Jared DeVries 'Disappointed' With Injury Situation

Any player who has his season ended is going to be upset with being placed on injured reserve. It's only natural for any athlete to be crushed when an injury forces him to miss an entire season. When that player is missing his second consecutive season because of an injury, emotions will be running high, which is why these comments from Jared DeVries aren't surprising.

"I'm extremely disappointed. I'm disappointed about the whole injury," said DeVries, who has missed virtually all of training camp with cartilage damage in his left knee.

"The knee has endured 11 NFL seasons, so it wasn't in great shape, but I still felt like I could play," DeVries told The News on Friday. "It's sad because Detroit is going to have a good team this year, especially the defensive line, and I wanted to be a part of that."

This latest injury has people speculating about whether or not DeVries will ever play again. While it seems a little rash to suddenly think DeVries is done because of this surgery, it's certainly a possibility, although he is not thinking about ending his career just yet.

"I'm not even sure at this point," he said. "It's a decision myself and my family will have to make."

I hope DeVries can work his way back, but I can't even imagine how tough it must be mentally after he already had to do that this past year. All I can say is good luck to DeVries, because the road back a second time is going to be very tough both physically and mentally.
