Ron Rivera informed reporters on Friday that, once again, American wide receiver, Curtis Samuel will be out of action for the NFL side Washington Football Team, this time for their match in Denver. That'll be the receiver’s sixth absence on the year.
By contrast, Samuel has tallied only four receptions.
Despite Curtis Samuel’s inability to recover from a groin injury that dates back to late May, Nicknamed Riverboat Ron, the Washington head coach went on to explain in his final presser of the week that the receiver is not a candidate to land on injured reserve at the moment.
Rivera said via www.mycasinoadviser.com, "If you put him on I.R., you lose him for the rest of the year, we're hoping that giving him a little bit of time, work a little bit more on his conditioning, we'll be able to have him down the stretch."
Asking the head coach questions regarding Curtis Samuel has turned into a tradition, and last week, Rivera identified the receiver’s training camp stint on the Coronavirus list as a key hiccup in his recuperation. According to the coach, being apart from the training staff for over 10 days at the end of summer was vital.
This time around, Curtis Samuel's usage in Week 4 at Atlanta — the only contest that he really featured in for the Burgundy and Gold — was raised by Rivera as another major harmful factor.
Rivera explained, "Unfortunately, that set him back a little bit more, because of that, we've had to be really careful. As I said, this stretch run coming after the bye, we'd like to have him for that."
Injuries to Cam Sims and Dyami Brown late in the Falcons game forced Curtis Samuel to take a little more snaps than he was slated for, for those who can’t remember, and those additional reps were extremely costly.
So, Washington Football Team will face off against the Broncos with Terry McLaurin and a number of fine but not overly helpful position players such as Sims, Dax Milne, and Adam Humphries. Meanwhile, Curtis Samuel will take the weekend off ahead of the club’s bye. Maybe that'll be the layoff he requires to finally return?
Well, with how endless the receiver’s rehab has been so far, it's difficult to be optimistic about that. It appears Samuel is having a tough time himself maintaining the right outlook, also.
Rivera said via real money online slots, "He is frustrated as anybody."
Undoubtedly, he is not alone in that frustration.
Each season in the NFL, there are 3 categories of teams. The Contenders for Super Bowl, The Tank Nation, and the Going Nowheres. Deservedly, the Denver Broncos are in the middle category, clearly, very talented and well-coached team defensively to be in full tank mode, but not talented or well-coached enough on offense role to be in contention for the Super Bowl contention.
The Washington Football Team came into the season believing, and with many others equally believing, they might probably be on the cusp of coming into the ranks of teams contending for the Super Bowl. At least, they have faith they could set themselves up to make that step next campaign.
