the case here...

On to the post. Knee and Ankle injuries are always of concern with any player....I don't have to think back very far to be reminded, Kelly! From the latest I have read on him he is still rehabbing that knee.

I'm on the fence with Orakpo.

Re: Rak's reported knee and ankle issues

C'mon guys, Orakpo's recurring knee has been raised many times now here and elsewhere. Yeah it should be considered serious cuz it's a knee and he's missed time. The abuse his body took in college ball will be gentle compared to what he faces from this point forward...especially getting doubled at DE.

...i don't get the luv for this guy...just a lot of questions and concerns about where he fits best and the durability thing IMO.
