Re: Posey tore his Achilles.
From everything I have read this is a 6-11 month recovery time for a highly active athlete such as an NFL player. I would expect him to be back in time for the season if surgery goes as expected with no complications. Getting him back to pre injury form obviously could be much longer. Maybe he can get back to form middle to late season in time for playoffs should we return. Maybe its not all doom and gloom.
CB Leon Hall ruptured his achillies in mid Nov of 2011 and played in every game in 2012.
LB Terrell Suggs partially tore achillies in May of this year and was back in Oct and played in every game since.
