    Huge blow.

    Hopefully can make a full recovery... and won't end up like that other former 3rd round O-line pick that was expected to do great things, till he broke his leg in training camp.

    crushing. Ankle surgery is big time though--heavy rehab.

    Just heard on 790 Nick missed all 2014 with a torn up knee. Why never heard this before?... especially recent days?

    Dude will play one season in 3 years with 2 serious injuries :mad:

    Nothing that has happened has made those statements false. He WAS doing great before he got injured. Ankle surgery is NOT life threatening.

    As an aside, **** YOU FOOTBALL GODS! :mad:

    that wouldn't be such a bad move. Brock might be running for his live ala Carr.

    Center is a tough, tough place for a rookie to excel at.

    I'm kind of relieved a journeyman will (probably) be starting now.

    Unlike with Carr, Oz gets the ball out really fast consistently. This would really help him. I still see him taking some sacks though.

    Washington snatched him.

    His concussion issues make him a time-bomb.

    He had 7 games playing behind some of the worst pass pro in the NFL... maybe he's used to it.
