The fact is that he blew out his knee in a come that does not count.
Player evaluation needs to come in a different form.
Guys get hurt in practice too.

It happens.

Ironically, we shyed away from bowers because of our worries on his knees. Shame to lose him, but next year will be when we start to need him.

Re: Redskins DE Jarvis Jenkins Has Torn ACL

Man.. This is a big blow. I actually had Jenkins beating out Carriker by the end of the year. I guess we will need to bring in Daniels. I know the guy is up there in age, but he's still healthy and bench presses a truck

Re: Redskins DE Jarvis Jenkins Has Torn ACL

He's only 23 years old. He'll be fine. But in the short term, this sucks. He looked like a real beast who was ready to contribute right from the jump. Oh well. I think it's my fault. I said to my wife yesterday how fortunate we've been so far on the injury front. And now this. Sorry guys.

I don't know, I'm not a 3 million a year NFL coach. They need to figure it out.

Nobody on here is, but everybody has an opinion anyway.

I was just curious what yours was with regard to player evaluation if it shouldn't be done with preseason games. I'm all for thinking outside the box, but I don't see how you can test, evaluate and prepare players for NFL games without having them go head to head full speed against opposing players.

It's like we say in the Army, train as you fight.

Should have reduced the preseason by 2, expanded to 18 regular season games, and started training camp earlier with an offsetting reduction in spring OTAs.
I've never rehabbed an ACL, but it's apparently a LOOOOOONG process to do the rehab. The earlier, the better. Didn't Jarmon and Rogers tear their ACLs?

Yeah they did. It's like Matty said, at least it happened early enough that we know he'll be back in time for training camp next year.

Re: Redskins DE Jarvis Jenkins Has Torn ACL

It really really sucks, but it's not the end of the world and I don't think Jarvis' injury will have major implications on a potential playoff run, which I'm cautiously optimistic about. Still, it sucks.

Re: Redskins DE Jarvis Jenkins Has Torn ACL

Yeah dammit this sucks. The upgrades along the line might be the biggest difference on defense from last year. Hopefully another 3-4 team cuts a good de. I'm tired of having def ends that are just "serviceable". I liked Jenkins because he seemed to have the opposite attitude of haynesworth.

Re: Redskins DE Jarvis Jenkins Has Torn ACL

I seriously felt gutted when I read the news this morning. Especially because Shanahan caught a little bit of crap for taking him "so high."
