The initial wave of optimism emerging from South Florida on Thursday afternoon about Ryan Tannehill’s injury may have been premature.
ESPN reported overnight that the Dolphins believe the quarterback may need season-ending surgery after going down with a non-contact injury to his left knee Thursday morning.
The final determination won’t come until more doctors get a look at Tannehill’s knee, but one source told ESPN, “He’s done, I think.”
“I can’t lie, we’re all scared,” Davis said Friday, via the Denver Post. “We’re concerned because we don’t know what the future holds. When I’m at home and I do something, if I forget something I have to stop to think, ‘Is this because I’m getting older or I’m just not using my brain, or is this an effect of playing football? I don’t know that.”
Davis, who was the NFL MVP in 1998 after rushing for 2,008 yards and helping the Broncos repeat as Super Bowl champions, said he tries to keep his mind “as sharp as possible,” but that still does not take away the fear he has for his future health.
“Yeah, I’m scared… but I also know the game has gone through great lengths to change, from Pop Warner to college,” Davis said. “People ask me the question, would you let your kids play? Yeah, I would. Now, 10 years ago I may have said something different. But now, the way they’re teaching kids to Cheap International Soccer Jerseys tackle, the fact that they identify concussions a lot faster, they sit you out a couple plays, you’re not going to practice as long. All that stuff is helping the game of football. But, yes, I’m Cheap Jarome Iginla Jerseys concerned.”
