Everything I've read leads me to believe it's cramps ... all three limped to the sideline ... took a cart to the locker room (apparently it's a long walk to get there from practice field) and then later all three walked back out to the sidelines on their own ... my guess is they went in for IVs ... that's the bad thing about The Greenbrier ... you can get more done because it's not as hot and humid ... but then their bodies aren't acclimated when they practice in a place like Houston (or New Orleans for that matter)

Can the defense just watch game film from now on and skip practice. This bad news is killing me

Injured is inaccurate as we know nothing yet. Could easily just be cramps.

Hopefully its heat related.

For the last 3 years this has happened we've come from the Greenbrier and traveled to Houston (with the exception of 1 year i think) leaving Cool Crisp Mountain temperatures and then practicing in the Southern Humidity.

No, they didn't walk back to the field on their own.

They walked/limped to the sidelines on their own, then got carted to the locker room.

From what I've read, they were not seen again after heading to the locker room.

I take the blame on telling people they returned to the sidelines. If they'd returned, someone else would've tweeted it. I just misunderstood the initial WDSU reporter tweet.

I hope they don't go back to the Greenbrier next year. Find some where that helps then not have these issues in the future.

With Rankins going down I don't think I could handle losing these three to serious injuries at this point.

Gonna hold out until there's some real information before deciding if I should jerk the wheel on the drive home from work.
