    Simply unreal how this team is snakebit with injuries at LB. At least we have a great coach who seems to find a way to plug up the holes. We'll still be OK on defense if nothing else happens.

    True, problem is, we haven`t done very well in the " if nothing else happens " department of late.

    Man, you couldn't make this stuff up if you tried...

    Gotta love TL's attitude though...

    Big difference in 'OK' and 'comfortably dominating'. The young secondary needs a vicious front seven, and Lewis was set to have an incredible season - just watch what he did in the CFPCG.

    This is a HUGE loss. Bama can recover and still win it all, but this one is tough...

    Right??? You know that somehow it will get labeled as "roster management."

    Best of luck in recovery Terrell!

    Actually, the theory is that the supporting muscles protect the ligaments. That's what conditioning is built around. It's also what the rehab procedure consists of. I had a hamstring graft because, back then, the success rate was much higher than with allografts (cadaver). Now, with athletes, they're nearly all allografts and the kids get back on the field amazingly quickly. Sometimes the mental aspect is much slower to come around...

    Was Lewis going to start this season? I thought that was Jennings and Miller.

    Re: More Bad News - Terrell Lewis Tears ACL

    Just Monday someone on the radio was saying how “boring” this offseason was and how nothing had happened to talk about at media days next week. I said a word or two and slammed my steering wheel because I knew the jinx was on. Then BAM! Cowan dismissed for assault then TLew goes down!!! So glad we have depth but he was such a beast I was looking forward to seeing on the field again. Best wishes for a quick recovery!!!

    You can chalk this one up as desperately groping for some semblance of a silver lining, I suppose. At least the timing could have been worse, as in, say, the week before Louisville. The staff can at least plan and extensively rep some people. Not to mention the important aspect of some younger guys having some time to " get their minds right " and prepare psychologically for bigger contributions than might have originally been thought necessary. It`s something, anyway!

    Any idea if this was a full or partial tear?

    Well, yes, but we'll presumably have someone get seriously hurt the week before Louisville, someone get seriously hurt during the Louisville game, and then before and/or during every big game after that. Most will be LBs.

    Well, it`s certainly really been hard to argue any of what you say !! Maybe we`ll have better fortunes this year. We`re damned sure due !
