Redskins DE Carriker having another surgery

Redskins DE Adam Carriker will undergo another surgery on his torn quadriceps on Thursday.
He's out indefinitely. Carriker has experienced numerous setbacks as he recovers from last year's injury, and opened camp on the PUP list. He'll also likely now open the season on reserve/PUP, costing Carriker the first six games. Stephen Bowen and Jarvis Jenkins will be Washington's Week 1 starting ends.


you're entitled to think that - I really do NOT agree, more of a shame at this point ...

No way. He had 1 OK yr (2010) considering the mess at NT that yr & 1 very good yr (2011). Given what we gave up for him, we have already got more than our money's worth.

Whatever savings gained wouldn't be worth the message sent out to the players.

This man bust his arse for us the moment he got here. He had an injury, has worked diligently to come back and has had setbacks. These things happen, it's football. It happened to Rak. It's happened to Carriker and Keenan.

Let's reward their diligence and hard work ethic with some faith. And let's not send the message that the moment you get hurt, you'll get cut to the rest of the team.

How hard do you expect guys to push themselves if they have to worry about being released if they're injured?

This isn't pointed at you specifically but to fans in general. This isn't Madden, these are real people with families and livelihoods. These are relationships and levels of trust that each have with one another.

He's got a Option bonus coming up next year that the team never planned on paying, so if he doesn't show something this year they may not even talk to him next year about staying with the team under different terms.

If that's built into his contract than so be it. Hopefully he makes it back.

Is this a joke? We gave up little to get him, he had a good year for us. Then he got injured but I'm not aware we're giving up on him yet. What possibly would you call him a "bust" based on? Even if we cut him now how could you call that a "bust?"
