    Ted can find someone. He found Howard Green in late Oct.

    Morgan Burnett played on his knee last season in the Lions game before they pulled him out and ended his season... Just because he walked off without assistance doesn't mean anything. By all accounts, it sounds like he tore something, but I'm hoping like all hell that he didn't...

    MM said that he saw him go down and that it looked scary. Said in his presser "We were hoping for big things from Mike this season"... Doesn't sound too positive.

    It's too early for this ****... Especially after last season. You've got to be kidding me.

    The fact it is already a problem with him scares me. If it isn't that bad how long will it be until it is serious?

    Put it this way... They called Al Harris' injury a sprain at first too. And his knee was so torn to shreds that the doctor putting it back together said that it was the worst he'd ever seen.

    They always call it a sprain until the MRI comes back.

    Keep your fingers crossed

    They didn't need him last season and they went five games without Cullen Jenkins.

    I've been putting more faith in C.J. Wilson. Until Mike Neal can stay healthy then I expect very little from him. Let some young guys step up.

    Let's hope the scan comes back negative, and Neal has another chance to prove he can stay on the field.

    I think the OP had it right in the title. Mike Neal is looking to be the next Harrel. Big talk every preseason and we need him in a big way but goes down with a significant injury. Too bad for him and too bad for us. Hopefully there is someone out there we can bring in. Im not a huge Wynn fan and im not sure who else there could be behind him.

    At this point, McCarthy using the word sprain just means its ligaments or tendons. Could be anything from a mild sprain to torn up.

    The fact this was a non-contact injury is worrisome.

    So did Ryan Grant last year.

    Neal seems brittle... like he's a juicer who breaks down fragile, although on the outside he appears strong like bull.
    I just wish they would have kept Cullen until Neal showed he could actually last a year.
    Damn.

    This was accurate by Vandermause:
    Again, fans were right about Harrell right from the start. But obviously we must defer to TT because he brought us this team.

    Greg Bedard and I joked for 2 years that every single Sunday night postgame presser, you had McCarthy calling everything a "sprain".

    Knee sprain.
    Ankle sprain.
    Arm sprain.
    Shoulder sprain.
    Head sprain.

    You and I have a different memory then.

    I remember Grant jumping around on one leg. I dont considered that walking.

    Yeah, Grant most definitely did not walk off under his own power... Burnett did, Grant was hobbling all over the place.

    Neal tweets that he's "A-OK" about an hour ago, apparently College asked him if he was okay... Hopefully this isn't a "Finley" from last year when he said he was fine, and then was placed on the IR...
