Thu, 13 Apr 2006 14:44:22 -0700
Mike Klis, of the [URL="http://www.kffl.com/link/184"]Denver Post[/URL], reports USC RB [URL="http://www.kffl.com/player/13320/nfl"]LenDale White[/URL] (hamstring) underwent an MRI on his right hamstring that showed he has a moderate tear near the pelvic region, according to Dr. Randall Eldridge, a Denver chiropractor renowned for his treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. The hamstring tear will sideline White until mid-May, which means White will not have a personal workout prior to the April 29 [URL="http://www.kffl.com/link/159"]NFL Draft[/URL] and may not be ready for the minicamp of the [URL="http://www.kffl.com/team/77/nfl"]NFL[/URL] team that selects him. "He should recover fine," Dr. Eldridge said. "He just needs time to heal. But I could see where he would have been in considerable pain had he tried to run." White hopes the tear found in his hamstring will ease [URL="http://www.kffl.com/team/77/nfl"]NFL[/URL] executive concerns about his work ethic. The extent of the potential damage to his draft value, however, won't be known until April 29.






wonder if he falls out of the first round or not...

Definatley. But has this been going on since his Proday Workout?

He's still a late first rounder at worst.

I wouldn't touch the guy with a stick. He's overweight, out of shape, and has a poor attitude. What kind of guy shows up to the friggin combine out of shape? He's a grade A idiot.

Maybe a guy with a hamstring tear?

How long prior to the combine did he have this tear? If he tore it awhile before the combine, I'll gladly give him the benefit of the doubt. But, you don't go from a physical specimen to a fat turd overnight.

He's probably going to be a good back. But, the guy sounds a little dumb and looks a little sloppy (see his gut).

it also means you'll be useless to start your career and have the possibility of re-currences (i don't know how serious it is besides the no work till may thing). It most definitely affects his stock whether its his fault or not, and not mentioning it earlier doesn't exactly make much sense either.

Willis McGahee dropped down boards due to a broken leg. As you've seen, his career is turning out alright, but he didn't get a break because he was injured, and GW was fired, in part, because he spent a pick on an IR bound RB. Guys like ramsey and benson basically lost their entire rookie years due to coming to camp late, and white's late arrival may affect him in the same way.

I presume he was injured sometime during the season and yes in a short time you can become a fat turd. For example everybody you know who played high school sports learned the art of beer bonging and didn't play college sports. These guys were outta shape by semesters end with double chins.

I am a radiology resident and hamstring tears are big injuries that can be difficult to heal. I am skeptical of his first round status at least for a team with an immediate need at rb. However he is a great talent so a team who might want to groom him a little and nurse the injury would be a great fit.

Re: NFL | L. White has hamstring tear
 
I don't doubt that hamstring tears are very serious. I also don't doubt that hamstring injuries can cause someone to get out of shape. This is just the first I've heard of a hamstring injury and the combine took place last month. Oh well.

Tough call. Don't like the early injury.

Its an excuse.

At the combines the players go through a complete physical and nothing showed up then.

If it truelly is a minor tear, just tell the doctors "hey i have a jacked up hamstring" and thats the end of that but he didnt.

He is using this as an excuse for his poor showing at his pro day.

it is odd to not mention it till two weeks AFTER his pro day (after he already skippedd the combine work), and only after clarrett comparisions started floating around.

Re: NFL | L. White has hamstring tear
 
if you were about to be drafted, would you be a little hesitant to come out and say u had an injury? i probably would be. i think lendale felt that way

Re: NFL | L. White has hamstring tear
 
I'm with Sheriff and Jamf on this one. Besides, when is the last time you used your hamstring to bench that 225 lbs barbell? Slow times are one thing, but there's no excuse for not staying in shape in your upper body.

And, how "out of shape" was Steve Smith when he came back from a broken leg? If you have the right work ethic, you can find a way to eat right and stay in shape. He's making excuses.

I also read that his MRI and diagnosis were done by a chiropractor, and not a licensed MD. It sounds to me like he was looking for an excuse and found a hack to play along. No offense to chiropractors on the board, it just makes a difference to me that it was done by someone who did not go to medical school rather than a sports medicine MD or orthopedic surgeon...

Sheriff Gonna Getcha 04-14-2006 02:00 PM

Re: NFL | L. White has hamstring tear
 
It appears that he tore his hamstring AT the combine. So, I don't know how anyone can say that his hamstring caused him to look out of shape at the combine when he didn't tear it until he got there.

Re: NFL | L. White has hamstring tear
 
steelers would probably take him if he fell.
