TJ Hammonds

Hope he can stay healthy and we can finally find him a role. More touches…, seems they have talked about this before.

Just got him keep him going. He’s had knee injuries, foot injuries, ankle injuries, hamstring injuries. He’s a player. He just needs to stay on the practice field and be healthy for game time.

I’m curious, does anyone have a link to the video of Hayden’s tackle that caused his injury? Was it a horse collar tackle? Asking because I didn’t get to see the replay and am interested in what others think, thank you.

If you’re talking about the most recent injury, Bielema said that happened in practice a couple of Wednesdays back.

Sorry Matt, I am talking about Hayden’s injury. I’ve been traveling a lot this Fall and “these injuries are coming at me so fast…” :wink:

Thank you Matt.

Oh, I did not read your post carefully enough. Someone said they saw Chase limp off the field after he was hurt. I never saw the replay.

Here is the play. It looks like his ankle might have twisted as he was being brought down from behind, but it is a clean tackle.

Understood. I will look it up later when I have the time and will post it. I do remember it being said that he was tackled from behind and I was curious how close to a horse collar tackle this was and if so, why wasn’t it called. It seems every year that we play Auburn, that we lose a major player due to an illegal or overly aggressive tackle.

Copy that Matt. Thank you for that link and feedback. Greatly appreciated.
