Sure, but if the highly trained medical staff clears the man to play, then he's ready to play. A bunch of people who have no idea what they're talking about saying he should "take it easy" is completely irrelavent. And the fact that he tore his ACL again has very little to do with his recovery time. It was a freak accident. You can't prepare for freak accidents. You just do the surgery, you rehab the joint, you strengthen the muscles and then when you're ready, you play. If he's ready this season, then he should play. It's not up to anyone here to decide how long a professional athlete should take to recover from an ACL tear.


Are you talking about those same people who cleared him to "play" only to have him tear it again, because he was backpedaling? Seriously, there is a reason why people with torn ACL's arent supposed to jump back into action right away.

I hope he doesn't come back for his sake...he rushed his comeback in the spring and got hurt in minicamp imo. Two ACL injuries is bad enough but i guess he wants to play to try and get a contract with TD being a FA in 2011

You're right, his ACL was so weak and brittle that it would tear at the slightest stress, and the medical staff just decided to accept the risk and let him go.

....

No. They would not have cleared him for activity unless they were confident that it was stable enough to go. I'm sorry but I will trust the training staff's judgment over some interwebs people's any day. The second tear was a freak accident. It wasn't a product of him not being ready. In fact most ACL tears are freak accidents--I know people with extremely strong and flexible legs who have torn their ACL's just changing directions. There's nothing you can do to prevent a freak accident.

And theres nothing you can do to change the minds of people who used common sense and said "Hmmmmm, coming back pretty early, seems kinda risky." And then, he gets hurt backpedaling and confirms all of our suspicions.. How many people do you hear of tearing their ACL backpedaling, before they ever had torn it? None. You cant say him coming back early was not a reason for this "freak accident".

I'm not taking sides in this, but just wanted to point out that he wasn't just backpedaling. He was flipping his hips which required him to plant his foot and switch directions on it. That's how a lot of ACL's get torn. I'm starting to learn this stuff since I tore my ACL as well as my meniscus when planting my leg right before making a tackle in practice on tuesday.
