Jon Beason tweaks hamstring

48 posts in this topic

It has been said before on this thread that this kind of injury may not be too serious in the short term, but if Beason doesn't give it 5-7 days to heal, it could be a long term nightmare.

He can't play on Sat. Which is fine we will get to see Davis in as an obvious starter and this might force McDermott to start Kuechly at MLB. With the Texans' elite running game, Owens the TE who is productive there, and Schaub playing about a quarter in week 1, this will be an excellent test for the rookie.

I'm sure Beason didn't want things to work out this way. We will have to wait to see our LBs at full strength.

I hope our starters only play one series, we don't need ANYONE seriously hurt.

i'd rather they not play in any games that don't matter at all.

no pre-season games.

no pro-bowl.

rivera may need to hide another pair of shoulder pads.

it could be that they made it sound worse than it really is (even tho they didn't make it sound bad to begin with). lots of teams find injury excuses so that they can sit the guys they don't want to risk to unnecessary injury in pre-season games.

Anyone who thinks we will see much of the starters this weekend just aren't paying attention.The whole point of preseason is to narrow down the 90 guys who came to camp to our active roster size of 53. The excitement of preseason is to see the second and third team guys not the starters until at least the 3rd preseason game.

there are very few "starters" who should see more than one drive.

Our rookie LG, Bell, Luke, Ss may get some extra work.....but I don't want to see the other guys hardly at all.

And Steve Smith shouldnt play a snap. In any game IMO.

I almost expected this to happen.

Hamstring injuries usually occur when guys try to push past their top speed while running.

Or maybe the ham is making up for weakness somewhere else and was over used. Possible...
