LeGarrette Blount Something Something Injury

When LeGarrette Blount went down with an injury on Sunday, it looked a little weird. He kind of stumbled and then grabbed his leg, but not like someone who had just hurt his leg. More like a drunk who was trying to hide the fact that he tripped because of his drunkenness by pretending it was his leg. We never saw Blount again and Greg Schiano later said that he was not injured. And now he’s backtracking on that a little.
“LeGarrette could have gone back in the game,” Schiano said. “So let me make that clear. I don’t know if we’re all certain on what’s ailing LeGarrette. He came out of the game and we thought it was his leg. We’re not sure. So we’re just keeping a close eye on him to make sure there’s nothing more serious. I think he’s okay.”
If I had to guess, I’d say Blount lied to everyone and said it was his leg when it was really a concussion or something similar. The only thing that makes me doubt that is when you get concussed, you generally aren’t in your right head enough to lie about it right at that moment. So maybe it wasn’t a real concussion and he just hit his head slightly but was still coherent enough to fake a leg injury. Or not.
Luckily, I don’t have to guess and I honestly don’t give a shit. If it was really serious, I’m pretty sure we would know by now. And if Schiano wants to lie to me about what it really is, that’s fine too. Really. Lie away. If it means next week’s opponent is that much less prepared, I’m perfectly okay reporting false information and stonewalling. I never thought coaches owed the fans detailed explanations of their players’ health in the first place. It always seemed counterproductive. I know it’s supposed to be for the gambling aspect, but it doesn’t really matter. If I have enough riding on the game, I’ll find him and break his legs myself.
