    do you think they would immediately would know if someting is torn or is swelling an indication? does an MRI immediatly tell them?

    any docs in the forum?

    No Jersey Selected

    It's almost as if the team got him an image consultant or something. He has smiled more times in this last week's pressers than in the last 8 years. Maybe they are trying to get him a bit more accessable so they stop getting crucified in the press.

    I am just speculating, of course.

    NOt a doc, but I believe there is a test that can give a good indication for whether there is an ACL tear. The guy goes on his back, the knee is bent and the trainers pull up on the knee. I saw them doing this to Brady on the sidelines, so they may have a good idea already whether it's an ACL.

    I think it's definitely a BAD sign that BB was out of character at the presser.

    I chose to take BB's behavior as good news. Perhaps he does not know all of the specifics but he knows that the injury is not season ending, but Brady is, instead, "only" out until the bye. Speculating but I remember after the game where Drew got hurt, and it was a loss, I understand that, Belichick was despondent in his post game presser.

    I'm sorry, but this just confirms to me that Brady is seriously injured.

    That was the 'anterior drawer sign' test. It is the best physical exam test to immediately check for ACL injury.
    I imagine it was negative or else they'd have taken greater measures. I think BB was very matter of fact and whether he was 'overcompensating' or 'hiding his happiness' I do not know. I hope he is happy for every postgame presser this year.

    Swelling is NOT an indication. Pre-MRI's, they would need for swelling to go down before they could make a clear diagnosis.

    My theory is it has more to do with the MILF ( I forget her name, but you know the blond bimbo I am talking about) than an edict from Kraft.
