Cushing looks good so far, but his injury was in Oct while Posey's injury was this year, just 7 months ago and involved an Achilles. It's only fair to award the honor to Posey over Cushing.

The more shortening of the tendon, the more tension is placed on the repair and theoretically the more difficult and potentially longer the rehab to try to re-stretch and soften and counteract stiffness. Minimally invasive surgeries have also SOMETIMES shortened rehab. We know nothing about the exact details of Posey's findings or surgery to define or predict what his expected rehab would be.

Certainly, Posey has given us reason for some optimism. However, we should still be guarded as to how well he will perform in real games with longer and more difficult routes against starter caliber Ds (all factors placing much more stress on the repair and level of performance).........and then watch carefully for if there is continued reason for maintaining optimism with continued improvement, or reason for disappointment with deterioration of his performance into the beginning of the season.
Sorry, I've given out too much rep in the last 24 hours.

Thanks for the detailed reply in laymen's terms.

CloakNNNdagger, I always wanted to ask you this. Why don't you change you Handle name CloakNNNdagger to THE DOC. I always called you Doc and some other members as well. It just sounds more appropriate to me. Since you are real doctor, I really like to see a sticky thread call ASK DOC. In this way, we all can ask medical question concerning Texans' players health status. I assume you are very busy man being a doctor and I don't know if this is possible but it would be great if you can find time to do this.

By keeping in one thread about medical question, not only to ask Doc a question but we can use as our medical dictionary as NFL players injury happens to a similar area of body ie knee, ankle, foot, shoulder and etc.

Posey made like 4 nice plays for the entire season last year before getting hurt. I just don't understand the optimism and the excitement in the guy. I'm not saying that he can't possibly perform, but I am certainly not expecting it. He wasn't able to wow the coaches enough to stop them from using a late first round pick on a WR. They also grabbed WR's last season in the draft. Other then Andre there just hash't been another guy to have a consistent stretch of production for more then one season. I am really hoping that Hopkins can respond to the challenge.

Because of Posey's suspension we expected it to take some time for him to get up to football speed, even longer to get to NFL football speed.

I was told that he was a first round talent, but because of that suspension he fell. After seeing him on game day, regardless how many balls he caught or didn't catch, I'm a believer.

In my mind, Andre, DeAndre, & Posey are three 1st round WRs.

Then when you consider all the feel good stories about how he stayed involved with the Ohio's football program mentoring the younger players & the attitude he had throughout the off-season & season and all you hear about is how hard he works..... then he has the Achilles thing & he's still chop'n wood.

Hard not to like a guy like that.

You think maybe that had more to do with his medical prognosis rather than his on field performance. CnD was saying he might not play at all this year and may never be the player he was.

I think I was the one trumpeting this horn .... IMO no way does he fall to the third round if he didn't get suspended .... the kid got open and made big plays .... far too often.


I saw him in predraft drills with Justin Blackmon , Michael Floyd , Kendall Wright , A. J. Jenkins & Alshon Jeffery .... He had the best hands of the bunch - By Far.

In that draft , I would have taken a couple players above him at the position , but there was no "greater value" at the position than Posey where the Texans took him .....He was definitely a first round talent with questions to be answered - He has answered those character questions .... Now he has to prove that he still has the physical skills after the achilles injury. If the past is any indication , I cant doubt the kid.


Seems like this kid cant get out from under the microscope ....

I'm sure this is the reason he doesn't want everyone to know he's a doctor, although most on here do by now. He would probably be overwhelmed with all kinds of medical questions and people wanting free advice for all their own aches and pains. As it is now, he gives us a lot of insight and information about injuries to the players that we can't get from any other sources. Besides, I think he has a pretty cool handle and avatar. I always thought he might be a surgeon and the handle was just a play on words. Just a guess.

Because a lot of "DOCs" are just quacks. Trust me I've seen plenty of them the last few years.. I finally got properly diagnosed with cancer after seeing 3 or 4 "DOCs" who had me checked out for breast cancer (damn that mammogram machine hurts like hell, never knew I had that much breast tissue to press.. I gained a new perspective on what women have to go through.. ouch!) and accused me of taking steroids. (Yes what Cushing tried to pass as a excuse... I actually went through) Not every doctor cuts with a knife and performs operations. CloakNNNDagger is a specialist and is a surgeon.. Him holding the handle of simply DOC would be undermining his real rank in his field.

It would be like calling a General, Sarg.

Plus, the handle CloackNNNdagger and that avatar are pretty badass.

Alright man, General it is but Mclame is also called himself General right? However, we need CloakNNNDagger to confirm this. What do you think about making sticky thread for General. This should eliminate General answering same questions about injury over and over. And, we all be able to use this thread as medical info. It is up to General though. Maybe Special Medical Adviser for TTC or TTC Special Medical Adviser would be more appropriate?

Imagine the schooling it takes to reach being a surgeon, I'm pretty sure he knows just about everything there needs to be known about the human anatomy,

I come from a medical family of R.N nurses (sister, mom, grandma) if I had to guess.. I'll guess he's into sports medicine. If you need a hip replaced, shoulder, knee, or whatever.. he's probably the guy to see.

I didn't want to bother him with the issue I was having at the time, but next time something like that happens, I'm certainly going to hit him up, because I trust his opinion more than "Dr Patel" and the 3 other "Dr. Patel's" my family doctor sends me to.
