Beason likely headed to IR

it's not his achilles.

it's his knee.

different injury.

And what exactly is the "knee" injury? And I'm sure its connected in some way to not being completley healed from the achilles injury.

Lets be honest, Carolina Panthers are atleast 5 years away from anything.

I don't buy that. Even the worst team can be turned around in 2 years max with the right moves. A good draft or two while sprinkling in a couple mid-priced FA's, and good coaching on both sides of the ball, can work wonders.

If it takes 5 years, we're doing it wrong.

What exactly is is knee problem? Sprain, tear? What?

And I wouldn't be so quick to write him off guys... I think the knee issue could be related to overworking and/or not giving the achilles time to properly heal. Often times when one injury in your lower body isn't properly healed, it will have effects on other areas overcompensating for the original injury.

It could be as simple as that.

THIS.

Thats why they are having an MRI.. to find out. Could be something simple, he may come in at 100% next season.

Not much of a surprise. As DeMeco Ryans can attest to, it seems to take 18-24 months to fully recover from an achilles tear. I just wonder if Beason will get that chance with the Panthers. Wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't unless he's willing to restructure that deal.

T-Sizzle didn't get the memo.

T-Sizzle didn't get the memo.

Suggs only had a partial tear, not a complete tear like Ryans and Beason:

"We do a conditioning test every year, and I was practicing it," Suggs said in a text to Wilson. "I went to stop and turn and I thought I sprained it. Went to doc and said it's a partial tear."

That doesn't mean that the knee injury isn't a direct result of overstressing caused by coming back from the achilles injury faster than he should have. The same thing happens to guys who have ankle injuries, rush back, and end up with hamstring problems. They're probably related and the knee is probably not going to be better until his achilles is healed properly.

He was back at superhuman speed from a full achilles tear - man needed more time. IR should allow him to have it.

Unrelated to the post I quoted: This team, of all the teams in the world, certainly shouldn't be calling his career over after we saw TD do what he's doing.

Honest question: How many more of these are we going to take from Beason, before he gets the Thomas Davis treatment?

I love him, but we have big money invested in him, and he can't stay on the field.
