In later news Friday afternoon, Larry English released a statement that his broken foot which he suffered in training camp last year needed a follow up surgery. What does this mean to Chargers fans?
NOTHING. Until this guy gets fully healthy and proves his first round draft status, I will think of him as nothing more than a glorified special teamer. Yes English does possess the skill set to be great and to play at the NFL level, but I believe I speak for majority of Chargers fans when I say “GET HEALTHY AND EARN YOUR KEEP”.
“They put another screw in because something was off,” English told the North County Times during an appearance at an Escondido, Calif., elementary school. “The doctors said it hadn’t healed right or the foot was re-broken. Either way, we had to get it right during the offseason. It feels a lot better now and (I’m) optimistic about my foot’s long-term health. Hopefully the second time’s the charm.”
Wait… Did you say the foot was either healed wrong or RE-BROKEN? I don’t like the sounds of this. Lingering injuries for a linebacker are a headache no ball club wants to deal with.
So what’s your take on Larry English? Can you blame his lack of progression solely on the broken bone? Or was he a 1st round “bust” draft pick?
