    Yeah he so fast and I'm sure they haven't put him in the their scheme. One false step and he's gone.

    I think CNS totally misspoke. Stress fractures occur over a period of time...

    That's a horrible injury. I've broken a bunch, but never anything like a compound...

    Then again it could be that could have been the straw that broke the camel's back. But I'm no doctor. I just hope he returns as close to 100% as he can be.

    I'd think that, at this point, the only limiting factor on his speed would be the pain factor and, for a big game, they'll make sure he doesn't hurt, within reason, I mean. I agree that it would be a nightmare for the ND DC to have him and Cooper to cover at top speed. We had a different passing attack until we lost him. I was salivating over our passing attack this year, then Black goes down, then White goes down, then two others are slowed by injury and Bell goes down. How many schools have enough quality depth to maintain a decent passing attack, losing that many quality receivers...

    That's frequently true, but, in those cases, it's months, years, or, sometimes, as I said, never. Remember the big center for Kentucky, Bowie? There have been many more careers ended by stress fractures. Of course, "stress" means what it says and I've never in my life heard of a stress fracture to the fibula, because it's under no stress, comparatively. Beau coup, of course, with the tibia...

    Hopefully we keep 'em healthy next year because I can't remember a time where we've had 3 legitimate and game-action proven over-the-top threats like Cooper, Bell, and White. Black could be a fourth and Christion Jones is probably going to have the light come on soon like Bell and White this year.

    You know, we've suffered some real injury body blows this year in the skill positions. It's just so wild that we could absorb them and get where we are...

    I've done the same which is why I get nervous when I think about him playing in this game.

    True. I'm confident that our staff will do the right thing...whatever that ends up being.

    It was awful... I was 16 though and got through it. Was very blessed to have an excellent surgeon in Florence back then who was willing to try anything to save the lower leg... I've been told a lesser doc might have elected to take it. I had a lot of exposure and a pretty ragged break, and infection was constant.

    Always think of Pro when this comes up...

    I wonder if all the talk is similar to the Black situation in the SECCG, just one more thing for ND to think about. Fine by me.

    I naturally thought of Pro when you described it. You were lucky, particularly with your ortho surgeon...
