Ruptured Achilles for LenDale White

The injury bug has bitten again in Denver.  In a big way.

Last night, Broncos running back LenDale White left the preseason finale against the Vikings with what appeared to be an ankle injury.  As it turns out, the injury was in the vicinity of his ankle.

As first Tweeted in non-hoax fashion from the bowels of the replacement to the ’68 VW bus, White has torn his Achilles’ tendon.

Per a league source, it’s a full tear.  White is out for the year.

He had been showing promise after joining Denver following injuries to Knowshown Moreno and Correll Buckhalter.  Earlier this year, White had been traded from the Titans to the Seahawks, which reunited him with his college coach, Pete Carroll.  But Carroll cut him just before word broke of a four-game suspension imposed by the league.

The Broncos could bring back running back Justin Fargas, whom they released upon reducing the roster from 80 to 75.

    He’d still be better than Moreno even with the tear

    The Broncos just can’t get a break with their runningbacks and injuries.

    Douche McDaniel is getting a karmic kick in the ass and I’m loving every bit of it.
    Whether this guy is a good coach or not,there is just something pedophilically creepy and un-nerving about him.
    Don’t like him,can’t put my finger on it.
    Oh yeah,and I can’t stand the Broncos.
    Paging Derrick Ward..

    Wow that’s unfortunate.

    Florio, you really protest too much on this Mike Wise hoax subject. Your website used to publish hoaxes every April Fool’s Day (pretty sure you have finally stopped), showing that intentionally spreading misinformation doesn’t bother you all that much. Your hoaxes were in the name of humor (and they weren’t very funny). Wise’s hoax was in the name of exposing the hearsay nature of contemporary media. He hit closer to his mark than you ever did.

    My god Florio, get over it dude!! You printed something that wasn’t untrue because you got bad information from someone who was just trying to prove that the media will print anything, and you’ve proven that continually!!!!

  17. AzHawk says: Sep 3, 2010 1:13 PM

    Ruptured Achilles is no joke…..happened to me last year and im still not running.
    Not a big fan of White but wouldnt wish that on anyone.

  18. tdawg69 says: Sep 3, 2010 1:14 PM

    Don’t ever diss the Buckeye’s again, Lendale! Next time, it will be a broken leg!

  19. hemry27 says: Sep 3, 2010 1:14 PM

    Ruptured appetite too. If he can’t train…he’ll gain at least 35lbs.
    Agreed…step on the Terrible towel again, fat-boy.

  24. Reginald says: Sep 3, 2010 1:24 PM

    more meaningful injuries from meaningless games.
    The preseason is absolutely retarded.

    What’s the different between a ruptured achilles and a torn achilles?

    Try taking a remedial english course.

  27. Wrathchild says: Sep 3, 2010 1:35 PM

    Ooof. Ruptured Achilles for a RB could spell the end of his career.

  28. Really? says: Sep 3, 2010 1:35 PM

    Florio, nobody cared about Mike Wise. Nobody. Repeat… Nobody.
    One more time… Nobody.
    Enough already.

    “Florio, you really protest too much on this Mike Wise hoax subject. ”
    East Bay, my guess is that Florio is aware that Mike Wise is privately telling industry insiders that Florio is a complete hypocrite who regularly fabricates stories on this website. We all know that practically every post has some fabricated innuendo about some player or team that is often proven to be false. The difference is that NBC is not going to suspend or fire Florio because this is his original website. But that doesn’t keep those in the media from laughing about Florio’s fixation on Wise.

    Dear Steelers Fans: If “karma” for stepping on a terrible towel is a ruptured achilles, what’s the “karma” punishment for raping two girls?
    Thanks in advance.

  31. Canetic says: Sep 3, 2010 2:03 PM

    At least they have somewhere to play Tebow now.

    Pretty interchangable terms.
    She said a rupture and a tear are the same thing as long as its a complete tear/rupture.
    She said you can have partial tears but she had NEVER seen one.(shes been a doc for like 25 years)

  35. realitypolice says: Sep 3, 2010 2:29 PM

    When told that being put on IR meant he got his full salary for the year without having to play in any games, White reportedly said “Damn! If I’d have known that, I would have ruptured the damn thing 3 weeks ago!”.

  36. QuizGuy66 says: Sep 3, 2010 2:32 PM

    Thanks AzHawk – guess rupture sounds much more dramatic!

    Sign Derrick Ward,NOW!!!!!

  38. DallasNiner says: Sep 3, 2010 2:40 PM

    Well in the case of Lendale, that’s pretty much the end of his career.

  39. petro says: Sep 3, 2010 3:11 PM

    @ csloan99 – So right on.
    Not sure if it’s that wretched Iron City beer that makes them stupid but Stiller fans really are something. I know, I know, you have 6 rings but if I had to suffer the indiginity of growing up in the ‘Burg, I’d hand my hat on that too.

  40. Tenntuxx says: Sep 3, 2010 3:43 PM

    Ouch…
    Other RB’s…might have a chance…
    Lendale…DONE!
