    The statistics I read on the internets from Google scholar indicated aprox. 40% chance of complete success (total return of functionality) and about 75% chance of a return that includes diminished functionality. It wasn't explicitly stated, but I think that final 25% would indicate that his knee will be screwed beyond usability by pro athlete, and he limps around in pain for the rest of his life.

    I've also read several places that the first year back is not indicative of the totality of recovery.

    I expect if he plays more than 50% of snaps next year without a limp of having to go to the sideline for treatment every other series will be a positive first step.

    Year 2 will be when you start to judge the final outcome of surgery. An ACL like Dante Fowler would have been a much less invasive repair these days.

    Typical pre-camp hype. I won't believe that he looks "spectacular" until I see it on the field every sunday.

    Why did we draft this guy? I wanted the Texans to trade the pick for more picks if they weren't going to draft a QB. I sure hope he proves me wrong......

    Um...someone has to be willing to give you the value. Trading just to get out of the spot is not something you will do.

    Just did some reading on that blood flow restriction training. It's good for developing size, but not strength.

    No he does not suck. He is injured prone but he does not suck. I will like to see you at least try to do half the things he does, *** hole.

    This thread is a reminder that they should have drafted Sammy Watkins like a very insightful poster suggested :grin:

    LOL, so you really think a #2 WR is that big of a deal compared to what Clowney will likely bring the team?

    Sammy is a #1 receiver... And what has Clowney brought to the team besides hope _ as in we hope he can play. Lol...

    I've already written him off. If he contributes anything this year, I will be pleasantly surprised.

    On his team, sure, but he'd be the #2 WR here firmly behind Nuk. As to Clowney, he'll make his presence felt this season.

    Or we could have had two #1 receivers... Which one is better of the two is irrelevant because they would compete against opposing defenses and not each other...

    I hope you're right... But you've been wrong about Clowney so far.

    Interesting. I wonder what parts of the body this can be used on.

    Hindsight tells me that Khalil Mack should've been the guy. If I could go back in time and make myself GM, that's the pick I would've made.
