It may be too early to call, since we don't know Troy's injury- but we know he's out for the game. Hurry up and trade Larry, people. ;)

Wow. If Fitz gets hurt or does miserable, I'm going to start believing in Vampires and Witches, too because this curse it just unbelievably consistant. Never been wrong.

Following Season: Traded to Jets, hurt arm.
Image
Following Season: Hurt quadricep. Marked the beginning of the mental meltdown.
Image
Following Season: Broke left foot.
Image
Following Season: Hernia. Surgery halfway through season.
Image
Following Season: Torn hamstring.
Image
Following Season: Fractured right fibula.
Image
Following Season: Tormented by injured ankle all season.
Image
Following Season: Hurt knee, missed 5 games.
Image
Following Season: Various injuries, lowest rushing total of his career.
Image
Following Season: Barry Sanders was supposed to be on the cover. He retires and EA Sports puts Madden on the cover instead. His finger wagging pose looks ominously like an evil, overweight wizard putting a curse on every player to follow.

That injury looked pretty nasty. In medical school we would have called that the unhappy triad (acl, mcl, and medial meniscus tear). He'll be lucky if it's just a bad sprain.

I'm not gonna say I drafted Breaston because of the curse... but it may or may not have been a small factor in the decision. O:-)
