    Keeping him out of team practice. Per SMY on Twitter.

    Not just conditioning, but it's also the time of the year where Haynesworth receives his annual knee lubrication injection; a procedure that has been done since he's been with the Titans.

    Speaking of Shalise, if someone has the url of her RSS feed and could post it, I'd be grateful.

    Not really a surprise. I guess it is good to hear this being floated though as it can ease our wondering whether it could have been an injury or Al being Al.

    That front line will be so big we might get called for "twelve men" on every play.

    I know and then I laughed at myself for celebrating aweful conditioning.

    Would you allow yourself to be sandwiched between them for a Klondike bar?

    the thing I like about them is even if you know what's coming it might not matter. I hope the refs are ready for calling chop blocks this season.

    Not sure if she has an individual one at Boston.com, but the Globe's Patriots news is all grouped under the following feed:

    Boston.com -- Patriots news

    As for her Twitter feed, Twitter recently stopped supported RSS for some reason, but this should still work (doesn't work in Google Reader though, oddly enough):


    Twitter / shalisemyoung

    Personally, I've taken to having a few accounts (Adam Schefter, mainly) have all tweets texted to me. Works like a charm.

    Now this makes a lot of sense and sets my mind a rest abit. BB would never publicly tell the media a player is undergoing a medical procedure, during the season when he didn't HAVE to. This "conditioning" excuse is a perfect cover.

    BTW- Even if it truly is a conditioning issue, it doesn't bother me a bit.....IF Albert is working hard and is diligent in correcting the condition.l I'm sure that every team is undergoing conditioning issues after this strange off season.

    IF he isn't undergoing a medical procedure, or isn't diligent about getting into great shape, then Dump his sorry ass to the gutter, and it will be a great object less to both the rookies and Vets

    He's probably sore as a motherplucker after not doing anything all off-season and then coming in and blowing sh!t up. I played football one time and then was sore for a week and could barely move for two of those days.

    Funny, I seem to remember Reiss saying that Al walked off the field "gingerly" about a week ago, and he hasn't practiced since. Am I remembering incorrectly?

    Really don't care about what SMY has to say. She's got an agenda that's centered around making BB look bad.

    In any case, Al passed his original conditioning test, so he isn't so horrifically out of shape that there's no hope left for him this year.

    Yup. I used to breed elite show horses and one of my best sold as a 4 year old with a slight lesion in one joint from an injury he sustained as a baby. Never took a lame step in his life, but the sale vet recommended he get these shots monthly during show season just as a precaution. Sucker is still showing at 17 and never has taken a lame step. It won't fix a problem although it can make it less painful, but it can also keep a potential problem from getting worse.

    Dang....I was hoping he had an injury that kept him out most of the preseason, to the point speculation would start that he wouldn't make the final roster cutdown.

    The last time that happened with a malcontent but extremely talented player we had just traded a low pick for, he scored 23 TDs that season. ;)

    Seriously though, I hope he gets back soon and can work on being the player we hope he can be this season.
