Acc'd to Rotoworld the MRI on Deuce's knee was negative and he could/would have played had it not been fifty-thousand to three. Any more updates please post here.

Sincerely,

A very disappointed Deuce owner who thinks Haslett is legally mentally handicapped and Brooks shouldn't be starting for most Pop Warner teams.

I think that Brooks just can't do much without Horn, his security blanket.I handcuffed Antowain when I drafted Deuce. I recommend others do the same as he is a decent backup.

It sounds like Deuce was a precautionary sit, but maybe I'm just hoping for the best.

This is all we have so far:

GREEN BAY, WIS. - Saints running back Deuce McAllister’s injury added to the insult of Sunday’s embarrassing 52-3 loss to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

McAllister limped off the field with approximately seven minutes remaining in the third quarter after twisting his right knee at the end of a screen pass.

X-rays taken at the stadium were negative and an MRI is scheduled Monday in San Antonio.

“I’ll be all right,’’ said McAllister, who rushed 11 times for 36 yards. “My foot got caught in the ground and I felt something in my knee. If it had been a closer game I think I could have put a brace on it and gone out and played.

“If I had to play a game tomorrow I’d probably be questionable. But I plan to play Sunday unless it’s something worse than it already is.’’

Actually, Rotoworld is reporting that the X-Rays taken yesterday were negative. MRI to be performed today. Anxiously awaiting the reults.

If things continue like this for the remainder of the season, I think that Aaron Brooks will be playing for another team next year. I have been a quick defender of the guy for a few years now but I find myself thinking "it's time". his play is the surest barometer of a saints performance i've seen.

I feel bad for the guy - he's been a great producer and soldier amid a lost team. And this will likely impact his status for next year.

Not to rub salt in the wound, but I said this last night that his quote made me concerned:

“I’ll be all right,’’ said McAllister, who rushed 11 times for 36 yards. “My foot got caught in the ground and I felt something in my knee. If it had been a closer game I think I could have put a brace on it and gone out and played.

KFFL:Saints | McAllister Likely Out for the YearMon, 10 Oct 2005 09:50:40 -0700Jay Glazer, of FOXSports.com, reports New Orleans Saints RB Deuce McAllister (knee) had an initial test on his injured knee, which showed a torn ACL. He will have a second opinion before deciding definitely on the season-ending surgery. All indications are that the Saints will have to continue without him for the remainder of the year.

 
Antwan Smith and Stecker as the change of pace/3rd down back is the way i see it.Stecker might even be the more valuable back, especially in PPR leagues because the Saints will be playing from behind just about the rest of the season. I don't see A. Smith getting many carries in 2nd half of games.Tough break for the Saints and for Deuce owners.

:wall: :wall: In a keeper league where we keep 3 players, but only 1 player from each position I kept the following players:

Culpepper :X

Andre Johnson :X :X

and Deuce McAllister :cry:

Guess it's time to play for the :toilet: bowl and hope for better luck next season. :(

Sooo, RW back to NO? 6th rndr a fair/reasonable price?
I would think Bennett would be a better possibility.
I'm not so sure -- remember the talk prior to the season had NO changing the strategy to pound the ball repeatedly. That is not Bennett's MO -- and RW happens to now be done with his suspension. With the Dolphins lacking future pix, a 5th/6th rndr may prove to be reasonable.

Not going to happen. No way Ricky comes back to New Orleans, no way!

I wasn't making a prediction -- just speculating about the feasibility.Is there a specific reason why there's no way this could happen?

Would the owner go with the current backups without considering RW?

Not that it's a bad idea, but he's no better than their backups. I don't see New Orleans going anywhere this year do you?You'd think the ownership of the Saints will think the same thing and I think they'll sit tight with what they have and their draft picks and rebuild that team.

Matt Leinert is a good start. Aaron Brooks although a decent fantasy Qb over the last several years is an absolute joke as a team leader. I've never seen a guy laugh and smile so much after mistakes he's made or when his team is losing.

