How long before Cush gets his game strength back...? Another month? Half the season? Next year?
Correct as pertains to what I see in Foster.
As far as Cushing, 12 months [notwithstanding the "miracle" early (still 9 months
for return to first game play) and strong Adrian Peterson] is still the more reasonable mark to better assess his progress (~1 1/2 months from now). By then it is more likely that he will regain more lower limb strength. It may take up to 2 years to make a final assessment as to how far he CAN come back. I know that all the box jump videos and the like seem impressive and get everyone's blood stirring, but in the big picture, it serves as a good show, not a reflection of prediction of on-field return performance coming back from an ACL.
