    Udeze's old college injury flares up again

    The rotator cuff that allowed Udeze to move down in the draft so that we could get him was a problem in the Philly game. Tice said he noticed watching the film from the game that the injury was clearly bothering Udeze and slowing him down. Udeze may have surgery on his right shoulder this year to repair the torn cuff.

    This had better work out. When Udeze was examined by the Vikings medical staff last year, they cleared him and didn't think he would suffer any serious injury from it, like displaced shoulder. Hopefully, if he does have surgery it will go smoothly and prevent any further problems.

    Udeze's old college injury flares up again

    He's got all offseason, not the worst injury in the world I guess.

    Udeze's old college injury flares up again

    Must be hard just to move his arm at all with that kind of injury. Has anyone had that kind of injury before?

    Must make it hard to do his swim or rip move on o-linemen.

    Udeze's old college injury flares up again

    Gotta be a tough injury for a defensive lineman. I thought I read a few weeks ago, where one of the sportwriters said the shoulder was a problem. Since he is/was a rookie, I thought maybe he just hit a "brick wall"-----you know, with the season being longer, and all.

    I sure hope surgery and rehab go well.

    I think we all new before the season started, that he was gonna have to play through pain this season, and he definitely did. I commend him for that. It was pretty clear after we drafted him, that he was gonna have minor surgery during this offseason, so this isn't really a shoker to me. He will get fixed and be a huge threat on our d-line next year no doubt about it.

    Udeze's old college injury flares up again

    i think hell have a a huge, if not bigger impact than kdub did this year. i know he got so many sacks but udeze will put more pressure on the qb and more poorly thrown passes and more qb pressure. kdub cant do it by himslef and teams will tend to focus on him more than udeze and he will have a incredible 2nd year.

    Not worried about Udeze. played through pain, showed his heart, he'll heal and have a remarkable year next to our premeire player K Williams. Now if Spencer Johnson improves, O lines around the league will be worried, especially if the team makes the right decisions to pick quality LB's in free agency.
