There were reports that John Ross had a bad injury history, but the Bengals did not worry about it too much. If he had a bad injury history and still ran a 4.22 forty, I guess we should not be too worried. John Ross is sick and tired of hearing about his injuries. He is also getting sick of defending his medical history. He told reporters it gets frustrating.
“It gets frustrating because you can play a whole season and injuries could happen several years ago,” Ross told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I don’t feel the need to keep defending myself. Like I was telling the coaches you can get hurt doing anything, so I don’t really feel the pressure to defend myself.”
“I tore the labrum blocking and playing one of the most physical teams in our conference in Stanford,” Ross said. “I don’t think people understand. Some people don’t watch the film so I feel like there’s no need to defend yourself sometimes. Imagine if I was healthy is what I can pitch to people.”
Have you ever had a girlfriend that keeps bringing up an old girlfriend? I bet that is a similar feeling. What do you think, does he have a point? At the end of the day, we will see if he is healthy or not.
