What's the timeline on Peters? I like him being in the lineup.

Wilfork blew his in Sept (end) and was cleared in mid June or so. He said he is back and feeling good, but he may still be limited in camp.

Going by that time frame (8months) it would put him coming back beginning of Sept or so. I think it is very likely he starts the season on PUP again. Hopefully he doesn't and is able to come back sooner.

We have seen a couple of guys come back quickly from achilles injuries recently (Suggs/Crabtree) but they weren't 300lbs,.

I'm thinking Newton struggles with his rehab. Seems like a good thread to brinf it up. He is still really limited cause his ankle surgery. If he struggles to run Carolina is screwed.

They said a few days ago, that he was still limited, but would be ready for camp, but how limited can you be, if you're going to be fine in less than a week? huh.png

Julio Jones will be "limited" for the start of training camp, but has avoided the active/PUP list.

We'd obviously prefer to see Jones at 100 percent from Day 1, but the fact that he's avoided the PUP list is a strong sign the Falcons aren't worried about his health. Jones' preseason reps figure to be strictly managed, but he'll be ready to rock as a top-five receiver for Week 1.

If Peters is physically unable to perform, shoot him up with a dose of Viagra and get him back in action!!

nice joke Gazoo!

in reality, it was reported a few years back that a lot of players take viagra to help with healing because it stimulates blood flow....besides the 'extra' help it gives cool.png

Julio hasnt had the benefit of OTAs or minicamp so he's a good deal behind the other players in "game situation" reps. It makes sense to bring him along slowly for the first half of camp so.

I was prepared to be much more concerned had he been PUPed. Given that he hasnt, it seems like the slow break in process. I'd bet he skips consecutive days for the first couple weeks and maybe skips the first preseason game.

I'm much more interested in the reports we'll get on him from now (if any). Looking for swelling or tightness in the foot or any compensatory areas.

Ledbetter.....

"the Falcons aren't worried about his health" but "Julio Jones will be "limited" for the start of training camp" and "Jones' preseason reps figure to be strictly managed."

Is it just me or do the above statements seem to disagree with each other?

I think it's a good statement. They're confident with his progression while wanting to take it extremely slow unlike what they did last year with Roddy and some others. I would rather he get to 100% than rush him back with all my heart. Even if that means sitting out for the Saints game and a few others to start the season. I am sure that opinion isn't popular but I think it's about what's more important? A game or two? , or the Season?

Like I said earlier, you've gotta remember that he doesnt have the recent reps that the rest of the roster has. So its probably best to break him in slowly to avoid any compensation injuries. You don't want him going out there and running every rep after not competing in that way for the last 8+ months. I think you take camp as an opportunity to get his legs used to the competition.
