yeah....this has got to be bull shite unless you are wolverine or a vampire or Adrian peterson.
I tore my ACL last year and at 4 months was nowhere near playing...NOBODY is.
Haha, I'm nowhere near any of those, but I did have surgery on Sept. 17, 2007 and I was playing by mid-January. My surgeon did a great job(patellar transplant), my PT specialized in knee rehab, and I worked my arse off. We decided to push it and I only missed one game my senior season. At the time, I was the quickest that this surgeon/PT duo had cleared an athlete. I was out of condition, but it was high school.
Stu will have far superior medical care than I did. He'll have the potential to be training again in 4-5 months, but of course that doesn't mean he'll be going a full 90 soon. He'll have to regain fitness along with getting back in form. Still, it's not unreasonable to hope that he's back practicing before Christmas.
