Taylor to Have Second Procedure (Updated)

Jason Reid reports:

Defensive end Jason Taylor will undergo a second surgical procedure Monday to have fluid drained from his left calf, Coach Jim Zorn said after practice today at Redskins Park.

"There's been talk about it, but to be honest, I don't even know what the game plan is right now," Taylor said late this afternoon of his upcoming surgery. "I'm going to the hospital now to find out what we're going to do. The only thing I'm really focusing in on right now is hopefully playing in the game on Sunday and trying to help this team beat the Lions. The rest of it doesn't really matter right now. I've been hurt for a month, and it hasn't changed."

Taylor, whom Zorn said would play against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, has healed slowly after having emergency surgery Sept. 22 to relieve acute compartment syndrome, a buildup of pressure on muscle groups because of internal bleeding. It is unclear whether Taylor would miss the Nov. 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at FedEx Field.

The former NFL defensive player of the year has healed slowly, in part, because he has played the last two weeks against the St. Louis Rams and Cleveland Browns. The constant pounding on Taylor's calf has had an adverse effect on the healing process, Zorn said.

Taylor underwent tests Thursday to determine if an infection could be contributing to his lack of progress in healing. He has no infection, Zorn said.

Seems like it would make more sense to drain it now, miss this game and the Steelers game, and then also have the bye week to get healthy for the stretch run.

Sounds like Taylor can back too soon. I watched him carefully on several plays last game and he didn't do much.

I have no idea on how this thing heals and what rehab is required. But its very clear he isn't anywhere near full strength.

Can't we do it now so we have him for Pitt? Who cares if he plays vs Detroit.

If anything we will need him next week. Rest him this week and let him roll next week.

I've only known about one case of a compartment problem and ironically, I heard about only a few weeks before Taylor hurt his. It involved a guy who had it in his leg. It apparently did enough damage that he wound up not being able to run as a result.

Basically a staph infection is a bacterial infection that's resistant to treatment - we all get staph infections at some time or another, but the bad ones are those that keep hanging around even after treatment.

My kids had a couple when they were in high school; our family doctor told me that he used to see 10 - 12 a year, and he now saw 20 - 30 a month. He felt that the standard cause for staph infections had become resistant to antibiotics

This 370 thing is old. Why not 365? Seriously...number is meaningless...it's the hits the guy has taken and CP has been pretty good to avoid them so far.

Posted by: svxcountry1 | October 24, 2008 1:20 PM | Report abuse

I agree, svx. Also, some of CP's biggest hits are on plays when he soesn't even "touch" the ball. Think about some of his blocks on LB's, when he just stones the rushers! These stats are for us to throw around, but the coaches have to look at a lot more than stats. Having said that, I would like to see CP get the second half off in Detroit.

Let's leave politics off this blog, please?? One respite from the BS would be nice.

I'd like to return ever so briefly to the 370 Curse thing. Given that allegedly no RB has ever returned to elite status after surpassing this number, it seems to me that JZ should aim to keep him well under that number. I'm sure 350 carries has done in many an RB, maybe even 330...but 370 seems insurmountable.

Here's to Clinton's only 4th quarter running being after the Lions cheerleaders.

guys, I don't think 370 is the end all be all number, but I think it's hard to deny that it's a reasonable barometer of what's "way too many carries" for an elite RB, given history. Especially one that has carried the ball more than just about anyone the last 5 years.

LONDON (AP) -- An expanded regular season would improve the overall quality of the NFL and increase interest among fans, commissioner Roger Goodell said Friday.

The NFL discussed adding one or two more games to the regular-season schedule at its owners meeting this month, but no decision was made and no change is expected for 2009.

In the long term, however, Goodell said it made sense to shorten the preseason schedule in favor of more competitive games.

"We think that's better content, it's higher quality," Goodell said. "That's what our partners, our fans are going to demand."

Goodell was speaking at a conference on the globalization of sports in London, held in conjunction with Sunday's game between the San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints at Wembley Stadium. He said the league is still working out the details of a possible expansion, and that any deal would have to be negotiated with media partners and the players' union.

"But from a quality standpoint, we believe it's one alternative to improve the quality of our game," he said, adding that the long preseason has little entertainment value for fans. "It's clear that our four preseason games are not high-quality content. They're just not at the same level our regular-season games are. They don't have the consequences."

Goodell spoke during a panel discussion with Richard Scudamore, the chief executive of the English Premier League. When asked by moderator Jim Nantz of CBS, Goodell said the NFL had looked briefly at the possibility of copying the model of European football leagues -- where the bottom teams get relegated to a lower league every year -- but rejected it as unfeasible.

"It is a fascinating concept, and we've actually talked about it a great deal," he said. "Relegation is something that has created a great deal of interest. But it would be counter to everything we do now."

