Default Timmons to seek second opinion on injury

Steelers' Timmons to seek second opinion on injury
Wednesday, August 08, 2007

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers sent rookie linebacker Lawrence Timmons, their first-round draft choice, to a doctor in Philadelphia today to get a second opinion on his troubling groin injury.

Timmons, the team's first-round draft pick, has not practiced in two weeks since the groin was re-injured on the third day of training camp practices at Saint Vincent College. He also missed all of the spring drills after the groin was first hit in his first practice after being the 15th player taken in the NFL draft.

"From what I understand, there's somewhat of a breakthrough there but I'll have more information tomorrow and we'll see where we go with it," coach Mike Tomlin said. "We'll expect him back in town tomorrow. Whether or not he practices or to what degree he practices we'll see in the morning."

Just another reason why I wasn't crazy when I heard that he pulled his groin for the second time in a one month span while missing the majority of mini-camp and all of TC up to this point.

Hopefully the second opinion will find out whats wrong and hopefully they say that its only pulled not torn.

He should at least be able to play at some point this season right? Not familiar with groin injuries nor how long they last,

They should have just given him a straight week with Carmella Bing and I do believe that groin would be feeling just fine....

Groin injuries can be quite annoying and some take quite a while to totally heal. Very easy to aggravate, as well. Hopefully, the doc in Philly can reach into his bag of tricks and find something that can get Timmons on the field soon.

Sounds a lot worse than a pulled groin if he's seeking a second opinion on it.
