    have you missed the last 7 seasons? I know there are injuries - but it seems that by game 2 for the last few seasons we're shuffling, juggling and signing FA's to fill holes.

    Maybe by some miracle it's not an ACL and they just IR'd him because whatever it is, it won't be healed by end of the season. I sure hope they find a place for him next year. He's been the best player on the line.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't an Achilles injury worse(longer to heal) for a O-linemen than a ACL injury?

    Sorry for Velasco. He took major advantage of his opportunity here, redeemed his career. Lost of respect for him here. Hope he heals and comes back strong.

    The injury looked bad from what was shown on TV. Did not like what Ngata did on that play, not that it was illegal.



    Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.

    The curse against our OL is going strong.

    It all started with Kendall Simmons's diabetes. Since then we have been cursed.
