WitP: Ikaika Alama-Francis Update, Wayne Hunter, Francis Maka

Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel provides an update on the status of Ikaika Alama-Francis.
Well… turns out the virus Alama-Francis caught the night before the season-opener against Buffalo didn’t just sap him of his energy, and prevent him from retain any food or liquids.

Could Ike Alama-Francis help the Dolphins run support?

But Alama-Francis said he also couldn’t swallow “anything” for about a week, and as a result he lost 15-20 pounds he’s presently struggling to put back onto his 285 pound frame.

Coincidentally, this former defensive end shed 20 pounds during the offseason to make the transition to strong side linebacker. These days he’s force feeding himself everything possible to put the weight back on to crack the gameday roster.

“All the stuff that was off limits for a while I can eat now,” Alama-Francis said, referring to his strict diet. “It’s a free for all.”
Meanwhile, it looks like Wayne Hunter will be out for a second straight week with a massive shin bruise.
It doesn’t appear that Wayne Hunter will be ready for the Bills. Ryan said that Hunter’s swollen shin “doesn’t seem to be getting any better.”
And Francis Maka has signed with the Spokane Shock of the AFL.
DL Maka, 6-2 255, is a rookie to the AFL, but he is no stranger to football. Last season, Maka played for an indoor football league as a member of the Arkansas Diamonds where he recorded 6.5 sacks with 23.5 tackles in only nine games. Before his time with the Diamonds, Maka finished his collegiate career at the University of Hawaii where he recorded 2.5 sacks in two seasons.
