Says he may play a bit on Sunday.
Throw a big brace on it and let's get at this thing.
Quick healer. Call him Adrian Peterson :smile:
Why rush it? I mean I'm sure the coaching/training staff know best, but it sure seems like it would be best, in everyones interests, to wait longer than even necessary.
Knees scare me. Jury is still out as to whether this is good news.
If he's been cleared to play, there's nothing to still rest. He's ready to let loose, so let him.
Have Michigan rest McGrady and we will rest Melvin
It's kind of hard to believe that he could recover that quickly from a knee injury like that. I don't think they will rush him back......at least I would hope not. Rest of the season is a lot more important than the next couple of games.
Its a hyperextension. He will have a brace preventing re extending it. Big thing is he is not swelling and bone bruise is healed. If he has been running on it and it isnt he should be in good shape.
Makes me nervous as well. That said, i like our chances better with him in there.
While I would normally agree with you, considering it was said earlier that they'd be exceedingly cautious about his return to prevent re-injury, I trust fred.
Let Me Melvin Rebound
He has some of the best training facilities and treatments avaialble out there. If it was one of us with the same injury in a pick-up basketball game, it would take 4-6 weeks. Ejim has been spending 3-4 hours a day treating the injury so I would excpect it to heal sooner than expected.
Melvin Ejim 104 Michigan 42
Standard for a hyperextended knee is 2-4 weeks. He had bad swelling so the initial report was long, swelling went away quickly though. (For a 22 year old closer to 2-3weeks, a 35 year old 4 weeks). I asked my orthopedic surgeon uncle.
As long as they are being cautious, the medical staff OK's it, and Melvin feels fine, go for it. They won't push him back for any reason, especially an early season, non-conference game.
Yeah, he just hyperextended it. It's not like there was ligament damage or anything like that.
In fact, I'm not so sure he couldn't have played already, but there wasn't any reason for him to rush back for the exhibition or the cupcake first game.
I think they know what they are doing. Fred said he doesn't want to risk any further injury.
They've already said they won't rush him back and will be especially cautious with him. If he plays it's because he's ready.
Good news? How about Great News!
I would think people are smart enough to assume that Fred and staff know how serious the injury is and when he is ready to play. They aren't gonna rush him. If he's ready to play a bit on Sunday, then he's ready to play a bit on Sunday.
Here's some more on it from the Ames paper:
