Was there any report on the extent of Carvin Johnson's injury? I didn't hear anything, but hope he's okay.
But from what I saw, Prison Abs looked more than adequate as his replacement. No gaping mistakes.
EDIT: From Tim
Rodriguez doesn't know Carvin Johnson's status next week. JR Hemingway should play. Terry Talbott still working on a clearinghouse issue.
I f*cking love that nickname!!
It didn't seem horribly serious, but hopefully RR will address in the presser.
he was limping pretty bad, hopefully it ain't too serious
Per Rivals. Supposedly he's day to day.
...he said he was week to week. (according to another website)
It sound's like he'll be back but probably not for awhile.
Perhaps we can find a third website to find him classified as minute to minute.
I have full confidence in the Prison Abs.
...at least based on admittedly terrible evidence: a Google search on "sprained MCL week." But it really depends on how badly he sprained it, of course.
Knee injuries are not fun (I had my ACL surgically replaced four weeks ago).
6-8 weeks with sprained MCL currently. Now sprains very in severity, but I expect soonest we see him back is after the BG game - hope I am wrong.
Did anyone else freak the hell out when he went down? And then again when Molk went down?
I was freaking badly. Then Denard and Molk both went back in. I think Carvin's was the only injury that's going to keep someone out against ND.
If Denard or Molk were injured bady, well, I don't even want to speculate [throws salt backwards over shoulder, knocks wood, waves incense, circles three times backwards around statute of Jobu] . . . .
was the one play of the day that really bothered me on numerous levels.
I don't know, but can anybody explain why it would not have been good for a defensive timeout there? Our defense was not set. They were confused; I am not sure if Carvin Johnson's injury related to his not being set. Maybe somebody who saw it on tv will know better what happened on the play itself.
But having been there, the whole down looked just awful. We have got to have a defensive QB on the field who can call a timeout in that situation.
On a day when I was relieved and proud of the way our defense played for the most part -- great credit to Greg Robinson -- that play stood out as one where we were not ready, and apparently caught in a sidlines oversight or some on-field confusion.
It seemed to me that that was a very bad, very ugly coaching lapse that must be ultimately attributed to Robinson.
Am I mistaken here? I know what I saw, but I'd like to make sure I know all the facts.
No, you're not mistaken. You're completely right. There definitely should have been a timeout taken on that play. Players were switching from left to right and weren't even close to being in place at the time of the snap.
