  • PJ Alexander Tears ACL

    ALEXANDER TEARS ACL: P.J. Alexander's season ended well before it began, as the third-year guard tore his anterior cruciate ligament, knocking him out of action for the upcoming season.

    Alexander finished last season by playing in five regular-season games -- including the last three -- and the playoff game at Indianapolis. Those games represented the first on-field action of his career, and he played only on special teams in those contests. He dressed for all 16 regular-season games last year but didn't get off the bench in 11 of them.

    Elway stops, loads up, throws deep down the middle of the field and Rod Smith's got it!

    Did it happen after or before signing Spikes?

    If it was after, Spikes would be a signing with the best of timings.

            Even more incentive to draft an Offensive Lineman.

              Wasn't Carlisle the intended starter anyway?
              "3rd down and about 4 with 4 minutes to go. The Chiefs are 2 of 5 on third down conversions. Now they come out with a tight slot outside of Tony Gonzalez on the right, in motion now. Green drops back to throw, he's in pressure! He can get him, Green pulls away by the jersey. Now avoids Pope! Green on the run, throws, pass is INTERCEPTED CHAMP BAILEY! Bailey has it and that is his first interception as a Bronco, Broncos ball on the 32 yard line."

                yeah, but we always have injuries. depth is valued in denver.

                  I wonder if it was his first ACL tear. It's possible he could have torn an implant/graft from a old corrected injury.

                    Yes, but it was recently reported that Alexander was pushing Carlisle for the starting spot.

                    Too bad... O-line depth is something we don't have.

                    Spikes signing... Coincidence/great timing or reaction???

                      In one of your posts in another thread you mention a conspiracy (the one about the odds), well, what if... the Broncos already knew about Alexander's injury when they called Spikes, but didn't say anything to keep his price low... wouldn't be very ethical.

                        or the broncos said there was an injury so that he would be persuaded to come to denver (if playing time could be a good possibility)

                          Interesting, but I looked in to the timing of it all and it doesn't make sense.

                          From KFFL...

                          Unless Alexander was actually injured sometime before 10:00 on Monday morning then I don't see it as being likely. Granted, Andrew Mason made the report that KFFL was referring to, but it's likely that the injury happened Tuesday afternoon - a day and a half after Spikes was signed.

                          Quoting an article about the Spikes signing...

                          "Spikes noted that he worked at right guard during his first practice. That spot was Dan Neil's domain for most of the past seven seasons, but Cooper Carlisle started there for the last month of the 2004 campaign, and P.J. Alexander rests in the mix, as well."

                          No conspiracy here I'm afraid....

                            Damn those motorcycles!

                            In all seriousness, i read in the rockymountain news today that the injury occurred on friday, so the spikes signing was in response to it. Well, at least guard is one position we have a lot of players i'm interested to see play: sewell, myers, clabo (even though it looks like he's better at tackle), and now spikes. Sure wouldn't have minded adding evan mathis' name to that list, oh well. I'm really not sold on hamilton or carlisle as starters though.

                            *edit* Oops, you beat me to it MnG.

                            I like my defensive tackles like I like my women: well over 300 lbs.

                              Wait wait wait.... No kiddin, PR? There might be merit to the theory after all. Not that it's THAT big of a deal (we must be bored)

                              Did you read it in the actual paper? This story doesn't mention when it happened....

                              Hmmm....
