Didn't the ankle injury happen in August with surgery in late August / early September?  My memory is not that great.

If so.. it's mid-March.  That's 6.5 months after the fact.  I thought this was one of those 8-9 months sort of injuries, but I could be wrong.  Not surprised that he wouldn't be out there.  Probably still needs to get stronger.

I wonder if that was him just getting caught up in the moment of us finally getting in a bowl game and some extremely hopeful thinking.  He would have been so far ahead of rehab schedule to play in the bowl game that I think we would want to draw some blood and see just how high his midi-chlorian count was.

If those are really the only guys not practicing, that means all these must be good to go:

Kenny Demens (shoulder surgery in February or thereabouts)

Mike Jones

Jared Van Slyke

Mike Williams

Demens is a key returning starter and it would suck if he missed spring practice. Jones could be a top contender at WLB. Williams was supposedly likely to have career-ending concussion issues. Apparently not, since he's on the roster and not mentioned on the injured list.

Wow, this actually doesn't even bother me that much. How wonderful it is to not feel like the coach might be fired due to a bad break at any moment!

I hope Shaw's hand heals quickly and completely.

Any confirming words on Mike Williams? Hoping for the best for him after the concussion.


*EDIT* I just read that is he in longer on the roster.
