A guy just dropped him. Is he going to play this year in your opinion? Would you grab if it were you?

Say goodbye to him. The injury is too serious for him to try and make any kind of comeback this year. Besides, the Fish are going to suk and there will be no reason to bring him back for any kind of run.

Don't waste a roster spot on him,he's not coming back.Any outside chance that he would doesn't matter because he wouldn't ammount to anything this year if he did.

Boston intends to play this year

Miami receiver eyes November

BY CARL KOTALA
FLORIDA TODAY



David Boston may not be finished for the season, after all.

The Miami Dolphins' star receiver has told family members he intends to play for this season despite sustaining a torn patella tendon last Friday.

"He has no intentions of being out for the season," said Boston's brother, Byron Boston Jr. "He has set a date in his mind where he thinks he'll be prepared to go."

Boston, who had surgery Monday, has been through this type of injury before. In 2002, he tore the patellar tendon in his right knee after getting hit by the facemask of a San Francisco defender and had surgery on Nov. 20. He missed the final eight games of the season, but was able to work out in February for San Diego, the team he signed a seven-year, $47.4 million free-agent contract with.

Nearly a year later, Miami acquired Boston in a trade with the Chargers for a conditional sixth-round pick with the idea he would bolster their passing attack lining up opposite Chris Chambers. Boston seemed to be adjusting to the Dolphins offense well and even dominated a morning practice against the Houston Texans last Friday.

That afternoon, while running a deep route, Boston's left knee buckled. An MRI exam revealed the tear and later that night coach Dave Wannstedt issued a press release saying Boston would have season-ending surgery.

"He heals fast and he rehabs fast. Plus, this is an injury he's familiar with, so he knows how to rehab it," said David's father, Byron Boston. "He has five weeks before the first game, so he'll have a pretty good idea about how things are going before they kick off the first week."

If things go well, Byron Jr. said his brother's targeted return date would be mid-November, somewhere around Week 10 when the Dolphins are in their bye week. That would be roughly three months after the surgery.

Should that be the case, it's conceivable Miami would have Boston back for the final seven games of the season.

"His words were, 'It will be money time. It will be time to make that run for the playoffs, the second half of the season,' " Bryon Jr. said. "He's just really striving to get back at that point."

Following Boston's injury, it was reported he had been cleared to practice in the afternoon by team doctors despite having tendinitis in his left knee. Boston's father said his son "basically made the decision to go ahead and give it a shot," and a statement released by the player's agent, Mitch Frankel, absolved the team of any blame.

Byron Boston reported his son was in good spirits and upbeat about working his way back to the team. The key, the elder Boston said, will be for David to make sure the tendon is properly healed before he begins any type of rehabilitation work.

For an offense that was already dealing with the loss of former Pro Bowl running back Ricky Williams to retirement, getting a player like Boston back in the middle of the season could be a big boost, depending on how effective he is.

"Just based on the previous surgery, when he makes up his mind, he'll do it," Byron Jr. said. "He likes to prove people wrong."

I still say he's not worth it, even if he does come back in 10 weeks or so.
