OT: Maryland loses it's top two receivers to broken legs
I do not remember Stefon Diggs.
He changed his name.
You may better remember him by the name of LeQuann Tredwhell.
Here's the Post's article on the subject - LINK
Regarding Deon Long and Stefon Diggs:
"Long broke his tibia and fibula, two bones in the lower leg, while blocking on a running play early in the second quarter. Diggs suffered a fractured fibula in the fourth quarter. Both will have surgery this week. "
Best of luck to both of them in their recoveries.
Too bad for Maryland. Hope the young bones heal up fast.
Maryland lost like 4-5 QBs to injury and had to start a backup linebacker at QB for a game. As much as I like Desmond Morgan, I don't want to see him playing QB just because he played it in HS.
That is absolutely awful. I love football, but the number of injuries is really starting to make me think. I don't know if there are more, but because they're publicized more it sure feels like it.
Hope they both have speedy recoveries. I don't know much about the other kid but Diggs is a MONSTER player. Reminds me a little of Desean Jackson. Still would've loved to have had him at Michigan.
So have people just all of the sudden starting breaking legs playing football? I don't get the concern here... These things happen.
I don't think that you meant to respond to just me. #jussayin
AIRBHG or Perry the torn ACL elephant territory.
Imagine his surprise when the blindfold came off and he saw those uniformz.
Diggs was also best friends with countess and hs Teammates
Here's one of the old Diggs threads: http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/michigan-back-it-stefon-diggs
Unfortunate consequence of the target rule. Less concussions, but more broken legs and torn acls
Do you have data to back your baseless assumption?
A pretty logical conclusion, though I doubt there are any facts to support it. If you can't target up high, you will logically have to target lower. It is silly to assume that every hit that would have been a head shot will now be a perfect form tackle. There will be more people tackling low, so the chance for leg injuries should rise.
Now that any hard hit to the torso (by a DB) seems to get a targeting penalty, its only logical that players will start tackling low instead. I think someone in the NFL got knocked out for the year when a safety went helmet-to-knee after a reception
Just because I don't have data doesn't mean that it's not true. Less hits to the head=more hits somewhere else
Blocking a running play =/= a situation where targeting would be involved.
for making deals with the mafia.
think there is a chance we land Diggs.
I almost feel bad for Edsall. He hasn't done well there, but he hasn't had anything resembling a healthy team, either. They looked pretty impressive this year until they ran into the FSU buzzsaw. That loss looks a lot less bad after watching what FSU did to Clemson last night on the road. I don't think this team will be the easy win that some people are assuming (as long as they aren't starting a LB at QB, obvs).
I'll be that guy:
It's = a contraction of it is
Its = possessive adjective
It's amazing this even needs to be said.
Two or more entities named It with joint ownership of something.
Last year was bad, but man these guys can't catch a break. Oops, bad choice of words there.
You've gotta feel for those young men.
Someday in the future I hope science can find a way to heal these injuries instead of just having to put the players out of their misery.
