Adopt-a-Bronco:
Eric Decker
Default Decker and Thomas updates

I didn't see this posted anywhere. Got it on rotoworld.com.

Fox 31s Josina Anderson reports that Broncos WR Eric Decker suffered a left foot sprain, not left ankle sprain like previously speculated.

Anderson also reports that a pre-MRI detected evidence of a previously existing high ankle sprain. In short, when Decker went down yesterday doctors found both a pre-existing high ankle sprain in addition to a left foot sprain. What does this all mean? If the MRI confirms aggravation of Decker's previous Lisfranc fracture he'll be looking at missing extended time. Any way you cut it things don't look good for Decker.

-----------------------------

Fox 31 Denver's Josina Anderson reports that Demaryius Thomas' left foot injury is an aggravation of his pre-Combine fracture.

Sunday's tests, including a CT scan, are expected to determine whether the soreness is from "old or new damage, a combination of both, and to what extent." One source tells Anderson the initial belief is that "it's not that serious." Thomas reportedly struggled early in camp, lacking confidence in his foot. The past two days, however, he had been coming on strong, highlighted by a pair of TD catches just prior to the re-injury.

This actually makes a lot of sense, there was a lot of good early press, and a sudden drop off this week. I suspect that this injury was hitting early.

Well at least it sounds like it's good news on Thomas' end. It's too bad with Decker, but hopefully if he isn't able to contribute much this year we won't rush him back onto the field and let him recover for next year.

Good move. At this rate they won't have any players left come Sept. 12.

Not a terrible idea. Time to get whatever is the water out of it.

Me either. What is a "pre-MRI"? And a sprained foot does not necessarily mean an aggravation of a previous fracture. It could just mean a sprained foot. Guess she felt the need to write something. Wake me when the tests come in.

Anybody surprised Decker's hurt? That's been the story of this guy's career at Minnesota and will continue to be so on the next level. Great player when heallthy, unfortunately it never stays that way for long.

That would be pretty normal then. It's going to cause some discomfort from time to time when it is stressed. Reports said he walked off the field and to the locker room under his own power.

I think the hope is that now that he has given up baseball and is able to condition himself for football in the offseason that will not continue to be the case. Unfortunately, he spent this offseason recovering from the fracture. Hopefully the sprain is just a minor setback.

Sucks about Decker. Guys that are prone to soft tissue injuries never really get better from them. Ligaments and tendons never truly heal back to 100%. I also wonder if they don't have some genetic predisposition to somewhat weaker connective tissue that makes them get so many different soft tissue injuries. These injury prone guys can have a couple productive seasons or be good while they aren't injured, but can rarely stay in the line-up on a regular basis.

Has there ever been a guy that had multiple knee or ankle injuries in college that was able to stay consistently healthy in the pros?

He would have been one of the greatest NFL running backs of all time if he didn't have two ACL tears in college.

He's still a very good pro, but looked like he was going to be the best UM running back of all time as a true freshman in 2001. When he got the oppurtunity to spell Portis, he averaged almost 10 yards per carry.

Huh? He had missed one game in his college career (junior season) until he got hurt last year. Try not to overexaggerate too much.

That Miami team was unbelievable to have that much talent like they did.
Look at all the Pro's from that team.

Willis Mcgahee, Najeh Davenport, Andre Johnson, Antrell Rolle, DJ Williams, Ed Reed, Kelly Jennings, Sean Taylor, Phillip Buchannon, Frank Gore, Rocky McIntosh, Vince Wilfork, Bryant McKinnie, Kellen Winslow, Jonathan Vilma, Roscoe Parrish, Jeremy Shockey, William Joseph, Brett Romberg, Martin Bibla, Jerome McDougle and Kevin Everett.

2008 season
Decker finished his junior season with 84 catches for 1,074 yards and seven touchdowns.[1] He either sat out or played with neck, shoulder and leg injuries in several games.[2]

2009 season
Decker began the season with the consistent, elite play that had been a hallmark of his Gopher career. Through 3 games, Decker is 6th in the nation in receiving yards, averaging 124.8 per game. Sports Illustrated columnist Stewart Mandel declared Decker the 3rd best wide receiver in college football, behind Oklahoma State's Dez Bryant and Georgia's AJ Green.[3]
On October 27, it was announced that Decker was going to miss the rest of the season (4 games) after suffering a sprained foot against Ohio State. The injury was confirmed as the Lisfranc spraign which required surgery and is notoriously difficult to come back from in football.[4]


Good call junior. Do a little research. I watch a lot of Big 10 games and saw him leave the field a bunch during his junior season as well.

Your first bolded point doesn't do much. He played through injuries and occasionally went off the field to get checked up before being able to return or not. These were not large injuries that kept him from missing significant time in 2008.

Herc's point was that he missed one whole game due to injury, prior to his lisfranc injury this past year in his collegiate career. He was right.

Do you remember which games he was leaving back in 2008? I doubt you do.

I've had the ability to go to several Gophers games and see most all their broadcasts over the past five years because I am a spit away from the Twin Cities. You are not being genuine with your statements regarding the health issues concerning Decker. His lisfranc injury that ended his fabulous campaign in 2009 was the only major one of his entire career with the Golden Gophers.

Get a clue.

He missed 5 games due to injury in four years...four of the five last year when he hurt his foot. Am I missing some secret stat or insider thing where it is stated differently?
