Good to hear.
Now Courtney needs to hire a nutritionist/chef.
Much of the same from PFT :
Sounds like there isn't a weight issue now and his conditioning is good. Being a rookie last year and just getting established as a pro, give him a break. He's learning how to be a pro and take care of himself. If he balloons up again, then he didn't learn from this year.
It took Suggs more than a couple of years to get to a point where he had his off season conditioning on lock-down.
Training Camp hasn't even started yet, and Upshaw is already almost down to his playing weight from last season.
good to hear he isnt 300lbs, still not good to hear he isnt 265 or less. Just think if he didnt balloon up how much easier it would have been to get to that goal weight instead of still needing to shed 10-13lbs more. Hopefully this is the last we hear of this happening. Im not holding my breath on that one though.
I didn't read all the posts but He's on the right track and lost 20 lbs. He's trying.
And who is that #91 causing a fumble in the SB? Yup, he deserves to stay albeit minus a
few pounds. Note ball in pic after he takes the guy's head off. He has those natl championships and a SB ring. Most college players would kill for his career.
He was a steal where Ozzie got him according to this pic.
As someone else said earlier in the thread, we should consider ourselves lucky if this is the worst news we get during the offseason.
What more could be wanted. There was an issue. He explained why the issue was there, acknowledging it and declaring that he would fix it. The coach agreed that it needed to be fixed, but showed confidence that it would.
It has been fixed, within the time frame that it was said to be fixed.
Why can't you just accept that Upshaw is meant to be in the 265-270 range? Not everyone is meant to be built like a 250 speed rusher.
It is good that he took getting in shape seriously after showing up at OTAs a mess.
Hope he took harbs calling out to heart and won't let it happen again.
