    Sweed injures Achilles

    From the Steelers facebook page:

    In the last of five minicamp practices, Limas Sweed injured his Achilles. Coach Mike Tomlin said Sweed's status will be determined by an examination, but a torn Achilles tendon is an injury that can require up to 12 months of rehabilitation.

    True. Could there be some good news this offseason for a change?

    Limas Sweed is a malingerer.

    Let's just hope it's not a tear and just inflamed or something.

    I was really hoping he would turn it around. The Steelers only seem to have bad luck at the moment.
    The Steelers’ went through seven consecutive drafts (2003-09) without taking an offensive lineman in the first two rounds, the longest such streak by any franchise this century.

    He just got another free year of paychecks. I injured my achilles (not torn). Its taken almost a year and it still hurts when I play even softball. Pretty lame injury to have. So I wish his recovery well. I wish I made that much money to sit in a tub and attempt recovery.

    Them inserting that last little tidbit about torn achilles' isn't encouraging. I did not have high hopes for him, but I do wish/hope the guy gets a good crack at it this training camp. Hopefully it's not torn.
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.
