Ant Wright posted about rumors regarding Tarik Black.  Someone in the thread says its a bad leg injury.

Was just about to post this exact thread. Saw this on Twitter and the 247 forums. Doesn't look good, but I'm hoping it's bs. We know for a fact he was healthy a few days ago when he talked to the media.

If he was on a Scooter it doesnt necesarily mean he won't be ready to play in a week if needed. For example, a scooter may be used for a quicker recovery for soft muscle/ligament pain from overuse, lots of minor ailments go away in a few weeks, but with 100% off load bearing and less movement they heal quicker.

Our bodies sometimes protest when we go all out for three weeks. Here's hoping...

If we're talking scooters the only experience I have is when I broke 3 bones in my foot and had to use a scooter for a few weeks. I hope his experience isn't the same as mine, but I would guess he'll probably be back at some point in the season even if he is hurt. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Even if he isn hurt, I'm more worried about the OL play. I think we'll be fine if OL play is ok at least.

I must remember it wrong, who in our two deep was injuried coming out camp last year? OL was healthy, WR were all heathy, QB healthy, top RBs healthy, top 2 TE healthy, all starting DL healthy, LB healthy, DB healthy, I remember a couple of incoming freshman and our No. 4 TE that were injuried at the start of the season. I would say that is pretty good to start a season.

I’m the physician that described Newsome’s likely course, as posterior knee dislocation comes with a pretty stereotypical set of injuries.  I was not the one commenting on Crawford-I’m not on Twitter, so that ain’t me!  If rumors about Black’s injury are true, I wonder when it happened.  Let the dust settle and see what is going on.

He will if he needs to.  And neither does Dwumfour, Ross, Ruiz.. All guys expected to contribute at a high level.  Nico has been called the best wide receiver of camp and Martin was pushing Perry.  You're confusing what is necessary with what is ideal.  When injuries happen guys have to step up.

First things first: Best wishes to Tarik. I hope he can recover from whatever injury he may have.

Now, WTH do you mean we're "cursed?!" Some data would be helpful. Do we have a higher average number of preseason injuries than other teams? If so, what are the numbers?
