crap, I hope its internet rumoring and not the truth. Anyone friends with miller on facebook?
Miller's destiny is not to be one of the hall of famer buffs...dude is injury prone...I hope he gets well and contribute in the future
Anyone in the know care to chime in on this one? Would be the story of Spring if true. Would be utterly craptastic if true.
I don't really consider having a broken leg and a broken arm to be injury prone.
If true it is a big blow to Ryan and the team but some bright side. One is that it is a forearm, not a leg issue so the long term effect on his career (and life) is much smaller. Secondly he should be back easily in time for fall practice, he is a very intelligent guy so the loss from the mental aspect of things he can overcome and make up. The loss is in terms of reps with the rest of the O-line and the coordination with the offense as a whole
I'll take the optimistic point of view. This will allow Richter and MTM along with Behrens, Adtkins and the other guys working at G to get more reps this spring. Also allows Big #73 to be totally healthy going into fall camp.
How does a guy get hurt that bad on the first day of spring drills. I was at practice, they had helmets and shorts on. Worst hit I saw all day was Thorton running over a DB.
Injuries happen. That's Football.
Get well soon, Ryan. The Millers are good people.
and so it begins.......get well ryan.
Medical redshirt with a real coaching staff is a win win proposition.
can he get another medical redshirt?
Miller's not out for the season or anything. He'll be back working out this summer and ready to go for Fall camp.
I wish him the best that the procedure works this time. He's one of the two linemen I wasn't worried about at all (Solder is the other). If he comes back strong, the silver lining in this is that the guys competing for the LG spot are going to get more reps. They need them desperately. We need to find a good starter at LG and a viable backup at guard out of spring ball.
Not real worried about this injury (that would change if he still has complications into the summer). Much more concerned that no one will step up and grab the LG and C jobs. We need a couple guys to really take a stranglehold on those jobs so we can start to build some chemistry when fall camp starts.
didn't Bobby Purify get hurt on the first day of fall camp as a freshman? or was it Clyde Surrell....think it was Bobby. stepped on a sprinkler head or something.
Timescall with yet another excellent article confirms this and mentions myriad staff changes...
