Default Legursky down AGAIN

Good grief. Again - what is with these o-linemen? If we make it through 1 game this year without an o-lineman going down I'll be shocked. Ben has even stated that "It seems our guys go down more often than other teams."

This is a broken record but what is everyone's thoughts? We've discussed conditioning but even before Kugler we have had issues.

Just a dislocated toe.

Gilbert and Kemo could be back as early as next week though. I am confused why Jamon Meredith hasn't got any playing time with all the injuries though. If Essex goes down, he will be the the last active roster lineman we have and you think he should get some playing time while there are still an extra lineman or two.

I think part of the problem is that they are being driven into each other far more than other teams Olinemen, which causes them to trip over eachother, trip over the other teams players, etc. While most linemen hold their ground, ours are often being driven back, which is an injury waiting to happen.

That's what I've been thinking too - always see them tripping over each other. It doesn't help that some of their first reactions re to step backwards when bull rushed. BTW - I missed what had happened to Troy - what's going on there?

Troy,. Tomlin said may have had a concussion. And they kept him out for precautionary reasons Hopefully he's ok. No idea what it is with our O-line. We seem to get a guy on it injured every week which ain't good.

Thanks - I was in the middle of cookin' so I didn't get a chance to see press conference. Yea - not a good time to see Troy sit out. We need to find some ways to at least go 3-1 while being smart with him. Having him healthy for long haul is more important. (If we are lucky enough to be in it for the long haul that is)

Probably because they picked him up in an alley playing craps and never figured they'd need him.

The injuries are going to happen. Some teams are going to be riddled by injuries during one year and then another the next year. Look at the Bengals in 2008, I think they had 25 players go on the DL that season. Good thing is that when injuries happen you find out what your reserves are all about and some players end up making a name for themselves.
