    ok I have waited to post this but I had a severe burn on my left leg below the knee it affects the nerve and I could not feel anything for a long time. About 2 months ago I was laying on the bed next to my wife and suddenly boom I had full feeling in the burned area. it freaked me out and my wife poked at it for the next few minutes...
    point being is the nerve "woke up" instantly and out of nowhere. Now Smith's injury is different than mine but the reactions of the nerves should be the same

    That's wishful thinking. This is a kid off major injury without training camp or any sort of physical contact at the Pro level and you expect him to make major contribution?

    He needs a full training camp. For his and our sake.

    That's good enough for me!

    Of course, I'm a complete homer. An unapologetic homer.

    Can someone clarify this for me. I thought with the brace to support his leg because of the "drop-foot", Jaylon couldn't cut or do any drills that required change of direction. Could this report mean that he does not need the drop-foot brace anymore? And does this say anything regarding the nerve healing?

    I have not seen anything indicating that he absolutely can't cut or do change of direction. Many players returning from knee injuries don't cut or do change of direction (at near full speed) until well past the point that they could do it.

    I would put him on the field just to let him run around, but not expect much. Maybe put him in on punt and kickoff return unit.

    That's not what he's talking about.

    GroundZero is talking about the length of time between when he got hurt and when his nerve fired.

    He could still cut with the brace. Not as well as before the injury.
