They'll probably deal for Henry, but if they don't get him, then they'll try to make it with Toefield.

Anyone think that this could be a boost to Leftwich, Smith, and Williams' value?

good to hear the truth about whats been going on with him.

id say with the progress he has made i wouldnt be surprised to see him ready to play by the opener, as long as he doesnt aggrivate it in the mean time by rushing himself back.

well he's supposed to starting cutting and doing a bit more than running over the next couple of weeks, thats when we'll have a good idea whether or not he'll be back for the opener

I played football in college and had the same injury - PCL & MCL tear. It's actually a rare occurence for players to tear the PCL and happens more frequently in car accidents. I actually have yet to have either of them fixed and player 2 years in college without a PCL and with a severly torn MCL. The main thing this injury does is destabilize your knee and make it much more likely to tear your ACL. Also, Rbs have to cut a ton and I'm sure Fred wouldn't have been able to on an unstable knee. The recovery time for this type of surgery is probably a little less than ACL surgery, but I would imagine it will take him some time to recover back to where he was. Several players have played without PCLs. John Elway for example played his entire career with a torn PCL. Most players tear both the MCL and ACL, such as Willis McGahee. I would imagine you'll see a similar recovery time with Fred, but it will take time for him to get comfortable playing with the repaired knee.
