    Judging by his twitter account, we will have #25 running the ball for the Cyclones.

    Not sure how to link to twitter...so here is what he said...

    That would make our deepest position even deeper. I wasn't even counting on him playing next year. Great news.

    Here nor there
    That would be fantastic news. White, Woody, Sh. J and our running QBs will give defenses fits if the OC opens things up a bit.

    White did a great job filling in for him last year, but I get the vibe that he isn't much of a feature back. Shontrelle is. It'll be great to have him back. I hope he doesn't have any setbacks...he's one of my favorites

    I really hope he doesn't hurt himself again. There is more to life than just football. I sure do miss some of his jukes though...

    This is amazing news. He is the most dynamic player on our offense IMO. Very excited to have him back.

    Hopefully true & not just him being optimistic. I feel like Rhoads would have let the media know this yesterday?

    I hope he never plays again for selfish reasons. The thought of seeing one of our own laying on the field not able to move is not pleasant to me.

    Shontrelle, White, Horne, and West. Those are 4 guys who need a lot of touches this year. All very shifty and extremely difficult to tackle on the first attempt.

    I agree. I like White, but he's more of a change of pace back. I just think that he goes down too easily and isn't much of an inside runner. Shontrelle may not have White's speed, but he is a more complete back. Either way, assuming that he is playing, he's going to be a nice addition to the group.

    That first statement is super odd. That can happen to anyone at anytime.

    Agree with the bolded section. As much as I want to see him play, I don't want him crippled for life.

    Agreed. There should absolutely be no rush on this. And there is no way any player can be 100% free of a neck injury, let alone a guy who has already experienced one. And remember, Shontrelle still has a redshirt he can use. Maybe that full season off can benefit him and being extremely patient would pay off and allow for an eventual return?

    Obviously a healthy Shontrelle would help this team, as he is an elite talent with the ball in his hands. Just not sure how much reward there is compared to the risks. Help win a couple more games and have a shot at the NFL? Or possibly never walk again?

    This is why the doctors and CPR get paid top dollar.

    I mean that I know that the kid wants to play again, but I hope he is being smart about it.
