Gano Broke His Back in Two Places in Season Finale

Sometimes it is not pretty when kickers or punters get involved on tackles, just ask Redskins kicker Graham Gano broke his back in two places trying to make a tackle in the team’s season-ending game against the Eagles.

According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Gano broke two bones trying to make a tackle after a 36-yard field goal try was blocked, he was hit from behind by defensive end Jason Babin on the play, and he All instant games are available for US players (Both free and real money play), again – no need to download or obligate to anything, just choose one of the many quality online casino roulette games we have here for you and start playing immediately. continued to play in the game, kicking a field goal and extra point.

Per the report, the Redskins did not announce in the injury and Gano has remained in Washington to rehabilitate the injury, something that will require six to eight weeks. He will be a free agent, he made 31 of 41 field goals and special teams coordinator Danny Smith spoke highly of him. It remains to be seen if he is in the team’s plans.

    Hopefully it adds to the competitors the ALLEN-SHANAHAN brain-trust will bring in. GANO is one FA I would like to see gone.

    Personally, I’d keep him. He didn’t do bad. The blocks were almost all straight up the middle, due to break downs in blocking, not because they were bad kicks.Ethan Albright was a very good long snapper, and Nick Sundberg hasn’t been as solid in the blocking there, or else the guards on kicks weren’t. But this guy kicked a 59 yarder, he has been more consistent this season, good kickers are not always that easy to find.

    Great distance, poor ‘pop’, and poor accuracy. He drives the ball well, but has very limited ‘feel’ for kicking. Witness his struggles trying to kick-off this season. Just hasn’t learned the art of kicking yet.

    Come March 13, I’m praying for an announcement by BRUCE ALLEN that CONNER BARTH is our kicker for 2012.
