    He has to wait a few weeks for the MCL to repair itself and then have surgery to repair his ACL and then the long road to recovery. Given the position he plays and the way he plays it I'm not expecting a lot from him next year.

    I heard they're feeding him the legs of several olympic runners in hopes that his body will absorb their healthy parts.

    Sort of like the creature in Jeepers Creepers

    He's almost completely healed........seriously, what kind of news are you expecting a few weeks after major surgery?

    I can tell you, he's resting.

    FYI he didn't have surgery yet and no there isn't much in the way of updates and probably won't be see Brady last year.

    It's been 3 weeks. He has to wait (a total of) 4-6 weeks for the MCL to heal. So I would imagine his surgery will be in 1-3 weeks.

    I guess the only update we could hope for so far is if it took/is taking a lot of time with the swelling... isn't that the biggest deciding factor for how quickly you can have surgery? I guess that may be the same thing people are talking about with the MCL.

    Still, it would be nice to hear SOMETHING.

    Funny.


    Makes you think. What if BB was the coach of the Western Europe All-History Team?

    Charles I - questionable (neck)
    St. Sebastian - doubtful (arrows in abdomen)
    Rasputin - probable (poisoned, shot, frostbite, water in lungs)
    Count Claus von Stauffenberg - did not practice (lead poisoning)
    Joan of Arc - Likely (third degree burns, smoke inhalation)
    William Wallace - doubtful (joint pain)
    George III - probable (off his freakin' chump)

    No, he's day to day with a sore leg. ;)

    Question: Why does he have to wait for the MCL to mend on its own before they can surgically repair the ACL? Why can't they repair the ACL and then splint/cast him so both will be on the road to recovery?
