That does not change the fact that steroids make it FAR more likely for muscle tears after years of steroid use. For all we know, it could have been purely bad luck, but the side-effects of steroids make injuries like this far more frequent. I am not debating the legality and cleanliness of the hit.
you are still assuming that he took steroids for years. He got caught taking them but that doesn't necessarily mean he took them for years

That hit occurred at least a yard and a half outside the tackle box where clipping is "legal". Steroids or not, it was a dirty play and should be cause for heavy fine and suspension.

You're better than this. I don't care if someone used steroids or not, if a player rolls on his knee the wrong way its going to tear. Steroids have as much to do with that injury as the color his underwear.

what you are doing is looking for an excuse to blame steroids or bash a guy who took them. He was hurt because he got hit from behind on the knee.

just remember in the past of hearing him possibly losing time.. or something.. i guess he never served the suspension tho?


he missed 4 games in 2010 due to suspension, not injury. In the pros he has not missed any time until now due to injury.

He got cut ok and it wasn't a clip because head was in front. I'm not sure it was a smart clean play well it was dumbass move by OL. I get why he did it though.

Not really anything that looked to be purposeful to injure a guy, just stupidity on the OL part.

I think he should sit out at least 1 game, if not more. There is absolutely no need for that shit



Meeeeeeh.

If Bernard Pollard was never suspended, then this guy shouldn't be either.
