Lappano on KJR, says Locker injured more than let on

If you’re in the Seattle-area right now, you may want to check out KJR-AM, where there is a fairly raging debate about an interview Tim Lappano gave last night with Elise Woodward. Lappano does a regular weekly show with Woodward that normally runs Thursday but this week ran on Tuesday.
You can access the interview here.
In it, Lappano said a lot of the same things he had told us earlier in the day in defending the use of Cody Bruns and Terrance Dailey in Saturday’s game at Arizona. But he also went a step further than he had with us in saying that those who criticized the move by saying that the players involved may not have wanted to play needed to have their facts straight. And he specifically mentioned former UW QB Hugh Millen, now an analyst for KJR.
Lappano also went further in describing the injury to Jake Locker than I have previously heard.
Lappano said the injury “is a lot worse than people realized.”
He said doctors inserted 12 pins into the hand and that one of the doctors said “it was one of the worst thumbs he had seen as far as how the bone was fractured.” He said Locker will need surgery again in three weeks to take out a plate.
Lappano brought that up in response to a question about Locker playing another position. Lappano said he’d be against it anyway but that the seriousness of the injury should completely rule it out. “I’d say right now, unless it starts healing up and really quick, there is no way we are going to do that,” he said.
Lappano also talked about his frustration over the 0-5 start, saying “no one saw this coming.”
