    Alright...where are you getting your info from (for your second estimation of time)??

    18 months is about on par..so the guy you quoted is right around the time frame with his lowest and your about on point with your highest..

    Some one tears up his knee in season and has surgery in the off-season..if he is 'ready' by the next season that player normally doesn't have full speed and burst until the following season when he is truly 100% at full strength. This is at least what I have noticed with RBs. And of course everyone heals at different rates.

    their rate of healing improves when they make it a priority

    Yes, but some people just heal quicker in general.

    This is getting ridiculous. From reports on Morgan he is on schedule to have a productive year. He had some swelling and pain so they scoped it and removed a stitch that was causing irritation but saw NO structural damage. So he missed the opening game because of it but should be ready soon. So there really should be nothing negative to report on for Morgan at this point. Again, he is right on schedule with the scope setting him back only a week or so. Considering when he got hurt last season that isn't bad.

    Instead of going off half ed and sounding like a bunch of 3yr olds crying because they didn't get their way calm down and let the guy come back when he is ready.

    As for these constant comments Morgan is finished, could never come back from this kind of injury and all the other ridiculous Dr. Welby wanna be comments remember that KVB had similar injuries to BOTH knees and came back real well and hasn't had issues since either.

    Actually right now I'm much more concerned about Jones since he can't stay healthy for more than a week at a time.

    Wes Welker was about the only player to be up to speed within a year of such an injury. Not sure what he did... but I'm betting it involved HGH, or selling his soul to satan (tom).

    Usually takes 2 years for nfl players to be back at 100%.

    If he were a REAL professional like I'd be if I played, he would have taken an accelerated medical school and diagnosed and removed that stitch himself.

    I saw him in Atlanta in the off-season and he was eating when he could have been rehabbing. ...and he wasn't even eating in an isobaric chamber, he was just sitting at a regular table like all the people that take their knees for granted. :grrhee:

    I'm getting my info from the orthopedic surgeon we have attached to our team, plus a specialist I've been seeing at a private clinic. Not to mention the ACL's I've seen in teammates over the years...

    If you talk about the time it takes for a guy to return to his pre-injury level, that's highly individual and depends on how quickly he trusts the knee to be fine and how much his game has suffered from not playing. But these two factors have nothing to do with the ability to go 100%, which a player can normally do within 12 months (that is not to say pre-injury level of play).

    Now if you're asking about the 3-6 months, that's an estimate of how long it takes to get strength back in the knee once it's healed. It pressumes that the players has done sufficient rehab both before and after surgery. From the cases I've seen personally 3 months is the fastest a guy is back to full strength and 6 months have been the longest (for guys that followed their rehab and lifting program properly).

    In the NFL it typically takes 2 seasons.

    Doesn't matter if their knee is structurally healed to 100%- they're not going to trust it enough to go all out on it, causing them to be slower.

    Well I just read that Morgan had surgery on his meniscus last year and that a stitch had come undone and needed to be fixed. Can't prevent that no matter how much rehab you do.
