Early in preseason Andrews said the news he got from his doctor about his injury was "tear jerking." He asked people to "pray for him." This set off a firestorm of fans freaking out, websites running sensational "Is Andrews injury career ending?," local papers trying to get diagnosis from doctors who'd never examined the player, and of course Ron Jaworski telling everyone he had inside info that the injury was indeed career threatening. Turns out he was just winding up the fans and media.
"I knew I was going to [be ready]. I just kind of wanted to get you guys all riled up because I knew what kind of flare it would put up."
Nice. Yesterday, Andrews practiced and said he's feeling good.
"I'm excited about Sunday," Andrews said. "I don't know if Coach [Andy] Reid allows me to give any percentages, but I'll say I'm excited about where I'm at."
LJ Smith didn't seem to worry about whether the coach wants guys to give percentages...
Frankly, I don't see the need to rush LJ back. Celek had a nice preseason and Schobel is a capable fill in, it's more important to get LJ to 100% than it is to start him over those guys.
On a final note, Andrews one particular date circled on his calender...
