well given the texans track record of signing people who ideally shouldn't be here/back, i think that if he comes back & shows that he can still play @ a somewhat high level, they'll resign him.

There's no doubt though, that this injury may have costed him MILLIONS b/c he's surely not going to be the same guy he was b4 - which was a top 10 corner.

I hope this guy know what he is talking about. Someone on the chronicle comments sections had the following to say

Quote:
many many many players fully recover from ACL reconstruction. It's become a common surgery now. The torn hamstring is the least of the issue Dunta is facing. It's a tough rehab process, but one that Dunta is fully capable of completing. Barring set backs, he should be able to be in training camp next year.

Coach Kubes said Monday on sports radio 610 that he was told that the recovery time was 6 to 8 months. 6 months best case and 8 months worst case.

The trouble with this is....you've got the contract I believe about to expire. By the time you're going to know if he can ever play agian at a high level, the contract will exhaust.

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/footb...s/default.aspx
http://www.usatoday.com/sports/footb...=R&player=3518

This is the third year on a five year contract..correct A.J. ?

At least one year in rehab if you're a glass half full guy (year four). So basically they are going to have to make a decision on him this year. He carries a 2.8 million cap hit. You see where I'm going with this ? Wait for what ? How can they wait ?

You would think the rehab time of a torn ACL would be be effected by the rehab of a ruptured hamstring. Wouldn't the two conflict?

And where the hell is CloakNNNdagger anyway? Is he on vacation in Tibet, or something?

I think that they'll put Dunta on PUP next season and if they have to they'll place him on IR. The season after will be where we really tell if he's still got it. They'll give him every chance to come back and quite frankly, they should give him that chance because he's one of the few players on our team that has earned it.

Emphasis on "texans track record..." part of my previous post.

but quite frankly as someone stated before me, he's one of the few guys on our team who's earned "the wait" b/c we know he can play when he's 100%. The problem is how far will he be from his 100% play when he comes off this injury; 80%, 90% or a shell of his former self.

So I guess that means we won't be seeing Dunta for another 2-3 years.

The surgery is set for today, after that we should have a much better idea of what all needed to be fixed.

worst case means 08 OTA's & Fall camp, heck I'd take that right now where do we sign the letter of confirmation. translated hopefully back to form by mid season or one year from when he sustained the injury

I'm actually really glad that Dunta is going to go and see Dr. Andrews; as he has a well deserved rep of being the doctor to get athletes back on the field as close to their original performance as medically possible.

Ahman Green is going to Birmingham as well, so take that for what it is worth.

So Green is going there as well? Though I don't know what we're expecting. Isn't Green's origional performance... injured to begin with?

I think Dunta is a FA after next season, his agent needs him back on the field playing close to his current level so going to the best for a second opionion is smart. Don't read anything more into that.

Spot on--Dunta just watched AJ get an extension and knows he is now going to miss the big payday he was going to get in February or March and have to come back and prove he can be the same player next year.

You & i both know that while you can come back from tearing your ACL in 6-8 months, you're still a little gimpy for just about the entire 1st season you come back after the surgery. This is just the ACL & not even taking into account how the hammy tear could affect him.

I think if he tries to come back & "prove" he can be the same player & he doesn't do well, or isn't 90% or better, he's going to weaken his case more than strengthen it. I think it'd be smart of him to leave the last impressions the league has of him in their brains pre-injury, take the best offer of guaranteed money available (which in all likelyhood would probably be the texans) & then set up an incentive-laiden contract, making it still possible to get all of what was coming to you pre injury, if you perform well.

Am I the only one who finds it odd that we have heard very little from the Texans, if anything, about Dunta's operation?

I'm really starting to get really skittish that they are hiding something from us again.
