I repeat, nothing ever goes our way! Attrition and injury, all day long!
You gotta be kidding
It sucks for him.
I honestly don't know how much of a loss it is though.
I'm sorry to read it Josh. I was looking forward to your contributions this year. You hang in there and get well.
This just in.... ****.
Hate to see this. Hope the "mights" and "possibles" end up being far less than they could be.
That said, don't think I'm going to be altering my W/L prediction.
Big 'un to run through the tackles. Hey, it worked for another guy last year.
Totally sucks b/c I am a big fan of Ford but I agree it doesn't likely impact the season as he was tied for 3rd on the depth chart. Not sure I get why they'd look at switching an LB to RB given that there are quite a few RB on the depth chart already.
Based on reports I am starting to get a bit more optimistic about our depth at RB (earlier I had my doubts about how many on the depth chart would qualify as BCS quality).
I forget if he ever had a RS year. If so, could he be eligible for a medical hardship?
Used it his first year at CU after transfer from Barton CC. Damn, I am hoping Josh, Jack Harris, and Parker Orms all get 6th years because we'll still be lacking experienced depth at their positions next year. Maybe not so much at RB but I've been restless to see what Josh would do given regular carries in a game.
For real?? The roster has him listed at 6'2" and 260 lbs. That's a load at RB.
I could be wrong, it happens frequently, but I think if you use your original redshirt year for something other than injury, you can't get it for an injury later on. If a kid uses it as a freshman to just bulk up, he can't apply for one later on unless it happens twice.
Believe you can only get a medical redshirt if an injury has caused you to miss the better part of two seasons.
Medical "hardship" occurs if you get injured during the first 3 or 4 games of the season. You can play in those games, then get hurt, and if you haven't redshirted already - you can use a medical hardship.
A redshirt occurs where a player does not play a single play in any game of a season.
That sucks. I talked to Mr. Ford in passing a few weeks ago, and he seemed really excited about the upcoming season. Seems like a genuinely nice young man, and I was hoping he'd have a breakout season.
Bummer - Karma for Josh.
Starting off my day with a bucket filled with bad news. One of the bright spots injurred. I wish him a speedy and complete recovery.
Did he do more than a high ankle sprain? Is surgery normal for this type of injury?
This is a total Bummer for Josh...
High ankle sprain
You are correct. Surgical repair would certainly indicate more than a sprain. The only reason to cut would be to repair tears or a build up of scar tissues from a repetitive problem.
Bummer. Sorry for Josh. I expected he would get some playing time this year even if it was in blowouts. We need all the Sr's we can get right now to show guys how to play through an entire season the right way.
Man O man O man!!!
Any word on his injury status?
I can't remember the exact numbers, but I think the official word is 4-6 weeks. Return is possible.
That is correct.
Poor Ford. Even if he makes it back, he'll probably be stuck behind Powell, TJ, Abron, and even Adkins at that point.
Speaking of Abron... how has he looked in camp for anyone who saw? Heard lots of good things about him coming out of HS.
And yep sucks for Josh, he seems like a competitor and a tough kid. Hopefully he heals fast and can make a bit of an impact. Glad to hear he won't be out all season though.
