Are we at the end of the Rhodes...?

Recommended Posts

Dr. David Chao, a doctor that generally tends to be accurate when it comes to injuries like this, seems to think that Rhodes has suffered one of the few hamstring injuries that would actually require surgery. If that’s the case, it would certainly end Rhodes’ season.

Based on the position of injury, worry for proximal hamstring avulsion injury. If true, it is one of the few hamstring injuries that require surgery.

I’m not a doctor, but a major hamstring injury that requires surgery, on an expensive, not-young player, at a position where speed and explosiveness is key, is a big worry. 

Ove never heard of a hamstring needing surgery, but considering that is pretty much the biggest muscle in the body... not good

Chao has been wrong in the past on his armchair diagnoses, i will mention that.

That would certainly suck, but that just means that Holton Hill's gotta grow up real fast.

Losing Hughes and Rhodes may be tough to overcome. 

Will they both be able to come back next season starting at 100%?

I've been thinking they should trade Wayne's for if they can get a decent pick but this could change things

Other than leaving Adams wide open, he's been solid I think

He got fooled badly on that play, but for the most part yes...he can't do that against Tom Brady though (and he wouldn't have got away with it against Rodgers if Rhodes had gotten injured earlier in the game).

Good Gawd.....I'm currently zero percent worried about this injury.   He'll be back with us in a week or two.  I'm no doctor, but that is just my guess given this players history.

He's played through some nagging injuries in the past, but he never really has looked in as much pain as he did last night.

Does Rhodes get hurt more than any other player in NFL history? Seems like he has to leave every game at least once or twice because of injury.

....your perception of this player's history. You have exactly no context or reasonable excuse to make such a claim about a player's toughness.

Exaggerates based on what? That he continuously plays through injuries?

Amazing. Players used to get praised for that level of toughness.

Honestly, he hasn't been the same corner this year - whether it's injury or something else going on I couldn't say. I think, for cap reasons, he's on the team next year, but the year after when we have to make a decision on Waynes' long term future... based on this season I'm siding with Trae
