I like Hamlin too but the staff have a lot of faith in Jaquan. He is their kind of football player. Hamlin is more physically talented, of that there is little doubt, but Jaquan is smart, knows where to be, does his one 11th and is a good communicator. And he has an NFL start under his belt from last year. That is why I think he has still been the first guy in through camp. 


Jaquan is a baller.  Anytime he has been given an opportunity he has made the most of it.   The depth at safety is high quality.

What does that mean, Dr. Y I Ohio?

 

A hard bump? Chipped bone? Stretched ligaments? Cartilage damage? ‘Funny bone’? 
Recovery time?

 

I think some others have posted some things about it.  Here's one link:  https://www.healthline.com/health/hyperextended-elbow

 

It all depends on the severity of the injury, the damage was done.   The injury occurs when the elbow is bent beyond its normal range of motion.   Treatment could be any or all of the following, depending on severity:

How is elbow hyperextension treated?

 

Immediately following the injury, place a cold compress on your elbow to help reduce pain and swelling. To make a cold compress, wrap some ice or an ice pack in a cloth. You can also take over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain relievers, such as aspirin, to help ease swelling and discomfort.

 

Depending on the severity of your injury, your doctor may also prescribe one or more of the following treatments.

 

Rest

 

In the first couple of days following your injury, avoid flexing and extending your elbow as much as possible. This can help it heal. You should also stay away from activities that could cause swelling, such as drinking alcohol or using heating pads on the injured area.

Depending on the severity of your injury, your doctor may advise you to start moving your elbow after a couple of days or recommend a longer period of rest.

 

Ice therapy

 

Wrap ice or an icepack in a cloth and place it on the injured area. Apply this cold compress for 10 to 20 minutes at a time. Do this every few hours for the first few days following your injury. Never apply the ice directly to your skin.

 

Elastic bandage

 

Wrapping an elastic bandage around your injured elbow can help prevent and relieve swelling. It can also help limit your movement, allowing your elbow to heal more easily. To apply an elastic bandage, wrap it around your elbow firmly enough to provide compression, but not so tightly that it causes pain or reduces feeling in your arm or hand.

 

Elbow brace

 

Wearing an elbow brace can also help immobilize your elbow. This can help it heal properly. Your doctor can let you know how long should wear the brace. In some cases, they may encourage you to wear a brace on an ongoing basis when you’re participating in certain activities.

 

Elevation

 

Elevating your elbow above your heart level can help prevent and relieve swelling. This is particularly helpful in the first couple of days after your injury. Consider elevating your elbow on some pillows when you’re lying down or a stack of cushions when you’re sitting. Wearing a sling can also help elevate your elbow.

 

Physical therapy

 

When you can move your elbow again without acute pain, your doctor may advise you to perform some gentle stretches or exercises to help heal it. For example, they might encourage you to perform one or more of the following exercises.

 

Extend your injured arm so it’s parallel to the ground, with your palm facing down. With your other hand, gently press down on the wrist of your injured arm. Resist moving your arm downward in response to this pressure. You should feel a gentle stretch in your forearm and elbow. You can do this stretch sitting down or standing up.

 

Extend your injured arm so it’s parallel to the ground, this time with your palm facing up. With your other hand, gently press the hand of your injured arm down and backward. You should feel a stretch in your elbow and forearm.

 

Bend your injured arm at the elbow, so your upper arm is down at your side and your forearm is extended forward, parallel to the ground. Your palm should face downward. With your other hand, gently press down on the top of the hand of your injured arm. Resist moving your hyperextended elbow down in response to this pressure. Hold for five seconds, then relax. Repeat 10 more times. Do this three times a day. Make sure to keep your elbow by your side the entire time.

 

Surgery

 

In some cases, elbow hyperextension can cause damage to your ligaments, tendons, bones, or other structures of your elbow. Your elbow joint be fractured or severely torn. In this case, you might require surgery to fix the injured area. Follow surgery, you will need to keep your arm immobilized for a few weeks. Then you may need to undergo physical therapy to help restore your elbow function.

Sounds like agent talk where they do not want any camps or preseason games "for they are not paid for it".


Has anyone seen Saul Goodman talking to him?

This is a lot better than a knee, ankle, back, or neck.  As NJ just pointed out, he’s been in this system for 5 years.  The DC hasn’t changed nor the system.

 

If the reporting of him being back for the Rams is promising.  Think happy thoughts and not worry about it.  We have depth at the Safety and Tre is still looking good as well with the drills he is doing and getting reported by Sal and others.

Really sucks for him and I’m glad he didn’t hold out. But this is just another reason not to pay him going forward. It sucks because dude is a baller and made himself into a pro bowler. But with Allen’s contract kicking in, there are going to tough decisions. And given McDermott’s work with d backs, I would bet money this is Jordan’s last year here.
