Give him more than 4 games where he hasn't missed any time yet. Geez...

Croyle has missed over a half a season worth of injuries.

If Albert comes back this year and gets hurt and then next year gets hurt then he is probably injury prone

I was willing to give Croyle the benefit of the doubt until he got hurt in Week 1.

You're wrong because your a fuggin idiot.

First of all, we all know that a stubbed toe keeps you out of Preseason.

Second of all, a freak play happens 4 games into the season.

Third of all, it's his FIRST YEAR.

All of that added together means that he is NOT injury prone. He needs at least more time and more injuries for you to have a case.

I seen this movie once, i think it had Bruce Willis. But he dislocated his shoulder then he popped it in place by himself.

But he still continued on to kick ass through the rest of the movie. So i don't think a dislocated elbow should be to bad.

A dislocated elbow could be a "not really a big deal right up through a very big deal.

Sims dislocated an elbow that ended up being broken.


I had an elbow dislocated sparring several years ago....It took months to get the strength back. There could be ligament damage, tendonitis could develop, fractures......or it could be a pop it back in, treat it for a few weeks and he'll be ok.

I know this much.....It'll hurt and even after he thinks its better, it'll hurt when certain things happen...for a long time.


Anyone suggesting Albert is injury prone like Croyle should stretch their hamstrings and maybe consider a butt plug before stuffing their head into their ass so far.

I'm fairly positive he'll be out for the year...not because I have any inside information or because I read any reports...I just know how *****ed you are when you dislocate an elbow...and it sucks but at least it's not a knee. He was in ridiculous pain.

I talked to the missus about it - she specializes in treating hand and arm injuries. She said that the elbow is very hard to dislocate and there are plenty of chances for other problems including nerve damage when that happens. Hopefully he just hyper-extended it and didn't actually dislocate it.

It didn't look terribly contorted or going off in a crazy direction like some dislocations.

But they were being VERY ginger with it when they carted him off.

Not to question you; but in comparison to what you have experienced Albert has alot more going for him in getting better sooner. The best medical care possible at no cost to him. Plus he is more likely a hell of alot stronger than you and thus generally able to recover quicker.

Iowanian
09-28-2008, 09:22 PM
This is true.

My first hyperextended elbow was wrestling, and I taped it up, iced it a lot. Ended up in PT because of some calcium deposit in the joint afterwards that wouldn't let me straighten the elbow. Small time.

You're right...I wasn't in as good of shape as he would be (but was in good shape) and didn't have access to the PT and treatment that he will.

That was his main game until his Jr. yr in high school when someone suggested he tryout for football. He probably didn't weigh 315 at the time. I never have doubted his athleticism. Matter of fact I think he has the potential to be very good. Just saying that he only has 6 yrs of football experience when most football players start when they are 8-9 yrs old and are mentally tougher because they know what to expect and how to work through bumps and bruises of the game. Jury is still out, however as I said before getting a cart for an elbow injury is not a good sign. Hopefully we will toughen up.:thumb:

I suppose if getting your arm rolled into makes you injury prone..then Albert is.

And Tom Brady is injury prone because Pollard *****ed his knee up.

I'm seriously sweating Albert being out for a while. This line needs some sort of continuity, and it seems like we were establishing that today(albeit against a trash defense). Albert being out disrupts chemistry more than anything but I have faith in Taylor as a back-up LT. I hope he's back soon.

I see your point, but were talking professional football here right? What are the two top things all the rookies talk about that is the biggest difference that is as extreme as night and day "speed of the game" and "harder contact play". He is talented enough athletically to get away with it in college. But I think he is facing guys that are just as athletic,probably stronger and HIT a helluva lot harder than the college play he used to experiencing.

Don't get me wrong, I am an Albert fan. Quite frankly, I think he as done quite well athletically against most of his competition. But it is the 'mental toughness' I worry about after seeing a cart ride for an elbow injury. I don't worry about his athleticism or strength it is adjusting to a nastier mentality on the O-line that Roaf had that I worry about. Will he get mentally tough as time goes on or will he be hurt all the time? It remains to be seen.

Kind of hard to judge his toughness when nobody but him has any idea on earth how much pain he was in.

i've torn the ligaments hyperextended my elbow and "bruised" the nerve in it and was back up and skating in two weeks. If his elbow isn't broken and he misses more then three weeks he's a giant vagina.

You're a figure skater?

610 radio this am said he could be back as early as this week but it will probably be after the bye.

If that's truth, that's excellent news.

So can we get his elbow located?

We can rebuild it. We have the technology.

yea .... and Larry Johnson's foot was day-to-day


the chiefs are some lying fuggers

they don't tell the truth until someone MAKES them tell the truth.

That is the way the league works. There are alot of teams that do that crap.

This seems odd to see a guy get carted off looking like he was dying in pain be questionable the next week...

Heck, I thought he was done for the year the way he acted, so if he comes back any time in the next couple of weeks it would be awesome.

Well I thought he did something to a knee or achillies and the elbow was secondary at first, you usually don't see guys just fall like that without some sort of lower body injury.

You ever hit your funny bone Mecca?

The ulner nerve in the elbow is just one that could have been bruised, hit, stretched, dinged....when that elbow hyper-extended.

Well yea hitting your elbow sucks, but honestly I think that may be the first time I've ever seen a guy fall with no contact without some sort of lower body injury.

I thought it looked like the Donkey rolled into the back of his leg and that was what tripped him.

Falling wasn't what hurt him...It was the fat man that smelled like a wet horse that rolled onto the arm, bending it the wrong way......

There were several comments during the game about Donkey players falling down on the turf.

Albert may have been lucky because I think he got his arm landed on by a safety instead of a lineman.

That is why I questioned if this guy was a potential "puffball" earlier in this thread. :shrug: Again I am an Albert fan and feel he has done pretty well so far considering, but his football physical toughness is now going to be questioned in the future IMO. Hell, the way it looked to me I thought it was his hip by the way he was walking and grabbing that area, only to find out it was his elbow.:hmmm:

I broke my elbow a few years ago in a biking accident (Fell off my mountain bike). Anyway, elbows are not put together that well and when they experience trauma, it takes awhile for them to fully heal. It took me more than a year (15 months) to fully recover and I still lost 5% of my range of motion. I feel for the guy - I'm just glad he dislocated it rather than broke it. Had he done that, he'd be done for the year.

I thought the same thing initially and didn't believe the early reports that it was his elbow. Hope he makes it back soon so Mr. Herb can move over to RT where he's sorely needed. He did very well filling in for Mr. Albert.

BSpn reports he'll be working out at the skating rink this week to get back into football shape, and toughen up a bit.

Albert was hurt but they prolonged the injury time out
because the brace to keep Huard from going fetal had come lose
and the duct tape was no where to be found

I still haven't seen anything definitive on Albert. Whats up is this another of those mysterious injuries that could linger through out the year like LJ's last year?

If he can make it back after the bye then that is great news!! If LJ can keep his game up, move Taylor over to RT, and with Albert back and Brodie is back in; we can hopefully see not just a rushing attack but hopefully some protection so Croyle can get the ball downfield to Bowe or Gonzalez.

Tape a magnet to it, slap on a brace, tape him up and toss him back in.

Get the **** in and play!
