Its a blow, but its not devastating.
It's devestating not having your predicted starter starting that NEVER works out, & if so name a time I like Richardson there but Jenkins isn't going to suffice there a reason we drafted Rankins where we did or even bringing Kevin Williams back would soften the blow but the damage is done

Kevin Williams has signed a one day contract with the Vikes and has announced his retirement.
Done deal guys.

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.
