WILL PLACE COMMENTARIES IF/WHEN I HAVE THE TIME.
FACYSON..............SUSTAINED CONCUSSION LAST GAME.............UNLIKELY TO PLAY.
Green dealt with and played through a knee issue throughout his last year at A&M. It was not much publicized.
Report: Texans G Kenyon Green underwent arthroscopic knee surgeryHouston Texans guard Kenyon Green underwent a knee procedure at the end of the season, but should be ready by the time offseason workouts kickoff.texanswire.usatoday.com
Kenyon Green got scoped. I don't know the implications, but it says he should be good to go for offseason workouts so seems like minor surgery. But Doc can chime in if he sees it differently.
Not stupid! Some specific areas of the meniscus when torn do not lend themselves to repair. But like in the case of Clowney, the excision was performed to try to get him back on the field in his rookie year as soon as possible. Two meniscus trims within a year early in a career is not as benign as Wilson has made it sound in his report.Stupid question but why didn't they opt for the more full repair as opposed to the trim?

I've posted as much detail as I can regarding potential prognosis. I cannot give you the exact time of progression beyond telling you that wearing down of his knee is definitely in his future.Prognosis for Kenyon Green?
Thanks for the insight CnD……Texans may want to add OG to their draft list this go round just as a backup measure.I've posted as much detail as I can regarding potential prognosis. I cannot give you the exact time of progression beyond telling you that wearing down of his knee is definitely in his future.
Garrett Wallow has begun to run now and is expected to be available for OTAs.Garret Wallow underwent a "clean out" surgery of his ankle 2 weeks ago. He originally suffered an ankle injury in a 2022 TC practice and missed the 1st two regular season games. He continued to be dogged with the injury, with a soreness problem increasing around week 9, when he was limited mostly STs duty. After week 11, it got so bad that he had to miss week 12. He tried to play a little outside of STs week 13. but his ankle only gave him more problems leading to only take a handful or less of snaps in each game only on STs for the remainder of the season.
I'm happy that he finally addressed his ankle injury. But my concern is that there were bits of cartilage and other debris that were grinding away healthy joint cartilage the entire time that he was playing through his season-long injury.
I've probably posted ~100 posts regarding the Jones fracture...........a simple search would bring them all up.
Thanks for that Doc. Would you be dubious drafting a DLineman with this type of injury?I've probably posted ~100 posts regarding the Jones fracture...........a simple search would bring them all up.
But, I refer you to a 2006 post re. that consolidates the info.

Typical repair with single medullary screw:
View attachment 11922
Because of significant reoperation rate after an athlete tries to return to playusing the single medullary screw technique (10-50%, depending of study cited, due to the area empirically having very poor blood supply), the newer hook plate technique is becoming popular.

Do I take it by "old post" you meant this one of Tyree Wilson?Thanks for that Doc. Would you be dubious drafting a DLineman with this type of injury?
Edit - nvrmind. I read your old post. Thanks.
I was just curious as Tyree Wilson has this injury but wasn't aware of it until today.
No haven't checked that one out yet but am about to do so.Do I take it by "old post" you meant this one of Tyree Wilson?
I posted on this subject earlier.@CloakNNNdagger I found this article on Kenyon Green being flagged for a knee issue leading up to the draft (as we know that is a green light for Texans medical staff).
Could a health issue cause Kenyon Green to slide on draft night?Will Aggie OL prospect Kenyon Green fall in the draft after surprising injury reveal?aggieswire.usatoday.com
He underwent arthroscopic knee surgery this offseason:
I’m assuming this was a contributing factor to why his combine/pro day workouts were so bad. I hope Green gets healthy. Can you confirm? If so, what is his outlook for a recovery and possibly returning to prior performance?
He had a lot of injury issues his rookie season, in addition to going up against a murderer’s row of NFL DTs.
Any significant additional damage to his knee's cartilage and he could very well be looking at microfracture surgery.Green dealt with and played through a knee issue throughout his last year at A&M. It was not much publicized.
Following that senior year, he underwent a meniscus excision (not repair). This tweet did not make much sense to most, and was really never pounced upon.:
As I've posted in the past, when a meniscus is trimmed/excised (as opposed to repaired), their is loss of joint protection. This recent last surgery was to trim additional meniscus.............therefore leaving less knee joint protection and over time definitely a setup for articular cartilage damage and accompanying arthritis.
Essentially, the above leads to more stress on the articular cartilage and can cause the cartilage to wear more quickly. When the articular cartilage is injured, either suddenly due to injury or slowly over time with arthritis, the joint no longer glides smoothly.
So again, this injury history and surgeries is not what you want to see when anticipating a long player career.
Typical of the TexansIt appears that Metchie was pushed too hard at the time of his initial return practice
Is this the same leg that he tore the ACL on?Metchie has missed the past few weeks of offseason practice following a Grade II hamstring tear he sustained. He will try to return for TC. My worry is recurrence over the upcoming season. Recent studies show that 25% of the re-injuries occur in the first week after RTP (return to play)and at the exact same location as the index injury. RTP should not occur before 5-6 weeks following the initial injury. Too many players are allowed to RTP after a Grade II tear at ~2-3 weeks...they are almost guaranteed to re-injure. Metchie needs longer reconditioning due to his leukemia treatment history. It appears that Metchie was pushed too hard at the time of his initial return practice. Hopefully, the Texans will be more conservative in their bringing him back. Even so, he will be high risk for hamstring re-injury and/or compensatory injury for the 2023 season.
