Any word on Nathan is progressing?

Will he be ready for San Diego State?

Nathan Rourke is getting ready to try to earn the backup quarterback position with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

We know Kurtis Rourke has been able to do some practicing. The extent of what he has been able to do and when has not been extensively covered since there is no full time beat writer post pandemic. Everything we have heard leads us to believe that he is likely to try to go against SDSU. We don't know this with certainly nor how close to 100% he is likely to be.

Makes me a little nervous. The speed at which he is back.

Got a chance to talk to Albin briefly and he was *very* enthusiastic about how far and fast "Nathan O'Rourke" has come. What that means as far as live reps, we'll probably be playing wait and see for a while. Hardest part about coming back are the ghosts.

Honestly, I hope he stays in a knee brace, on a wheelchair, inside a bubble, on the moon until he's 99%. I hate seeing kids rush back quickly. I'd rather have him for a 9-0 conference title run than have him twist his knee on a scramble at FAU.

If I had to guess, we won't see him play until home vs LIU, at the earliest. Possibly not til Iowa State. I would be cautious testing out my knee on someone else's turf.

Didn't use a knee brace in spring practice.

This all I was able to find out about Nathan. Apparently he had surgery in January to remove the metal plate and screws that had been installed to repair his Lisfranc sprain. There seems to be every reason to expect a complete recovery. He expected to compete for the backup position, and most likely to end up on the practice squad this fall.

The sad truth is that he can make a lot more on an NFL practice squad than as the MVP of the CFL.

Besides the sarcasm, Alaska Cat, that is cool for you to inquire, 3,000 miles away.. You should try to make a home game sometime.

Isn't the Fiami game on the same day as Halloween? Good luck finding a hotel.

Yeah, Alaska. We're glad you're here, we just give each other a hard time about stuff.
