Stallworth's Hammy.

Postby Guttpuppy » Mon May 26, 2003 6:12 pm

Second-year wide receiver DontT Stallworth has been working with local fitness and nutrition expert Mackie Shilstone during the offseason to try and strengthen his hamstrings.

Stallworth had an impressive rookie season in 2002 with 42 receptions for 594 yards and eight touchdowns, but he missed several weeks of training camp and 3 1/2 regular-season games because of two hamstring injuries.

The second hamstring problem occurred when Stallworth was being "stretched out" by one of the trainers before the start of the second half of a Sept. 29 game with the Lions.

The speedy wide receiver also had hamstring problems while playing for the University of Tennessee. Stallworth had made plans to visit with a specialist recommended by Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce, but the SARS scare in Toronto, where the specialist practices, put that on hold.

"Isaac's got the same thing I've got," said Stallworth. "But everything's going good (in the off-season)."

How many games did Isaac miss in his first few seasons with this problem???? hopefully the same doesn't happen to this kid cuz he is truly exciting to watch.

I'm very high on Stallworth...I hope he can stay healthly though.
He isn't very consistent...but I just love touchdowns. This guy takes TD's away from Joe Horn, which makes me not like Horn the same way as other people.

from what I can remember...that hammy really took a chunk out of Bruce's prime 4 seasons in a row

I guess when the first genetically engineered WR is made in a lab you know which gene they'll start with

Hamstring injuries suck (ex. Griffey Jr.) . Stallworth has blazing speed, and as Guru pointed out, finds the endzone. I remember last year as a rookie had a nice streak of games with at least a touchdown. I hope to see him get his hammy right, but those kind of injuries can be very frustrating for players and makes him a risk fantasy-wise.

Stallworth is a dangerous weapon and will be even more dangerous if his trainer can get him to stay on the field all season.

That long lean body type seems to always be the killer Bruce, Stallworth are both built the same any it is always a problem guys like that have to deal with. Lelie is built the same and he has hamstring problems too.
