Read in the local Orlando paper that Darnell Stapleton just signed a contract with the Florida Tuskers of the USL.

His injury must have been pretty bad.

I always had the impression he wasn't NFL calibre while he was here. Maybe no one is interested?

As far as I understand, rupturing your achilles is a pretty serious injury.

I do believe that the recovery time is extensive- and the possibility of the injury happening a second time is significant.

Shawn can probably clarify on this last point-

This injury has ended more than a few careers. With a full thickness tear the recovery time can be lengthy. I have no idea if Stapletons was a full tear or a partial tear but yes they can take quite awhile to heal even after surgery.

Doesn't exactly bode well for Willie Colon and Limas Sweed, does it?

I think you're right. It was Kendall Simmons that had the Achilles.
