if it is ruptured achilles, he is out for season
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.
well it is a good thing he doesn't have to suit up then, isn't it?
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.
Tyrone Crawford @TCrawford_40 8m
Thanks everyone for all the support and Prayers... very much needed right now #ThankYou #CowboysNation
Mannnn tough loss, he's got huge potential...
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.
Now here's my thing... was Craw even that kind of player, this guy was no sure thing imo.
Reading this just makes me sick about the injury. Tyrone is definitely a "RKG".

Took the bike 2 work 2day had 2 park it on the wall we need to put another sign on this year #WorkK pic.twitter.com/XT5UAHFABn
Well that's it....we just went from an 8-8 team to a .500 team.
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.
There's some names to be had from the FA list (I list both DT and DE positions since Crawford was somewhat a hybrid and moved inside during passing downs):
Richard Seymour (DE in 3-4)
Justin Bannan (DE in 3-4)
Ty Warren (DE in 3-4)
Anthony Hargrove (DE in 3-4)
Kyle Vanden Bosch
Jamaal Anderson (DT)
Jonathan Fanene (DE in 3-4/DT in 4-3)
Trevor Scott (OLB in 3-4)
Jarvis Moss (OLB in 3-4)
Antwan Applewhite (OLB in 3-4)
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
Rub some dirt on it.
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.
Aww man that sucks for him and this team! This was supposed to be his breakout season. This one hurts!
So who's a possible free agent replacement???
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.
well this news just screwed up my Monday morning
