There admittedly may be some stress on Schaubs back foot when he golfs. But, assure it's a spit in the ocean compared to the expected stresses he will experience on the football field........that's not even taking into account the unexpected elephant that happens to increase some of those stresses.
I agree golfers don't go "jumping up as they swing their clubs" but the weight transfer is exactly where the X-Rays that you posted occur. Granted there's not another gorilla hanging on him while he's doing it but as Corrosion points out, there's a little bit there that should translate. Perhaps too insignificant to correlate but I think I would give somewhat of an indication.

Then again, I'm a Harley Doctor, not a people Doctor, so WTF do I know?

What I make of it - They will protect that foot as much as is reasonably possible between now and the start of the season .... when the score starts to matter.

Even participating in 7-7 drills , he's going to be making "football moves" and placing considerable stress on the injured foot. May not approach 100% of game day stress or speed but much like his golfing now - it shows he will be able to stress the foot.
Not arguing on either point.

On 7 on 7 drills, as you have already pointed out, moves will be subdued because there is no "immediacy" in evading the defense, and of course no contact. It will also be interesting how many of the drills will be from the shotgun, which is not all that unusual in OTA's, and would make the stresses markedly lesser. Also keep in mind, even if he does return in regular season, there is legitimate concern with the ligament giving way to repeated real-game stresses, thus dictating further intervention. Not trying to pee in anyone's cereal. Just trying to give some reality to the true challenges that he will have to overcome, not only in the near future, but over the long haul.

I don't expect to see 8 taking full reps, until about half way through TC. Take it slow, and let it heal properly, instead of trying to rush things. I'm cautiously optimistic, that he will be back week 1.


If not, I'm comfortable with TJ playing a few games. With a full offseason, OTAs, and mini camps, I expect he has to have improved some. He seems like a good guy, that's dedicated to learning, and getting better.

Yeh I screwed up. I read the headline at work and didn't think about what they were saying. After a couple hours it came to me that this wasn't any different than what the Texans were putting out.

Sorry.......
