    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.
