Hatcher excited to return to practice

Jason Hatcher ‘excited’ to return to practice field
BY MIKE JONES
August 9 at 7:05 pm

Excerpts:

RICHMOND — Washington Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher joined his teammates on the practice field on Saturday after spending the first two weeks of training camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list as he recovered from knee surgery.

-snip-

Because of the expectations set for him, Hatcher wrestled with whether or not to have surgery after experiencing problems with his knee during the offseason program.

He ultimately decided that rather than try to baby the knee off and on throughout the season, he would have the arthroscopic surgery so he could enter the season without lingering soreness or swelling.

“As a new guy who had just gotten signed, it was kind of a big deal,” he said discussing the dilemma he faced. “You, being a human, you think, ‘I just got here, and what will my teammates think? What will the GM, and owner think?’ It was a big thing and decision to make, but I’m glad I did it.

I'm glad he did it, too. Those two weeks in camp aren't going to hold him back as much as a nagging injury all year would have. Still a risky investment by the team, but so far so good I think.

Absolutely.

He just looks hungry to get back out there too...that's the kind of attitude we need; something contagious.

Too bad he didn't have it a little earlier.

Not at all, I was just saying it would have been nice if he was at this point in his recovery a couple of weeks ago.

I would agree with you if we were looking for him to generate a pass rush on his own. But with Rak and Kerrigan and now Murphy and other pass rushers, I am pretty confident this is going to work out. We need to bring heat from every direction and any direction.

Why? He's a seasoned, quality DE. I doubt that 2 weeks makes any difference in the quality of his work...

Not the quality of his work, the quality of his healing.

Somehow, I continue to NOT be distressed that this player... And this d-line is somehow harmed by this 2 week delay. I don't dispute that there is "benefit". I simply doubt that it's significant, ESPECIALLY since we get a "full speed" Hatcher as a result.

But two more weeks of healing would only be beneficial.

Are you saying that he should sit another two weeks? :hmm:
