    It's been reported that Garcia was down to 260 lbs at one point, but that he's been gaining it back quickly.

    Were you in to Alicia Silverstone too? :D

    A quick google search shows she's aging a lot better than Jerry did!

    I hear you : but if his career is even close to as successful as Bosh's, huge win.

    All I read during camp was that he needed to bulk up to be an NFL lineman.

    Hopefully this was why and he makes a full recovery.

    My guess is 5,000 calories per day spread over several meals and hours spent in the weight room.

    Yes, sumo wrestlers know how to gain weight.

    The issue is for him being in the same football shape he was before the injuries. I presume that Garcia was in top football shape for at least 10 years, playing a season of football every year.

    A year off is a serious problem, especially when he lost his rookie year of getting NFL habits and physical understanding of plays and blocking.

    Just like TFB has his guru, I'd send a message to Garcia telling him to adopt Vince Wilfork as his guru. Those massive delicious ribs the Wilfork family are always cooking up make me hungry.

    Do we actually have any evidence that he was not doing anything football related for the entire year ? I mean just because he was not medically cleared to bulk up it doesn't automatically follow that he was not reading up on all protection schemes, working on footwork or arm techniques..

    Do we know it really was a lost year for him and not closer to somewhat of a redshirt year ?

    I imagine, he was doing some footwork things, but i'm not sure how IR etc works

    I'm really good at the first half of that.

    Yeah, he may not have entirely regained his previous conditioning level by the start of 2018 Camp. However, he just turned 24 in December, so he should be pretty close by then. We're not talkin' about Alan Branch here.

    Jelks, OTOH, apparently hasn't even practiced much since sometime in early 2015.

    AFAIK, physically practicing with the team is the only thing not allowed for a player on IR. Film sessions, game-planning meetings, re-habbing and working out at the team facility are all ok, I believe.

    Reports were that he was regularly seen at the facilities towards the end of last season and definitely has some bulking up to do, but it’s good news that he is back on track.

    People talk about Garcia like he is done for. As if a dude in his early 30’s with a professional training staff and access to chef’s & nutritionists can’t pack back on 40 lbs. It’s easy as hell. I remind myself of that every time I look in the mirror! ;) If he’s healthy enough to play, he’ll play. If he can’t pack on the weight, we’ll just plug his ass in at TE.:D

    So he had a pulmonary embolism? He's lucky that it didn't kill him. Those are no joke.

    I was speed-reading through the last part of your comment because the phone rang, and I mistakenly read it as, "If he can’t pack on the weight, we’ll just plug his ass with a TE."

    The first 60 seconds of that phone call was me laughing.

    Now that is some funny **** right there. But if Garcia turns out to be an absolute waste of a pick, you might be on to something! ;)
