    No it's definitely a true story but unlike Royal I didn't need an ambulance or gurney I just got up and continued practicing like a true warrior and nobody knew about it until now.

    Not getting medical treatment for a bruised lung/collapsed lung/etc... Isn't being a warrior, its being stupid. I'm glad you were able to get up and walk it off after getting the wind knocked out of you but it doesn't make Royal weak to need medical attention.

    Brutal... Someone asked (here or on Twitter) whether Chargers Park had been built on an old native american burial ground... I wouldn't be surprised at this point...

    That or AJ is having fun playing with voodoo dolls :p

    Rough run of "luck"

    wow, hopefully he is ok, i read it's a bruised lung and a possible concussion. i dont know the healing time for a bruised lung but i doubt it's very quickly. our once stout WR core is getting pretty thin.....im not to happy about that.

    i was glad to hear they brought in "TUTU" again, i've always liked him. he ability and him and rivers seem to work well together....i wonder if they will attempt to bring in another vet WR FA?

    on the flipside this could be an oppurtunity for some one like depalma who has had a decent camp/preseason showing thus far to make a roster spot and get some snaps in the regular season,

    at any rate heal up eddie, hope to see you back at it soon.....

    Honestly im not oppposed to Legs commin back. IMO he was the next Eric Parker. We could use a goto on third downs. Also IMO Legs didnt get enuff play time to show his true skillset while he was here or with CAR.

    Derek Wolfe being investigated for spinal cord injury looks like we aren't the only ones being shafted by injury

    I still want to see a 4 TE formation.

    Gates, Ladarius, Philips, and (whoever the 4th TE on the roster is... Cotton?) would be fun to watch in the red zone.

    Think #1 lost his NFL career, not just a year. Hard to think of anyone doing anything more than kicking the tires for a #4-5 receiver.

    Everything I hear from UT, Radio, Twitter, etc. says M80 could be back by week 1, at worst week 2. He is already practicing on the side field jogging and catching balls.

    I'm hearing standard bruised lung recovery is 1 to 2 weeks, but with a concussion on top, no idea.

    Brown looks great, please stay healthy. Pleased with the fight in Keenan Allen, please stay healthy. Meacham better step his *** up. Really think Mike Willie can help this team. Good gunner. Not blazing speed but catches in traffic well.

    Depalma looks like solid practice squad guy. Tasker maybe as well. TuTu is an odd one. No real break away speed, but great height and great chemistry with Philip so...

    I am really hoping Seattle can't keep WR Steve Williams and we somehow pick him up. He's been on a tear in pre season this year, but I remember him making his debut in AZ, had a very Victor Cruz like come out of no where game and never looked back until he got hurt and was never to be seen or heard of again..........until now.

    I am going to tell you this one time. If you are trying to get a rise out of this group. Don't. It's just going to lead you down the road of getting embarrassed. Trolling is not a good idea here.

    On a more serious note, Royal is out of the hospital..... no timetable yet for his return, but probably at least a month.
