Thread: Shazier

  1. #1

    Shazier

    what, no one wants to talk about the ugly side of the nfl rearing its ugly head?

    he delivered what didn't look like the worlds most dangerous hit. its a hit we see quite often. but he imediately lost all feeling and use of his legs

    the team announced almost imediately that he suffered a spinal contusion

    the next day they announced that he had some movement below the waist and that he would be moved to pittsburg the next day.

    yesterday they decided not to move him for some reason, and everyone stopped giving updates.

    today, they airlifted him to pittsburg where the medical team announced that they will not update his condition until they run all their tests

    doesn't sound good for a great young player

    It's a bit worrisome to be sure.


    Too bad. I wanted the Packers to move up and draft him. If he were on the Packers he'd be OK now because they train their LBs not to tackle.

    But he'd have a hammy and be out anyways.

    Nick Collins and Finley's injuries also were on 'small' hits. Most of neck/spine are about angle of impact.

    I hope for his sake he wouldn't. Remember Turd Ferguson after he got knocked out, and he didn't even break his neck.

    No, no, no. That's when it's a cornerback. When it's another position, you're supposed to say that TT knew the guy had potential medical problems and drafted him anyway because he likes drafting injured players, like Justin Harrell.

    lol I just about spit up my coffee. Maybe we should add "Packerrat Memes" to that 'glossary' thread.

    Lack of news on Ryan Shazier is disconcerting

    " ... In general, good news comes quickly, bad news slowly.

    We all like to hear and deliver good news and remain hopeful. No one likes to be the bearer of bad news.

    Doctors and NFL teams are no different.

    Regarding Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier, the worry is that no news is not good news. ..."

    If the absence of news were itself worrisome then the Packers would be perennial Eeyores. The orthopods and neurologists are running a gazillion tests on him to make sure he doesn't have stenosis and whatever else. Some Steeler players reported being told that it was a spinal concussion, which would probably mean the damage is only temporary. Could it be something more serious? Sure, but the silence is not necessarily ominous.

    Turns out he had spinal stabilization surgery last night, meaning it was much more severe injury then the team first reported

    The doctors that performed the surgery didn’t say anything about whether he’d ever be able to walk again, or if he had any feeling

    They already reported he had feeling. But they may not be willing to risk much movement (and hence no updates) until after the stabilization surgery.

    Not as eloquent as Tae but still intersting view from Finley.

    They said he had “some” feeling I believe

    Collins in particular looked run of the mill. Terrence Murphy is another one. Turned out both of them had pre-existing conditions, I wonder if that will be the case with Shazier?

    And Sterljng sharpe. Stenosis.

    My childhood friend was a Badger offensive lineman (ahead of Tauscher on depth chart). Same thing. Small hit. Loss of feeling. Ended his career.
