  • Glenn Dorsey Alert!!!!

    An NFL team doctor told NFLDraftScout.com that there are serious concerns over the lingering effects of a 2006 stress fracture in the right tibia of Louisiana State's highly-rated defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey. Dorsey, generally considered a top five prospect in the NFL Draft, underwent a physical Saturday at the Scouting Combine, and was subsequently sent to the hospital for additional tests. Dorsey elected not to work out at the Combine, explaining he stopped preparing for the Combine because of the death of his grandmother. However, there are still issues with the tibia that has raised red flags among NFL teams. The team doctor told NFLDraftScout.com the stress fracture is in an area of the tibia that is difficult to heal. Dorsey played most of the 2006 season at LSU with the injury, and took painkillers before every game. He wore a bone stimulator for up to 18 hours per day until he was cleared to practice in the spring of 2007. Before that, Dorsey considered entering the 2007 NFL Draft, but told ESPN college football reporter Joe Schad, "I have a few injuries that I believe would have hindered me in the draft. I have a leg injury that I really want to get healed up, so I'm coming back so we have a chance to win the SEC and maybe even a national championship." LSU did win the national championship, while Dorsey played the season with several injuries. He was limited in preseason drills because of a sore hamstring, then suffered a sprained right knee against Auburn on Oct. 20, and missed most of the second half of that game. - Howard Balzer, Senior Writer, NFLDraftScout.com

      Yeah, I'm thinking Ellis over Dorsey now. Will Dorsey fall to 6-10? If so, where does he go? No. 9 to Cincy?

        Looks like the Jets could be really screwed if it goes like:

        1. Chris Long
        2. Vernon Gholston
        3. McFadden
        4. Sedrick Ellis
        5. Jake Long

          Chilllllll Walter. Maybe this isn't a general consensus. Too early imo and I think this is pre-mature analysis about an injury 2 months away from the Draft.

            The way I see it, he played pretty damn good while injured. Imagine how good he'll be once he heals!

                Alert indeed. A top 5 pick in my mind can not have any injury concerns. We all know that's why Purple Jesus fell to 7 last year and we'll have to wait about 4 more seasons before we can judge whether those 6 teams made a good choice passing up on him. The guaranteed money aside, just think what a number 3 pick (or thereabouts) can get you. If this is true, he might slippery slide down the board.

                  I think the lowest Dorsey can possibly go is No. 12 to Denver... Unless this thing is really bad.

                        Pre-mature knee jerk (no pun) analysis.

                          Matt, if you're Atlanta or Oakland, do you take a guy whose knees are that injured?

                            It's just speculation of what could happen.

                              Totally speculation. However if it turns out to be true, who wants a guy with an injury he nevers shrugs, and who has to take pain killers before each game?
