  • DID I MISS THIS?? Holt had knee surgury this off season?

    I am not sure I EVER seen this. I know it is not much to threat about...but I am not sure how I missed it, or if I spaced it out.

    Was his knee surgury reported??

    From ProFantasy Sports News line.

    Holt waited until after the Pro Bowl to repair a minor cartilage tear in his knee.
    His surgery was successful and all is good in a Warner-less St. Louis. Holt is the man Bulger looks for in the passing game and last years numbers make that obvious. Holt had 1698 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns last season, numbers that wonĎt be easy to duplicate but if anyone can do them Holt and the Rams offense can. Tory is no longer just a big play receiver, he has learned how to separate from defenders in the red-zone. His average touchdown catch last season of less than 10-yards tells you the most about his maturation process. Holt is now a dependable receiver in short yardage situations and this year could become the elite receiver in the National Football league. Watch out Randy, here comes Tory.

          Since it was mentioned in another thread that Bulger came in last in the QB challenge, it should be noted that Torry H. was the MVP receiver during that same competition. He looked great -- not tentative at all, it would appear that the knee is fine!

          GO RAMMS!!!!! :helmet:

                Rams | Holt to have knee looked at when the season is over
                Thu, 15 Dec 2005 22:50:49 -0800

                Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams WR Torry Holt (knee) said after he injured his knee in the team's Oct. 9 game that he had been diagnosed with a torn posterior cruciate ligament. Holt has played well in the team's last four games despite the injury. "I wouldn't say it's gone away, but I don't have any discomfort, no soreness or anything like that," he said. "I've just kind of forgotten about it." Holt is hoping to avoid surgery in the offseason. "But I'll have it checked out again at the end of the season," he said. "If they feel that they need to go inside and clean some things up, then we'll do that. Whatever I need to do to get it tightened up and get ready for next year, I'll do that."

                Rams: Holt might have a torn ligament

                THE NEWS
                Rams wide receiver Torry Holt's knee injury might be more serious than he's been letting on. Team officials described the injury as a bruised knee, but Holt later told reporters that he had a sprained ligament. Now, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that sources confirmed that he has a torn ligament. Nevertheless, he has practiced all week and is still targeting Sunday for his return.
                Our View
                At this point, it appears Holt will play against the Seahawks. He plans to make an official decision on his playing status on Saturday, so we'll let you know what he decides once that information is released.

                Torry Holt has thought about doing an instructional video on the receiver position since his college days. He finally put one together last summer. It includes tips on training, stretching, route-running, etc., with Holt demonstrating the drills himself.

                Perhaps Holt should have included a segment on dealing with injuries. He came up limping after a touchdown catch against Arizona on Dec. 3 , and he dealt with a nagging knee problem the rest of the season. It looks like Holt will need knee surgery for only the second time in his eight seasons with the Rams, though no official decision has been made.

                "I would say it's cartilage," Holt said. "I don't think it's anything that's going to 'end' me. I think it's just going to take some minor (work), to go in, punch a couple of holes, straighten some things out, and let me get back to playing football."

                In other words, it would be an arthroscopic procedure. If Holt opts for surgery, there's a chance he would miss the Pro Bowl next month. With or without surgery, Holt sounds like he's planning a low-key offseason. Last offseason, he did television work at the Super Bowl and before the draft. But he may take a year off from those pursuits.

                "My gut feeling right now is not to do any media stuff," Holt said. "Just step back and enjoy Torry a little bit, and my family and my friends. I hadn't really had a chance to do a lot of that for a while. I've always been trying to jump into new things, and see what I like and what I don't like. ... Right now, I think I've got to take a little light time for Torry, and just relax."

                There wasn't much time for Holt to relax in the season. After a three-touchdown performance Oct. 15 against Seattle, opposing defenses zeroed in on him. He seemed to get more attention from defensive backs than ever before, and his numbers dipped. Following that first Seattle game, he went five contests without either a touchdown catch or 100-yard receiving game. He broke loose with seven catches for 115 yards and a TD against Arizona, but then the knee problem cropped up. He experienced similar problems at the end of last season, but opted against surgery.

                Holt finished with 93 catches for 1,188 yards and 10 TDs this season, ranking fourth or better in the NFC in all three categories. Every year, Holt's goals are 90 catches, 1,300 yards, and 10 TDs. So he reached two of three goals, but fell short of extending his NFL record of six consecutive 1,300-yard seasons.

                Holt isn't the only Rams player who will undergo ó or might undergo ó surgery during the offseason. Linebacker Dexter Coakley had surgery Tuesday, having a small plate removed from his ankle from an earlier injury. Offensive tackle Alex Barron needs surgery to repair torn cartilage in his...

