My bad, I didn't know he missed time in college...not too huge on college sports. But my point is that there is little to worry about. There aren't a whole lot of "healthier" people out there.

Well, there you go. It was the exact same thing my dad had, but seems like he should be fine. Maybe he'll be devalued enough to be worth taking. Thank god for modern medicine, because when my dad got it there was like a 6 month rehab.

Not true... August 2001... I remember it well... In pre-season scrimmages Robert Morgan, FSU's #1 receiver, tears his left ACL and doctors say he is done for the season... Faced with having an essentially all underclassmen receiving corps, Bobby Bowden decides to move Anquan Boldin, who is in the midst of a battle with Chris Rix to see who will be the starting QB, to WR... There, Boldin will serve as the #1 receiver AND the #2 QB... AND again, in a scrimmage, FSU loses another WR (and #2 QB) when Anquan also tears his left ACL...

Boldin missed the entire season...

i have boldin as one of my top 10 wrs before the injury. I might be a little hesitant to take him as my first reciver now but after his 101 catch performance last year i would still take him. I dont think there is a huge risk in taking him. theres always a chance it could comeback to haunt you but sometimes you just gotta take a chance.

Doesn't sound like too much to worry about, but if I were a Boldin owner, I'd be a lot more worried about McCown and Fitz OR B.Johnson developing chemistry over the next two weeks of camp and in pre-season games, in Boldin's absence.

If McCown doesn't play favorites with Boldin, rest assured, Boldin's #'s (a quarter of which were garbage-time #'s) will drop off.

This is exactly how sophomore slumps begin...

12 team, H2H, hyper-performance, keeper (5)

Start 9: QB, 1/2RB, 2/3/4WR, 1/2TE, K, D/ST

Keepers: Deuce, Rudi, CJ, Plax, Foster

Is it just me, or has nearly everyone on your team suffered a major injury in like the past 2-3 years?
Edge-ACL
Taylor- cant remember, what did he have the year he only played 2 games?
Shipp- Major leg fracture
Pennington- broken wrist
David Boston- patella tendon
Boldin- luckily only minor torn cartilage
Thanks for the headsup on not drafting guys who are on your team ;-D

Maybe Sixxgunn should send a letter of warning out to the players that he drafts each year, just to let them know of impending danger.

From FootballGuys newsletter:

The news for Anquan Boldin keeps rolling in. What was good news this
afternoon now doesn't look nearly as promising.


Full article: http://www.azcardinals.com/press/pressd ... p?sid=2096

Clipped from the Chrissy Mauck article:

Boldin Surgery Reveals More Serious Injury

Pro Bowl receiver Anquan Boldin, who was carted off the field during
warm-ups of Tuesday's morning practice, had surgery on Wednesday to repair
his right knee.

"Anquan had an arthroscopic procedure earlier today to repair what his MRI
initially indicated was a slight meniscal tear," said head coach Dennis
Green. "Unfortunately, a more intricate examination during surgery
revealed a more significant tear than first thought and this required a
surgical procedure to repair. The good news is that the surgical procedure
went very well and Anquan will be back on the field as good as ever this
season. It's a bit premature to estimate a precise timetable right now
because it varies greatly from individual to individual but we are looking
at what is typically an 8-12 week injury."

"I think Anquan is one of the top receivers in the game," commented Green.
"He was a Pro Bowl player last year and a great competitor. Just not
having him out here yesterday and today has made a difference in our
football team."

The Cardinals are down to only one of their three starting receivers. With
Boldin and Bryant Johnson still recovering from his foot injury, only
first-round draft choice Larry Fitzgerald remains healthy. Still,
quarterback Josh McCown pointed out that he feels comfortable in his
remaining group of receivers.

"These guys are coming along, and Bryan Gilmore can step in there, Karl
Williams can step in there, Nate Poole," stated McCown. "We've got guys
who can step up and play. Jason McAddley has started for us before, so we
have guys who have played. It is not like in the past where we've been so
young in depth. We've got some veteran guys and they can step up and take
care of it. I trust these guys to make plays."

Poole says that it is important to all of the receivers to play up the
level that Boldin sets every day in practice.

"The receivers are going to go out and play hard because we want Anquan to
come back to the kind of atmosphere he expects," stated Poole. "We don't
want to be dropping balls or making mistakes, he'd be on us about that.
So, we have to make sure we execute this offense, make some catches and
get some wins so he can come back and help make a good situation even
better."

[[[[[[[[[[ OUR VIEW ]]]]]]]]]]


Wow. This was what we feared yesterday. This morning prior to surgery, the
word from Coach Green was that he was looking at 1-4 weeks. Now after the
surgery, they've discovered the injury to be more serious and the
timeframe for recovery is in the 8-12 week range.

What we must understand here is that these timeframes are not set in
stone. Green was very careful to say it was premature to estimate a
precise timetable. He didn't say Boldin was out 8-12 weeks. He said an
injury like this is typically an 8-12 week injury. There's a difference.
These things can change and every case is different.

But clearly, it's bad news for Boldin. We'll obviously stay all over this
one for you and bring you news as it warrants.
