What happened to Vaccaro

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; but I'm wondering if adding that kind of muscle at a rapid rate would lead to those injuries and make him slower? Sounds like after last year, he would drop some muscle?...

"I feel good. I知 100. I got my body back right. I feel like I知 in just as good of shape as I was my rookie year, finally," said Vaccaro, who battled a series of injuries throughout last season, including a hamstring injury he hadn't revealed before.

Vaccaro said he was still fighting through the nagging pain of the fractured ankle he suffered in December 2013 for most of last season. On top of that, he said he suffered a grade 2 hamstring tear in Week 1 and a grade 2 quad tear in December.

"I think I was in denial about it a little bit," said Vaccaro, who was eventually deactivated in Week 17 because an MRI showed the quad injury was worse than initially thought. "My ankle really hurt the whole season, and I kinda just masked it, had to get through it. At the same time, we lost two safeties so I知 not about to just go down. And I had the hamstring and the quad, two tears. ... So it sucked, but at the same time, I知 out there, and if I知 out there and I知 playing, I gotta execute. ...

"But no excuses this year. I知 healthy, and I知 just ready to play."

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I think that explains a lot. Just like Jahri Evans playing through a torn wrist ligament last season... It makes sense now. I have no issue with Kenny and I'll be rooting for him.

Yes... you're right - my bad! Not until you corrected me did I remember. Thanks.
