    If the Texans put him on IR, he is done. If not, there may be a chance. Texans only have 1 IR return left and that goes to Ka’mi.

    I'm not a doctor, let alone his doctor, but neither are you, so maybe cool it with the "I know everything" attitude eh?

    i mean its actually common sense. you don't need to be a dr to know he isn't rushing back this season, especially with his injury. he has so much football ahead of him. he wasn't devasted on that stretcher thinking hey guys ill see yall in 2 months back on the field.

    so yea i do know in this situation because it's what smart players do to take care of their careers in the long run.

    he goes through a full recovery without at any instant being rushed. a full rehab and gets back into football shape playing at the highest level next season, not a span of 6 weeks

    Checks out, it is a Sean Payton team. Not the first time his team was caught doing this type of stuff. Fck him.

    Blocking DBs is a must in this offense but being in the middle of scrums is completely different. Make the business decision and stay away from piles.
    I don't care if you're 300 lbs/ 6'4, or 225lbs chieseld or 5'10. Nothing good happens when a fatty rolls your legs from behind in the middle of a pile.
    Same reason I hate the qb sneak

    He has a broken fibula and it's stressed when he makes the kinds of moves that give him separation. it's a bad injury at a part he uses. It's not worth the risk to him or the Texans, If he played a different position, he might tolerate the pain. But you don't have to be a doctor to know sometime it just needs to heal.

    Why doesn't Tank listed under choices of WR for Pro Bowl voting? That's crazy.

    I'm no doctor either, but you'd be surprised at the amount of people that are just out there walking around with pieces of their fibulas missing.

    Sometimes it's used as a bone graft to help supplement other areas that have had bone removed. I've seen it done for the jaw, for instance.

    What's the purpose of saying this?

    The fibula's ultimate function is for muscle attachment. It depends on where the break is as to how quick he can be back making plays like he's used to. The higher up it is (without getting up near its upper attachment to the tibia), the better.

    Depending on the injury, the prognosis can honestly be better than a high ankle sprain.

    That being said, I know nothing about the specifics of his injury.

    This is 100% correct, as far as I know.

    Depends on the injury itself, but 6 weeks is realistic. 8 weeks might be more realistic, but let's not forget this is a young, top flight athlete.

    I said this for those who think it's just a matter of pain tolerance. I'm assuming it's near the ankle since they initially thought it was an ankle injury. I also assume the location would be stressed with elite start and stop action. While assumptions, they seem more like educated assumptions based on simple physics. I don't see the justification of ignoring the obvious.
