Carolina RBs

Postby Guttpuppy » Mon May 12, 2003 2:40 am

While the initial prognosis on Panthers RB DeShaun Foster's microfracture knee surgery looked career-threatening, good news is now coming out of Carolina that he can make a return. Foster has been keeping clippings of everything that has been said about him and has used his naysayers as motivation. His knee has no pain or swelling, which was the problem last year after having arthoscopic surgery. He’s running at three-quarters speed on a treadmill now, wearing a harness to avoid placing his full weight on the knee.

Does Foster really stand a chance this year?

According to team sources, Stephen Davis will be the man in Carolina, seeing a lion’s share of the carries early on. Still, Foster is on track to play this season, and the Panthers expect him to see a lot of action. In more than one scout’s opinion, Foster was the most talented back to come out of the 2002 draft class, and he lasted until the second round for two reasons — not being able to hold on to the rock and character concerns. The team has been overly impressed with his upbeat attitude and diligent work ethic in rehabilitation, and as long as he can secure the ball, which has yet to be a problem since he arrived in Carolina, the team still has high hopes for him to be their running back of the future.

And how many games has he played in, since he arrived in Carolina? My guess is, if you don't play any games, it isn't a problem to 'secure the ball'!!!

I really think he could have been a major player, but losing out for a whole season, and probably most of his second season will really diminish his career value.

Its all Davis this year, unless he injures himself again.

The OC in Carolina already said he plans on getting Davis 300+ carries this year so even if Foster does come back he may only see spot duty unless Davis goes down. Which I cant really see happening this year just because the more he plays the better he gets!!

I know I'd like to see Davis do something special this year,,,whenever a player gets treated the way Davis has been it kinda makes for a feel good story.

Davis is going to have a great year. Smith was doing quite well the first of last season and Davis is a lot better than Smith. They also have the new stud OL which should only make Davis' value climb.
