Again, he could be back based on medical status as soon as 1-2 weeks from the surgery if everything goes perfectly, to 3-4 weeks depending on how he responds postop and if there was any additional damage encountered or sprained ligament(s) involved. Can't clarify it any further with the information available. And, even if all information was available, the possibility of prolongation of recovery due to healing problems can never be entirely ruled out.
What I wonder is that Kubiak sounds hopeful that Jean will be back in short order like Casey, but how much medical knowledge has he truly acquired throughout the years?
Is this kind of procedure common enough in football for a HC like Kubiak to be somewhat authoritative in his assessment after he learned every news from the pros?
