Yeah, this sucks. I actually expect Hicks to be the one to start now that we traded for Brown...but wow, that's a big loss.

On a positive note, a lot of times doctors will miss stuff like this, and its good that they caught it now. A lot of situations such as this turn out to be very tragic. But man, that's a big loss.

I was definitely a Big Mike supporter. At this point I just hope the doctors and he can keep it from being serious.

Line wise, I think this isn't as big a deal. Just means the competition will be that much more aggressive.

That's a serious issue for a football player, I've been there. Hope big Mike can recover, not so much for his football career but just his overall health. I have considered him a true success story after what he went through to get back on track.

Re: Mike Williams out for season? (rumor)

*Grimace* Here we go again... The season hasn't even started yet and we are off on the same foot. Losing starting O-lineman, plugging in stop-gaps. I just hope over the next few years we continue to focus on bringing in young top tier o-lineman.
I do understand that this is a medical condition, not an injury, but I do wonder if being 30 and grossly over weight for years didn't bring about this condition. It's almost a metaphor for the problems on our O-line year in and out. Neglect and age will never add up to success, or the ability to remain healthy in the trenches in the NFL.
Get well soon BMW.

Re: Mike Williams out for season? (rumor)

I do hope BigMike makes a speedy recovering... not so he can play football again for us this year, just so he can live a somewhat normal life. Good luck big guy.

Now as a fan this does hurt our depth, but it also opens the door to some of our young guys getting a shot to make the team. Some one will have to step up, or maybe this opens the door for signing a veteran gaurd as a beckup, I am sure there are a couple out there who we could call. Then again there are always camp cuts as well.

Mike Williams confirms he won't play in 2010 but says, "I'm not dead" | ProFootballTalk.com

Re: Mike Williams out for season? (rumor)

That's pretty sad, his career in the NFL is over. I hope he can recover so that he can lead a normal life. It's a shame, a classy guy all around.

Re: Mike Williams out for season? (rumor)

This is why players have to realize how lucky they are I wish I had the talent they have. BMW didn't realize when he was here the first time how much he loved & had to work at it, then comes back commits 110% then this happens.

Re: Mike Williams out for season? (rumor)

Damn that sucks. I hope he gets it handled and gets better soon, but it sounds like his football career is over anyways because it's just not worth the risk with that type of medical problem.

It's sad to hear that this happened to BMW after all the work he put in trying to get back on the field and everybody sounded promising when talking about how he'd play this season. So get well soon BMW and here's to you succeeding in whatever you do once this medical problem gets resolved.

Re: Mike Williams out for season? (rumor)

Stinks for Mike good effort on trying to make this comeback. Wish him the best in whatever he chooses to do. Most of the time however, these comeback projects don't work out to well.

Different circumstances but does take me back to the Erasmus James, 1st round bust project in 08 that had a bad ending after only a handful of games.

Good luck Mike.

Is it me our does our OL in recent years seem cursed by health problems, both normal and exceptional?

We have crappy luck with our lines anymore. Doesn't matter if it is injuries or stuff like this. We simply have not put a decent emphasis on building up our O line. With Williams most likely to at least sit out a year or retire, we have to rely on Brown and our #1 rook to really be the stalwarts of the line. Rinehart and co are a bunch of bums that thus far really haven't stepped it up as yet to even really be considered for a starting job. We need to draft at least 2 more high round O linemen for the next two years striaght to get a decent line built, plus boost depth.
