Yup. The third repair of Davis' right knee seems to have held. His third one was back in 2011 and he's still going strong.

I think his second surgery was to finish an improper initial surgery and was not major.

Read the same. That's correct.

Maybe we'll finally have a solid pass rush rotation this season! I can't wait to see both Kikiha and Okafor in action. I can always tell how good we're going to be by the 2nd and 3rd preseason game...I'm remaining optimistic. Let's go Kiki.

Corners stay healthy and we don't really need a solid pass rush. Any sort of pass rush will be better than in the past. Every play last year was up to the DBs. Can't wait to see them with even a little better pass rush. If we have a solid pash rush this defense could be fun to watch again. Especially with the turnovers we are seeing in camp. If any positive came from last year it's the fact that even the backup corners had to learn to play on an island. Chalk last year up to 16 games of 1 on 1 practice for the corners.

I actually think we're deep at corner.

We are but I'm not sold on the ability of Breaux, Swann, and PJ staying healthy I doubt they all make it anyway. I do believe we have more quality depth than we did last year. With our injury history there we need to keep as many as we can.

Still have serious concerns about him not only playing on a recovering knee, but a knee that is now carrying, supporting an add'l 20-25 lbs...That's tremendous!!!

Would love to chat with the doctors and kinesiologists involved, maybe one day attend a case study on the particulars because this is beyond the scope of what is normally seen in these ACL treatments...
