You mean the owners are most interested in protecting their own $$$$ and do not give a rat's a** about the health of the players except insofar as it impacts the team's financial bottom line?

There have been a LOT of players getting injured with torn ACLs this year. So there is a lot of creedence to what the op says.

QFT. However, I don't blame the NFL. If the NFLPA had demanded retirement benefits years ago, a lot of these lawsuits wouldn't even be in litigation.

I think its a cop out. Keller had his back to the Defense, Swearinger could have easily taken a shot at the ribs of Keller and lit him up. DB's diving at guys knees always seemed like a cheap way out to me when guys are head up, but that hit could have been better by Swearinger.

I still agree that all the head shot hype has got guys aiming lower though, but more at the belt line, not the top of a guys socks.

He should have aimed for where the ball was. Take him down and cause a fumble without the injury.

And wrong forum

That would be the textbook move - high school player in Atlanta made it Friday night and was killed

De’Antre Turman, an 11th grader and cornerback for the Seminoles, died after being hurt on the Banneker High School field in College Park, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed on Saturday.

Turman, 16, died of a broken neck later Friday night at Grady Memorial Hospital. The Medical Examiner’s Office said Turman’s death resulted from his neck vertebrae being broken “due to blunt force trauma.”...

Turman was one of the state’s top prospects for the 2015 class. Many colleges had planned on evaluating him this season. He got his first major-college scholarship offer in June from Kentucky...

“Tre broke on it, dislodged the ball and his body just went limp. (He) immediately just went limp and he was on the ground,” Ford said

Dustin Keller (knee) out for Miami Dolphins' season

By Marc Sessler
Around the League Writer
Aug. 19, 2013

The Miami Dolphins expected the worst after Dustin Keller suffered a grisly right knee injury in Saturday's preseason loss to the Houston Texans.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport confirmed the inevitable Sunday, reporting that Keller will be lost for the entire season, according to a source informed of the injury. Specifically, Rapoport reported Keller tore his ACL, PCL, MCL and also dislocated his kneecap. That's similar to the string of injuries suffered by current 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore last October.

In an email sent to Rapoport on Sunday, Keller expressed his gratitude for all the support he's received from family and fans.

"I just want everyone to know that as disappointing as this is I don't want anybody feeling sorry for me," Keller wrote. "It's going to be a hard road back, but I promise I'm going to come back stronger, faster and be a better player than before.

"I'm very confident that my team is going to have a great season and even though I won't be on the field this year I am behind my guys 100%! More than anything, I'd like to thank all my family, friends and teammates for their prayers and support. I'm glad to have the support system in my life that I do."

The injury leaves a gaping hole in Miami's roster. The team was busy calling around for tight end help Sunday morning, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, but Keller's pass-catching ability won't be replaced.

He was brought in to give young quarterback Ryan Tannehill a sure-handed target underneath, one who would keep defenses honest and spring Mike Wallace free downfield. Now a combination of Charles Clay, Michael Egnew and rookie Dion Sims will attempt to fill Keller's shoes. Miami will be forced to realign its offensive approach through the air.

For Keller, it's a crushing blow after he signed a one-year contract this offseason, essentially betting on himself to produce a monster season in Miami. After witnessing his early chemistry with Tannehill, that seemed likely, but now the Dolphins are left to pick up the pieces.

With an injury of this magnitude, it's fair to wonder if and when Dustin Keller will play again.
