Mitch Morse in concussion protocol

Spencer Long and Feliciano can both play center.

 

Think Beane invested 11M per and hedged that bet with two guys on effectively 1 year deals?

So we're looking at POTENTIALLY for parts of this season having Bodine--Felicano-a rookie on the right side.  

 

Yup.  I'm trading for Trent Williams today.  Get on the phone with the worst run franchise in sports today.  

 

I understand Trent has missed games to.  Not to concussions.  His injuries might have more to do with playing on the worst field in the NFL.  

 

Trent--Dawkins--Center Roulette--Spain--Ford

 

That looks much more palatable to me. 

 

The Trent Williams train derailed before you posted that thread the other day.  It has nothing to do with their situation at center. 

 

They're not adding that salary for a veteran player with an injury history on a team that's invested high picks in Dawkins, Ford, and UFA dollars for Nsekhe.

Might not be a bad idea to have our scouts looking hard at stud centers at the college level this year. Never too early to get ready for the next draft, even though well be picking 32nd.

Still have to be better than Bodine’s 2018 form though, you would think. 

You’d think. I mean, it’s not a very high bar.

Correct.  Stop acting like Dawkins is an all pro. 

 

He's taking reps at Guard already.  Because he's not clearly showing he's a franchise LT.  Not that he's not good or can't be.   

 

You win in this league with good olines and QB play.  I'd do all I can to prepare for more problems with Morse and Centers just can't be replaced so shore up the line as best you can.  

 

IF Williams is 100%.  


Well first of all, Dawkins is NOT taking reps at guard. He has taken 100% of his reps at LT.

Second of all, trading for a left tackle does not do anything to help the problem of an injured center.

Time for "Next Man UP".  Hopefully this is the last concussion for Morse and he plays the entire season. But if I'm McDermott I'm telling Beane to keep a keen eye out for a starting calibre center.

 

I don’t think there’s even 32 starting caliber Centers in the League...

The Cowboys did alright when their C went down last year.

 

Because the rest of the line was good.

 

Anyone worried about chemistry or too many changes.....the whole dam line is new. 

 

Can't bolster center but you can improve the rest.

 

Some of you can say there is zero need to panic concern sure no panic.

 

Sorry another concussion for this guy already is absolutely reason to panic especially considering he was our most important UFA signing to a position that was hot garbage last year.  I'll chose to panic.  I'd much rather it be a shoulder or knee where you know---hey, 2-4 weeks he'll be good.  With these you just dont know.

I would say his 4th concussion is a recurring issue

Agreed. 

He looked good doing non contact drills yesterday so hopefully it isn't severe and doesn't linger but def a concern. We need him in those pre season gms getting those reps with Allen

Unless this is a reoccurring issue with him .....    I'm in the nothing to see here camp 

 

Its his 4th concussion, that makes it a reoccurring issue. That is not good news.

Bodine is case and point of this... he was a starter with Cincy and they let him walk, he came here and didn't win the job outright ... we made him the starter then replaced him the next year.

 

I think with Morse's history with concussions, this means Bodine gets to keep his spot on the roster.  I know he doesn't have the ability to swing to OG like Feliciano or Long, but he's a better center than both of those guys, and you need to be prepared for the eventuality that Morse misses time, whether it be snaps or games, I think it's obvious this dude isn't going to be in every snap...

Maybe I’ve missed it, but we don’t even yet know what happened and whether or not this is just the coaching staff’s way of treating him with kid gloves to be more safe than sorry over a big nothing burger? I’d be much more inclined to be in the same mindset as you if this happened during the reg season and we saw him take a crazy bad shot—not saying you’re wrong, just saying maybe we need to pump the brakes a bit until we know more?

You're thinking "Little Shop of Horrors".

The fact he's doing conditioning is a good sign.  Tells me its minor perhaps even precautionary.  

 

But still, already getting one to some degree.....not good.

Sorry of already posted 

 

PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills center Mitch Morse is in the concussion protocol, head coach Sean McDermott announced Wednesday.

Morse will miss Wednesday's practice.

Morse's concussion was diagnosed Tuesday but occurred during Saturday's practice -- the Bills' first in full pads. Although it occurred Saturday, Morse's symptoms were not immediately discernible.

Makes me appreciate the Spencer Long signing.  I know Feliciano was at C too but I think Long is a great backup.  His bad play at C last year was largely due to a hand injury .

No way Bodine>Long at C

He needs to retire......his brain can't take the NFL game anymore.  I am not happy, but I want him to lead a normal life.  I do wonder how much guaranteed money Bean gave him.

You don't want to rely on the backup at any position. 

But you can at certain positions without problems. Center isn't one of those.

A concussion already? Did he do it to himself wiping the sweat off his head?

Not good is an understaement. IMO he was the most important FA signing. 

And for good reason. He needs to stay healthy for the entire season. I would guess

with all the games he missed one season due too a concussion. He will sit the entire

pre-season with a bubblewrap helmet.
