thought you wuzn't a sawbones?
Dr CND is without a very serviceable computer at the moment so replies are challenging for him, at best.
And with the old Clowney thread locked -- didn't realize that -- we can't quote his old posts.
But to really simplify it, think of your natural cartilage -- the think layer of white you see on a chicken leg -- think of that as ice: hard like an ice cube and very slippery, but thin.
What is created in microfracture surgery would be, in comparison to ice, like a layer of straw.
The "ice" wears down in all of us over much time(in high level athletes much faster), rubbing down to bone-on-bone that creates pain = arthritic.
The "straw", in comparison, wears away much faster.
That's as good as I can do until Dr. CND returns to correct/refine it.
Well, it's good to see that they don't plan to push him back too early like they did before.
I guess that was how I as a layman characterized the running, lifting and shifting in drills. Basically all the moves without the outside forces from contact. But I'm sure that is foreign from the proper terminology of the medical profession.
But I'm learning more all the time.
Pretty good analogy, Playoffs.
(thanks for explaining my temporary handicap!)
Can't you at least drill some small holes into the old thread, and hope that some of his wisdom will ooze out and, if not subjected to contact for a year or so, form a straw-like imitation of his original post?
LOL Yeah, try that! You'll only do that ONCE!
I like cooking with mesquite tho I wouldn't mix it with other woods
IMO, They should PUP him the day before the Hard Knocks insanity arrives. Take away any semblance, or any inclination to "hurry up" anything.
What would really make me happy, (and I know it wouldn't make anyone else) is if he doesn't even set foot on the field this year. I'm not Cloak, and I'm not a 'pimple on his ass', but given his type of injury/surgery, it would be hurrying up 'something' if he did.
And another thing that would make me happy is if O'Brien imposed a gag order on himself regarding anything to do with Clowney.
I like to use pressure treated pine to cook with. Yummay!
I'm down with that, especially with Texans doctors proclivity for bringing players back too soon. I think HKHT is a no-win situation for JD. He'll be hammered no matter what, imo.
Except his son asks him how Clowney's doing every... single... day.
I can't believe that I actually agree with Marcus on something, but I'm all for this as well.
If he's ready to play, he should play.
The trick is how do you determine if he's ready. It's not like you can look at the scar & say, "Whelp, it's as healed as it's going to get."
The only thing you can do is increase the load at regular intervals & look for side effects... pain, swelling. However, at the onset of pain & swelling, you've set yourself back as the body will have to recover from the more recent trauma before getting back on track for the original trauma.
I do hate it when the warning only comes after further injury.
I don't. It ain't my job. I know the Texans medical staff isn't very highly regarded around here, but along with his Dr., it's their call. If they think he's ready to play then he should play
I don't believe that he'll contribute in any major way this year as he is coming back from major surgery. Hopefully they PUP him and maybe even IR him. I just don't trust the Texans doctors to not screw this up and bring him back too early.
If it meant that they wouldn't rush him back, I'd have no problem with them PUPing him.
