    ...Sometimes a "sprain" is worse than a break.... We saw that first-hand several years back with our defense. ... "Wait-and see" will be the key.

    ....Yea, I'm sure Chaddy will be ready for the season (suprise - suprise)... But how long till he snaps again?
    You do have a point. Hopefully it's a inversion sprain. Marvin Lewis described it as a "foot sprain".

    Good thing we have the wonderful Bengals medical staff taking care of him...
    Unfortunately, sometimes what is initially deemed a simple foot sprain can turn into a full blown lisfranc fracture-dislocation.

    I also saw yesterday where they said that after this season they were going to discuss CJ's contract .
    Giving some time for those bungle rookies to mature?
    He stays gimpy this year it may be a hard learning process for them.

    The Rivers delay is annoying but hopefully he'll be in by tomorrow. The longest holdout his agent has ever had is 36 hours.

    It also appears that Jeremi Johnson will be attending fat camp with Hampton.

    To be honest I think it had more to do with Chad being a pussy than anything else, even Drew Rosenhaus was pushing him to have the surgery done earlier. He was scared he would never be as fast if something went wrong in the surgery. The contract situation probably didn't motivate him either but who knows (Having a couple more Millions of dollars guaranteed probably relieves some of the anxiety of losing a step).

    I'm glad he got it done and hopefully he'll be close to 100% by the time week one comes around...
    The dreaded high ankle sprain!!! I guarantee that is what it is which is why they immobilized it so quickly. Could be a lingering problem all season long.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    The only thing at this point that I'll rule out is a ruptured achilles. Other than that who knows. Marvin like most coaches doesn't like to give away anything. It could be a couple of weeks, it could be several months.

    The rookie maturation has more to do with TJ's contract than Chads. If Simpson or Caldwell can step up this season, I can see the Bengals saying good bye to TJ and using some of that money to appease Chad.

    If they don't step up, a long term deal with TJ might still be difficult to get done but I wouldn't put it past them to franchise him for a season...