I'm starting to dislike Goodell more and more...

A water pill is a diuretic, and the reason why people call it a water pill should be obvious. Staph is ubiquitous to skin and therefore most surfaces. The issue is when it invades the body through an open wound. Recently, staph has become increasingly resistant to antibiotics, therefore causing greater concern. Staph can colonize the bones, or cause a whopping localized infection leading to sepsis and death. Someone in my church recently had a staph infection in his ulna (forearm bone) and had to get IV antibiotics for a couple weeks.

Posted by: JesusFreakKaren | October 24, 2008 2:07 PM | Report abuse

Certainly diuretics mask steroid use, but they also can be used to control weight, which is a problem for some players.

Posted by: CindyBoren | October 24, 2008 2:07 PM | Report abuse

I profoundly agree that Taylor should drain the thing now and sit this week.

If he still can't make it back by Pitt, then so be it, he ends up with almost 4 weeks rest and rehab, and we're good to go for the stretch run.

Portis will be fine, he may end up sitting second halves or second and third quarters and be just fine.

Diuretic: Anything that promotes the formation of urine by the kidney. (The word "diuretic" comes from a combination of the Greek "dia-", thoroughly + "ourein", to urinate = to urinate thoroughly).

Lasix: is a loop diuretic (water pill) that prevents your body from absorbing too much salt, allowing the salt to instead be passed in your urine.

I'm curious why the steroid policy is the way it is. If a player's urine is simply dilute it is the same as if the player came back with a positive result. If there's no diuretics in the player's system, then you just do a quick specific gravity test before they leave, and if it is too dilute, you have them drink nothing and wait a couple hours and pee again.

From the Redskins blog:

Good day for the defense, highlighted by a great Carlos Rogers interception from in front of Fred Davis. Rocky McIntosh and Fred Smoot also had interceptions, and Smoot and Leigh Torrence both knocked down a few passes. “Couple days rest really helps to keep everything kosher,” Smoot said afterward.
Smoot also noted again that the Friday practice is about “red zone, dotting I’s and crossing T’s,” and that what it looked like. The first-team offense looked crisp — Santana Moss especially has really had a good week of practice — and, as noted, the first-team defense was really flying around. I’m reiterating my disagreement with Peter King from earlier today: if something goes wrong for the Redskins this week, it’s not because they haven’t been focused on the game.

OK, I'll spell it out for you Greg. Zorn says Taylor's slow healing is partly due to the pounding he is taking. They already appear to have a procedure lined up for Monday to address a problem that they anticipate as a result of playing on Sunday. Taylor hasn't been productive on the field. He pulls out of a commitment to speak to reporters.

So why is an injured and currently unproductive player, who can have major impact when healthy, playing now? Especially since the other guys, notably Evans, are playing better? Especially since playing is slowing his recovery?

That's why it feels like there is more to this story.

The Skins should be concerned about Staph infections this week -- particularly with players like Taylor who have open wounds. Do you think Jason had to tackle Kellen Winslow last week?

The Skins should rest Taylor until the Cowboys game on 11/16. They certainly could use him next week against the Steelers, but hopefully he'll be more effective and fully healed after sitting out 3-4 weeks. Sounds like coming back after two weeks was just too soon...

I for one have never understood all the hatin on CP since he has been here. He has had like 1300, 1500, 6 or 7 hundred (injury shorten season) and that was playing on bad offenses that had no passing game to speak of.

And if you ask me Denver's running game has not been near as good since he left town. Sure they have had 1,000 yard rushers, but it don't take much in a 16 game season to get a G.

Also since entering the NFL in 02 only LT has had more yardage in the regular season 9,860 to Portis’ 8,533 and that is in 11 more games.

Just glad CP finally getting the credit he deserves this year as one of the NFL's best backs (the best this year!!!)

Good stuff on CP26. The whole 370 thing needs to be put incontext. I feel like that figure is a marker for RB's that dont normally carry so many times, then they have a couple years where there carries are up or one year in particular with many carries 370 and they are never the same. CP26 is the definition of a workhorse and has been totting the ball as much as anyone since he came into the league. Since he regularly sees carries in the 300-340+ range I dont see this figure as having an impact on him. Howvea for certain backs hitting that mark can be a death spell.

Perhaps this has been mentioned before, but I don't think compartment syndrome is an easy injury to recover from. I know someone that suffered from this, in his calf, and it has taken over a year and a half for things to resolve. Obviously, Taylor received better, more immediate care, but I've been very nervous about this injury from the beginning. I hope things work out for the best and he returns soon, but I suspect he will struggle with this all season.

Hopefully when Taylor gets healthy it probably would be wise to let him play his original position from the right side. Afterall, Taylor hardly been hurt when he played from the right side. Moving Carter to the left won't matter because he's not doing much anyway. Why try changing an all-star defensive end?
