Default Willie Parker: will he come back as the same back?

Willie Parker: will he come back as the same back?

Apart from being knocked out of the playoffs, my season low was seeing Willie Parker being taken from the field with a knee injury.

What is the latest here?

Do you think he can come back to be the same back?

Do we need to look at a Running Back in the draft in the later rounds as a "just in case"?

actually it was a broken fibula, not a knee injury. its better that he broke a bone rather than tore ligaments. i think he should be fine.

Yep.

the only problem we may have is that he loses strength from not working out. Then again. He may get some of his speed back if he sheds a few pounds of muscle.

Me too. You look at how Chris Simms was affected, although Clark didn't take the beating that Simms did in order to lose that spleen. Hopefully he'll be able to get back to form. I think he was a lot more valuable than we realized at the time.

I think Willie will be fine. I'm sure he'll work out the kinks through the first game or so, and then he'll just tear up the league. I'm sure it will be said in the media before next year by some jagoff that Willie won't be the same. We all know how Parker is when someone says he can't do something.

Yay for us.

The off-season sucks.

Willie will be just fine. He has the entire offseason to rehab his leg and get himself in shape for camp. As soon as he's given medical clearance to do so, he'll be in that gym and at the Steelers facility on the South Side working out like a madman.
