  • Bronco injuries and the inevitable setback...somethings amiss

    I know im going to catch hell for this, but come on. Every Bronco who has significantly hurt themselves over the past two years cant recover. Who performs the freaking surgeries for this team? JD Walton was supposed to be our starting center, can't freaking get healthy and is put on IR. Kuper is still ****ed up with his ankle nearly two years later. Joel Dressen has been **** this year and worthless despite sitting out training camp. Champ couldn't get his foot right. I mean, where there is smoke, there is fire. Our medical staff has issues.

    Look at all the "setbacks". Geez Louise.

    Al Wilson Files Grievance Against Broncos


    Posted Fri Mar 14th by Monty

    [Al Wilson]Al Wilson has filed a grievance against the Denver Broncos regarding the neck injury he sustained in November 2006, the Denver Post reports. The suit claims that Wilson was not properly informed by the Broncos’ physicians of the seriousness of his condition, stating that he further aggravated his ailment by playing in the following 3 games.

    Article XLIV of the Collective Bargaining Agreement states that any such diagnosis must be related to the player in writing. The case for the grievance is already a week into its proceedings, with more testimony to follow.

    Had Wilson been made aware of the seriousness of his condition, he claims he would have avoided further injury and ready to play in 2007. He is suing the Broncos for his 2007 base salary of several million dollars.

    More gut wrenching news from Broncos camp. I clearly remember the Broncos saying they were surprised that Wilson failed his Giants physical… claiming their physicians cleared him might be their only chance to escape this.

    Wilson’s chances of a return with Denver were already slim to none… now they’re jjust a lot closer to none.

    Nate Jackson: The source of all of these injuries... ...is "Greek" and the Broncos medical staff.

    Welker Misdiagnosed

    Welker suffered the concussion, along with a neck injury, during last week's win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He took a hard hit late in the game, and after briefly leaving to be examined by training staff, it was determined that he was fine to head back on the field. Later, it was revealed that Welker was initially misdiagnosed, and that he played with a concussion Sunday.

      Survey: 78% of NFL players don't trust their team's medical staff

      Sports - <TIME itemprop="datePublished" datetime="2013-03-20 14:32" content="2013-03-20T14:32:30Z">March 20, 2013 10:32AM</TIME>
      The NFL Players Association did a survey of players and found most of them do not trust their team's medical staff. Team owners are questioning the validity of the survey.

      An NFLPA survey released the week of the Super Bowl found that 78% of respondents rated their trust in their team's medical staff the lowest on a 1-5 scale. An additional 15% said they trust medical staff only slightly. The NFLPA said the sample was representative of the 32 teams in the league.

        The Business of Getting Better—and the Best

        Injured players are relying on team doctors less and less in their quests to get back on the field. The complicated reasons for getting a second opinion can leave NFL surgeons in an awkward position


        The other reason more players are seeking treatment elsewhere is a growing distrust of team doctors. Agents, teammates and the NFL Players Association stimulate this lack of trust. Specifically, the union emphasizes to players 1) their collectively bargained right to seek an outside second opinion and/or surgery for an injury; 2) documented issues with a couple of team doctors, who are often seen as generalists rather than specialists, and 3) the team doctor’s perceived inherent loyalty to the team, rather than the player.

            This is an interesting thread..

            In a somewhat unrelated aside. When TD took that hit in Super Bowl 32. And he was kind of foggy. I remember the audio of him telling Shanahan that he couldn't basically see. And then Shannahan convinced him to go back in, saying obviously the Packers were going to focus on him (TD), setting up the fake, and John's little end around there.

            I wonder in today's NFL landscape, if TD would have been allowed to go back in.

            During the Saints-Eagles game the other day, the Saints basically took that DB's (Mincey?) helmet after he got concussed, and wouldn't give it back to him.

            And speaking of the Eagles, and injuries, what is Kelly doing in terms of injury prevention that has the league so curious?

              Yup, other than losing Maclin before the season they were ridiculously healthy this season. They had some DB's miss games here and there but for the most part everybody went the distance, including both their OL and DL. That's a huge advantage to have in today's NFL.

                Thanks Rev! I remember the migraines, did not know it was related to his chompers. As I recall, he was rockin' braces I think at one point.

                  How is it the training staff's fault Wolfe has some kind of illness? I am not big fan of Greek. He wasn't trained the way other sports trainers are today, and he isn't a doctor, but when you have a quote saying Wolfe didn't have a setback, but you bold setback, that's intentionally misleading.

                    It relates if this "illness" is from the preseason injury.

                      Football is a physical sport played by extremely fast, and extremely big men.

                      And we're surprised when their bodies get hurt and it impacts their ability to play?

                      I don't like it, but I don't think there is any way to keep the game and not have injuries.

                        This.

                        Not a fan of Greek. Feel like we've had way too many injuries over the last five years and very little assistance in preventative care or close to full health recovery on those injuries, unless the player is off for almost a year. However, both Wolfe and Moore are having some weird freak issues that probably don't have anything to do with their team doctors.

                        That being said, Greek has been around for a long time and apparently people love him at Dove Valley, but it seems to me new blood is always good to bring in new ideas and new healing practices. I think, just like Shanny, a guy like Greek can get stagnant in what they do and how they help the team.

                          I am not in agreement with this. He got hit in the neck. His seizure symptoms were coupled with weight loss and fever. That's not spine trauma thing. I think Wolfe has been ill.

                            Depends on what they did. From what I remember I don't think they did any epidural, or steroid injections but if they did you can develop arachnoiditis and other complications. The fact they are quiet about it would further the point they might have done something to affect him(I don't see that as the case though)? I'm not buying the food poisoning excuse back in September.
