Ozzie is very conservative as far as rushing players back, so its all good news for us.
You know his target has to be one of the Steeler's games. I don't think he could live with himself if he missed those games.
I say Week 13, Steelers @ Ravens
eligibility to come off PUP, doesn't mean eligibility to play. Methinks he will not be active for several more weeks after he comes off PUP
Just feels like a VERY bad idea. Would like to be wrong about this, but his size, and the torque on that tendon makes me very uneasy about rushing him back. Another tear and I'm not sure he comes back from it.
The last time this nonsense came up I challenged anyone to prove otherwise, using all documented history on the internet ( I found about 10 very recent NFL Football cases alone, not to mention all the other sports which puts it in the hundreds I am guessing)...and no one could.
November 18 would be 6.5 months, it aint happening.
An achilles is worse than an ACL, especially for a pass rusher, and people think Adrian Peterson is a God because he came back in 7 months from that injury.
I will gladly take the bet, as long as we qualify him playing more than say 15 snaps, which would pretty much be pass rushing situations only. If he plays less than that and can't hold up to finish the game that does not count.
Enjoy posting while you can.
Totally utterly incorrect, garbage this post is. I've told you before it's been done a lot quicker, you obviously just ignore other people when they prove you wrong. You said the same thing earlier in the summer. You don't know everything, contrary to what you believe.
Alastair Brownlee, the British triathlete that won gold in this summers Olympics, tore his Achilles' tendon fully in march and came back in 3 months to be the best triathlete in the world, bar none.
3 months from a full tear, to be the best in his field.
Go back and look at that thread I LINKED TO THE ARTICLE.
YOU are the only who doesn't know what the hell you are talking about, so go ahead and look back at that thread and click on the link to his story. Then you can apologize for being so mis informed and wrong.
Oh and anyone who wants to put their money where their big mouths are, step on up. Name your price.
I am trying to get other stuff done I don't have any more time to waste on this garbage, this is about the 5th Suggs thread I have said this in.
''Terrell had a successful surgical procedure done on his Achilles tendon this afternoon by Dr. Bob Anderson,'' general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement.
I really don't see Suggs coming back til late way late. If he does come back by the houston game ill fall over.
You see how no one can provide one example? That is because these "miracles" do not exist with this injury. I am sorry, I spent almost an entire day LAST TIME we went over this and KNOW what I am talking about. That is how I KNOW, because I actually spent the time to research it unlike every other person who claims otherwise.
I put up or shut up, but apparently no one else wants to do the same.
I found this article online. I apologize if it has already been posted. It doesn't sound encouraging.
Of the 31 players who sustained an Achilles tendon rupture, 21 (64%) returned to play in the NFL at an average of 11 months after injury. In the three seasons following their return, those 21 players saw significant decreases in games played and power ratings compared to the three seasons preceding the injury.
The percentage of players returning to play at the NFL level is consistent with a meta-analysis performed by Bhandari4 in 2002. The authors reported return to function rates of 63% for patients treated nonoperatively and 71% for those treated operatively. If we assume that all the NFL players were treated operatively, as would be the standard for young athletes, the return to play rate of 64% is slightly lower than the 71% reported in the meta-analysis. This difference could be attributed to the excessive demands placed on the operatively repaired Achilles tendon in NFL players combined with a body size, strength, and explosiveness that would further increase these demands.
The length of time to allow full activity after Achilles tendon repair is generally thought to be four to six months.4-6 The 11 months needed to return to play as a professional football player seems considerably longer. However, there is a major difference between allowing full activity and returning to play in the NFL. Even when the typical patient is allowed to participate in full activity, it does not mean that he or she is adequately rehabilitated to perform at maximal efforts. Studies to determine maximal improvement after surgical treatment are lacking in the orthopedic literature.
Any questions people? Go ahead and run your traps now. Tell me how little I know again.
And Suggs is gonna play in 6.5 months?? LOL.
I insta called the second you shoved your chips in the middle.
I bet that last post Dirt made got you a little bit scared no?
Let's put some money on it as well if you want to play games. How about that? Name your price.
