We have plenty of unresolved injury issues:

Adam Carriker is still limping following a setback.
It is unknown when or if Fred Davis can come back.
Roy Helu is still battling his injury.
Joshua Morgan is coming off of several surgeries.

Others trying to return from injuries: Brian Orakpo, Brandon Meriweather, Keenan Robinson, Chris Neild, Chase Minnifield, and Jordan Bernstein.

Then there is the Big One - RGIII.

All of these injured players makes me n-n-n-nervous.
Well it is only April.

Indeed you are right, but I feel as if you are making it bigger deal than it is. Thanks to science and technology, lot of players (or people in any case) are healing faster and better. And not to mention, those players have unlimited resources and access to top line of medicine and medical products/therapy than any of us. I probably would not be surprise if one of those players get injured again, but the list is long and the chances are most of them will play lot.

Turn that frown upside down all you.....Debbie's.
Maybe Good things will come the Skins way? We have had some success as of late. You remember we won the division last year, right? Maybe these guys.....Really will come back healthy and contribute.
....Don't worry....be Happy!

Re: Orakpo says hes 100 percent

Just saw his interview, Rak seems very hype, I'm just as excited. He is a pro bowl player and makes a big difference on our D when hes playing. Now get us a safety.

I was just now doing some Irish Car Bombs with Robert Griffin III and he's already planning on a first round bye.

Another take on Garcon's injury

Quote:
While its no doubt Pierre Garcon was a huge spark for our offense last year when he did play with his energy, physicality, big-play ability, and flashes of great speed. Am I the only one finding it a little concerning our No. 1 receiver is saying I cant say Ill be 100 percent for 2013 after this extended time of rest and rehab?

Alec Gerard

It is a little concerning, but at the same time, one thing I learned last season about Garcon from talking to him and talking to teammates about him, is that he is extremely guarded and never likes to raise expectations unrealistically or make predictions. So, thats why he wouldnt commit to being 100 percent, although he and his camp, and his doctors believe that his toe will have healed to the point that hell have his speed and explosiveness by the start of the season. There was no guarantee that surgery would have fixed the torn ligament in his second toe, and so he held off on that, and this past winter, a little more than a month after the season ended, he had a follow-up checkup, and doctors said that his toe was still making progress and that he wouldnt need surgery.

That's almost priceless. A WR yet to break 1000 yards in a season with arguably the best QB in history throwing to him doesn't want to raise unrealistic expectations. On a pretty lousy week...this gave me belly laughs

Re: Orakpo says hes 100 percent

I was not a big fan of giving Garcon the contract that he got. But when healthy, he showed that he was a difference maker. But it seems like this thing with his foot is going to linger and he'll never get 100% healthy. I don't expect that he'll ever play 16 games the rest of his career.

LOL. He's a nice addition to the WR corp when healthy no doubt. The 29th rating sounds about right, but I still question whether his contract is commensurate?

A full year and he will probably be ranked in the low teens, like 12 or 13. Right behind Crabtree and such. In my opinion not worth what the Redskins paid him, but still a good player.

Re: Orakpo says hes 100 percent

NFL Stats: by Player Category

Given there's typically about 20 WRs who break 1000 yards every season and Garcon never has, even when fully healthy with P Manning tossing to him, I can't imagine anyone would rate him as a top 20 receiver. Low 20's maybe but he's been so inconsistent in every season of his career. Honestly I think he's an extremely difficult player to rank.
