Re: great injury news

Pierre needs to get on with surgery if it's pain all the time. He may have been back already if he had surgery and the pain probably gone. Torn ligament should be fixed as best as possible as quick as possible. Not having surgery when he can make tons in the NFL as well as fix it is a decision that will probably be done but should have already been done. We need help from our receivers not this. Hoping Niles Paul and Hankerson are ready to step up.

If you read the entire article it said that the surgery might not even help and my guess would be if the chances it would help were high he would have had it operated on.

Niles Paul and Hankerson are not stepping up and that's been the problem. How do other teams always find these no name guys to step up and play well, but the Skins don't? WR has been a problem for this team since Gary Clark left. Morgan has been an OK pickup, but loosing Davis and Garcon is starting to catch up to this team in the scoring department the last couple of weeks. When your best receiver is Logan Paulson, you have problems.

Re: great injury news

As I understand it, based on my own experience, ligament tears are tricky and, particularly in the foot, are hard to repair unless operated on relatively quickly. If not, they "scar-up" in the torn position and never fully heal. I am holding out hope b/c I am no doctor and maybe they know something I don't. But, honestly, it sounds a lot like what happened with my foot (torn ligament in the metatarsil). I had surgery several months after the actual tear and, over a year later, my foot is still not right.

Foot and hand stuff is very tricky b/c of the many working parts that go into them. Lots of little bones and ligaments that, if damaged, are hard to heal up.

My bet is that it never fully goes away and he will have to get to the point where it is simply a manageable pain that doesn't increase the damage.

Re: great injury news

As much as I want to be happy about this, something tells me he's going to be playing hurt and probably will not be as effective as he normally would be.

I think Garcon said yesterday he expects he probably will have this pain for the rest of his career and doesn't want to have surgery because that potentially could be even worse. It's a shame all around

Re: great injury news

Garcon - even at 75% might be able to give us something.

JB - eh, might as well stick with Polumbus at this point. I give him 2 weeks before he's banged up again.

Meriweather - sure would be nice if he could get in there and give us some halfway decent play at safety.

Re: great injury news

I also read where Garcon doesn't want surgery. And yes it would be nice to see Meriweather make a difference. He could possibly help a lot. He says he feels 100%. We shall see...

I would be shocked if Garcon plays again this season, let's hope Meriweather doesn't bump into anyone at practice

Re: great injury news

From the looks of it, if AA clears waivers, we are going to pick him back up.



LL ‏@HTTR24_7

Last week we put out #Redskins tried to claim AA but JAX got him. They would have released Dez.. AA has been waived by jax, hits waivers



CHAMPIONSHIP!!!...lol

Yeah he doesn't seem to handle that "contact" thing too well.

He told reporters they'll find out about 12:55 Sunday. Said he felt 100% at practice.
