He's going to be warming my bench regardless, but if, lets say worst case scenario, he misses 1/4 the season due to this injury, he'll only come back fresher than ever. Dwilliams has stated numerous times how much he leans on Jstew for success. They want to run together and they will.
What if he opts for surgery on his heel?
They got good backs in Carolina and they really don't need him at all this year. If it comes down to a career decision where surgery on his heel is what doctor recommends, I'd like to know why he wouldn't take the surgery route.
If you made the mistake of drafting this guy for whatever reason there is no need to go super-optomistic and start quoting how much DeAngelo Williams wants to run with JStew. That has nothing to do with how much JStew will play this year. One of 3 things will happen:
1) He comes back and they slowly work him in, giving him a small load for the first few games, then exploding towards the 2nd half of season (decent)
2) He comes back and re-aggravates the injury b/c he has a heel problem. (bad)
3) Doctor recommends surgery and he's out a long time. (bad)
4) He comes back, but just doesn't produce, unable to make the same cuts as he's used to. (bad)
Not really attractive imo.
