    Walker to have knee surgery, expected to miss 'a few weeks'

    Associated Press

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos wide receiver Javon Walker needs another surgery on his right knee, the same knee he injured in the 2005 opener for Green Bay that caused him to miss the entire season.
    Walker will have an operation Friday in Houston and will be out "for a few weeks," coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday.

    "Javon's not feeling very good," Shanahan said.
    Shanahan didn't have a precise timetable for Walker's return and said he wasn't sure what the procedure entailed.
    "Doctors don't think it's very serious, but serious enough to go in there and clean it out because he's been off of it for a few weeks and it hasn't gotten much better," Shanahan said.
    Walker underwent surgery two years ago to repair a torn ACL and then needed a follow-up operation around the time he joined the Broncos in a draft day trade in 2006.
    Walker missed the Broncos' last two games because of swelling in his surgically repaired right knee but returned to practice this week following the team's bye.
    On Wednesday, Walker said he was feeling better and hoped to play Sunday night against Pittsburgh.
    "I really don't notice it until everything is done and it's time to calm down," Walker said of the pain. "When I'm out there in the midst of playing, I don't even notice it."
    Walker, however, wasn't at the team's complex on Thursday. After the day's workouts, Shanahan said Walker needed another operation.
    Walker had a great training camp and said he was so confident in his recovery that he predicted he could top 1,600 yards receiving this season.
    He got off to a great start, catching 17 passes for 220 yards in the first two games before making just two receptions for 10 yards against Jacksonville in Week 3. He sat out the next two games.
    "He gave it a go, but you could tell something wasn't right," wide receiver Brandon Stokley said. "We're going to miss him. So hopefully he'll get back and be ready for the stretch run."

    The loss of Walker puts even more pressure on a Broncos offense that sputtered in a 41-3 loss to San Diego two weeks ago and lost center Tom Nalen for the season with a torn biceps.
    Running back Travis Henry could be facing a year's suspension. He is fighting the league over a drug test result, and the Broncos could find themselves turning to undrafted rookie Selvin Young any day.
    Also on Thursday, tight end Stephen Alexander was placed on injured reserve with a calf injury that's been slow to heal.

    He is the most worthless piece of **** to ever coach an NFL team. Anyone who coaches the cut-blocks, the way he does, and yet refuses to allow those same manuevers to be used during practice, against his players is a total dirtbag.

    Those cutblocks have ended many players seasons and even some careers. They once ended the career of a defensive lineman who had been on their own roster, the previous season.

    And still Shanahan refuses to accept any responsibility for it. Eventhough they also tend to use the "high-low" combination on opponents who prove themselves to be too much for their offensive linemen to handle.

    The "high-low" combination is when one offensive lineman attempts to block an oponent, face to face, while a teammate throws his body weight at the guys engaged knee.

    The only use that that combination has, is to deliberately injure someone.

    While they have done it alot less lately, than when they were making their Super Bowl runs, I still hold Shanahn responsible for the careers that his team has damaged, and ended.

    Agreed, Shanahan is a dirtbag!
