The best I can do is refer you to post #3 of this thread where I quote a recent study of "return to play" for lumbar discs treated conservatively. Now that admittedly he is fighting this and a calf rehab (since he was never proven to have completed that, with still a high risk existing for restrain of the same or other calf), it is very unpredictable when he will return. If his conservative treatment of his back is not successful, and he requires surgery (even minimally invasive surgery) it is doubtful that he can return before the end of the season if then. There are so many potential twists to this.....and the Texans are not willing to really clarify them, as exhibited by the information we have gotten about them all along. They have continually told us not to worry.......he'll be back in just a few days.
