Week 1 Notable Injuries

Why does this not surprise me? (fourth paragraph of article)

Jaguars defensive end Reggie Hayward will miss the season with a torn Achilles' tendon.

Pat Kerney left the game with a right triceps strain.

Lito Sheppard injured his ankle in the first quarter of a win at Houston and did not return.

Robaire Smith hurt his hamstring when he jumped offside in the first quarter against the Jets. Funny! Pay attention girl! Jets left guard Pete Kendall also hurt his hamstring.

Jimmy Kennedy broke his right hand in the first quarter of a victory against Denver and played wearing a cast. Now that’s a man.

Sadly, I sprained my knee Sunday against the Cards. Also, teammate baby ant Jonas Jennings, injured his right ankle in the final seconds of the first half.

Finally, you know I have to comment on Trent Green, everybody. I attempted to watch both early games that were broadcasted in my areas Sunday which were Texans/Eagles and Chiefs/Bengals. Since I do not have a ridiculously large plasma screen with picture in picture, watching multiple games at the Silva house consists of switching the channel back and forth between action. We just happened to switch back to the Chiefs game right before the play where Richard Gray rolled out of the pocket and scrambled for the first down. In the words of grandma Frances, “and then disaster struck.” Usually when someone gets blown up or gets hurt in the Silva household you will hear several comments along the lines of …”Funny!” or “what a wussy!” “you’re fine girl” (see Robaire Smith) but right when I saw the Trent Green hit, I knew it was vicious. No penalty was called on the play, and after watching it a couple of times it, although ridiculously hard, it looked clean. Herm Edwards said it looked like a helmet-to-helmet shot from his vantage point a few yards away, but then said he had been advised not to comment on the officials' call. But defensive end Tamba Hali said referee Larry Nemmers told him no penalty was called because Gathers was airborne and unable to stop himself. "This league is supposed to protect the quarterback," said Hali, shaking his head. "The comment from the ref was he was in the air. You can't have helmet-to-helmet because you can't control yourself in the air. But at least a call should have been made." I wonder if Hali would have felt the same way if he had knocked out Carson Palmer? Anyway, get well soon Trent Green.

what's with big daddy Morgansen always getting his bell rung? I know he don't hit that hard. I don't think he wears a real helmet. his is like a kids one, like the old Cooper one we have.
