Rehabbing no matter how strenuous, it not the same as participating in practice in live action. There is going to be some swelling and it will take time to get ready to play after almost 3 years of rust. There is no hurry here. Better to take it slow than rush as we did in the past.

I just want TD to be healthy and contribute. He is what every athlete should strive for in terms of personality.

It could be as simple as fatigue in the leg. He's been rehabbing it for three years after all. Supposing it was muscle fatigue, they would want him to sit because favoring a weak leg would increase the chance for injury.

Point being, it could be an innumerable amount of minor things. I wouldn't worry to much about it at this point. If he's sitting out the preseason games, you might want to worry a little bit more.

agreed with everything except the preseason games thing.

i see preseason as pretty meaningless except as a tryout for fringe players.

players that i the team is going to be relying on i really don't like them being exposed like they are in those situations where they can be on the wrong end of a guy trying to prove themselves and get knocked out for any amount of time or one of those players we rely on who don't know how to scale it back and end up getting hurt.

it's a game that has no bearing on the season. i have no problem with starting players seeing minimal time or no time at all in those games.

I just wonder what could possibly be bothering Davis already. If he's sitting out after the first day of contact, what's going to happen during the regular season?


He tore his ACL three years in a row. Thats what is bothering him.

Normally I would agree, but I see TD's case as being a little bit different. He needs live action in order to get reoriented to the speed and physicality of the game. I, for instance, won't be worried if Dwill or CJ sit out a preseason game, but I will be if TD does.

i can kind of understand that, but i think he's been around it enough to know what to expect. it won't take him long to get readjusted if he needs it. i just don't want to risk injury to him in a game that doesn't matter.

It's like a really good beer you get it from the tap and its all cold and the glass is fogged then you go to the bathroom and come back and suddenly your awesome beer is warm and sucks.

How long does it take you to go to the bathroom?

Another thing to consider...I suspect the way we want to use TD this year goes beyond the typical vanilla D you see in preseason games. Agree that we should use him sparingly. There is really nothing to gain by him being on the field other than conditioning considerations.

It also seems likely that even if all goes well, TD will be one of those guys that do not practice much mid-week.

TD should retire

Maybe far from your intent, but spoken like a person who has no clue what the doctors, training staff, coaches, management, and the man himself think about that knee. Let him live his life, and let the team decide how they respond to his desire and attempt to come back from his injury....I've decided that's good enough for me....I doubt Rivera is hanging his hat on TD recovering, but I'm sure he's all in if TD shows he can play some more ball..

Is the tweet about Cam keeping his arm warm with a coach in between down times something to be concerned about for any reason? Puzzled on that update
