Re: Clinton Portis' Knees

I think right now the training staff is being overly cautious with everyone. Even more cautious than usual based on what happened last year with CP and others like Springs.

Re: Clinton Portis' Knees

I had Tendonitis in both knee's , behind the knee cap. It took awhile to heel. I have partially torn the same two ligaments in my ankle three times , the last injury I had two Orthropidics push me to have surgery. I chose to pass on the knife , took anti-inflamitories , rehab, R.I.C.E and took 2 Calcium/Magnesium tablets a day . The Calc/ Mag. tablets have always worked like magic for me in helping me recover from minor injuries . Hope it might work for any of you if you get hurt working out . As always , ask your doctor questions . Good luck to all of you who are hurt !!

They need to be for sure. Hopefully CP can block out the pain and not sustain anymore injuries over the season, but that is highley unlikely.

Re: Clinton Portis' Knees

This does not have to be a big issue and the staff is making the right moves to minimize this. That said, this is IMO how it will be with CP form now on. He's got a bit of milage on him and now he seems injury prone. This is another nagging problem for him that just makes thing more difficult for the O in general.

Where did you come up with CP has an "utter disdain for pratice"? The only thing I have heard is that he does not think that preseason is that important for him and was upset getting hurt in a meaningless game last year.

If he hurts his shoulder, and is bothered by knee tendonitis, hes a lot more likely to sit the game out than if just his shoulder was giving him trouble.
John Riggins talked about this on his show yesterday, he said that he thinks CP might be dealing with his knee the same way John dealt with his back that one year when it was a cronic problem...basically he played the games on Sunday and that was pretty much it...the rest of the week he was in the training room.

Riggins also mentioned the fact that although CP might not be as effective because of the injury and time missed he could still contribute as running back is the one position you can typically miss time in practice at and come back on Sunday and go right into the game without loosing as much.

I think his comments over the years make it clear that he's not a big fan of camp/preseason, etc. In his first camp presser of this year he joked around about it. A part of him is probably kidding and stretching things a bit, but I definitely think there's some truth behind his comments.

Re: Clinton Portis' Knees

Here's a possibility: THe skins and CP are not sure about the severity of the injury. Sometimes tendonitis mellows with rest, other times it lingers. They're hopeful, obviously, that it's short term, but the fact that they went to Andrews the specialist says that they're worried about the slow progress.

My impression is that he can play on it, but it risks a flare up. And that could be worse. I think this is very tough for the trainers--if you rest, it might get better; but it also is a condition that a player can play with. It's more an art than a science, no doubt.

Anyway, I very much doubt that there's any attempt to mislead about the severity, etc.

And as a result of that, it should not be suprising to anyone that Portis is not going all out in preseason because he has made his intentions known. I'm just happy the rest of the team does not find preseason meaningless, or voiced their displeasure with playing them. Personally, I don't consider it a good example to set for the younger players, espically if you're going to be considered a leader.

Um, I am pretty sure you wouldn't be too excited after you get injured in a totally meaningless game. Plus too many people forgot how he got hurt last preseason. He was running full speed to make a tackle after a turnover. Its not like he wasnt trying because he hated preseason all along. Whenever CP plays he goes 100 percent, and he also voices his opinion about preseason, which I do think is true. That doesnt mean it is "utter disdain".

Well preseason is pointless, this isn't about being a good role model and all that flowery bullshit. Preseason is about big bucks and business. Only reason there are 4 games is to make money. The NFL and owners want to fill seats and boost sales. If you actually look at it rationally a 4 game season is meaningless. 2-3 would be much better, but that would never happen.

Hopefully Betts finishes the season injury free.
