We should find out one way or the other the next eight weeks what his progress is.

If the no pain part is actually true, that sounds good, actually it sounds great, but color me skeptical as the team has a history of putting a positive spin on injuries and then the old "Woops can't go" thing jumps up.

I think he will be back the human spirit is something people can't measure and the way it's looking he may be back maybe not as a stater in the beginning but eventually he will work his way into the lineup some point during the year. I just want the guy to make it back since so many people want to move on without him, I am praying he make all the way back and then some.

Keep in mind that with the type of extensive injuries which include the joint bone and cartilage surfaces and their surrounding joint support structures, straight shot running is only the bare minimum requirement for return. How his knee joint responds to hard lateral stresses will be the real key. No matter what position on the line Spencer is anticipated to fill, his ability to hold up to lateral movements against significant resistance is what will be the key limiting factor, especially in the lateral "sweeping" techniques required of the OL in the ZBS.

Sobering reminder about what's really ahead and the kind of challenges young
Mr. Spencer has in the 2008 season.
All of us are of course pulling for him and he's in our thoughts and prayers.
In the meantime, we fans should probably adopt an attitute of low expectations and hope for a pleasant surprise.

He's down in the 320's now, he dropped a little below that right before he started to work out heavy again so he could replace the "fat" pounds with muscle. He has no doubt he'll be back, his mind is right and that will help tremendously to get his body back right...You guys don't give up on ole #77!

Good to see you posting again, thanks for the update. I saw his weight had ballooned on the web page, they had him around 350lb this last season and that is to high IMO. Hearing he is running and has his weight in the 320's is a good thing to hear. I am pulling for #77.

Default Re: Charles Spencer Vows to Return

Since we are unsure of Spencer's availability to play LT, and we are not 100% sure who will be the LT of the future, I was wondering people's thoughts on possibly moving Pitts back out there. Of course, it is based on a few contingencies, such as not drafting a LT, finding a suitable replacement at LG, etc. However, I have been thinking about that and was wondering other's thoughts.
