    he had microfracture surgery... a 1 year deal wouldn't hurt us. We can draft a more long term RT next year or sign one.

    Although I have heard it is really hard to come back from microfracture surgery. Some have done it and others end up retiring. Here is the wikipedia page on it, it starts out sounding good then talks below about how it doesn't always work.

    It's a great addition.

    Runyan was only replaced because he was questionable for the season and Andy Reid wanted to have the line shored up before TC.

    Massive upgrade over anything we have if he is healthy. Despite declining slightly over the last two years he is still a solid RT.

    Microfracture and the typical draining of fluids has already happened. Knee replacement when he retires. Those are his words, not mine.

    Yeah, it said "knee surgery" in the article. Then, I went and read some articles about him and saw the microfracture explanation. I hope he is the exception.....i see he ranks up there in the top dirtiest players. Thats fine by me. After all this losing, im ready to take the gloves off, for a change;)

    Anyone is better than Mcintosh and Richardson, so to have Ndukwe, O'Callaghan, and possibly Runyan is by far more than I dreamed when training camp started. Its not a permanent fix, but way better than going with the previous two clowns we had
