Sheldon Rankins Injured

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I keep saying it but I wish they would look into the strength and conditioning program. Injury is a part of football but it seems like we have more than our fair share....

strength and conditioning has nothing to do with a bone breaking...

Re: Sheldon Rankins Injured

The Broncos lost Vance Walker for the season due to a torn acl. The Bengals lost Andrew Billings, most likely for the season, due to a torn meniscus. Both happened today.

I hate that Rankins got hurt, but I'll take a broken bone any day over what either of the above suffered. Not to mention Kikaha. Even if it takes the full 8 weeks we still get close to 3 quarters of the season with him. We may not have dodged the bullet, but to quote the black knight, "it's just a flesh wound."

Yea you are right about that. Still though most are muscular or tendons and it seems like we always have an abundance. A break is kind of a freak thing. I didn't really think about that.

I thought it was already predetermined that he was done for the year.

Re: Sheldon Rankins Injured

How do we take injury out of the equation?
WE can't. #2s and 3s will just have to get it done.
A little help from our defense is all we need.
We have young guys and veterans down.
I think we have met our quota.
It would be nice if this was the end, but not likely.
Jordan getting back up to speed, revitalized Fairley with others...
I'm still hoping for vast improvements on defense.
My fingers and toes are crossed.

I think our defense will almost definitely vastly improved. It's a shame that in spite of that our offense will have to play better than Last year if we want it to translate into more wins.

He's in for surgery asap and then it's a 6-8 week recovery time.

Not promising anything, but T.O had the same injury in 2004 and came back 6 weeks later recording 144 yards in a superbowl.

Re: Sheldon Rankins Injured

Well, the Saints shored up the interior of the line with not one but two picks, so don't forget David Onyemata...

You also have C.J. Wilson who wasn't going to make this extreme overnight makeover of the interior defensive line...

Fairley is just going to play 20% more snaps and you'll have Onyemata and C.J. Wilson to rotate at the 3-tech...

This is a great opportunity for Onyemata to develop faster and for us to find evaluate if we need another 3-tech to really improve the D...

Don't forget Wilson had the same role on the Packers Superbowl Winning team and we're looking at him now as our 3rd string DT...
