LaRon Landry had surgery to repair dislocated wrist

By Mike Jones

Washington Redskins strong safety LaRon Landry is recovering from surgery to repair a dislocated left wrist, an injury he suffered during the second week of the season.

Landry, who had the surgery Feb. 4, said in a phone interview Sunday night that he knew the extent of the injury shortly after the 30-27 overtime loss to the Houston Texans. But he chose to play through the pain.

"You do what you gotta do," said Landry, who went on to play another seven games and was on pace for a career year with 85 tackles, an interception, a sack and a forced fumble before a badly strained left Achilles' tendon caused him to miss the final seven games of the season.

Landry was placed on Injured Reserve on Dec. 13.

The fourth-year pro said doctors inserted two screws inserted in his wrist and repaired torn ligaments. He is expected to be in a cast for four to six weeks.

Landry said his Achilles' tendon feels much better than it did last season.

"I'll say it's about 90 percent," he said. "I won't say 100 percent because I don't know what kind of endurance I have in it, but as far as how it feels, it's doing good and I'll say 90 percent."

Landry had shockwave therapy done Dec. 24, and now he is receiving Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments to heal micro-tears in his Achilles' tendon. A newer procedure, PRP treatment is intended to accelerate tissue regeneration. The procedure involves drawing blood from the area and placing it in a machine that spins the blood to separate platelets from the other blood components. From there, the concentrated platelets are then re-injected into the area where they release regenerating growth factors. Tiger Woods and Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polomalu are among some of the higher-profile athletes that have recently opted for PRP treatments.


Landry had one treatment during the season, but many times up to six rounds of the treatment are required. And so the fourth-year pro has resumed the treatment and will complete the full course.

"I haven't started running," said Landry, who is training in Arizona this offseason. "But I'm back to doing everything with my legs: squats and everything like that. I'm working out just like I used to other than my left side. I obviously can't grab a dumbbell with that side, but I'm doing single-arm bench presses."

Landry said he also is having PRP treatments done on his right shoulder. He was scheduled to undergo surgery on that same shoulder during the first week of January, but he opted instead for alternative medicine.

Sunday night was the first time Landry had spoken since the week before he was placed on Injured Reserve. Even at that point, he was hoping for a return, but later that week he tested the tendon and was unable to run even after four weeks in a walking boot. The Redskins then pulled the plug on Landry's season. Crushed, he said he didn't watch the final four games of Washington's 6-10 campaign.

"I couldn't," Landry said. "When you've got somebody in your position, and you know what you could be doing to help your team, but you're not able to, and they're losing, It was just too hard to watch."

At the time he went on IR, Landry was the leading Pro Bowl vote-getter for NFC safeties. The disappointment of not being able to continue vying for what would've been his first Pro Bowl selection also was painful, Landry said.

"I definitely didn't watch the Pro Bowl," he said. "I heard about [Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall earning MVP honors in Hawaii], and I was proud of him for that, but I definitely couldn't watch that game."

Landry obviously can't wait for next for next season to begin -- whenever that may be -- and when it does, he has high expectations for himself and his team.

"Next year is going to be a great one," declared Landry, who is entering the final season of his rookie contract. "We've got the tools; it's just a matter of putting them together. With Coach Shanahan and his mind-set, you know anything's possible."

Posted by: brownwood26 | February 14, 2011 9:33 AM |

Even though Romo is a first class doosh and wasn't drafted first overall - or at all for that matter. I don't get the sense Romo is as in love with himself as the doosh that brought his talents to South Beach.

Lastly, Romo is 20 times tougher than LeBron. The dude falls down if you even look at his elbow while he's shooting.

Our LaRon would literally kill LeBron if he ever nutted-up and got out on a football field.

There are precious few guys who had the speed and toughness to play in the NFL.

I would submit Alan Iverson (QB/WR), Jordan (WR), Barkley (DE/TE), Malone (DE/TE), maybe Artest as a TE.

Shaq would be too tall but I'd love to see it. Sean Bradly would last about 2 plays and end up looking like Joe Theisman's leg.

