Actually, what I recall seeing online was that a torn rotator cuff is what sidelined him in NY. So I guess the good news is that his latest injury wasn't to the same leg as the other three. But a LT who can't use his left foot to match the first step of the NFLs best pass rushers is pretty much useless. And he wouldn't be much better at RT; it's not like the top pass rushers are REQUIRED to line up on the left, and frequently come from anywhere and everywhere out of a 3-4.
If Clady wants to try salvaging his career as a pure power run blocker, his best bet would probably be moving inside; even that may be a stretch with a bum shoulder.
I stand corrected. Since I am not a Jets fan (thank God! I HATE the "J-E-S-T, Jest, Jest, Jest!"), I had no idea that it wasn't the same left leg he always hurts. Torn rotator cuff, eh? Well, that's a change but it all amounts to the same thing: IR. That dude has made more money while he was on IR than I will in my entire lifetime - i.e. over $40 M.
That's not bad money for hanging out each day with doctors and physical therapists!
