Re: Brandon Banks Knee Surgery

I'm guessing no one actually read the link. He will be out at most two weeks (barring any setback). Banks and his agent said yesterday he's doing well and he's already moving around. Possible that all he misses is the Eagles game

Re: Brandon Banks Knee Surgery

Was it just some kind of scope procedure? Doesn't sound major. Maybe they were just removing some scar tissue or something like that.

Re: Brandon Banks Knee Surgery

this was a surprise as I don't recall any news of him being hurt or limited. I know injuries can surface after games & in practice. Sucks that it comes right after his biggest game.

He kept us in the detroit game. The kick return blocking was great, hope that can continue. Not expecting much on punt returns w/him out.

Devin Thomas ?, who needs him when we have Joey Galloway AND Roydell Williams. We should have traded Moss and Cooley for draft picks and sured up our K/P spots for next year.

Re: Brandon Banks Knee Surgery

devin thomas is frikkin lighting it up over there in carolina, Im so pissed we cut ties with him, I mean, If we could have given him 2 or 3 more years, who knows where he could be. He could even be STARTING as a kick returner. Think of all the possibilities. Mike Shanahan really fukkin blew it, IMHO.

He hasn't even caught a ball this season? How is he lighting it up? Banks is a hell of a lot better than Thomas in the returns.

I hoped so, but you never know around here.

If there's no smiley, I assume they're serious when in doubt.


We have some serviceable returners. None with Banks' game-changing speed, but Moss, Hall, Buchanon (did well), maybe Keiland Williams and we could always promote Austin.

I wouldn't want Moss or Hall doing it full time, but when we need a spark, they're useful.

Re: Brandon Banks Knee Surgery

Chad Simpson's pretty solid, was with Indy last year at least, as a kick returner
