    Unless he has brain damage, there shouldn't be any reason that he'd miss any of the season. It seems to be a head injury, either it's horrible, and will stick with him the rest of his life, or it won't be much worse than a concussion. The missing teeth, broken, etc... are just cosmetic, and hurt his magazine spreads only. If the guy isn't playing by week one because of a head injury, then he's not ever playing again most likely.

    It sounds to me like the "not serious" part is that it looks like he'll live. I don't get the same feeling about his immediate playing future:

    "lost most of his teeth, fractured his left sinus cavity bone, suffered a nine-inch laceration to the back of his head and a broken jaw, and severely injured both of his knees when he hit the ground."

    And that's the part they're telling the media. That sucks. But if you see a picture of the windshield and realize that's the spot his bare head went through, I think just being alive would be both the icing and the cake--a speedy recovery for 06-07 no more than a sprinkle or two.

    Where did that info come from?

    If he hurt his knees, that definitely has more serious impact.
