    I think he is done for the season. I just hope its not ACL and as they said its MCL sprain. Which is 2-4 week deal, so that means, his season ended in NFL E.

    Man, thats two weeks in a row, two leading QBs in NFL Europe both went down.

    Depends on the severity of the sprain. A sprain IS a tear. There's just different degrees to a sprain.


    I "Sprained" my MCL a few years ago was suppose to be out for 6 months. Doc said it would of been 5 months with surgery. I didn't have the money to waste on only 1 month (basically), but I ended up coming back in 4 months anyway (although I played on it before I should have. Luckily I didn't reinjure it).

    Well probably having a professional working you out etc. really speeds up the process. Since it seems like in NFL MCL sprains, usually tend to be 2-4 week variety. Either way, I think Henson is out of NFL E, and probably for a month at least.

    I was afraid of that, and thats what exactly happened, although I thought he would get injured even earlier the way the OL was blocking in second Amsterdamn game.

    Henson picked up his game during last quarter last week and was good first quarter and then injury in late first quarter this week, everything went to tank after that. Oh well, he atleast got a chance that he has the tools to succeed in NFL if given time and good weapons. I guess thats all we can hope for now.

    Again, it depends on the severity of the sprain. If someone gets a severe MCL sprain they won't be back in 4 weeks.


    And I rehabbed my knee (with professionals) from about 2 weeks after I sprained it till I was back on the field. Still took 4 months (with me coming back earlier then I should have).


    That said, I did also have some damage to my meniscus (sp?).

    A sprain (and we don't know if this is correct and to what degree Drew even has) is a stretched or torn ligaments.

    With all due respect to your MCL rehab experiences Rack, you should not attempt speak with absolute authority about things which you are not well versed ;)

    that said drew's stint in Europe might be over and if not it is significantly hampered. :(

    I say let him sit out the rest of the NFLE season. He got the experience we wanted. Give him some rest, let it heal and give him a fair shot at the backup spot with Romo.

    Well, Whether he wants to do it or not, Probably Henson won't have much of option, unless that sprain wasn't as serious or bad as it looked, since he was visibly limping, not even sure why coaches even let him go back in again. I am sure Henson wanted to go back in, but he sure seemed like he could barely walk at times.

    It's hard to get a read on him without a decent line and receivers. Can't wait to see him again in pre-season. Hopefully he'll get just a little bit more time with the starters.

    Ummm... did you read my post? I said a sprain is a tear. Just depends on the severity. YOU should not attempt to correct people if you don't know what you're talking about. Mmmkay?

    Yep, I think so. It was clear he was thinking about his foot when pass rush was coming too on few occasions. Its not co-incidence that he missed the deep throws for first time after 3rd game this year,after the foot got hurt, IMO.

    Henson injures knee in NFL Europe game

    [SIZE=-1]12:44 AM CDT on Sunday, May 7, 2006

    [SIZE=-1]By JEAN-JACQUES TAYLOR / The Dallas Morning News[/SIZE]

    Third-string quarterback Drew Henson suffered a sprained right medial collateral ligament in the first half of a 16-14 loss to Frankfurt on Saturday but tried to play in the second half.

    "I've never had a knee injury before," said Henson via e-mail. "But I think this is a deal where you get the swelling out and see how bad the pain is."

    The injury is not expected to keep him out for a significant period of time. Henson had completed 5 of 13 passes for 39 yards at the time of his injury. Entering the game, he was 96-of-170 passing for 1,149 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions.

    "He looks like he has improved over there," Parcells said.

    I sprained my MCL, I don't remember the grade. I was on crutches for a week, I was playing in about 3 weeks (basketball).... from my experience and my understanding. It's not a stabilization issue.

    I felt perfectly fine on mine until I took a step..... for the life of me I can't remember but I think I could even step off it, but when I picked it up and moved it in front of my other foot is when I felt the pain.....

    If you've ever torn your ACL you know what I mean by stabilization. My ACL experience was terrible.

    Not a "Stretched" ligament either since your ligaments "stretch" every time you bend your knee.


    A sprain is a tear. The mildest sprain has even a slight tear.

    Wrong? If your ligaments aren't "Stretching" then you aren't bending your knee. Period.

    you can sprain without it being designated as a "tear" as i stated 2x already.

    you can overstretch a ligament (or muscle or tendon) and cause injury but not "tears". sorry but judging by what you posted you are misinformed about this even though you continue to blabber on about it. hence my prior post.
