    Carstens hopes for return next season

    Defensive tackle Jordan Carstens, who suffered a blood clot in his lung in mid-November, said he hopes to play next season.

    Carstens, who is on the injured reserve list, has begun working out and attending meetings. But he said his football future will depend on if a kidney disease diagnosed before last season can be cleared up.

    Carstens played through the 2005 season with the condition while taking medication. Blood clots are a side effect of that medication.

    He won't be cleared to play football until he is off the blood-thinning medication.

    "As long as the kidney disease is there, they want me on the blood thinners," Carstens said. "They're not 100 percent sure how long it's going to take to get rid of this disease. I really don't have a timetable. They're going to keep monitoring it from week to week." -- Pat Yasinskas

    Without him, it is no wonder why the Carolina defense sucks this year. Also note that Jacksonville is not as salty without one Reggie Hayward.
