What is the status on Quanterus Smith's knee?

He has been quoted in several places (most recently in today's Denver Post) that his knee will be ready by training camp. I doubt it.

Looking at the possible scenarios:
1) his knee really is good to go by training camp
I'll give this a 25% chance. Maybe the pre-draft physical was very positive.
2) his knee is ready by week 1 of the regular season
Seems more likely. A 50% chance of happening.
3) his knee needs longer to rehab or tweaks his injury during practice, Goes on PUP for 6 weeks.
I'll guess 25%. Possible but I hope it doesn't happen.

At this point, Shaun Phillips seems certain to be the designated pass rusher. Quanterus Smith will likely be brought along slowly.

Highlights video (Elvis Who?):

By the way, the coaches will have to learn 7 unusual first names with this crop of rookies -- Sylvester, Montee, Kayvon, Quanterus, Tavarres, Vinston, and Zac. No Joes or Bills this year.

EDIT: Changed IR to PUP.


Man that video makes him look all-pro. If he can transition to the NFL well, I will be a very happy person.

I apologize to Paul Mac. Seems he was right after all. There is a conflict in reports. I read elsewhere Q had his surgery mid December. But in the Post it says it was done November 24th. Don't know which is correct.

Whatever the case, it seems he will be ready to go full force at the start of training camp as predicted by Paul. Kudos. I hope he is able to make an impact right away. No way we are going to be able to stash him on the PS.

Team might still put him on the PUP as a way to keep him on the team and in case there is an injury at the position, we would have a ready made replacement mid season. Whatever the case, this is good news. Cheers.

He will most likely spend the first few weeks watching and learning. If he can come along slowly and give the pass rush a boost later in the season and playoffs, that would be ideal. That being said, his impact year one shouldn't be substantial. I don't see him getting much playing time unless injuries strike.

As I've said many times ACL injuries aren't all that anymore. Q will run with the seconds though. He's still behind Shaun Phillips.

You can't base that on a few freak cases.

ACL injuries remain all "that", as they are serious traumas. APs recovery is not the baseline for recovery. The man is a genetic marvel. That certainly doesnt apply to every player and most certainly isn't a given for Q. If he really applies himself to his rehabilitation, there's no reason why he can't reach his potential. A significant-enough if to be justifiably-concerned though.

Unless, of course. you're an orthopaedic surgeon with an ACL specialism, but even then I'd beg to differ. Regardless of the facilities available to these athletes, it remains a serious condition.

Exactly. For every Adrian Peterson there is a Domonique Foxworth or Steve Smith (ex Giants one) who doesn't get over an ACL.
