You can strengthen your tendons, no?


Yes, that is possible.


Interesting. I didn't know that. One would hope that athletes start figuring out how to strengthen (stretch?) them to keep up with the muscles. I have no idea how to go about doing that or if athletes are doing this now and at what ratio to muscle-building.

Then one has to wonder how many more injuries we'll see? The athletes will continuing getting bigger, stronger and faster. And the wear and tear on the bodies will increase, meaning a NFL player's average career life will probably be briefer.


It struck me kind of funny when I read this ...
I read something very similar to it once ...
about 20-30 years ago.

The more things change the more they stay the same.

I didn't realize you can strengthen tendons either, sounds like they need to start a yoga class. Speaking of stretching, anyone notice Smith always does these kung fu back kicks between plays?

Zimmer just said everyone is playing until he rules them out. Soooo...yeah.

I've come to understand until he dismisses something as a "minor deal" or whatever that it's more significant than that. I doubt we see Sendejo on Monday night for sure. How long after that is anyone's guess right now.

Hit Man Harry? I'll have to watch for that.

Yup it's pretty funny. They caught it once or twice in the Eagles game broadcast.

I think I would show err on the side of caution with McKinnon for Monday and hold him out. Just can't jeopardize further injury.

Boone, Kendricks, and Floyd are out. McKinnon, Sendejo, and Tom Johnson are questionable.

Berger is now the only starting lineman to play every game.

Good grief, what is with all the injuries? Are we the,worst injured team,in the league?

I'm beginning to wonder if this is a direct result of players not practicing in pads.

Cornerback Captain Munnerlyn is day-to-day with a sprained ankle after getting injured on Sunday against the Lions... es.pn/2fi0Hlj

Has me wondering how all these players are getting ankle injuries.

Does seem like lots of ankle injuries. Need Boone and Kendricks back as well.

Yes, Vikings really need Kendricks back. Apparently, Munnerlyn and Joseph were at practice. I'm hoping they'll be ready to face the Skins.

Mike Zimmer said Jake Long hurt his Achilles. Likely a season-ender.

I can't remember the last time a team lost its starting and backup tackles. ON BOTH SIDES. Maybe the goat didn't die, just moved a little northwest.

At this rate, the Vikings OL is going to be down to the last two men standing and a long shoe string.

I feel like there needs to be a complete overhaul of the line next off season. I don't know. But some how they need to bring in 5 new quality linemen.

I'm wondering if they kick Boone out to LT, move Berger to guard and start Easton. Sure would be nice if Harris could come back.

Jake Long's injury split is $453K. Vikings up to ~$910K in cap room after Pruitt/Heinicke moves. Should get some space back if Long hits IR.

Karate is a great way to stretch things out. Thing is, you start slow and the more you do it the more you loosen up. When I first started I couldn't kick above my waist, now I could easily kick someone in the head. BTW, I started when I was 52.

I think if Long goes on IR his best bet is to just retire.

I would settle for 5 average right now

FYI, you dont really strengthen tendons/ligaments. You can increase their flexibility/length. Mild tears will heal over time though those structures can take longer to heal then bony fractures. Many severe ligament/tendon injuries will never really be the same. PEDs are so dangerous because they cause huge increases in muscle mass and force while NOT increasing tendon/ligament strength. Hence, that nice giant guy like Sosa, Bonds, etc suddenly starts tearin their achilles in half.

Something else to consider. There have been certain drugs known to increase tears and weakness in tendons. If I am not mistaken, Levaquin is one of them. A widely prescribed antibiotic.
