    Eddie Royal has been loaded onto gurney, lifted into back of an ambulance, which is about to drive away. McCoy will update after practice.

    Ugh the hits just keep on coming. Honestly, when paramedics get involved, I could care less about the team. I just hope the guy is going to be OK ya know? Scary stuff.

    Indications are that it's a back injury....although he was walking to the training room before sitting down on the ground.

    So I guess that could be construed as a positive.

    Mike McCoy says Eddie Royal landed on back. Shortness of breath. Had hard time breathing. Will be evaluated further at hospital.


    Strange.

    Sounds like a collapsed lung - or at least they're taking the precautions for it.

    Worst case scenario, yeah.
    Best case he just got the wind knocked out of him really badly, maybe head hit the ground too.

    Once upon a time a was hit on the chest on the football field. I stood up like a warrior but had shortness of breath (couldn't breathe for like 5 seconds). I didn't need a gurney or anything no one even knew about it. Royal maybe needs to be tougher.

    Edit: NVM Royal was coughing up blood sounds nothing like me

    I'm confused, is this your real life story? or is this an excerpt from Robert Meachem's new book, titled "Memoirs of a Geisha girl"

    Now that we know Eddie Royal is ok, we can say Shareece Wright might be the most dangerous defender in the NFL. (Coincidence. But crazy.)

    So we've lost our #1 receiver for a year
    Our #2 receiver for likely the first two weeks of regular season
    Our #3 receiver for who knows how long
    and we are left with Brown and Allen that have injury histories along with Meachem etc.

    Oy

    Yep, TT may have recognized the issue and stockpiled WRs, but we ran through that depth too damn quick.

    Maybe it has anyting to do with the loss of Joiner as the WR coach....? I really wish that guy was career.

    When the going gets tough, the tough get going. This team, T.T., M.M. or it seems anyone who contacts the turf is open game for the unusual and absurd. Talk about learning the hard way and baptism by fire, it's happening right in front of our eyes. No way in hell this team comes out the other side being the lessor, they may not win a lot but I have a feeling you'd know the shite just got kicked out of ya.