                Holt Uses Injury to Refocus on Football
                by RamWraith

                For the better part of the past few years, Torry Holtís presence on television has been every bit as strong in the offseason as it has during the regular season.

                Whether it be breaking down prospects on the NFL Draft or hawking pizza in a commercial, Holt has been omnipresent around town when he wasnít on the field putting up his usual terrific performances.

                But this offseason was different. Holt had to go under the knife for only the second time in his career (he had a scope after the 2003 season), as he opted for surgery caused by torn meniscus in his right knee. That operation opened Holtís eyes and caused him to gain a new perspective.

                ďItís actually been good,Ē Holt said. ďMy first eight years in the league, I have been doing a lot of off the field stuff, trying to dibble and dabble in some broadcasting things and dibble and dabble in some different business stuff like that, trying to build my brand.

                ďThis year has really given me an opportunity to step back and really refocus on the game of football. Iím excited about that. Iím enjoying the break because I havenít really done anything. Iím just really trying to re-focus on whatís important and thatís football and trying to help this football team win some more championships.Ē

                That isnít to say that Holt hasnít been paying attention or hasnít been playing with focus in the past two seasons, but thereís no doubt that Holt wasnít quite himself in 2006. Holt first injured the knee on Oct. 9, 2005 in a home game against Seattle. At the time, the injury cost him two games and a bye week before returning for the rematch with the Seahawks on Nov. 13.

                Although Holt was able to play through the pain for the rest of that season, he was admittedly fatigued heading down the stretch. Still, Holt decided against having offseason surgery after that tumultuous season.

                ďI feel like I if I rehabbed and prepared and trained and did all of the necessary things, that I could get it strong enough to go out and compete those two years and kind of dodge the knife,Ē Holt said.

                He did successfully dodge surgery and rehabbed and worked to get it strong enough to last him for most of last season. But Holt also had some help along the way, receiving some extended breaks during training camp and doing everything possible to stay fresh for the season.

                Holt opened the 2006 season with one of his finest starts ever, including his miraculous 67-yard touchdown catch against Seattle on Oct. 15. Soon after, though, Holt started to slow down as teams through multiple coverage looks his way and caused him to scramble for opportunities.

                It all came to a head on Dec. 3 against Arizona when Holt went up for a touchdown catch against Cardinalsí safety Robert Griffith. Holt made the play, but took...

                Holt 'on schedule' after surgery

                Holt 'on schedule' after surgery

                After missing two games in 2005 because of a knee injury, Torry Holt thought about surgery after that season but opted against it.

                "I just didn't want to go back under the knife," Holt said. "I felt like if I rehabbed and prepared and trained and did all the necessary things in the weight room, I could get it strong enough where I could go out and compete."

                But Holt's right knee left him no choice after last season. One look at the wide receiver minutes after the '06 finale in Minnesota was telling. As the victorious Rams headed toward the visitors' locker room following that game, Holt came limping up the hallway in the Metrodome.

                "I was sore," Holt said. "That last game it had gotten to the point where it was aggravating me pretty good. But I was toughing it out. At the end of that game, I said, 'I've got to go in and have something done.' "

                Even so, Holt held out hope of postponing surgery and playing in the Pro Bowl six weeks later. But when he returned home, the simple act of going up and down his basement steps was painful. He decided to pull out of the Pro Bowl and proceed with surgery.

                Holt underwent routine surgery in February for a torn meniscus cartilage in his right knee. It was only the second knee surgery for Holt in eight NFL seasons. The Rams' full-squad minicamp, which concluded Thursday at Rams Park, marked his first extensive work on the practice field since the latest surgery.

                "For the most part, things are on schedule," Holt said. "I've got one more month to heal up and really strengthen it before we start training camp. So I'm going to try to take full advantage of it."

                As a result, Holt will spend most of the lull between now and the start of training camp working out in St. Louis.

                "I still have some soreness on the inside where I had the meniscus cleaned up," Holt said. "But that's going to be there. It's just a matter of me getting more reps and running more, and reintroducing the knee to those types of cuts that I'm used to doing."

                In part because of the knee surgery, it has been a low-key offseason for Holt. He did no television work. Cut down on his business ventures. Put off until next year a planned vacation to Paris. Thursday's get-together with a half-dozen reporters marked his first interview session since the end of the '06 season.

                "I'm just trying to refocus on what's important, and that's football ó trying to help this football team and this organization win some more championships," Holt said. "I'm just kind of taking a step back from the 'quote-unquote' limelight, and really putting a great deal of emphasis on football."
