Get well soon DP

Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.

Good luck with rehab Devier.  Tough break.

Strange. It happened on a false start I believe. That's a bummer. He was playing well & had that crazy TD...Get well DP.

That is a pisser.  It was nice to see him start doing well toward the end of the year.  Hopefully he'll be fully rehabed for the start of next season.

That's an awful injury.  My thoughts are with Devier.  Hopefully he can recover from this.  That was a heck of a catch he made, and I think he can be a good weapon for the Texans.  Best wishes.

That's awful. Hope he recovers quickly. That TD catch was pretty impressive.

Damn shame it happened to him. I hope he does all the exercises his therapists give him. I had a knee replaced and the exercises are really important to his recovery. You have to do them so your muscles build up the memory and you don't favor one side over the other. Good luck DeVier.

That dude can not catch a break. NCAA ruled him "worst person in world" (seriously who else gets a 10 game suspension, there are many occurances where players have taken much more and got much less) and now he finally starts to get going in NFL and this. Hopefully he can have an ADP like recovery.

Good luck and best wishes, DeVier, on your recovery & rehab!
