Lots of players start camp on PUP. Many return within the first week or so.

He may have just failed the conditioning test.

This is more of a rookie fat kid thing then an injury

Re: Big Lou 


Either way, out of shape/injured, he'd better fix it quickly otherwise he'll find himself inactive for several games to start the season.
And if he's that badly out of shape, he's not making a good impression on his new coaches.

Re: Big Lou 


Nix was never going to get in shape unless he was forced. Kelly and Longo couldn't get him to do it. He also never expressed an independent desire to get in shape. Many times he praised particular brands of cookies and candy, however.

He'd better light a fire under himself quick. To much talent in the NFL to try & skate by.

Honestly, do you consider Nix to have been in good shape? Do you think in that amount of time he couldn't have gotten in better shape? A lot better? On his best day, was he not a giant fat man (who ate like one too?)? Look at the video of him training for Pro Day. I know that was supposed to be him in amazing, peak shape. But to me, just to honest, he looked like a giant fat man who was shaking like jello. Did he perform up to expectations last season? He had, what, five years? Is it really impossible for a fat man to get in shape over the course of five years? He certainly cheerfully talked about his favorite donuts. I've known people on diets, and he really never impresssed me as a guy passionate to get in shape. Am I wrong?

Re: Big Lou 


He wasn't in great shape across his entire career, but the dude played a ton of snaps in 2012. He clearly was in shape for a span there whether he looked flabby or not. It takes a lot for a DT his size to play as much as he did. DT's perceived to be in superior shape relative to him don't play as much as he did that year.

Re: Big Lou 


At this point, if it really is a conditioning problem, you have to wonder how much he really does love football.

It's never a good sign when you miss practice and your head coach doesn't know what's wrong with you.

Re: Big Lou 


So at the time of combine he was cutting his weight and working out at special camps, now he cant pass a test?

Sorry, but he is lazy. And there are plenty like him in the NFL. How can he go from best shape to no shape in 3-4 months? Terrible. Esp for a rookie.

There is a reason he wasnt a 1st or even 2nd round pick. He will need to work very hard to keep himself in shape.

Re: Big Lou 


Some of the people on this board crack me up.

Louis Nix was in good condition his Junior year.  Once he got his knee injury he could no longer do the aerobic conditioning needed to stay in shape and he could not do that same conditioning leading up to the draft.

a guy his size not being able to do this type of exercise for months is going to take months to recover from that

Re: Big Lou 


Yeah people tend to forget about rookies who sit on rosters and contribute nothing.  He needs to get Into gear or hes going to be putting that ND degree to good use a few years before he planned to.

If millions and millions of dollars and a shot to play In the NFL doesnt motivate you.....nothing will.

Re: Big Lou 


No they didnt.  Lou was never In shape his entire stay at ND.  If he went all out he never got as many reps as Kelly/Diaco wanted him to.   If he paced himself, he was pretty much a non factor and showed minimal effort.  I love Big Lou, but Its a known fact he wasnt exactly the hardest worker In the weight room or In the conditioning drills.

Re: Big Lou 


Actually I remember one of the coaches saying that Lou was In better shape for the 2012 season but he still had a lot of work to do to get to where coaches are going to need him to be.  There Is nothing wrong with Lou as a person but If he wants to play football for a living he Is going to have to devote himself to physical fitness and eating healthier.  He does not have the raw genetics that some players do to get by on.
