Coach Elliot said this two days ago in his post-practice interview. He said it sucked for Mike but he does have that RS year available which is HUGE

Agreed, but he needs to get his weight up, he is very light for an SEC tackle. He should RS this season to get 100% healthy and to get his weight up. We still have Gibson and Zandi for back ups.

We need to our tackles to stay healthy this season. Matulis likely headed for a RS year and Gibson with the knee now. We are an injury or 2 away from a nightmare.

Both Zandi (illness) and Gibson (knee sprain) have missed time this camp. They should be fine but... Matulis and Gibson are our most experienced tackles behind the starters. Missing either will be bad.

I know Matulis is experienced, but he is 266lbs. SEC DE's are the same size and much more athletic than Matulis. Matulis needs to get his weight up, and 100% healthy before he sees the field again. Gibson should be back before the season and should be fine, he is pushing 290 right now. Zandi has made some headlines and is physically much more ready than Matulis at this point. Matulis has had surgery on both shoulders and continues to have issues, which is not a good sign.

Default Re: Matulis getting his shoulder scoped

In past pressers, Elliott stated that Matulis had almost gotten back to his former playing weight...this is just a scope: Matulis could still return from it this season and play, and Elliott indicated that that was what he would try to do. A reporter brought up the RS option, and Elliott did say that that was still on the table. But it's not a definite at this point...

Yeah, but we have issues with mobility on the line he is a mobile one. Not saying he should start but he would help with match up problems.

Mike Matulis came in a 270, and is now at 266. He is not physically ready at all at 266. DEs are the same size, faster, stronger (assuming he has not done much upper body work due to his shoulder injuries) and more athletic. Matulis needs to get 100% healthy and get his weight/strength up, and that will take some time.

Yep, sounding more and more like it's heading in that direction. Hate it for Mike, but that's still better than giving up playing, which at one point it was thought he'd have to. Hopefully he comes back 100% and also in better physical conditioning: this red-shirt may turn out to be a blessing for him to finally get his body fully healed...

Now our other reserve OL need to step up. We may have to see another true freshman forfeit his red-shirt, which would suck....

Elliot didn't think the scoping would be a big deal. He'll probably RS this season and then come back next year all healed up.

Anyone think this could be career ending? I thought I heard last year he might be done with football because of all the shoulder injuries? Hopefully he can redshirt, get healthy and come back better than ever in 2014.
