    Apparently today there's some speculation that's he having a re check because he wants to be cleared for practice..

    Lets get this 300 lb party animal playin some ball.

    If we can get this guy back earlier than expected, were gonna have a good team.

    DJ, some clarification please: Part Animal, or Party Animal? Because, well, both could apply. :shifty:

    Not to be a party pooper but athletes are always over optimistic about their recovery time.I will wait until I hear a medical opinion before getting enthusiastic.

    The good news is a re-check today should mean that there will be some news fairly soon about any adjustments to the team's internal timeline.

    Reading between lines;

    Pouncey is optimistic that if he doesn't suffer a setback, he can participate in contract renegotiation.

    I guess its just a coincidence that Satele is signed and now Pouncey wants back on the field quicker.

    Of course he is overly optimistic, but if it means he's back in game 3 or 4 instaed of mid-season like some think, then it's cause for celebration.

    well, I ain't no doctor but I've been around a lot of athletes with Injuries, it's been my opinion off of some footage, and some interviews that he's way ahead of schedule.

    absolutely, after the bye which will mean being ready for game 5 will be cause for a happy dance, anything before that is unzipping quality info..

    Seriously, when are we going to stop questioning Deej when he talks about body type/health stuff? I sincerely think he deserves a guru badge on that topic.

    We can only hope things go smoothly and way ahead of schedule. We need him.

    It wouldn't be the first time a player recovered from a serious injury way faster than they were supposed to.

    I need to see it to believe it. I would be shocked to see him back by Week 1.
    For me, I put this into the same folder where Mike Wallace talked about returning kicks.

    I think we'll know more after things start leaking from the re-check.

    Moving around well isn't necessarily an indication of how the mending labrum in your hip may have sapped your core stregnth. He'll be out there wrestling with 300+ pounders all day. Playing hop scotch on grass isn't going to tell us whether he stands in danger of re-injuring that freshly repaired labrum when he has to re-enact the polar bear fight from Golden Compass about 70 times in a day.

    Therefore it wouldn't surprise me if the general mood out of the doctors after the re-check is still caution and not to rush it.

    I don't think it's a trap, I think there's a real chance he's back after the bye, which is month ahead of what was reported to us by docs and pundits..some were even saying "maybe even longer"

    To make it back by week one you've got to give him a week of contact practice, so that means he has a bit less than a month to be cleared and ready to go...I won't fall into that trap either.

    Nothing has been determined, I think he's excited about how he feels relative to the work he's doing, and the form for which he's performing the exercises, relative to the lack of pain he's feeling, this lack of pain is probably due to the fact that they went in and repaired the labrum, which means it was repairable without just trimming the fat so to speak, some tears are un repairable..

    He's now been strengthening the muscles around the hip, running etc, if he's ready by week one then I would suspect that the tear was as minimal as you can get yet still having to perform the repair, if he's ready after the bye, then he probably had a more average tear but has incredible recovery time from being young and working with great trainers who know how to design a program catered to the injury..

    Not to poop on your attempts to avoid party pooping but you're never going to hear any official medical opinions on Pouncey.

    If he's paying them, then he's already got McKennie beat.

    The most encouraging words you can hear after damaging your legs are hearing your doctor say, "You're never going to walk again".

    I don't get this blind faith in doctors...especially in Miami

    They're used in an inherently dysfunctional way in the NFL and yet they're propped up as authorities, only to harvest that good will and turn around and shoot players up to get them on the field.


    It's the same type of BS hush-hush vibe I got when I told everyone to put Dion Jordan on Gronkowski. A sort of incredulousness mixed with scoffing, haughtiness (yes, I went there) and a return to the pathetic status quo.

    yeah I'm not putting to much hope on that, I just think he's WAY ahead of schedule..we can survive three or four games without him.

    Which to me means we have a chance to do something this year if these players believe in the coach and adhere to their credo.

    I've had three hip surgeries. The labrum is never the issue. If he has a FAI problem they have to shave some bone off to take care of impingements/bone spurs. The fact that he wasn't on crutches at training camp is promising. I was on crutches for six weeks all three times. Then again, I'm just a lowly military dude. Hope he's better sooner than later
