I have no expectations for Dunta. If he comes back as a first rate nickel back or Safety then I will be happy. Uncommon and unexpected injuries in our short history have resulted in common endings.

Do you guys remember Mcgahee when he tore his knee in every possible way in the bowl game and came back and played his rookie year. It is possible the he could play at the beginning of the year. Everyone's body heals at different speeds

McGahee did not play his rookie season. He was drafted in 03 and didn't see the field until week 6 of the 04 season.

Pretty much. i'd say more than anything its this & physically getting the flexibility in those tendons attached to his hammy & quad back to how they were before......or as close as he can. He probably does feel like he can play maybe b/c he's back to doing the drills he would do in a normal practice. But those muscles are probably still pulled so taut that if he tried to step on a field & play in a live game he'd stand a pretty good chance of rip 'em off the bone again. if these are indeed his biggest obstacles physically & mentally, he could possibly work through those faster than normal with intense conditioning & be back by nov.

& by all accounts, he says he's been working hard to get back on the field.

LOL! I wish you were right too. I have confidence in D-Rob and I expect he and the team to be wise about his situation. It it takes the entire season to get right, then so be it. I'd rather him eventually come back at full strength and not jump in too early and be lost for good.

Just thought that last part was kinda cool.

I saw him walking at All Access, he was not really limping at all, walking a little carefully maybe, but looked pretty natural. I wonder if what you saw is a result of the rehab and exercise? Cool story!

The Texans PR staff has got us so screwed up that a player can come out and say "I could play today if I wanted to" and we all respond with "His career is probably over"

The "likes his Hennessy" and "carry you to your car" comments have me a bit concerned.

Hopefully "likes his Hennessy" refers to quality vs. quantity.

I'm not sure how long it will take Dunta to get back on the field, or if his injury will affect his playing. I do know that what Dale says about the cartilage is true. My wife was a competitive roller skater and instructor. She had a lot of cartilage removed from both knees and they still bother her 25 years later. If Dunta didn't lose cartilage I would hope he could come back at 100%.

Well Dale let us know when he suits up for live contact. Three months ? Under that time line, he ought to be out there today banging shouldn't he ? I'm just guessing here. My guess is if the eastern Kentucky kid has any positive developement at all this summer and fall, they wouldn't be under the gun to rush Robinson back. Further, the contract situation makes the Texan's playing chicken with his injury....just saying. Just let one sail off into the sunset. Tough call. Glad I'm not the one making it.

Agreed - we have a window of opportunity that's going to be opening wider over the next few seasons - not closing like some others. I don't pretend to have a clue as to what should/will happen with Dunta, but if they need the whole year to assure maximum recovery, let's hope they take it.

It would be nice to have him back if we're a legitimate playoff contender come December, but not at the cost of future seasons.

Last night I stayed a a Holiday Inn.......................the biceps injury comparison is like apples and oranges. Elway played with that completely torn muscle for a while, then went to surgery and returned to play in a relatively short period of time. Being able to "control" the pain aspect (drugs in sports are wonderful, aren't they?), it's very explainable...................the strength of the passing motions is almost solely based on TRICEPS integrity and strength.

I'm positive that we'll see Dunta play in a Texan's uni sometime this year. It might be towards the end of the year. But I just don't think he'll be the same type of player. He might have to switch positions or play nickel or dime. He might not be 100% but I'll take Dunta at 90% over anyone else we have on the roster.

How can you be so opinionated and arrogant and yet have no clue what you're talking about?

The difficulty with this injury was that he had to wait for the hamstring to heal before he could have the ACL surgery... so, add 3 months to 7-9 months and you get his estimated time of recovery.

Yeah, since every injured player starts full contact work three months before returning to duty---NOT.

I think it's a shame that a guy like Robinson who obviously dies inside every time we add another "L" to our record will be unable to play through the majority of our first winning season.

I hope he's back in time for the playoffs.

And that's all I got to say about that.

I support the Bennett optimism, but then at the 2nd spot we've still got what I would call nickel-backs at this point.
