Either him or Aaron Simian.
Or possibly Abe Sapien.
That would be a little fishy. Like returning from an Achilles tear in three months.
Might as well start Simeon Rice.
Or Jerry Rice.
Arron Rodgers with no mobility behind their line. Yes please.
Yawn ?? Dolphins beating your Jets made you cry.
Supposedly, it’s the Washington game that he’s targeting for his return. How true that is, I don’t know, but that was the consensus on ESPN radio this morning.
All this talk about Rodgers returning is nothing more than his ego talking. He will not play again this season. If the Yets somehow made the postseason he wouldn't play. He was cleared for limited practice. All that means is he can maybe jog a little and throw the football.
The common timeline for a person with an achillies tear to return to doing what he's doing is about 10-12 weeks post surgery. What's he at, week 11 post surgery? He's not doing anything out of the ordinary except claiming that he can come back this season.
If he comes back this season I'll eat my crow and praise him as some sort of super natural human being. But I seriously doubt that happens.
The surgery he had was different then the normal surgery, so in theory he could come back sooner. If I were him I would not want too, but he may want to prove something to someone.
I went back and watched the replay of the game. On the first 3-4 drives Phillips was a factor in almost every single play. It was really amazing. He abused their tackle. Best game of his career by far.
Why do you keep comparing his timeline to a common one? He had a completely different surgery.
Because I know what I'm talking about.
The Speedbridge surgery, while it typically allows a patient to place weight on the leg sooner, and potentially lessens the recovery time because there's less atrophy to the calf and other leg muscles, doesn't make the tendon heal faster. Tendons have very little blood flow and thus take considerably more time than most other soft tissue injuries to heal properly.
If he attempts to return this season his chances of re-rupturing his achilles would be very great. No doctor in their right mind would advise that he return.
The Jets are paying him a lot of money, and I seriously doubt they'd risk him never playing again. Then again, they are the Jets and not very smart. Sorry about your team.
But you were using timetables of people that didn't have the same surgery? So that's not a valid comparison. Cam Akers, returned to the field in 5 1/2 months after having the Speedbridge surgery. That's a valid comparison.
You are playing pretend doctor. If actual doctors can say he can play, I'll take their word over what you googled.
Gosh you sound desperate.
You're assuming again. And wrong, as usual.
Achilles ruptures take 6-12 months to heal regardless of the treatment. A couple of weeks earlier for a 22 yr old, healthy, and in shape NFL running back, isn't out of the realm of possibility and isn't miraculous.
Akers tore his in July of 2021. He had 5 rushing attempts for 3 yards in Jan. WOW! lol
Rodgers tore his on Sept 11th and wants to come back at the end of this month. Rodgers wants to come back 2 months earlier than Akers. He's 40 yrs old.
Won't happen. Your team will have to wait for him until next season.
I am? You are an orthopedic doctor/surgeon or do you just play one on the internet?
You and Dan keep it civil. It's getting close to edit.
Dan may not be an orthopedic surgeon but he did sleep at a Holiday Inn.
Here is the recovery timeline from the Mayo clinic for the speedbridge surgery that Rodgers had done.
Rodgers is in week 10 or 11 of his recovery and seems to be ahead of this schedule by a week or two which isn't surprising since the schedule is for us average Joe's not professional athletes. But you'll notice a return to sports related training isn't suppose to happen until week 16 on this schedule. If we assume Rodgers is 2 weeks ahead of schedule than he shouldn't start full sports related activity for another 3 weeks.
Could he return this year? Sure but he won't be 100% and behind that line will be a sitting duck.
This is the same guy that was diagnosing Tua and his long term medical conditions last year.
I actually think @danmarino is professionally involved with orthopedics.. lol. Not sure if he is a PhD. I'm sure he'll clarify.
Yeah I remember him saying stuff years ago, but I don't remember specifically, either.
I think that's accurate. He's targeting Christmas Eve return which is about 3 weeks.
I agree. It's a terrible idea for him to return this year because Jets are terrible (so it's pointless) and that line will get him hurt again.
The Jets are clearly beyond saving this year, so the only reason for Rodgers to play this year is because he (and his enormous ego) believe that it’s a significant achievement that will put another feather in his cap for his Canton induction.
I think this talk about Rodgers returning is half serious because his contract was designed to make the Jets a SB winner THIS year. Jets gave Rodgers a ton of money up front so the salary cap hit was relatively low this year. So in some sense there is a "moral" obligation to sacrificing everything for this year, or possibly at latest next year.
I can't peer into Rodgers' mind, but money shouldn't be a motivator given the huge signing bonus, and he should care about his health under normal circumstances, so maybe it's this feeling that he's the missing piece to a SB run? Ego as you say. Either way, Rodgers' injury was one of the unluckiest things to have happened to a franchise lol. Love it!
