Jeff Byers MCL Sprain

13 posts in this topic

Center Jeff Byers suffered an MCL sprain in the third quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers game. He refused to come out of the game. Rivera had take the day off to rest the knee, but praised the backup for his toughness.

I recall there being a piece about Kalil and Byers not too long ago. I like seeing this kind of toughness on the team, especially after shoulders have been destroyed from reaching too high for the Doritos (Oh Otah... what will you hurt next?)

Although I love toughness most people aren't so fortunate. Some rupture their achilles...

Wasn't sure why we kept him on the roster, but now I'm on board with it. Always nice to have that kind of toughness on the team.

Tribal attitude is developed over time. Year two seems to be heading in the right direction.

That kind of energy feeds a locker room, which is why I think Rivera kept him around. Not that he's going to start a revolution or anything, but toughness like that is being emphasized by the coach. I'll make sure to make a thread about how we should trade Hurney Badger for Dan "Tha Spider" Snyder to keep it with the usual flow.

Wasn't Byers "Captain Penalty" in one of the games? Maybe Miami?

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
