Preliminary from Batch on SN radio...Torn ACL possibly
Adam Schefter has reported season ending torn ACL.
That sucks, get well for next year kid!!
I ****ing knew it. Ugh...
Time to see if you can make a trade for a LB or pick someone off the waiver wire.
I hate to read all the unofficial twitter stuff but do people generally heal from a torn ACL with the same top speed?
I know Rod Woodson was able to come back and didnt lose a step although he went to safety.
Terrell Owens actually ran a faster 40 after he blew out his knee or leg.
I remember the Steeler LB from Miami who tore up his leg and took a couple years to come back.
Thoughts? I guess its all speculation and everyones different but he was just starting to get adjusted to the speed of the game and he was like a heat seeking missile at Michigan.
Thats just awful. Not surprised though.. His had an awful grimace on his face and was clearly in alot of pain and then the pounding of the fists on ground..
Yeah if true this is very unfortunate.
Not sure if we are going to do as well moving forward without him. Thankfully the team does have a much better array of contingency plans with Bush than they did with Shazier. The issue though is that Green Dot.
I would imagine that Vince will call plays at this point. I doubt Tomlin will give the reigns to Spillane at this time. It will have to be a committee approach now.
Spillane had the green dot today.
The question remains as to if Spillane will keep it moving forward this season?!
Wow, terrible news if it is season ending.
Marcus Allen has been practicing with the ILB’s. I’d imagine they’ll stick with what they have. You never know though.
On the surface I’m a little concerned with Spillane calling the defense, but who knows he may be great at it.
I hope so!!
We will have to wait and see.
He is the next man up now and played very well coming in after the unfortunate Devin Bush injury. They also have Ulysees Gilbert lll but need to grab someone off the waiver wire. Jayrone Elliot is on the PS as well.
This is horrible news if he is out for the season.
I feel bad for him. Get well soon.
Dreadful news. He will come back stronger!
Spillane looked good when he came in but the Steelers were so dominant that you can’t really make any sort of meaningful assessment on him. They may need to trade for some depth if nothing else.
Damn it anyway
I think it must be accurate since its been tweeted
I was hoping for Bush to really put it altogether and was a little disappointed with his production this year. Tough loss and next man up theory. Spillane looked good but what about depth will need to pick someone up.
