    Who was it who said this kid can't stay healthy and that to invest 25 million on him was foolish?

    Better a sprain than a tear I suppose.

    Technically a sprain is a tear... A first degree sprain is only a tear of a few of the ligament fibers. A second degree sprain is a tear of anywhere between a third and almost all of the ligament fibers. A third degree sprain is a complete tear of the ligament. Smegma is right though, unless it is a third degree sprain, he should be back for the season opener. Sucks that he will miss out on a lot of preseason though - he could have benefited from the time by getting on the same page as Ponder.

    I'm not all that concernicus about this. Injuries happen in the NFL. Just glad he's only going to miss two weeks at the most which means he should be able to play in at least one preseason game.

    Albert Haynesworth to the Redskins and Javon Walker to the Raiders were much bigger
