Right, that's what I'm saying. OK as in alive, can walk. Or OK as in can play football again soon.

I would love for it to be the latter, but very thankful it’s the former at minimum.

 

If not, next man up.  Benford and Elam proved they are at least servicable tonight.

at minimum, he's feeling intense pain and quite possibly some numbness.  Full recovery would be awesome.  playing soon is doubtful imo.

I wouldn't risk it and McDermott probably won't either. One of the biggest strengths of this team is our depth and tonight it got tested and passed with flying colors. Let Jackson take all the time he needs, this D line will feast on the phins O line if Oliver and Settle come back. I have faith in our CBs

It might be one of those things where docs tell him look you got lucky but we strongly advise against you taking more hits.

 

Hopefully its not like that but man it looked bad.

As bad as it did look, and it did, to get news like this speaks volumes of Jackson's toughness. I wasn't much in to the game until they said he had movement in his extremities

I agree its tough to "go back to watching the game" after you think someone got injured so bad like that because it makes hoo rah rahing over football feel bad.

We all love the game and should know they r modern day gladiators.  The players know, at least most do.  They get to decide. Knew a salesman with a sb ring whose kid was pretty good in college.  He actually hoped his kid didn't make an NFL team (he didn't) But hate to see that kind of injury ever, in any sport.

Everybody who thinks he’s going to retire… Clearly don’t have the mindset of a football player 

 

They all know the risks

 

Guaranteed when he’s healthy he’ll be back… Especially with Poyer saying he’s OK and he’s moving extremities 

 

It’s a violent Sport

Also, I think they trainers and medical staff's are much more cautious these days.

Of course they are … and it’s not to take what happened to Dane lightly …

 

but if it’s not significantly bad… he’s a football player … he’ll be back 

I'm not taking it lightly at all, I very much hate any injuries. I'm just hoping Poyers' tweet is portraying the best possible outcome.
