    Cortland Finnegan has a nose injury? Is that even worth reporting?

    If he has a broken nose, that could affect numerous things. Play being one of them.

    Kellen Clemens got his nose broken in the preseason game against Baltimore and kept right on playing. It happens to football players all the time, usually with little affect. Basketball players too. They put a face guard on and get right back to playing. I guess Finnegan must have a really bad nose injury, because his play has been really bad as well.

    Ouch ... that hurt (I don't mean his nose). Good one!

    I'm still hoping Mr. Finn will soon resume his effective play. I really trust he will.

    Oh, that explains why he doesn't seem to have a nose for the ball so far.

    Maybe Long hit him too hard with one of those cream pies in the face....

    Re: Injury report Wed. 18 p.m.

    Makes me think of this:
    Scout.com: Unitas Will Never Be Forgotten
    And there may never have been a tougher player than Johnny U. He was a man’s man. The stories are classic. There was the time when Unitas didn’t let a broken nose deter him, jamming mud up his nose from the playing field to stop the bleeding. No.19 played with broken ribs, a broken index finger and other broken body parts almost as regularly as he threw touchdowns. If Unitas came out of a game, he didn’t come out willingly. Unlike Randy Moss, Unitas played on every down, every Sunday.

    Too funny! LOL!


    That quote that Heff posted (#10) about Johnny U gives a glimpse of how barbaric - and painful - it was to play football back then, say, from the turn of Century XX to perhaps the dawn of this Century XXI. MUCH has changed since. Some of it had to change due to a natural progression of smarts to help players have longer careers (namely personal protective equipment at the job), and some of it was because the game got softer and the lawsuits got harder.

    There's no doubt that today's players are still tough mentally and physically. But they were once tougher. True, the game has gotten more complex and sophisticated in terms of schemes whereas before it was more physically demanding.

    Larry Wilson, HOF safety for the STL Cardinals from 1960-72, tough as nails, could bite (and chew gum) even without teeth; once played with two broken hands in casts ... intercepted two passes that game. A player I admired.

    Watch video in this article (copy'n paste):
    Taylorblitztimes.com/2012/06/09/the-soul-of-the-game-larry-wilson/.

    Our very own Jack Youngblood, HOF. And a long list of others of an NFL era 50 - 100 years ago. Pro football was simply harder, terribly harder. NFL's Greatest HITS.





    I hope to see Cortland Finnegan back this week ... and back to Pro Bowl form!

    Re: Injury report Wed. 18 p.m.

    Borrowing, if I may, from Maui's new thread 'Starks jumps right in with Rams', as follows...

    INJURY UPDATE
    Sept. 19, 2013 p.m.
    By Jim Thomas


    Seven of the 10 players who were listed on the Rams’ Wednesday injury report were full participation on Thursday. That group included: DE Chris Long (hip), DE William Hayes (hip), DE Eugene Sims (foot), CB Cortland Finnegan (nose), OG Chris Williams (foot), S Darian Stewart (thigh), and RB Daryl Richardson (foot).

    All seven of those players were held out of practice Wednesday, and Richardson was in a walking boot.

    Not practicing Thursday were OT Saffold (knee) and TE Mike McNeill (chest). Also, CB Quinton Pointer (thigh) is no longer on the team. He was waived Thursday to make room for Starks.
    ...it would seem that Mike McNeill would be probable for Sunday vs Dallas. I suppose our other injured TE, Corey Harkey is not ready to see action yet because of that knee fracture.

    ================================================


    As for the Cowpokes' latest injury report:

    Star-Telegram
    Sept. 19, 2013 p.m.
    By Charean Williams


    Cowboys correct injury report to show Spencer limited in practice, along with Dez

    Defensive end Anthony Spencer was on the practice field and did practice on a limited basis. The Cowboys' official practice report initally listed Spencer as out again Thursday, but they later corrected it to indicate Spencer was limited. Spencer has practiced only three times since left knee surgery July 25. He missed Wednesday's practice after playing 34 plays against the Chiefs on Sunday in his first action of the season.

    Receiver Dez Bryant (back spasms) did get in a limited practice Thursday.

    Cornerback Morris Claiborne (shoulder) and defensive end DeMarcus Ware (neck) were limited again. Linebacker Ernie Sims (groin) did not practice. Quarterback Tony Romo (ribs) went through a full practice.

    Friday / St. Louis P-D:

    INJURY UPDATE
    Sept. 20, 2013 p.m.
    By Joe Lyons


    The Rams' injury concerns — nine players sat out Wednesday's practice — appear to be easing as Sunday's game against the Cowboys in Dallas approaches.

    Friday's injury report included nine players, but seven of them participated fully in practice.

    As expected, right tackle Rodger Saffold (knee) has been ruled out of the Dallas game. Mike McNeill (chest), the reserve tight end from Kirkwood High, also missed Friday's workout and is questionable for Sunday.

    Saftety Darian Stewart (thigh) practiced Friday but is also listed as questionable.
    The remaining Rams on the injury list — defensive ends Chris Long (hip), Eugene Sims (foot), Williams Hayes (hip), cornerback Cortland Finnegan (nose), running back Daryl Richardson (foot) and guard Chris Williams (foot) — all practiced on Friday and are probable for Sunday.

    “We got a lot of guys back on the practice field yesterday and today and had two really good days of practice,'' Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said following Friday's workout at Rams Park.


    Dallas' injury report includes six players. Linebacker Ernie Sims (groin) is out and defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee) is questionable after not practicing on Friday. Defensive end DeMarcus Ware (neck) was limited Friday and is questionable. The other three players, quarterback Tony Romo (ribs), wide receiver Morris Claiborne (back) and cornerback Morris Claiborne (shoulder) practiced Friday and are probable for Sunday.

    I hope to see Cortland Finnegan back to Pro Bowl form!
