this news is weeks old.  rivera called it a "tummy strain" during OTAs

 

e:

 

Defensive back Captain Munnerlyn had a similar schedule as Stewart. Munnerlyn is battling an abdominal strain, or as Rivera called it, "a tummy strain."

Brett Jensen just tweeted that he's going to need a tummy transplant. There goes our Superbowl.

not a big deal. he's been through enough training camps to be able to pretty quickly jump right into things once he's healed up. no sense rushing things

I hate that Kugbila is already missing time.  The kid was probably not going to contribute this year regardless, but he needs every snap and repetition these camps have to offer.  Not a great first impression

Yes because we know the extent of his injury and we would like him to risk it regardless. Great first impression.

 

I've already been hearing the Otah comparisons from Huddlers. People need to relax.

While I agree that any comparisons to Otah would be foolish, I do not think Kugbila can afford to miss time at this point in his development and that it is an important issue.

 

While I wish injury to no one on our team, Kugbila's health and participation are especially important at this juncture.  He is the main competition to supplant Hangartner as the starter at RG and has a lot to learn in order to accomplish this.  Not only is Kugbila a rookie from a D-II school, he only started 2 years for the Valdosa St Blazers and spent that time working out of a 2 point stance.  He is going to need to completely alter his stance, and numerous aspects of his game in order to be a competent NFL starter.   

 

On top of this, and though he has a solid NFL frame, his workout at the combine put up some strength training red flags.  Only having 23 repetitions in the bench press is not very impressive.  He is going to need serious time in an NFL weight room to fill out his frame and meet his natural potential. 

 

Though Kugbila has a "high ceiling" (I hate this cliché) he is a very raw talent and needs every practice he can get if he has any hope of competing at RG this year.

thats not the point at all. Hes injured, we dont know the extent and im sure he wants to be out there. This is just wasting time. We barely know anything. And you saying hes not making a good first impression is ridiculous.
