NEW ORLEANS (Sept. 19, 2004) -- New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister was knocked out of his team's game against the San Francisco 49ers with a sprained right ankle and was not expected to return.

On McAllister's third carry, he was tackled by Bryant Young and fumbled. He stayed on the Superdome turf for some time after the 49ers recovered the ball.

McAllister walked off the field. On the sideline, a trainer wrapped his leg in ice before loading him onto a cart for the trip to the locker room. X-rays were negative.

I just hope it's not serious enough for him to miss a game...

Hey, Deuces only contribution again today was a turnover and we won without him, so what makes you think we couldnt do it again?

I want dismissing him I was dissing him, His performance the last two weeks has been marginal at best and I think his play and attitude over the last two weeks has hurt the team more than helped them and the name\'s not Billy, It\'s Lynn. I am not saying that Deuce is the problem, but he is a part of the problem, blames all around.

Duece is not the problem. The problem is we keep running TE sets. Te\'s are not suppose too open holes for you the fullback is. If we would of not gotton rid of Terelle Smith we would not have this problem.

Not to mention when you give up 100 yards rushing on defense of course your going to get teams scoring 20 points a game on you. Now I guess i\'m contridicting myself but if you have a sold rushing game you keep defenses scoring so much. I must say though we must stop using the TE too open holes for Duece, or stecker now and use the FB.

Deuce is supposed to be out for 4 to 6 weeks. Ricky had the same injury and sat out for a full six weeks. I\'m not trying to be a pessimist, but maybe this is what the team needed. Everyone knew Deuce would get 1500 yards and 15 TD\'s, now everyone has to work and I do mean work. The opposing defenses won\'t know how we are going to come at that from week to week. I\'m not saying I wanted Deuce to get hurt, but we were all asking for something or someone to step up and it looks like once again it was Deuce in a wierd sorta way.

Geaux Deuce Geaux!!!

The Moonshiners will be all over you for posting this, but you could be right.

PLUS:

there\'s 4 to 6 fumbles off the board...just like that.

That\'s a valid point. Half of McCarthy\'s playbook just went bye-bye--ie: run deuce left, run deuce right, and
run deuce down the middle. It\'ll be interesting to see how creative the coaching staff will be in the next
4-5 weeks. I\'m hoping for the best and cringing in anticipation.
