Not really. He's had 2 knee injuries already. So he's at a higher risk compared to other guys.
They were freak deals, it's not like they were random little hits that turned into something bigger. He's thrown 60 TD's in the 2 seasons following the 1st one. I'm not the least bit concerned about it being some ongoing thing. I'd much rather it be two knee injuries than two concussions.
Ideally, you want a guy in the wings, just in case. It's very rare that it's a good idea to start a QB as a rookie, they can turn out great, but odds are your season won't(Exception: Big Ben, but his supporting cast was great). what the Broncos were probably trying to do was ideal, have Cutler getting ready while Plummer starts for another year or two. Of course, there was no way of knowing Plummer would be awful.
teams are better off taking a QB before their current one leaves. you need to give them some time instead of just throwing a rookie QB in to a starting position. the Packer's situation didn't turn out that well but Rodgers is still learning and he should start next season.
