BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 Once a prospect, but no more. Journell endured a slew of shoulder injuries before finally undergoing surgery last May to repair a torn labrum. These stories rarely end well. Symptomatically, Journell's control failed him in recent seasons before his wing finally gave out. It'll be surprising if he's ever anything of consequence at the highest level.
