It is a bummer of a news day to read that the Falcons budding young WR Harry Douglas is out for the year with a torn ACL. I know it is not the same thing, but I watched my wife go through the whole “replace an ACL” thing a year and a half ago; not a pretty picture. According to ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas
The news Thursday morning that wide receiver Harry Douglas is out for the season is devastating. It comes as Roddy White’s contract holdout has no apparent end in sight. The Falcons had big plans for Douglas.
He was working with the first team in White’s absence. Even if White returned, Douglas was going to be no worse than a very active third receiver. Now, the Falcons don’t really have a first or third receiver.
I guess Roddy has a little more contract leverage. Hope they get him into camp soon, and best wishes to Harry on a speedy recovery.
