Zero in on Bar Eagles first. There will be plenty of time after going 8-0 to talk about the gumps. Would be sweet to take both colleges from Bama out in the next few weeks. Auburn first

The surgery is less effective than 3 months of rest, then rehab (but better than duct tape)

Gump Antler Spray does the trick. He'll be better than ever. will end up looking like derrick henry though.

Seldom have I seen or heard of someone having surgery on an ankle sprain

It’s called a tightrope procedure. They basically put bands around the tendons to help strengthen his ankle. Rehab time is usually 4-6 weeks.

It’s not just a band around something. They drill through the bone and place an anchor. This is real surgery. Don’t see how you could safely be back running in 2 weeks...but Saban doesn’t care about his players long term health.

He’d better be well in time. Daddy is popping that belt in his hands.

Thank goodness they play high school teams the next couple of weeks or the NCAA would have to cancel the season

Has the UT player been prosecuted yet? Or has his family received death threats? This is Bama we are talking about here.

He was walking better than Justin Jefferson did when he hurt his ankle at Vanderbilt. Tua will not be out long if at all.
