the saints signed retired mike mckenzie and Chris McAllister mid season to play corner their Super Bowl year. To expect to be fully healthy is not realistic. 
 

getting tre back will really help bolster the secondary 


Bills losing Hyde, in conjunction with their starting corner and two top end defensive tackles not playing, brought the line down from Bills -6 to Bills -4.5.   
 

That’s it.  I know Vegas isn’t the end all, be all, but that should give people an idea of how the betting world feels about us losing a Safety (as well as a corner and two DL) against the most explosive WR duo in the NFL.

Let’s face it, every year a top flight guy is going to miss a chunk of the year when you have 10 top flight guys. Last year it was Tre and now it’s Micah. Good luck to him in his recovery. The keys are still Josh and Diggs. 

As far as the impact on the Miami game. This will make them even more 1 dimensional because they won’t even try to run it now. Play pure pass and ignore play action.

First hope he fully recovers.  
The statement by the agent gives me a bad feeling he could be done in the NFL….like an Eric Wood situation where he wanted to maximize his NFL dollars.  

Unfortunately this is how I'm seeing it too.  May not play again

it’s only week 2 though. That’s the scary part. Tre happened last year on Thanksgiving. I am actually confident in JJ filling in well as the “next man up” especially in this DB-friendly scheme where every DB we have plugged in has had some degree of success so far BUT… There’s only so many injuries you can take until your top defense stops being a top defense and the advantage is lost.

While this is a nice summary of spinal stenosis, multiple sites including sports illustrated, ESPN, and CBS sports have reported the injury is a herniated disk. As such, the prognosis is much better than severe spinal stenosis with multiple levels involved. If he only needs a 1 level ACDF he could absolutely return to play, although at 32 he may decide it’s not worth the increased risk.

 

This is great information, as I have always feared Spinal Surgery.

I have a Cervical problem, where my neck cracks, like cracking your knuckles, at the point where (I think) the spine terminates into the skull, simply by moving my head up, and down. That is still, a secondary issue, for me.

In 1990, I was seeing a Neurosurgeon @ Buffalo General Hospital, who recommended a Fusion procedure, on my L4-L5 discs. I declined, and went through several weeks of aggressive PT, and I recovered my previous level of movement. (I couldn't even walk down a flight of stairs) The problem has now extended down to S1, which has left me in severe, and constant pain.

I cannot 'Train' as I used to, due to failing knees, and hips. Running (up to) 6 miles a day, kept me relatively pain free, for quite a few years, but unfortunately, that level of exercise, is no longer possible for me.

Sorry to interrupt the original topic, but your response, has me thinking, and I am going to revisit the possibility of surgery, to correct my condition. One thing for certain: the idea of plates, screws,and bone grafts, scares the crap out of me, and was the reason, that I declined the Fusion procedure, 32 years ago.

In any case, I hope that Mr. Hyde, can return to being The Bills 'Dr. Jeckyll' against opposing offenses, sooner rather than later... :)

Looking at the free agent market, the market for safeties is pretty bare.  Landon Collins is apparently still available.  He was never really very good in coverage, but he was particularly bad last year, recovering from an achilles tendon injury.  He carries quite a bit of weight for a safety.  Possibly a candidate for McDermott's famed "big safety."   Whomever Buffalo might sign, I think the best we can expect is a backup.  I think it's pretty obvious that Jaquan Johnson or Damar Hamlin will be starting the rest of the way.  Buffalo does have two DBs listed on the PS.  One of them, Jamarcus Ingram, is listed as a CB, but both guys are easily big enough to play safety, if Buffalo opts to fill the roster spot from within.

not to mention that the home team gets an automatic -3. So even with the spread going downward its still -7.5 in the betting world instead of -9

With a herniated cervical disc, it looks that we may be faced with another Eichel situation. A small portion of the with self-reabsorb after a period of rest. The other cases will require definitive surgery. However, I don’t see this becoming an artificial disc vs fusion debate. Football is too violent of a sport. So, how have players done after cervical spinal fusion? This is a little dated, but a good starting point.

Since this news dropped I have contemplated suicide, but…I mean Andor is starting on Disney+ and we are ordering chicken wings tonight so…I got some stuff going my way.

 

 


Wait ‘til you see how boring Andor is, you’ll be back to bathing with the toaster…

Whoa. Im way late to the thread.

All I can say is Heal up Micah and best wishes.  This news sucks its true.

 

The way the team overcomes setbacks will determine its fate this season.

 

I think the character of this team is such that whomever is asked to step  up will do so  and as they say, The show must go on. BRING IT ON

 

SQUISH THE FISH~!~!~!!!!!

First, I hope Hyde recovers.

 

The S market is bare. Make a trade, or scour the PS for a guy like McCloud at the S position.

 

Why can't we have nice things?

 

Hopefully Dane Jackson and Tre White are ready sooner than later, or this will be a real challenge.

 

TIme for Neal/ Johnson or Hamlin to step up.

 

This was a really deep S draft and we passed on all of them...... I was not happy then with 2 S over 30, less happy now.

Have a good long talk with the neurosurgeon (spine). You made the right call on deferring the lumbar fusion. Those are a complete crap shoot on whether you’ll get relief or not. Cervical fusions have a much higher success rate in terms of symptomatic relief but depends on the pathology involved.

Thanks for that. That gives me confidence, moving forward. I am at a crossroads, where I have to do something.

Agreed. ultimately it’s the type of change that might swing a TD every couple games. No safety is a huge swing. The folks acting like we need to score 2 extra touchdowns a game are being dramatic. Especially when tre returns.
