Niklas Hjalmarsson Jersey
Colts owner Jim Irsay kept promising that Andrew Luck was coming back. Tuesday Gabriel Landeskog Jersey Kids , Luck himself admitted he wasn’t sure.
Via Mike Wells of ESPN.com, Luck said there were times during his 19 months of shoulder rehab that he didn’t know if he’d made it back to his previous level as a quarterback.
“There were one or two moments where I wondered if I am ever going to be able to do this again,” Luck said. “Certainly this [preseason opener] isn’t what I’ve been working toward the whole time, but sort of in the same vein it is another step in this journey and one that is sort of about the next one right now. That’s really exciting and that’s fun.”
Luck hasn’t played since the end of the 2016 season, and has taken a patient approach after last year’s setback, taking days off in camp to mirror a regular season schedule. But that doesn’t mean he’s not ready to play Thursday against the Seahawks, and willing to admit he’s enjoying the process more now.
“I probably struggle hiding how I feel at times Bryan Little Jersey ,” he said. “Whether that’s a positive or negative thing, whatever. I think I’m happier with myself. The crux of the matter [is that] I think that really allows me to enjoy football and it does feel like a game to me instead of a job or a profession. I don’t want to ever lose that feeling. I sort of get it when you hear guys in their late 30s and 40s, and they’re talking about it’s like playing a kid’s game. I think I semi-understand what they feel in their hearts now.”
That’s the kind of perspective one earns when he thinks everything is being taken away from him.
When Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell played the “fake news” card earlier this week in response to a report that he has told teammates he’ll show up and sign his franchise tender on Monday, Bell opted to keep his real plans to himself. And so, with 10 days until the Steelers travel to Cleveland for the first game of the regular season, Bell remains unsigned and unprepared and there’s a lingering sense of uncertainty as to when he’ll grab a helmet and get to work.
Bell’s agent already has said publicly that, “barring something exceptional Niklas Hjalmarsson Jersey ,” Bell will arrive the week before Week One. So whether it’s Monday or Sunday or Saturday or Friday, Bell’s agent already has created the impression that Bell’s return is imminent. So when Bell shouts “fake news!” in response to a suggestion that Monday is the day, it seems odd that we wouldn’t finish the thought.
But Bell, for whatever reason, chooses to maintain a mystery regarding his status, for reasons neither obvious nor apparent. The Steelers won’t give him a long-term deal to get him to show up because they can’t; that door slammed against the frame on July 16. In theory, the Steelers could offer him more money on a one-year deal. At this point Sidney Crosby Jersey , though, why would they? The time to use extra cash or other terms on a one-year offer to lure him to Latrobe has come and gone.
And given Bell’s agent’s on-the-record comments about when Bell likely will arrive (followed by no on- or off-the-record claims to the contrary), it’s hard to sell anyone on the idea that Bell actually is considering staying away and skipping out on weekly checks in excess of 5,000.
So there’s currently every reason to think Bell will be back soon. And there’s currently no reason for Bell to quibble with reports regarding when he’ll be back, unless he truly intends to return Monday but genuinely believes he has said nothing to any teammates that would give away his plan. Which would make the news technically fake but ultimately true.
Through it all, the Steelers have the power to give Bell and everyone else a late-summer surprise, by ripping the one-year contract offer away just as Bell is poised to put a pen to it. That would be the ultimate boss/prick move Womens Will Butcher Jersey , depending on one’s perspective. There’s still no reason to think the Steelers would do it, in part because they’re keeping their cards a lot closer to the vest on this one than Bell.
Which means that it would still be wise to keep one eye open on the possibility that the Steelers will decide to save .54 million, to proceed with James Conner as the lead tailback, and to thrust Bell into the open market at a time when rosters are set, budgets are exhausted, and cap money may be scarce.Cleveland Browns Elite Jerseys
