@hjam72 says: I don't trust anything the Texans say regarding injured players that are supposedly ahead of schedule with their recovery....and I've never heard of @briancushing56, but I'd sure like to have a healthy Brian Cushing on the roster.

At some point wasn't Dominck Davis ahead of schedule?

I'm pretty sure Tony Boselli was ahead of schedule for a while too.

Early status seldom gives you the most important information. With this injury, it will be closer to the 6-9 month period in the rehab when more grounded information going to the state of performance recovery will become "legitimate."

If there is genuine truth to this report, at ~3 months, all it could mean is that he has had not complications such as infection or inordinate scar formation, and that the range of motion in his knee has been managed to return to pretty well back to normal. At this point in time rehab would be concentrating on strengthening all the muscle groups around the knee joint, as the muscles would not now be expected to be back more than 60-75% under the best of circumstances.

Should be able to go after the bye week. Everything is checking out, able to go in practice, but just want to make sure they're 100%.

Texans | D. Davis placed on IR

Sat, 02 Sep 2006 10:57:15 -0700

HoustonTexans.com reports the Houston Texans have placed RB Domanick Davis (knee) on Injured Reserve, ending his 2006 season.


Texans | D. Davis changes name

Mon, 01 Jan 2007 21:41:31 -0800

The Associated Press reports Houston Texans RB Domanick Davis (knee) has changed his name to Domanick Williams. Davis was the last name of the father of his older brother and he said he never felt right about having the name. "I had to do it and it was time. I didn't want my kids to grow up carrying something else that I'm really not. I felt like it was the perfect time for me to do it. Come back fresh, come back new," he said. He chose Williams because it was his mother's maiden name. He will also change numbers from No. 47 to No. 31. Williams, who is recovering from a knee injury, said he is not 100 percent yet. "I wouldn't say I'm 100 percent, but it's close. It's on its way and it's going real good. My knee is allowing me to lift heavy weight without swelling up and that was the biggest problem I had."

Texans | D. Williams injury update

Thu, 22 Feb 2007 11:26:05 -0800

Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith, during the NFL Combine, said RB Domanick Williams (knee) is entering the strengthening phase of his rehabilitation process. Williams spent the 2006 season on Injured Reserve.

One month later he was released by the Texans due to a "setback" that would require further surgery.

The doom and gloom. Lets just take it at face value. Getting him back 100% is the most important "aquisition" of the offseason. When Cush says he will be back better than ever, I believe him.

Want to bet that Poseys surgery went well and soon he will be ahead of schedule as well.

BTW, Schaub is a top 10 QB according to BoB. LOL

Default Re: McNair: Cushing "ahead of schedule"

Brian Cushing told the Houston Texans' team website in mid-April that he is preparing to be "110 percent" in time to have a career-best season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament early last October.
So far, so good. Owner Bob McNair said in February that the team's best linebacker was "ahead of schedule" in his rehabilitation. Now, head coach Gary Kubiak says Cushing is "champing at the bit" to get back on the field.

"I'm watching him today, he sure looks like he's ready to go," Kubiak said Monday, via HoustonTexans.com. "I know that it's not time to turn him loose yet, but he's come a long way."

The Texans will continue to exercise caution with Cushing's knee throughout the offseason, but he's on track to participate in training camp. He will be nine months removed from surgery by early August. Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson needed just eight months of rehabilitation before the start of his historic 2012 season.

Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips desperately needs his defensive leader back at full strength this season. Phillips' defense fell off sharply when Cushing went down, surrendering 25-plus points in five of the last 11 games after not allowing it to happen once in the first five.

Default Re: McNair: Cushing "ahead of schedule"

Counting on Cushing to be 100% is naive imho. He's coming off a major surgery, a surgery we know sometimes take 2 years to fully heal if it ever does. I expect him to play but I don't expect him to be what he was. I'm worried that the Texans are not apparently worried about him. That's why I'm surprised that the Texans didn't go after a couple of veteran ILBs. Maybe they will before training camp opens and after the teams cut some of their vets.

It's not the injury recovery I'm worried about. It's his strength rehab. Cushing's game relies on speed and physical dominance. If his strength is off, he's off.

The most cited NFL ACL arthroscopic repair study analyzed the data for 31 RBs and WRs with 33 ACL injuries. Of the injured players, 21% (7 of 33 ACL injuries) never returned to play in another regular season NFL game. Of those that did return, most players returned to action 9 to 12 months (not to peak performance) after an ACL injury.

For those players who returned to NFL action following an ACL injury, performance fell by 1/3. A "power rating" was assigned for every player in every season, defined as a weighted sum of total yards and touchdowns, likely the most important statistics of RB and WR performance. The power ratings for the 3 seasons prior to ACL injury were compared to the power ratings for the 3 seasons following ACL injury.Power rating per game played decreased from 9.9 pre-injury to 6.5 post-injury. This decline in player production was statistically significant when compared to the 146 players in the uninjured control group.

Knee pain, stiffness, loss of strength, deconditioning and reduced proprioception (the sense of knowing where your leg is) may all be factors explaining the loss of production in players after an ACL injury. Keep in mind, bottom line, no ACL reconstruction technique perfectly recreates the complex anatomy and composition of a person's ACL before injury, the most critical factor in the inability for most to return to pre-injury performance level. A player's recovery such as Adrian Peterson still remains very much the outlier.

My daughter had her ACL replaced last year, by the Texans team doctor (or one of them). It was actually the second time she had it done as it was originally repaired 3 years prior.

According to the Doc, there had been improvements in the process which should increase success rates & help our athletes return to pre-injury form.

Of course, I thought he was just selling us a bill of goods. Man don't get paid unless we agree to re-do a procedure that just failed. However, when I saw AD go off in 2012, I started to believe there was some truth to what he told us.

Do you know of any improvements in reconstructive knee surgery?

Some improvements have been made in rehab protocols. However, due to the unique shape of the ACL (it is not simply a straight strip like most ligaments), multiple attachments, and multi-directional functions of this ligament, there has never been developed ANY technique that has been able to recreate it anatomically in any true semblance. And there within lies the obstacle.

Also keep in mind, not all ACLs are the same. They can be partial or purely isolated complete. Or as many times is the case involve numerous other structures such as the collateral ligament(s).......medial (MCL) and/or lateral (LCL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), medial and/or lateral meniscus (cartilage)............all these factor into the difficulty and length of recovery as well as the ultimate level of recovery. Even if it were an isolated ACL, AD's recovery still remains remarkable and an exception. Hope this answers your question and doesn't confuse you more.
