Hope he can get back to playing soon.  The only reason I did not eval him in the offseason was the heart stuff.   Felt stupid that I didn't as it seemed like it was a non-issue at Washington.  Hate to hear it's still an issue.  Get well big fella.  I didn't expect Kaleb to start but I'm pretty sure Ty Sambarillo is no the answer for the team.

Falcons may need to slide Lindstrom out to RT, so we can get our best five O linemen onto the field.

Doctors were sure so let’s blame the non Doctors anyway?

Logical

btw, this is yet to be shown to stop him from football. He is scheduled to return.

Anyone with a brain would slow down and think if you're drafting a guy with a heart issue in a contact sport.

The falcons knew what McGary's medical history was when the drafted him. They obviously didn't think it was life or career threatening.  They may be wrong, going to assume they were correct until proven otherwise.

Really not.a.good idea to work in this heat with heart arryth mias. They can get bad when your sodium and potassium levels,which are readily secreted in sweat, getout of balance.

If he can't physically handle the load of an NFL schedule we certainly should not have drafted him

Did we move back in the draft to get a player that had medical procedures on his heart twice previously or did the F.O. not know? So we are back to hoping Ty Sambrailo can handle the position.

Depends on what he needs the ablation for...if it is recurrent SVT, then he can likely return to activity fairly shortly.

If it’s Atrial flutter or Atrial fibrillation, those are a little bit more of a pain in the butt as time goes on.

if it’s for a wpw tract, then usually they can fix the problem ok.

i doubt its for a VSD or PFO(but sure it could be), but you can perform most activities (even football) with them
