Report: Steelers tackle Jerald Hawkins sustained torn quadriceps
When Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Jerald Hawkins went down in practice early on Wednesday, it appeared as though he’d sustained a non-contact knee injury.
According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com, Hawkins injury is actually a torn quadriceps muscle.
Hawkins collapsed on the field and yelped upon going to the ground. He had to be helped off the field by members of the team’s training staff.
Without a job in football in 2015, Halapio was training in Florida with Mike Alstott, the former Buccaneers’ fullback, when a piece of advice hit home.
He’s like ‘If it’s not working for you at guard you ever thought about snapping the ball?,’ Halapio recalled. I was like, ‘No.’ He was like ‘If you want to play in this league, you got to play more than one position.’ So, I started snapping.
While the Colts remain confident Luck will play this season, the franchise quarterback has not thrown a football since last October. The plan is for Luck to begin throwing a football sometime between June 14 and the start of training camp.
For me, coming off missing the entire year with the neck, I knew I was going to have to play a different kind of way, a different sort of physical state, Manning said. I was looking for things like positive feedback from receivers on whether the ball felt the same coming in and then when you get into the game and you throw a deep out. We played a preseason game and I threw a deep comeback route, and that was a thing to check off the box. You want to do everything for the first time again. You want to get hit; you want to make a tight throw, have a two-minute drive. I wanted to do all those things again.