P_F, the "LeBron = Romo" thing had less to do with toughness or their respective games so much as it has to do with them being really good individual players that can't lead a team to a championship. Good, talent players that lack leadership or "it" to get a team over the hump.

Moe, that's big of you to be able to call it like you see it...especially when some of your Republican "brethren" typically don't enjoy such a level of clarity, and go as far as to outright lie about what the hell has happened over most of the last decade. You have my respect...whatever that's worth.

And I'm sure if you took a poll on the blog, it would be somewhere between AH's trade value and the level of fan interest in bringing Jeff George back to be the new starting QB...

Understood. It's true they both choke like dogs. Whether it's Romo fumbling away a big game or LeBron passing away an opportunity to make a game-winning shot to unknown players.

Neither is much of a leader and I just don't see that as something you can develop at this stage of life.

Will readily admit that I'm not licensed to practice medicine on this blog, but am still wondering why he waited so long to have the surgery.

If he has been on the IR list since the middle of December -- it seems he may have wasted two months already that he could used on rehabbing after surgury.

All of these injuries also lead me to wonder if LL30 might want to consider hiring another personal trainer -- or at least adapting his training routines -- as his daily weightlifting seems to have left his ripped last season -- in more ways than one.

The cowboys could use secondary help and an athletic guard.

Their defensive front-7 is good, but their secondary gave up tons o' yards.

They'll probably try to add some atheletic in-line blockers as protecting Romo and running the ball are two things they don't do well.

P_F, the Cowpies are highly preoccupied by skill position players...I wouldn't be shocked at all to see them ignore the O-line completely and take another WR or QB in the first round...

LL is much bigger and tougher than Sanders. They do
have similar styles which is why Sanders can't
hold up for an entire season. LL will be fine injuries
happen but he stayed fairly healthy his whole
career college and pro.

(Warning: BBall post on a slow day.)

If LeBron doesn't win it all in Miami, then you could conclude that he doesn't have what it takes. But he was absolutely right that the Cavs were not surrounding him with the talent to win it all. Their owner is as foolish as Cerrato claiming otherwise. Without LBJ the Cavs are the worst team in the league.

I'm not a fan of his personally, but what he did essentially creating his own big 3, taking that decision out of the hands of the owners, was just as impressive as the way Boston did it. They get kudos for it, he gets slammed. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

B) Obviously people care what presidents I like or don't like or they wouldn't have bothered to respond or conversate. III) There is a record because every one of these threads is saved in the archives and is easily accessible by any scmuck with a tower and a keyboard.

If you don't like it ignore it. No one asked you to chime in and your uninformed interjection points you out to be someone who feels they need to attack someone else to feel special instead of adding something meaningful to any conversation.

I didn't, but I do have some issues:

--has rock music died?

--who's listening to jazz music to where a jazz artist is the Best New Artist winner?

--so Eminem is the only rapper we have now, right?

--if no one is really buying music any more, why is the recording industry even relevant?

--is it me, or are there fewer people in music today who can actually sing or play instruments?

--why was Mick Jaggar invited?

--has Aretha Franklin been given the gravy and biscuits injectionsshe needed to live yet?

--how come both Country and R&B music sound lame and formuliac?

--and, finally, where was a drunk Kanye West.

We could use him.

Along with some real good new music, too.

I'd like to interject that I hate Mick Jaggar (except in Freejack of course)...politics...and pro basketball...but everyone feel free to talk about those topics...I don't mind.

You'll be hearing about her for a long, long time to come.


Didn't they say that about Kenny G?

(Just Kiddin'.)

If she can stop me from listening to Coltrane, Peterson, Harris, Davis, Armstrong, Tatum, Parker, Getz, Montgemory, Krall, et al...

...it'll be a major miracle.

I'll check her out, though.

Haha Moe...she won't make you "stop listening" to them per se, but she'd be a nice addition to the rotation.

I'm more into contemporary jazz than some of the classical jazz legends you mentioned, but I think you'll find that Spalding sits somewhere in the middle of the two.

This was the first time I heard her...let me know what you think:
