    Default Brandon Albert - Yea or Nay???

    Well we have had in depth conversations (with a few insults and rants thrown in for good flavor) about Albert. The first week of Training camp is about over. What say you???


    Myself, I'm hopeful. From all reports Albert is showing a lot more foot speed than expected. There will obviously be some learning curve ahead, but hopefully he will do ok.

    I think he hurt an ankle in OTa's. Hurt it again in the scrimmage against Minnesota and now the elbow.

    He said he has never been hurt before and this is the first time he has ever sat out due to injury.

    I'd say the ankle really counts as one injury that probably never completely healed...

    As for the elbow, I'd call it a fluke...

    If the guy had a history of problems in college then that'd be another story. If he has more injuries this year and next then...

    I agree that we need to let him have a chance and he hasnt proven yet he is injury prone. Although it is disturbing.

    History of injury problems? You mean Croyle?
