 We don’t even know what the injury is yet 

 

He banged his ankle. Isn't "banged" specific enough? At least they did not say he suffered a lower body injury.

So was that a total of 4 practices.  Frustrating for the kid I'm sure but not NFL durable.  Again, we sort of knew this going into it.  Given McD's quote, I can only presume its not something that would enable him to play this week.

Dude played in 46 out of 48 games over his first three seasons (missing two games in 2016) and then missed 11 games last season. So it's not like the guy has been a walking injury for his entire career, he just had some bad mojo last season and it's carried over to this season. It happens.

I have seen enough.  Nothing stood out from his resume either.   My least favorite offseason signing.  Time to move on.  Duke to the active roster.

Shocker......although apparently it's his other ankle this time. If he played hockey he def be an ankle skater.

Bender could be a good nickname!

Turning out to be a useless signing. 

 

Signed him in March.  Drafted Knox and Sweeney in April.

 

Based on what was on our roster in March at TE?  Good signing.

...Sammy's foot issues were prolonged...and he seems to finally be ok.....hopefully Kroft can get beyond this as well.....

When do we cut bait? It makes you wonder what he said to convince the staff that he wasn’t an injury risk after a career of being injured. It almost makes you feel bad for Cincinnati. When Eifert wasn’t injured, he was and vice versa. Meanwhile Eifert is supposedly good to go this Sunday.

 

This team has a terrible track record in drafting and signing players coming off injuries (Shaq  Lawson, Trent Murphy, Morse, Kroft, EJ Gaines, Benjamin, etc.). I understand you can get “steals” in the draft and free agency this way but you have to consider dependability.

Both Knox and Sweeney have proven to be capable when on the field.  We haven't even had the chance to see Kroft yet, so I don't know what we're missing.

 

This is when the depth that Beane has acquired and McDermott has developed really pays off.  We can lose almost any starter on the team now and the next man up will be capable.  

Oddly for us, even the QB.  I wasn't a Barkley fan but the dude has played well in his spots.

I meant he's recovering from a broken ankle

Nucci just can't get it right.  He just wanted to jump on a guy and try to make him look stupid but then stupid was starring at him in the mirror.  Everybody knew he meant injury prone and not what you said in comparison to Rob Johnson.

Anyone find a lead pipe in Sweeney's locker?

 

He was heard muttering “Why me? Why me?” 

 

Sweeney just shrugged.  🙄

 

I like our new guys, and I don’t know what Kroft offers or what we’re missing. This is certainly bad news, but I like the way the FO avoided it being disastrous. 

 

Even Lee Smith looked like a WR on one play last week! We both said “who’s that?” Surprising development.

Two games in you say this? It IS unfortunate, but....wow. Just wow. 

 

Time will tell. I’m making no decisions at this point with so little info. I happy that I like our two young (and cheap) guys so much. Very encouraging there.
