I have a lot of experience with loved ones having cancer. Once it gets to the lymph system it is very dangerous and unpredictable. Here is what a quick search on the internet says:
Stage III colon cancers have spread to nearby lymph nodes, but they have not yet spread to other parts of the body. Surgery to remove the section of the colon with the cancer (partial colectomy) along with nearby lymph nodes, followed by adjuvant chemo is the standard treatment for this stage.
A stage III colon cancer has about a 40 percent chance of cure.
Losing Humphrey might be one too many injuries to overcome, but honestly, I thought he took a step back this year. He's looked a step slow most of the year and we all know he's not a play maker when it comes to interceptions. Still, he was the guy they really could not afford to lose due to the thin amount of talent at corner this year for the Ravens after all the injuries.
Tony Lombardi at RSR is on point in his wrap of yesterday's game.
Harbaugh brought up a good point about going over zero and blitzing too much ("going to the well one too many times") and that's a good point. When you look at the Diontae Johnson 29 yard TD reception, it was a simple rub crossing play but with no safety out there, it was a simple run and catch. What in the world Brandon Stephens was doing on this play is beyond me. Also, why blitz a QB that has traditionally been very good against the blitz?
Trey will be tested several times a year by his oncologist. If anything shows up it will be addressed immediately. His involvement in baseball could be put on hold. Hopefully nothing shows up. But after stage 3 cancer it is not something that can be ruled out. Any GM offering an multi year contract to Trey has to evaluate the risk of some kind of recurrence.
Does it depend how he profiles defensively? If he's 2B or 3B, that's a harder sell as #1, very easy sell if he can stick at SS. I like Dru Jones for his profile of his dad pretty much, maybe with more speed.
