Default Timmons frusturated with injury

This is just great

Pacing impatiently on the sideline at Steelers' South Side practice facility Thursday, linebacker Lawrence Timmons, the team's first-round draft pick from Florida State, watches and waits for his pulled groin to heal.

The injury he suffered in his first workout at the team's minicamp two weeks ago has kept him out of action -- and otherwise out of mind.

Timmons sat out his seventh consecutive workout yesterday -- a total that includes the four minicamp workouts he's missed since joining the Steelers.


Timmons' injury, suffered in the first hour of his first NFL workout, is severe enough to limit his physical activity and prevent him from playing at full speed.

"I don't think he can go out there right now, to be honest with you," [linebackers coach] Butler said. "The thing we want to be sure we don't do is have this be an ongoing problem, with him coming back too quick and repulling it.


http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_509405.html

So the first round pick arguably had conditioning issues when he got winded when working out for scouts prior to the draft and ran a slow 40; now he breaks down in his first workout. Not exactly what you want to read.

Hopefully he is a fast healer - I recall when Bettis injured his groin in November 2001 he did not play again until the AFC Championship game and was ineffective then. Bettis afterwards said it took the entire offseason to heal.

Good thing he's not projected to start this year if it is so major it would take that much time to heal.

I'd rather have him let it completley heal than come back early and keep on injuring it,a la Kendrell Bell.

He does have youth on his side, so hopefully he will heal quickly.

He wanted to impress so quickly, rushed into it, and injured himself. And now he's frustrated. Can't blame him. Timmons will be fine.

Not exactly the greatest news in the world, but let it completely heal and go from there.

Maybe he can get some of Ben's mutant healing and come back in a week

Hey, I'm more excited about Woodley, anyway. He looks like a monster. And he's back out on the field, already.

Not good news, I would expect an immediate impact from a first round LB and not be happy to see him sit on the bench to learn for a year, it's not like he's playing QB. If he wasn't slated as a starter to begin with he shouldn't have been drafted.

I gotta agree.

Furthermore, that is typical for a groin injury. They just liner and linger. I Hate them.

I still have faith in him, for now. I rather have this happen now than during the season when we might need him.
