Gibbs hinted that Springs is hiding an injury

During the press conference he said that Jerry Gray noticed that Springs was slower when sprinting and breaking on the ball. If this is true I hope we trade his ass before an offical word gets out, this is becoming way to much of a habit.

NOT GOOD.

Let us hope Macklin can step it up.

Re: Gibb's hinted that Spring's is hiding an injury

Shit, but did he notice this before or during the game? If he noticed this after the game, then that still doesn't explain why Springs wasn't starting.

That's too bad for Springs and too bad for the 'Skins. He had a good game yesterday even though he was used sparingly.

Re: Gibb's hinted that Spring's is hiding an injury

I suspect they're hiding something else. Any more on those disciplinary rumours that were being hinted at here last night?

Or they are just generally being cautious. The phrase injury-prone gets tossed about too much, but I do think it applies to Springs at this point. Save him for December to the extent you can. If you can limp along winning games with Smoot and Rogers while resting Springs, you are better off when the really important games are played.

Re: Gibb's hinted that Spring's is hiding an injury

I was bewildered as to why the didn't play him.

He also was reported to have said he didn't know he wasn't starting until right before the game.

I was thinking that perhaps they baulked at starting him so as to preserve him some for the next two games against division rivals. You know keep the injury prone star healthy for as long as possible...

But this seems doubtful, you should really go all out on the first game of the season, and see what type of squad you really have.

Ill be very concerned if he doesn't see the field soon. Rogers and Smoot are not a very staunch set of cb's.

If he noticed that before the game that WOULD explain why Springs was not the starter.

Re: Gibb's hinted that Spring's is hiding an injury

If springs is hurt AGAIN this should be no suprise. This guy can not stay healthy.

This is his last season in DC. I hope this injury is short lived.

Re: Gibb's hinted that Spring's is hiding an injury

We better hope he is just stiff and working out the rust . Rogers and Smoot will get burned all year with the pass rush being non existent , I thought Miami had a horrible line , yet Green had all freakin day to throw / Thank god chambers couldn't catch a cold ! We need a S. Spring at 100% to win more than 9 games this year .

Springs really needs to get healthy. If we have to depend on Smoot and Rogers all year as the top two guys, opposing offenes are gonna slice through us like Sherman through Atlanta.
