    More great afflete news from Rotoworld:



    [​IMG]

    Laurence Maroney was arrested late Monday night and is being held on unlawful weapons charges and drug charges.
    <div ="s_pNewsTextMain">
    There are few details available at this time, but we know that Maroney
    was in a car with three other men when the police pulled them over.
    Maroney's rookie contract expires this offseason, and he's not off to a
    good start if he's intending to catch on somewhere else with hopes of
    getting real playing time. We'll update this story as more facts become
    available.

    China doll Thomas suffers yet another bad injury. This should be good news for Eric Decker, but of course the Broncos still have the great Jabbar Gaffney [​IMG]to go along with Brandon Lloyd, who only took eight years to develop.

    Vic Lombardi of CBS 4 in Denver reports Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas suffered a torn Achilles' tendon while working out in Georgia. Lombardi spoke with one of Thomas' teammates who confirmed the report. It's not yet known whether the Achilles is partially or fully torn. Either way, his status for the start of the season is now in doubt. While Thomas is a monster talent, he's been beset by foot and ankle injuries ever since he broke a bone while training last February. It may be too early to write Thomas off as an injury-prone bust, but the history on skill position players returning from Achilles tears is bleak at best. Thomas is set up for a second straight lost season. Brandon Lloyd is locked in as the No. 1 receiver for 2011, and Jabar Gaffney is now more likely to stick around.

    It really looks bad for Mary Thomas now:

    According to a recent study published in Foot &amp; Ankle Specialist, nearly 36 percent of NFL players who suffered a complete Achilles tendon rupture never played in the league again. "Those who did return were never able to meet their pre-injury levels of performance," the study also determined. Significant progress has been made in Achilles procedures and rehab, so the outlook for Demaryius Thomas isn't as grim as it would have been 15-20 years ago. On the other hand, while defensive players such as Takeo Spikes and Greg Ellis have been modest success stories of late, running backs and receivers haven't fared as well. We can't write a talented 23-year-old off, but it's hard to like his chances of staying healthy in 2012 and beyond.

    Another example of the charmed life of black affletes and their "associates" when it comes to police. I wonder how well the defense of "I threw the knife by accident" works when average White people are involved:


    <DIV =re>


    Broncos DE/OLB Jason Hunter, who was struck by a kitchen knife in April, is doing "well," according to his agent. Hunter needed several stitches in his left upper chest after the knife was thrown at him by his girlfriend, but it appears he'll be fine for camp. Police have ruled that that the knife was hurled "on accident" and Hunter's girlfriend will not be charged. Hunter had 60 tackles and three sacks last season for the Broncos.

    In track and field this is near death sentence. I recall Donovan Bailey getting this and never breaking 10 seconds again. I think Dan Marino had this too and he looked like a bear with a broken leg when he moved in the pocket after his surgery. Edited by: white is right
