Pretty obvious he's gutting through a torn pec. He wasn't using the right side of his upper body to block at all, and was still doing a decent job of blocking with just his Left arm.While watching the game, an announcer said Armstead left early and only went back in briefly. Anyone hear anything?
Rest him from here to playoffs.Pretty obvious he's gutting through a torn pec. He wasn't using the right side of his upper body to block at all, and was still doing a decent job of blocking with just his Left arm.
He's going to be a warrior and try and play through it, but its obvious that man is going to need surgery when the season ends.
Oh he will be rested for sure, but it's not something that's going to heal in time.Rest him from here to playoffs.
Can try him in in the big games. If he can stand the pain and they have something rigged that prevents further injury then ok, but he needs more time (that we may not have).
We need depth but not sure what his next contract should be.What do we do going forward though? I mean after this season. We all know the talent he has but injuries have been a real concern and it can derail a team with constant changes at O Line due to the same player getting injured. It seems like he’s only healthy for 60% of the games each season. If we were to draft another LT then what does that mean for TA?
Of course it's done intentionally, it's football it's a viable strategy if you know you're playing against a guy who has an injury you're going to test it over and over again and see if he can hold up.When I saw this I wondered if it was done intentionally.
He's hurt all the time however.Oh you definitely keep a top 5 Tackle in Football. He got injured on a freak play, a guy tangled arms with him going to the ground and his arm got pinned in an awkward position. Things happen.
Armstead will get surgery after the season ends and go back to his reformed conditioning and nutrition program that got him in the best shape of his life and will have his healthiest season to date next season.
