    Sounds like he's backtracking because his initial report was probably hearsay and/or BS.

    I don't think it's false info..the injury sustained was brutal and in a bad location for an olineman..I'm concerned I know that..I saw the injury/location I saw the scar..

    I saw the scar, and it opened up my eyes, and I am happy now...

    Sorry made me think of that song. Haha

    I'm glad that its not a short term issue. The question though, is would NFL teams really let a guy drop in the draft for something that wasn't going to prop up for 8-10 years? If you get that long out of a player, you've done great.

    A bad injury doesn't equate to an arthritic condition, though.

    Dolphins brass are so pissed at Jason Cole for his hack reporting.

    In my mind, Stephen Ross is already ordering his clone to be made. Harvey Fialkov lives another year!

    If teams truly thought that the ankle would be a problem only 8-10 years down the road, then, IMO, they are lying out their arses that it was the reason he dropped so many spots. very few if any of these GM's / coaches will still be in place with the same team 8-10 years from now, let alone (like you said) worry whether the 3rd contract is going to be there or not. These teams panicked about the photo and are now using this as a more valid excuse.

    8-10 years down the line! Ha! Good one. Ok, check back with us in a decade to see how things are going. Woo!

    He's totally walking back his previous report. He had two "sources" telling him that the ankle was worse than Myles Jack's knee, and one source that disagreed but admitted it's an issue. Now he's talking about a decade down the road? Please. He's walking it back.

    The Dolphins have said both privately and publicly that there were no concerns prior to the draft about tackle Laremy Tunsil’s ankle. There also were no private or public concerns about Tunsil’s ankle among league insiders before the draft.
    Per a source with knowledge of the situation, no issues were raised directly or indirectly about Tunsil’s ankle in the weeks and months before the draft. At a time when every inch of every player’s body and background is poked and prodded, if there was a problem with Tunsil’s ankle, somebody would have said something to Tunsil or those who represent his interests before the draft. That simply didn’t happen.
    It’s possibly happening now, as pointed out last night, because one or more teams who passed on Tunsil are now having regrets about the decision. On one hand, the Dolphins may have been picking at the spot in round one (No. 13) where the need for a left tackle intersected with the availability of sufficient time to process the gas-mask-and-bong-video that emerged not long before the draft. On the other hand, the teams that passed on Tunsil could have quickly come to the conclusion that plenty of guys smoke weed, and that video evidence of Tunsil doing it shouldn’t matter.
    So if Tunsil becomes a great player, those who passed on him will need to be able to point to something more tangible than a cloud of smoke as the reason for not taking him. And now those seeds have been planted, with the news that Tunsil has a pre-arthritic condition in his ankle.
    Even if he doesn’t.

    The Giants regret it. Jerry Reese is on the hot seat now! He was willing to take Conklin #10, but passed on Tunsil why? Not the video, you say?

    He also had an offer from the Jets to move down 10 spots and gain their 2nd rounder. The jets admitted they were going after Tunsil...they may very well regret not offering more, especially knowing we landed him.

    one things certain. The Jets were less concerned with the ankle or bong video than Miami was.

    Okay two things are certain. With #8 miami got Maxwell,Alonso,&Tunsil....with #10 NYG got Apple.

    its more susceptible..

    I believe CK's right in this case, these are GM's that are trying to cover their *** because they panicked on the site of a gas mask..lol.

    we win because of some serious ignorance..

    however, the injury still worries me because of the location and the job requirements.

    I'm more concerned about knee issues than ankle issues. Ankle injuries are at worst lingering issues, whereas knee injuries shut down seasons and careers.

    FinSane was speaking in general. Great point about ankle vs knee issues. Supposedly Cole's source claimed Tunsils ankle was more serious than Myles Jack's knee.... That's ludicrous.
