The Pencil Neck,

I originally posted that there could be a less than a 3 week return to play if it were not "impingement."

After Texans Chick stated that Kubiak said the ankle was bothering him for a month and they wanted not to deal with it later, it made me somewhat suspect of the "quick" timing. NFL players commonly complain of minor ankle bone spurs. However, they are typically placed on long-term conservative treatment because even "minor" surgery may result in a not always predictable and longer than expected recovery. Only one month of treatment would be somewhat unusual, unless something acutely occurred, such as impingement. Fortunately, there are ~2 months before TC, and we will all hope that the Texans decision to operate was well-founded and allows him to return by then.
