What does his "toughness" have to do with an Achilles tear?

im aware, however achilles tears take a lot to cause, and a good number of players spend the first few weeks of an offseason in rehab mode, especially someone like DT whos been out for so long with so many injuries. hard to see what drill or training he would have been doing that would have caused it this early in offseaosn.

it doesn't matter. tebow doesn't need a receiver. He can throw it to himself.

Well, they are a good month into the offseason so I am guessing his offseason workouts were well under way. He was probably doing some speed or agility drills.

This is not only a brutal rehab, but it is very hard to come back 100% especially for an athlete whose speed and explosivelness is so important.

Damn, this truly sucks. I don't care what any of the knuckle draggers on here have to say, that kid has some of the best hands I've ever seen. If he can't cut it, it sucks big time.

depends on the player, some guys like stevie smith from BUF started training a week after the season, some guys who were injured or whatever rehab for a month or two. and even then if he is in the first few weeks of his program, he would have had to seriously mess up..

guess he was working out in georgia (not necessarily GT, it just says georgia right now) and tore it. wonder what he was doing

Poor verbage on my part. Frustrating with this guy, too bad this is an actual serious injury.
