Sorry guys but I love Sing, its obviously hurting the team. Too many starters and KEY role players are nicked up and we need all the help we can get. The Niners playoff chances really hinge on the first 5 weeks of the season. This team needs to start well and we're already down a key role player and yesterday Morgan had a "close call". I believe in tough football players but let's not miss the forrest for the trees here. I know we have good WR depth but that can get real thin real fast. Camp needs to chill a little. Just a little.
He landed on his own shoulder trying to make a diving catch genius. Do you want them to not try to catch the ball with there hands so they dont risk broken fingers too?
No but I'd like for you to try to use what little brain you have before making a comment.
Dumb must be contagious around here or something. It's perfectly possible to go through camp and not have a RASH of injuries given the level of physicality that's occurring at camp.
RIF = Reading is Fundamental
How many articles have I read that "Niner camp is far more contact oriented than other camps I've seen...." - Mike Sando, ESPN.
Again, I'm not saying football isn't a contact sport, but there just maybe, might have been something to the Walsh Philosophy of keeping your players a little more fresh.
If this was THE ONLY player injured, sure you'd have a point - but it's not - so you don't.
Lets review now shall we?
Pro Bowl linebacker Patrick Willis sprained an ankle on the first day of practice and has not returned.
It might be a while before left guard David Baas (needed for running game) or running back Michael Robinson are ready to go again.
Outside linebacker Parys Haralson (will rely on him for effective pass-rush) has a hip flexor injury. He returned Wednesday for individual drills but not team work. Right guard Chilo Rachal was held out of practice after being hit with the first migraine of his life at the end of Tuesday afternoon's session.
Fullback Moran Norris (needed for running game) practiced one day, Monday, before straining his hamstring. Cornerback Tarell Brown has missed time with a toe injury.
