Re: No help for Vince Young
First, a torn quad tendon can not be fixed by arthroscopical surgery - so lets get off each other's back about the spelling and what not...
Second, the procedure can usually be performed as an outpatient or overnight stay. Of course it will need to be immobalized for approximately 6 weeks - but can vary from patient to patient - with several weeks of re-hab.
Third, the injury prognosis is similar to that of a hamstring in that if it is not healed 100%, the person is at a great risk of re-injuring it - but if the injury is healed 100% the patient should regain all mobility and movement...
Given that, and the fact that Green did okay last season and came into camp this season in the best shape of his life, I would say that we should be in pretty good shape (knock on wood).
But lets also remember - thats why they play the games. Green could get hurt, LenDale could lose 67 pounds and lead the NFL in rushing. We will just have to wait and see.