To me, I don't want a guy who's suicidal if they're losing or he's not playing well, but I don't want a guy who's telling jokes or talking about what restaurant everyone's meeting at after the game either.

Talk about "dodging a bullet", although some degree of bad kharma is likely to follow -- I accepted a trade this past Tuesday of essentially getting Julious Jones and Steve Smith for Deuce and Darrell Jackson (who was simply "questionable with a bone bruise" at that time).Oh well, win some, lose some

I can't imagine anybody in the league trading for Ricky, really I beleive that.No one is going to give up anything for a quitter and if they do they deserve to be laughed at. Saying that I would not be surprised to see the Saints go after him.

They are one of the worst franchies in football and a complete joke, the only question I have for them is who are they going to draft in the upcoming draft because I'm sure it will be a top 10 or even top 5 pick.

Per Fox news, KFFL, & Sirius its a torn or partially torn ACL. DM is looking for a second opinion.

The New Orleans Saints nightmarish season has turned even worse.

FOXSports.com has learned that the initial test on Pro Bowl RB Deuce McAllister has shown a torn ACL, meaning McAlister will miss the rest of this season.

McAllister limped off the field with approximately seven minutes remaining in the third quarter of Sunday's horrific 52-3 loss to Green Bay after twisting his right knee at the end of a screen pass. Initial x-rays were negative but the team didn't make a final prognosis until further examination today.

The Saints will get McAllister a second opinion before deciding on definitive season-ending surgery but all indications are that the injury will need to be repaired surgically.

The Saints have endured one of the most painful seasons in league history. Their organization has been reduced to a constant traveling team without a true home stadium due to Hurricane Katrina. Their performance has been greatly affected by the tragedy, and the loss of their best player certainly cannot help measures.

McAllister has rushed for 1,000 yards or more in each of the last three seasons, and had 1,641 rushing yards in 2003. Antowain Smith and Aaron Stecker are listed behind McAllister on the Saints' depth chart at running back. Smith had 12 carries for 36 yards in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

Poor Saints. Think they'll even bother making a trade?
For what?? I just don't see the need. Smith is serviceable, they're not going anywhere and they have Stecker for different situations as well.I mean, is Michael Bennett going to bring them a championship..........do we even know if he'll make the team any better? I wouldn't make a move. I'd tell the entire team that this team will reevaluate every single player on it at the end of the season. That for those that give up or don't put in the kind of effort a professional should will not have a job on this team next year, and those that do will be rewarded with a job the following year.

I'd bench Brooks for good. In fact, I'd trade him to the Jets or somewhere else that needs a QB for a 2nd round pick and take Matt Leinert and use some other picks for D.

Maybe Aaron Brooks will make a better RB than a QB. Start Bouman and put Brooks in the backfield. 32 rushing yards yesterday. :boxing:

:confused: You're confusing me.

 
and my season is over :ptts:
No offense, but the way the entire Saints team looked yesterday, even with a healthy Deuce if this ends your season, you were on life support anyway.He wasn't going to win anything for you. We're you're playing catchup like the Saints were and will be, rushing yardage will not be piling up.

As mentioned, given the typical recovery period, this has unfortunate longer term implications for keeper/dynasty owners.While some may be jumping up and down, I feel for the guy. Shows once again that any player is one knee twist from having their career altered.

My gut says Stecker is a better pick up than Antowain. Smith has too much mileage, and I just can't see him being productive. Stecker could be serviceable, especially in ppr leagues.

Thanks for pointing this out and giving me the chance to clarify Chaz. I wouldn't make a move at RB, they're serviceable and the team is going nowhere.

The move I'm talking about with Brooks is OUT! Meaning they will get something in return for him. If they made a move at RB, they'd be giving something up.

Those two concepts are completely different. With the situation that the Saints are in, I wouldn't be giving anything out for players, but would consider trading Brooks away for let's say a 2nd round pick, which would improve the team for the future. Brooks will never take that team anywhere special.

What makes you think he is worth a 2nd round pick? Don't you think the other teams watch Saints games?
