    Sorry if this was posted before, but I looked and didn't see anything.

    After doing some research I found that the scaphoid bone can take anywhere from 6-15 to fully heal and it is indeed career threatning. Why is there any rush to get him back and risk losing him for the year or his career? I know, I should trust his doctors but they aren't always right and I worry for Tedy.

    No offense, but I'd rather trust doctors who deal with those injuries on a daily basis over 5 minutes of scaphoid research you did. Again, no offense.

    If it is risking further damage, he won't play. And if it isn't he'll play.

    So you're suggesting we should take your word for it? If we can't trust his doctors, we most certainly can't trust your research. I think the doctors treating him have a little bit more credibility than all of us here combined.

    We had the same issue last year after his stroke. Bruschi is NOT going to endanger his career by coming back too soon.

    who really cares if you like it or not? the only opinion that matters are the doctors.

    I'm missing something here. Czarnecki talked to his doctors?

    From what I've read, nope.

    Then where do we get "doctors say it's OK to play after 4 weeks"?

    Edit: original poster said something about doctors.

    Whoever did the surgery or whatever, I haven't read a doctors statement.

    I don't know, you're going to have to ask Czarnecki.

    Tedy will play with a cast. On playing with a cast, Steve Nelson said, "It was a club. It was a weapon. I kept it on two weeks longer than I was supposed to."

    When you have this injury you can't grasp things without pain.

    Grasping a jersey would be how he could reinjure it.

    If he has a cast that covers his fingers that would protect him, but he would be playing one handed.

    He's probably just quoting what Bruschi said right after it happened.:rolleyes:

    Read he would play with a cast. I'm sure he'll cope. What was your point?

    Where did you read it? I guess that's my point.

    Actually it comes from the same Fox writer. No sources mentioned.

    I guess if you believe everything you read, you'll believe.............everything.

    I'm still sticking to the Oct. home game against Miami.
    That's just a guess....hopefully sooner

    I definitely don't want Tedy to rush it, I have no problem with him missing Week 1 & 2, but I do hope he will be back in time for Week 4, but if not, that'd be okay too.
