I was at the game yesterday and the question on my mind throughout the game was - where in Hades is Andre Heidari and what is the story with him?
In particular how long will we be without him and what are we going to do in the meanwhile?
Anyone out there have any information on this?
He didn't make the trip, knee injury. In regards to what will we do without him...probably what we did yesterday

where is albarado, can he kick fgs? i thought i remembered reading he was a do it all guy in HS. Either way, the walk on did good on his PATs.
Someone at the Syracuse game who claims to know players on the team claims that Heidari had minor knee surgery and expected to be able to play in three to four weeks. I cannot verify the accuracy of this person - only that he seemed to know what he was talking about.
Can someone please explain to me how a kicker gets injured in a game? The only ways I can think of would be if they were run into, or if their foot hit the ground. Hopefully we recruit a kicker for the 2014 class so we can have a reliable back up and get them prepared once Heidari leaves.

Pulling a leg/groin muscle seems most likely to me... A lot of torque being expended on their lower body.
That makes sense, thank you for explaining that.
hurt it while planting. easy to hurt your knee when you put a lot of pressure on one leg and you slip slightly.
He also does kickoffs and isn't afraid of contact.
I'll defer to you on this.
I spent months in PT after hurting my knee kicking in HS.
Those of you with knee problems will understand better than others, but the repetitive nature of kicking can be highly destructive to your knee. With the amont of force behind Andre's kicks, I can only imagine how much pressure his knees are under...
When will he be back? Doesn't seem too serious because didn't he come back into the first game after injuring the knee?

He kicked a PAT, and it looked SHAKY.
I had surgery for a torn meniscus my freshman year of college. I was able to practice 3 weeks after surgery. I did have to have it scoped again a year later, but otherwise had pretty much no lingering affects then or in the last 15 years. If you injure your knee, pray it is the meniscus.
I markowitz got hurt his arm doing warm up snaps...idk....but that guy has to go down as the most injured not playing trojan ever.....but he always had a great attitude.
Injuries can happen anytime, not just during a game. I've only broken one bone in my life and that was my freshman year of high school just playing catch before baseball practice. The coach was standing next to me talking and a guy threw a ball a bit to the side so I stepped over and snapped a bone in my foot, ended up keeping me out for a month plus.
As for the knee, I can understand how a kicker would hurt his left knee planting it all the time. Similar to the pressure that a golfer puts on his left knee (for right handers)
a little birdie told me that Heidari might come back this week..
