LaRon Landry deletes tweet about Redskins medical staff

It doesn’t sound like the Redskins are going to have safety LaRon Landry in the lineup when they face the Giants on Sunday.

He probably shouldn’t expect any hugs from the team’s medical staff either.

Landry took to Twitter on Tuesday with a message indicating that his injured hamstring still isn’t healthy enough for him to get back on the field. He also seemed to point a finger at the team for slowing his recovery and forcing him to miss the season opener.

“Uuhhh oo it ain’t my fault…blame the genius circus staff for the rush. wouldve been there 2wks ago. Im sry but saga cont”

Landry deleted the tweet a short time later, but it lives on thanks to Rick Maese of the Washington Post. As Maese’s colleague Mike Jones points out, it isn’t the first tweet to combine talk of hamstring setbacks and team involvement to come from Landry’s account recently. He had even harsher words on Saturday for the guys giving him treatment.

“Dont u hate when u absolutely know something 200% and dumb a$$ mofos still do the opposite of what u tell them!!! Set backs wtf!!!”

Such poetry doesn’t win many admirers in the trainer’s room, but at least Landry (or someone close to him) realized it isn’t the best idea to create public discord.

The Redskins wouldn’t comment on Landry’s comments beyond saying that Mike Shanahan would address Landry’s condition when he speaks to the media on Wednesday. It would be surprising to hear the coach say something that makes Landry’s appearance on the field more likely. He missed the last two preseason games with his strained hamstring and an Achilles injury kept him out of the early part of the preaseason, all of which means Landry hasn’t spent enough time on the field to feel confident about his ability to make it through a game.

    LaRon, prepare to be reacquainted with the beady-eyed stare…

    Too bad, we could sure use him.

    “The saga cont.”

    Oh, it’s a saga now? I’m glad to see he has added “d-bag” , and “self- importance” to his “overrated” resume….

    It might help if he hadn’t built his body into a cartoon chariacture of body builder and spent more time on preparing it for playing football.

    He was starting to look like he might fulfil his potential last year, the staff having removed much need for him to think, yet it wasn’t a massive surprise that he ended up on IR so soon.

    Laron Landry is a stud, the Redskins D will definately miss his him on Sunday

  7. scudbot says: Sep 7, 2011 8:46 AM

    Unsurprising. Redskins=Chaos. Hail To The Bedlam.

  8. psychoraider904 says: Sep 7, 2011 8:46 AM

    This is a perfect example why they should have locked out these clowns for the year when they had the chance. These guys make millions and don’t appreciate sh*t. I think they’d have a whole new outlook if they had to go a full year without a paycheck.

  9. gocaps8 says: Sep 7, 2011 8:53 AM

    STFU, Landry. You can’t play FS and can’t stay healthy when playing in the box.

    He’s been nothing but hype and bluster. Prove your worth on the field, not on Twitter. Talk (and tweets) are cheap.

    Another NFL player looking like a fool while using Twitter?

    Tiki is flabbergasted.

  11. riverhorsey says: Sep 7, 2011 9:03 AM

    Landry gives new meaning to professional. Hard to believe they pay some of these jackasses to play.

  12. luckynumberlucas says: Sep 7, 2011 9:03 AM

    Oh, image that secondary with Landry, Hall and Sean Taylor.

    Scary.

  13. luckynumberlucas says: Sep 7, 2011 9:03 AM

    *imagine

    Yea, like Leron is going to be able to make a difference on a team like the Redskins.

    Can’t stay healthy? The guy has missed 7 games in 4 years in the league. And he was playing at a pro bowl level before being hurt last year.

    Stick to hockey.

    He is definitely blustery and can be obnoxious, but he’s the Skins best player in the secondary and they WILL miss him when he is out.

    Man I sure hope Reed Doughty is ready. But he may be more prepared than landry since he hasn’t stepped foot on the field. I dunno how that would turn out either.

  17. drexelvol says: Sep 7, 2011 9:48 AM

    I didn’t understand a word that fool said.

  18. baddegg says: Sep 7, 2011 10:29 AM

    Wait until he has to pass the conditioning test to come back to play…

  19. baddegg says: Sep 7, 2011 10:30 AM

    Landry is a star, but Doughty is an adequate replacement, IMO. He won’t change the game like Landry, but he will not likely lose it either.

  20. grpatriot says: Sep 7, 2011 10:36 AM

    Shanahan is a control freak…Let’s see if Landry goes all “Haynesworth!”

  21. h8dansnyder says: Sep 7, 2011 10:42 AM

    Take your time recovering. At least now the defense won’t be torched by the long pass.

  22. skinsfan6892 says: Sep 7, 2011 11:04 AM

    Dear Laron,

    Please just shut your mouth. You seem to forget the last time you got to running that mouth of yours. The Redskins/Eagles game? Ring a bell? They shoved those words right down your mouth on the first play of the game. The burn marks are still on the field. So please do us fans a favor….Get well, and play the damn game.

    Thanks,
    Redskins fans

    What a Twit.

  24. millertime30 says: Sep 7, 2011 11:09 AM

    first off, absolutely hate (HATE) the redskins.
    second: it sounds like Mr. Landry is upset because he feels he was rushed back to training camp before his hammy was 100%. If he told the training staff that he didn’t feel prepared to return, and he was activated anyways; then i think he has every right to be upset. even if twitter isn’t the best way to show it.

    go cowboys

  25. wethog66 says: Sep 7, 2011 11:10 AM

    @baddeg

    Doughty can’t lose the game either? Do you even know who Reed Doughty is? Here is a hint, think matador holding a red cape, and an oppossing WR is a bull. Ole!

  26. egls7 says: Sep 7, 2011 11:19 AM

    He tweets like a chick

    Landry has a big mouth, both on the field and off. He’s also not very bright. He gets beaten often in coverage because he’s so intent on making a highlight reel ‘hit’ that he frequently sells out the defensive scheme. He is big, strong, reasonably fast and more than willing to take cheap shots. Sooner or later he will injure a wide receiver badly…unless he’s not on the field.

    I don’t normally wish harm to come to others. I make an exception in Landry’s case. The NFL doesn’t need garbage like him.

    I have patients all the time who absolutely know 200% that they are right, even when their self diagnosis couldn’t be farther from the truth.

  30. dikshuttle says: Sep 7, 2011 1:37 PM

    I have very little respect for Skins’ training staff & doctors. The injuries their players get are more often than not due to training issues and not actual on-the-field damage.

    The facilities were crappy for years, too. I’d love to see them raid Doctors South or something – or cart ‘em in from Bal’mer.

    That being said – Landry is a bonehead. He’s always doing something wrong. He’s part of the old guard and we should shop him once he’s healthy.

    Hail.

    Stick to math, because apparently you can’t read.

    I said he can’t stay healthy when playing in the box. How many seasons has Landry played at SS since Taylor died?

    One. And he couldn’t hold up physically.

    I don’t care if he’s the second coming of Ronnie Lott. He needs to keep his mouth shut and let his play do the talking.

    Right. I’m not juiced, not 26 anymore and not stupid.

    Landry on the other hand, would probably be stupid enough to attack someone for saying that to his face. And he’d lose a lot of the money he’s been stealing from the Redskins.
