In this article, I’m going to talk about three situations that I find to be disappointing. These three aren’t because of what happened, I’m disappointed at what could be because they all very well could have continuing problems with these injuries.

The Cardinals are another team with their fair share of injuries, players that are sideline as of right now are Daryl Colledge, Everrette Thompson, Jeff King, Alex Gottieb, Kory Sperry, Jamell Fleming, Karlos Dansby, and Dan Williams. With these injuries, it gives others more time to prove their worth and even possibly emerge as a star.

Coming in at number three is LaRon Byrd, he ended up getting a concussion, it could be nothing more then how he landed and it could never happen again. On the other hand, it could happen more and more when it comes to hard tacklers and that would be a major disappointment.

At number two is Rashard Mendenhall, he’s got tendinitis in his right knee and that could end up becoming a problem. When it comes to tendinitis, he has to be careful when it comes to working out, he doesn’t want to do to much to quick or it will never go away, I know all about that with having tendinitis in my right shoulder the past four years and counting.

The number one most disappointing situation to happen in camp is, Ryan Williams and having problems in a knee that was cleaned out in January. It very well could just be that he didn’t rehab good enough and doesn’t have the strength in it to handle how hard he’s running.

I really hope that Williams can overcome all these injuries and drop the injury prone player label like new teammate John Abraham did after being traded to the Atlanta Falcons. If this injury continues to hamper his play or gets hurt again, he will no longer be a Cardinal next year and possibly will be out of the league all together.

On a side note, what’s with all these injuries that’s being happening across the league? It’s like there was another CBA holdout again this season, so to the injury bug that’s being passed around the league, I give you a Mike Ditka’s STOP IT.
