Here's to a camp with no serious injuries, all work and no drama.  I am going to try to make it to Sparkle City on Monday.  Last year broke my streak of attending training camp going back almost 20 years.

It probably won't be until closer to the end of camp, but I'll be nervous every day we're practicing on the far fields. It seems like we lose someone to an ACL every year on that practice field.

I was there the day a safety broke his hip bone in TC.  You could literally hear it snap.  The screaming was heart-wrenching. It was Charles Godfrey or Dion Grant, I can't remember...

I was there in the 2016 training camp when TD and Ryan were going at it in a drill and Kalil hurt his shoulder. Outside of my posting about it, I don’t remember much news on it. That was the start of the end for him. He missed 18 games in 2016/2017 and gutted out 2018 before finishing missing 9 games in his last year. That was the start of the OL injury fest of 2016. I knew it was bad because Kalil was off by himself with the trainer on the far field and TD ran over to check on him again after a bit. I think he missed the rest of the pre-season and started week 1, but only made it 6 full weeks and then played 1 more partial game.

I'm not 100% certain they will be practicing anywhere but Gibbs stadium this year. Not sure.

Having a guy like CMC makes an OLs job easier. There's going to be a lot of CMC/Hubbard I hope. Moton is back.

Sam? It's put up or shut up time, same for Brady. I hope they love the challenge and take advantage.

I looked it up; it was Grant back in rookie season in 2000.  They thought he would never play another down in football. Luckily he made it a back and had a decent career playing for several different teams. 

Yeah, training camp injuries suck and we are due for one or more every camp; one of which is usually a starter.  KK was last year.  Ryan had a pretty clean injury history until then and was never the same afterwards.

Short was a bit different. Grant and Kalil were “new” injuries, nothing in the past to predict. Short re-injured his shoulder that made him miss 13 games last year. We should have learned from Ryan’s shoulder/neck injury that if you play on the line and you are 30/31, it’s time to let them go after the first time You get hurt. Short never should have made the “rebuilding” roster after missing 14 games in 2019. Ryan and Short missed 23 combined games in year 2 of the shoulder injuries after missing 22 games in year 1.
