"Woke up with a bad neck"

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been covered at length already... but I was shocked to hear that Ryan Kalil was going to miss the game because he (according to the CBS guys) "woke up with a bad neck this morning."

Seriously?!?!  Thomas Davis can play with a damn broken arm but Ryan Kalil can't play because he slept on his neck funny??????

There HAD to be more to it than that.  We sorely missed him yesterday.

Tweaked it in pre game as well

Are we talking about something serious?  Or is it just one of those things where you wake up and you can't really turn your head in one direction without a sharp pain...?  That's what it sounded like to me.  I mean, that's something you can play through, right?

Kalil  is great when he's in, but over the last few years, seems like he's injured more then he's active, maybe it's just me, but every time he's out.. all I think is "AGAIN?!?!?"... wish he was more durable

Kalil is a mess. There is no telling what was actually wrong with him. Football players are always in pain, so it's likely something more.

Not going to blame a guy for not wanting to severely injure their neck... kinda an important part of your body. And having to crouch for 3 hours while looking up and then hit someone seems to be one of the worst things you could do, slightly ahead of running head first into a brick wall.

As someone who treats "bad necks" all day, its hard to say what was going on. I can tell you if it was just a "kink" in the neck he would've played. If he was having numbness or tingling into his neck, arms or fingers I would have held him out of playing.

It may be his shoulder is giving him problems again and the coaching staff doesn't want to alert other teams of his weaknesses. I am aware thats against the rules but do you really think that stops teams from doing it every week...

Prior to last year, Kalil missed one start in three seasons.

Y'all act like you haven't woken up before and literally had to turn your whole body either to the left or right because you couldn't move your neck without having excruciating pain.

You'd much rather question the toughness of our Pro Bowl center?

wow

Like I said, maybe it's just me, but my mentality is that he's injury prone
