    I hope you dont have Deuce McAllister for Fantasty Football

    POSTED 1:04 p.m. EDT, October 10, 2005

    DEUCE IS DONE

    Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com report that Saints running back Deuce McAllister has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season.

    McAllister twisted his knee with seven minutes left in the third quarter of Sunday's blowout loss at Green Bay. At the time, the outcome was not in doubt. Thus, look for some internal finger-pointing regarding the decision to leave McAllister in the game.

    The Saints will seek a second opinion, but preliminary tests indicate a tear. With a typical rehab period of six-to-nine months, he could be ready to go when offseason workouts start kicking in next April. Then again, he might not be ready to play until training camp opens.

    McAllister, a 2001 first-rounder who fell through the top twenty picks and landed with the Saints, signed a long-term extension with the team before the start of the season -- which helped him to avoid the same fate as linebacker Ian Gold. Gold, in his contract year, didn't have a new deal in place with the Broncos before tearing up his knee during the 2003 season. He signed a face-saving long-term deal with Tampa, which turned out to be a one-year deal. He fired his agents, the Postons, and negotiated a new contract on his own with the Broncos prior to the 2005 season.

    Deuce won't have to worry about where he'll be in 2006, but he's got plenty of work to do to get himself ready to play, if the second opinion confirms that the knee is shot.

    Finally, from the "It's Better to Be Prophetic Than Pathetic" file, here's our One-Liner on the McAllister injury from Monday morning, before word of the ACL tear broke: "Saints RB Deuce McAllister says that he doesn't expect his knee injury to be serious (but haven't we heard that same kind of stuff in the past before learning that the MRI shows a popped ACL?)."

    The Saints could always try to trade for Ricky Williams. Maybe he would play for them in San Antonio, not to far from Austin.

    JK

    I wouldn't mind having Rickey next year, he could be a Curtis Martin kinda back, if he has the drive and determination, we will need to see how he runs for Miami first.

    Yeah. Lets trade Bennett for Mike McKenzie! :lol:

    I had Deuce on FF last year. I am a fast learner. No way I was picking him again. :roll:

    My gf has him, she's gonna be really mad. She has Jamal Lewis too, and LJ Smith (does anybody know the extent of his injury?). She's hurtin'.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
