Has anyone heard anything about his status.
Brandon LaFell got bruised, is expected to play and practice early this week. (From Miles' interview).
Thanks Tiga! :thumb:
I saw the Miles quote in a few papers, but I'm not buying it. The sideline report immediately after LaFell's limping started was that he had a strained achilles. I don't think any bruising's involved in that. And I don't think that it would heal in a day or two.
We'll see Saturday night.
I don't buy that either. He won't be playing or at least at 100%. If it is an achilles, I think it takes much longer to heal that.
He may start but not be 100% and may tweak it and have to leave. Our WR's, OL, and QB's have to step up big this week. I think the D takes care of business, but the O has to score some points.
LaFell continued playing after the injury. If it was serious, he wouldn't have been playing in the 2nd half. Very few players are completely healthy after 5 straight games.
He'll be ready to go.
