  1. I think you meant Wang is never healthy…Chung is rather unknown. What’s the update of Shai McKenzie’s health and return timetable. I am guessing Marshawn is a scratch for next yr and probably Shai too because that is 2 ACL surgeries in 2 yrs.

      1. It was slight but I caught it……yess… 80’s music was a fun time. You made me crack a smile….I needed that.

  2. Marshawn Willisms surgery on December 16, 2015. Assuming that’s a misprint lol. What date did he have his surgery? Was it 12/16/14? If so why the wait until after the season?

    1. Sometimes with extensive knee damage and swelling the MO is to do pre-op strengthening to get the inflammation down. up to 4 weeks wait to have the surgery from onset of injury. It helps speed up post-op recovery and success rate.

  3. Didn’t realize Kendall was injured too — and he still played like a beast!

    I hope all those waivers go through — could use the depth!
