Calico out 3 more weeks

Postby Damageincc » Tue Oct 05, 2004 7:34 pm

and possibly 8-10 more . I just cut him

Calico, who missed the first three games after tearing cartilage in his left knee in the preseason, will miss at least two to three weeks with torn cartilage in the same knee. Coach Jeff Fisher said Tuesday the Titans will send the second-year receiver for another doctor's opinion. Fisher said Calico could be out eight to 10 weeks or more if there's additional damage. Calico played last weekend in San Diego, but he was hurt again when he caught a pass in the flat, started to make a cut and went down in front of a couple defenders.

Fantasy Source spin: The MRI report reveals all. Plan on moving on without Calico, and be prepared to cut him if more damage is found.

The 'Cuna can help out...

Yahoo! Sports wrote:NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee receiver Tyrone Calico will miss at least two to three weeks with torn cartilage in his left knee -- another big loss for the Titans' receiving corps.

Calico missed the first three games after tearing cartilage in the same knee in the preseason. He played in Sunday's 38-17 loss at San Diego, but was hurt again when he tried to make a cut.

Coach Jeff Fisher had been optimistic that Calico might practice this week until results from an MRI late Monday night showed torn cartilage in the knee. Fisher said Tuesday the Titans will send the second-year receiver for another doctor's opinion -- and that Calico could be out eight to 10 weeks or more if there's additional damage.

Fisher was no more optimistic Thursday:
According to TitansRadio.com staffer Michael Wooden, Tyrone Calico's second opinion came back the same as his initial diagnosis.

"He has a medial meniscus tear," Fisher said. "In all likelihood, that's going to need to be repaired, not removed, which could put him out for an extended period of time."

When asked more specifically, Fisher said it could be as much as eight weeks before Calico could be ready to play again.

why is everyone so disappointed about this one ? Calico is not that great, and this leaves bennett to be more valuable. Not that I have bennett, but I would be pleased if I did. Silver linings gents...

THANKS CUNA....

CBrowns, i am disappointed because he looked good he looked really good in that game where he went down. Mcnair during the 1st stringers shift was going to him consistently testing the guy out. And i was impressed. Impressed enough to save him on my other team. I don't impress easily. Could have been a serious #2 rb. Not like your typical sorry ass non-scoring fantasy #2-#2 WR.

BTW its like BELL nobody has really seen him but all their hopes are up. Even though he hasnt really played a lick of actual plays that matter. Its all about possiblities. Calicos Upside in that offense was very good. Oh well hes injured now and off my team.

Titans: Calico will likely need season-ending surgery

by Fanball Staff - Fanball.com
Friday, October 8, 2004

News
A second opinion from Dr. James Andrews confirmed that Tyrone Calico has a torn medial meniscus and damage to the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. The Titans wide receiver will seek a third opinion, but the conclusion will likely be the same: season-ending surgery. Titans coach Jeff Fisher estimated that surgery would sideline Calico for about eight weeks, and Calico's agent, Mike Sullivan, told The Tennessean that surgery would "most likely" end Calico's 2004 campaign.

Views
Calico is considering getting another opinion, this one from Dr. Richard Steadman in Vail, Colorado—which, as Kobe Bryant found out, could lead to a whole new set of troubles if one isn't careful. The Titans signed former Cardinal Jason McAddley earlier in the week to replace Calico and recently-released Jake Schifino.
