    That’s just great. Pulling for a full recovery. I’m so glad our “resident expert know it all” was wrong

    Good for him, I hope he gets a full recovery. But I hope he doesn't try playing too soon because of pressure to get back on the field. From what I remember reading and the number of surgeries he has had, to hit the football field next year could be dangerous for him and his knee.

    Hope he makes a full recovery.  It would be an amazing thing if he were to play again. 

    PS physical therapy sucks after an injury or surgery!  I can't imagine what he is going thru

    Reminds me of the Bears' TE Zach Miller's knee injury a few seasons ago after catching a TD pass. He almost lost his leg too. To add insult to injury the TD was called back.

    Impressive.  I would not have guessed him to be able to recover like he has.  Amazing news for him and his family.  I am more than happy to have been wrong on this one.  I was concerned his career was over, it still stands as one of the worse injuries I have seen to date.

    Sounds sounds like he’s got a ways to go yet, but definatly a way better prognosis than ealrlier. If needed, he could probably get a medical redshirt for this year.
