Limas Sweed Has Torn Achilles

Limas Sweed had surgery today on a torn Achilles, suffered over the weekend. He's likely out for the entire season, although I suspect he'll end up on PUP to start the campaign.

I dunno - if I were another team I'd take a punt on Limas. He obviously hasn't impressed the Steelers, but the dude used to have some talent...

Wouldn't the appropriate metaphor be to attempt a long field goal, rather than punting?

(Yes I know it's an expression.)

Nah, field goals can end in points.

He never impressed me as a pro prospect. I watched a lot of Texas football, particularly at the time, and I disagreed with his first-round grade. He always seemed like one of those I'm-a-better-athlete-than-you types who also benefited from the Vince Young Experience. He was just the best receiver on a great team without great receivers.

Of course, this doesn't really impact his productivity on the field.
