I've been following Caddy's back issues since it was reported the first week of training camp that he didn't work out the first week due to back spasms...the back spasms flared up again a few weeks ago.

Now I read this from ESPN's Will Carroll (very reputable source):

Bob Dobolina: Will, Eric Karabell made some very vague reference to there being "something more going on" with Cadillac Williams. Any info on this?

Will Carroll: (3:09 PM ET ) There's nothing vague here. Sources tell me that Williams has herniated discs in his back. That's much more serious than back spasms, but something that can be managed. I don't know the severity of the herniations, but the Bucs medical staff has a task ahead of them. I think this downgrades Williams a bit in the short term and makes Michael Pittman a must-have handcuff.

it could be career ending.. herniated discs are not always easy to fix for a normal person.

Depends on the pain management docs they have there and of course Caddy's threshold for pain.

Didn't this do in Daryl Gardner??

That would be terrible...

I want to see him and Ronnie battle for years...

I like Caddy alot, back injuries are terrible and can certainly ruin a promising career. Shame if he cant get back in the form he was for most of last year.

And the knock was that Ronnie was not going to be durable. I wonder how much the current problem has to do with Jon Gruden going Wannstedt/Ricky with him last year.

Good time to handcuff Pittman!
Seriously...I noticed that some Fantasy gurus are starting to pick up on this too.

They split carries, also Foster has never played a full season before. Injury plauged.

This is bad. I mean, there isn't even a guarantee that he will ever be the same again. Remember how he exploded the first three games last season? It was insane.

Sad..

Hey man, unless you plan on NOT winning your league, I wouldn't put too much faith in Foster at all. Isn't he about to loose his starting position??

I'd say its about time for you to seek trades...I know I would!
