    I saw a couple Achilles surgery videos after Kobe Bryant went down with the same injury and never once saw any drilling going on. One of the doctors they had on ESPN Radio and TWC Sportsnet (Lakers station), Dr Klapper, said how new sewing techniques they have for this type of injury allows athletes a great chance of returning, compared to many years ago when it was basically career ending. If I remember correctly, regarding Kobe, he said he would probably lose an inch or so from his vertical leap.

    Here are two videos:





    WARNING: they are a bit graphic.

    Sorry it seems the videos have embedded...I don't know how to undue that. I just pasted a link to the video.

    Doesn't surprise me the techniques have changed in one of the fastest changing fields of medicine. I'm glad they are doing better with this injury. I'd expect him to return next year though.

    No big surprise here, just figure out where you're weakest and cannot afford to lose a player and you'll lose two on the first day!

    Going thru Tyrone's twitter, you get the sense that the dline is a close knit group. They do a lot of stuff together outside of work. So they lost one of their brothers today, Brent for good last week...dline needs some reinforcements fast. Wilber needs to grow up fast and Lissemore needs to finally show more of that potential we keep hearing about.

    I actually want to see Albright as starter at Sam (beating out Durant)...he is very athletic and GREAT covering the TE...I think SLB plays more to ALL of his strengths...I think we should look to sign one of the UFA's out there...there is quite a long list of fairly decent names to bring in that may give us as much as Crawford...that stated, I am very bummed we lost him...this was a big year for him to prove his worth for the future.

    Very disappointing injury...just heart-breaking. Crawford was supposed to be one of the big reasons why they felt like they didn't need to draft DL...he would've been more than just depth, he would've rotated and gotten plenty of snaps. It will be hard to fill that void

    In all seriousness, though, Garrett should take a page from Parcells and make mandatory knee braces a requirement until these guys get in better shape, at least.

    It is said Will Smith might be released by the Saints also Vinny Curry has been speculated for months as a possible cut by the Eagles in their transition for 3-4.
