Then calm down a few, and get that cigar out of our mouth, Marine!
neither are you or the OP of this thread and?
Well I would not compare an injury in the 2020's to one in the 1980's. Technology has improved significantly since then.
I remember where ACL or MCL tears were career enders. Now players routinely come back the next year.
So while yes, Vea's ankle injury was not as severe as Dak's, Dak will get close to 3x the time to recover before having to play in a game like situation than Vea did. And Hurns' injury, which required emergency surgery for the soft tissue damage he suffered was able to come back in 3 months less time than Dak has.
Like another poster pointed out, all we can do is wait. The truth WILL come out.
Can it? Can it really..........
Appreciate the effort and time you put into your post.
Anyone who believes that Dak's injury is career threatening simply wants that to be true, for one reason or another.
There are two different types of broken bones. The fracture which is also often called a broken bone but is a crack in the bone and a compound fracture where the bone is completely broken often protruding though the skin. Prescott has a compound fracture. When I was 14 I had a compound fractured in my arm the radius bone and was in a cast for 6 weeks and then 4 weeks later it was like it was never broken. At that time I could do everything I did before the break. I know my arm is not the same as Prescott's ankle, but it shows that those that have speculated that there's a 20% chance Prescott will never play again said that STRICTLY as click bait.
My wife just expressed a strong opinion.
I called her a hater.
Thank yawl for enriching my vocabulary.
For you?. Yes it can.
It is not the bone it is the ligaments. Dak had a compound fracture of the bone above the ankle and a dislocated ankle. The dislocation of the ankle may have been so severe that the ligaments tore. We do not know. From reports we were told the second surgery was on the ligaments, specifically the deltoid ligament. Read up on that ligament and surgery.
to be fair he was good for one year. I rooted for that guy but he's just not good
LOL... you don't even know me. But hey, if that story makes you feel good, I'm cool with it.
fracture and break are the same thing. Compound is when it comes thru the skin so you're partially correct.
We have all read about all the speculation that has been spread about by sportswriters and even by some here who have a relative who is a doctor but NONE OF THEM have ever examined Prescott nor were they there during either surgeries to know EXACTLY what was done. Whenever I hear doctors explain anything on TV on some injury that they themselves did not do the surgery they end it by saying something like without examining the patient or being there for the surgery nobody can say with all certainty what will happen. One time when I had surgery on my left ACL during the surgery the surgeon noticed a very tiny calcium buildup on my MCL where it attached to the bone and he told me when I woke up in recovery that he cleaned that up too. Now technically he did some surgery on my MCL too but it by no means had any affect on rehabing from the ACL surgery. Without any of the speculators on Prescott's surgery being there when the surgeon did the 2nd surgery on Prescott all they are doing is guessing and could be based on what the actual surgeon that did the surgery and has said is completely wrong.
Actually what I said is correct because a compound fracture does not have to come through the skin to be a compound fracture. A compound fracture is where there is something more than just a crack or fracture and needs to be set. A fracture or just a crack isn't set, it just has a cast to immobilize the fractured bone to let it heal. By the way if you actually read what I said I did say that a fracture is often called a broken bone ( or as you say a break) but is really only a crack in the bone which is 1,000% true.
Point is no team is giving a $175-200M contract to a player who cannot pass a physical. Speculate all you want on whether the second surgery on the deltoid ligament was just a clean up or a graft. Bottom line - no team is offering squat until Dak can pass a physical which includes running, cutting, and throwing. And the team will want its own medical doctors to independently examine and take MRIs, x-rays, etc. Common sense.
Now, when do you think Dak will pass a physical? Before FA begins? Before the draft? Before camp begins? Before the season begins? After FA and the draft is too late to land the huge contract in my opinion.
It will all come down to Jerry and loyalty and Jerry is only competing with himself. Is it team first or is it Dak first? We will find out.
Dak will recover just fine and go on to continue to play at his pre-imjury average level for another team. The injury was a blessing in disguise for the team, he's not the guy and it makes it a lot easier not to pay him.
I think you're confusing compound with comminuted but ok doctor.
