I just got word on Twitter that Heath has a torn ACL and MCL. I feel for him, he was our best player the entire year and was a for sure pro bowler. I hate to see his season end like this. Do you guys think he will be able to be ready for the beginning of next season?

I found out like an hour ago and thought to myself ironic that there is a post about Harrison aiming for the knees and sure enough it happens to heath. If it had to happen to him not a better time since the team wont be in the playoffs. I think he will be back in a timely manner. I just cant say what it will do to his performance though and his career for that matter . Peterson has been having an awesome year but then you have mendy who was a bust lets hope its not the second . I guess if he does what the ravens do with all their mutant roid potions he can be back in a couple weeks LOL

This injury here to Heath is one reason you simply dont play Ben this week. Really what is the point of doing so at this stage?? This season is over with and there is absolutely nothing to accomplish by beating the Browns with or without Ben. Why risk injury to him?? Sit him down and get him as healthy as possible for next season because this season at this point and time is over and done with...

Just a question. How comes there was no flag when the LB when after Bens knee? Isnt that a flag for hitting the QB at the knees?

With Bens style of play he will never get calls like the "others"

Brady, manning only... Look at what Mike Vick had to deal with, constantly getting pounded...

Heath has a good 8 months to recuperate his knee. He probably was already banged
up down there anyway from all the low chop tackles he takes. He'll be fine. Rest up brother.

No lie, we have had more than our fare share of injuries this year.

I think you're mischaracterizing what Harrison actually said.

Yeyyy my first replied quote... but uh go head and explain why you think that? Harrison said he has had to change the way he plays the game to avoid fines etc so he said hes aiming low and made reference to blowing up decker from broncos last year....harrison states its not making anything safer... heath goes out gets crushed at the knees, he was clearly pist off about it but hey its legal...i dont see how thats not exactly what harrison was saying? If youre going to fine me for high hits im going low, like the knees
