Jason Taylor to have second surgery on Monday on calf

JASON TAYLOR TO HAVE SECOND SURGERY ON CALF

Posted by Josh Alper on October 24, 2008, 5:38 p.m.
On Thursday, Redskins defensive end Jason Taylor said his surgically repaired left calf was about ď60 percentĒ healed. On Friday, though, coach Jim Zorn said Taylor would have a minor procedure on the calf Monday.
ďHeís trying to play football on it, but that may not be allowing it to heal fast enough,Ē Zorn said. Taylor seemed a bit unsure about just what was going to happen on Monday.
ďThere has been talk about it, but to be honest, I donít even know what the gameplan is right now. Iím going to the hospital now to find out what weíre going to do. The only thing Iím really focusing on right now is hopefully playing the game on Sunday and try to help this team beat the Lions. The rest of it doesnít really matter right now. Iíve been hurt for a month and it hasnít changed. Thereís been a slight change and thatís part of the reason why weíre doing all this talking. I really donít know any details.Ē
Taylor suffered the injury on September 21 against the Cardinals and missed the next two games recovering from surgery. He hasnít practiced this week and is listed as questionable on the Redskin injury report. He didnít practice last week either but played 48 snaps against the Browns. He didnít have a tackle but knocked down a pair of passes.

Taylor's Calf Injury Still a Concern

I hope it is minor, and that he is ok. Seems like he really wants to play, so I have no doubt that if he can he will, especially next year.

Re: Jason Taylor to have second surgery on Monday on calf

Having JT play next year would be great for the defense and great for getting the value of the draft pick which we traded for him.

However, for this year there is still hope that he can heal and come back strong for the stretch run and the possible playoffs.

Ahhhh shit. Oh well. Maybe he can take the next few weeks off and come back after the bye. That's really the best case from it sounds like. Bummer.

Re: Jason Taylor to have second surgery on Monday on calf

Sit down, let that calf heal, then come back full strength. I know it's hard, but a full strength Taylor can help us way more down the stretch than a 60-70% Jason Taylor for the rest of the year.

Shut him down until after the bye, we need him healthy for the stretch run

I say do the procedure today and let him rest the Detroit, Pittsburgh and Bye week so he's ready for Dallas.

Re: Jason Taylor to have second surgery on Monday on calf

We gave up a 2nd rounder next year and a 6th in 2010 to get him, he takes up $8m cap space this year and $8.5m next, we put a lot of our eggs in this old basket. He better produce. We could get several good players with that $8.5M in cap space next year he is taking up.
At least Shawn Springs who also takes up a lot of cap space produces when he is on the field.

Re: Jason Taylor to have second surgery on Monday on calf

A week or two ago Taylor said the calf is the most swollen and painful right after a game. I say definitely shut him down this weekend and probably next weekend. Besides, I'd say a 100% Demetric Evans has been better than a 60% Jason Taylor thus far.

Being healthy for the last 7 games after the bye should be his focus. I'd love to see him come out 100% guns blazing in the Week 11 Dallas game and crush Romo a few times.

I'm not worried about what we'll get from him when he's healthy. IMO injuries are the only reason he's not pro-bowl quality right now.

Re: Jason Taylor to have second surgery on Monday on calf

yeah i agree with you all, shut him down for a stretch, even until the last few games of the reg season if thats what it takes. i was looking forward to seeing what he could do this year, alil disappointed but thats how football goes sometimes.

Re: Jason Taylor to have second surgery on Monday on calf

shut him down .. one thing about taylor I love is his ability to knock passes down at the line of scrimmage in key situations ... it's happened about 3-4 times this year where he has knocked down a ball on 3rd down or key situations ... if he can be 90-100% healthy for the stretch run ( beginning vs Dallas ) I think that can really catapolt (sp) us deep into the playoffs .. how about erasmus james ?? where is that guy !

Evans is solid and should be in there.

Re: Jason Taylor to have second surgery on Monday on calf

Love how this thread is filled with people wanting him back in if he were 70-80% earlier in the year. Rushed him back and just slowed down his progression.
