This was covered by the fox NFL guys.
I hope he's OK, it doesn't sound good though.

Timmons played well in Preseason.

Apparently something happened with the team that made him upset and he took an unofficial leave of absence.

Steelers players looking to find out:

Timmons and Mike Pouncey were displaced by the hurricane and came to Pittsburgh to wait it out.

Both attended Steelers practice on Friday. Timmons didn't return i guess.

As much as we bitch about the Steelers. The players seem to love it in Pittsburgh. Timmons may have gotten a shell shock into how other organizations operate/function or dysfunction.

Yup.
He could have flown to NYC. Washington, Boston, or any other east coast city.
But landed in Pittsburgh.

As Tomlins first ever pick.....
I can see him back in Pittsburgh down the road as a vet. min. depth role player.
See Larry Foote. Gay, Plax, etc..

Pretty sure he has a house here. Plus Mike was staying with his brother.

Glad to hear that. I was hoping it wasn't anything bad. He epitomized Steelers football for a decade.

Sorry to confuse the situation. I guess the visit to practice was last Friday after their game was postponed.

Sure seems like he misses the Steelers.

It seems Timmons was in LA with the Dolfins all week. Went AWOL on Saturday, but if I'm reading this right, they eventually found out where he is/was.
It doesn't appear that he is in trouble or danger...just POed or concerned about something.

Rumored he could be cut this afternoon...We shall see

And ESPN article said he was getting checked by a doctor.

Quote:
After dealing with what one source described as "a personal matter" this weekend, Miami Dolphins linebacker Lawrence Timmons is scheduled to meet Monday with doctors to try to figure out what is wrong, per sources.

Miami Dolphins linebacker Lawrence Timmons was ruled inactive after going AWOL from the team on Saturday, which also ended Timmons' streak of 101 consecutive starts.

One source said Timmons is "doing much better [Monday] and wants to resume playing immediately" with the hope that he will practice this week. But first come the doctor visits.

The Dolphins are unsure what the issue is with Timmons, but one league source said he does not believe it is the early onset of CTE. "No one has ever seen anything like it," one source said.

The 31-year-old Timmons, entering his 11th NFL season, was dealing with his personal matter Saturday and returned to the team early Sunday morning before the Dolphins decided he wasn't in a good place to play against the Los Angeles Chargers. His streak of 101 consecutive starts was snapped.

Following the Dolphins' 19-17 victory over the Chargers, coach Adam Gase would only say that Timmons didn't play Sunday due to a coach's decision.

"I need to figure some things out before I talk about this," he said.

Miami signed Timmons to a two-year, $10 million contract in March. He was the team's starting outside linebacker all throughout training camp and leading into the regular season.

Phins called the FBI looking for him as a missing person last weekend. Savran reporting that they think he may have CTE issues.

TMZ Sports reports the Dolphins filed a missing persons report for SLB Lawrence Timmons on Saturday.

Timmons was reportedly not in his room at curfew, and the team could not find him despite calling family and close friends. Timmons was eventually found at the airport early Sunday morning in the boarding area for a flight headed to Pennsylvania, which is where his child lives. Timmons returned to the team on Monday, but his future with the team remains muddled.

If this is what it sounds like, I hope he just retires.

Post subject:  Re: Slightly OT: Timmons

I had the good fortune to work with many players suffering from post-concussion issues (almost certainly some level of CTE). If what is going on is in fact mental health/cte related, I hope he has a strong support system and can find the help he needs to manage. Most players, unfortunately, do not. Once the money and prestige dries up, so does their entourage. And help is not easily asked for nor readily available.

If this is the onset of CTE at 31, I'd say it's time to find a soccer team to root for.

Seriously. If this is what is happening how in the hell can we root for these guys to bang into each other if it means dementia at 31?

That's where I am at this point. Many here would call me a pussy for it, or for refusing to let my kids play football.

Holy shit. Talk about jumping the gun. Everyone screams CTE at the first sign of something unusual.

I read the posts here.

Quote:
.......does not thing it is CTE relate.

.....was headed to Pennsylvania where his child lives.


hell, the one article insinuates that Miami knew he was dealing with a personal issue.

There could be a thousand reason he took off.

I don't think after 10 years of playing for the Steelers, he goes to a new team and CTE just kicks in.

Seems he is more likely dealing with some family stuff.
