Re: Skins Injury Thread 2012

[QUOTE=CultBrennan59;956861]2 things I want to state:

1) I was watching, I want to say ESPN; if not Foxsports; and they did a report on astro turf and how it causes players to get Lisfranc injuries and ACL tears greater than grass fields. Garcon got injured in New Orleans, which is turf. How soon until the NFL says "all fields must be grass"

2) I've mentioned this before, but isn't it a tad odd that our banner, of the 6 guys listed there, 4 of them are injured and/or done for the year...

- New Orleans is fieldturf, not astroturf. They are completely different surfaces. Fieldturf is just as safe as Grass. I think the only place that still uses astroturf is Buffalo but I think they changed it last year.

Garcon just gets hurt. Don't blame the turf.

From what I read, they are evaluating to see if a concussion is the problem. Shanny basically said at this point, its up to the Doctors. There are a fair amount of things that can affect balance besides concussions. Inner Ear problems and Vertigo I think are the most common. But even some Heart issues can cause it.

Re: Skins Injury Thread 2012

FieldTurf might be better than AstroTurf, but some players have been critical of FieldTurf too.

Good points. I've had dizziness from blood pressure issues, and at least one friend with the inner ear thing and it sucks. Although, in London's case I kinda hope it's the inner ear being the least serious of the possibilities probably.

Re: Skins Injury Thread 2012

no, i understand why anyone would dislike astroturf, it's like putting a thin carpet over concrete. i meant i want to hear what the players are saying negatively about fieldturf. fieldturf is like putting a sponge on top of a mattress.

the only thing i can think of is that those little black pieces get in your socks and shoes, but so does dirt on natural grass... and it's not that big of a deal.

Re: Skins Injury Thread 2012

London Fletcher, officially questionable, says, ‘Still another 48 hours’ [UPDATED]

They have ruled out a concussion, but still dont know what the issue is with his balance. Londond said he has been experiencing it for several weeks but just told the team on Monday.

I just did some quick reading on vertigo and found about 8 things that can cause vertigo symtoms. Some not so bad and at least one or two that sound pretty serious. Hopefully he comes out of this in good shape.

Re: Skins Injury Thread 2012

sometimes when people have balancing issues, it has been linked to back problems--a bone could be larger/smaller or out of place broken or a disc in the back can cause it

Re: Skins Injury Thread 2012

I heard on NFL Fletcher was full go at practice. But if he's got a bad hammy and vertigo, I mean, how well can the man play?

Hopefully, if it is vertigo, he can get better quick!!! And be 100% after the bye.

Re: Skins Injury Thread 2012

There are meds he can take for the vertigo. If a sore hammy is all he's got, I think he'll try to be out there.
