  • Anderson Placed on IR; Juwan Thompson Joins Roster

    This effectively ends CJ Anderson's season. I'm okay with Booker as the starter, but it's tough to lose a talented guy like Anderson.

    I think we all saw this one coming.

    Thompson can also contribute on special teams, so not a bad move for the team.

        Fortunately Denver has some depth. This covers RB, FB and STs. Thompson knows what is going on and has had some success as a RB before. He has been learning a lot on PS this year and now it's time to play. No worries.

          The injury he sustained is gonna take 3-4 months minimum to recover and then he'd still wouldn't be in football shape. It'd be irresponsible of our staff to rush him to play week 17.

            Is it 3-4 months, or 3-4 weeks? I thought they were saying 3-4 weeks.

            If it's weeks, then week 17 is reasonable. If it's months, then they shouldn't even mention week 17.

              I can't remember the exact rules. I think they can put him back on the roster after six weeks and play him after eight weeks if they pull him back off of IR.

                  The surgery is the easy part. The rehab is the hard part. Patella tendon repair is not an arthroscopic procedure, rather it is a simple open repair where the tendon is sewn together and often augmented with suture through drill holes in the bone. The kneecap tendon is well over an inch wide and is larger, broader and stronger than the ACL. The open incision and early immobilization required leads to more scar tissue, loss of motion and atrophy. In ACL surgery, an arthroscopic is used and patients are encouraged to move and bear full weight immediately after surgery thus speeding recovery.

                  The grueling rehab takes a minimum of 6-9 months; however, the struggle to regain explosiveness and full power goes well beyond that.

                    Patella tendon? I thought it was just the meniscus?

                      My bad. Meniscus. Just had a brutal week of exams.

                      Surgeons generally stitch the meniscus back together. The person then is non-weight bearing on the leg for 4-6 weeks. Sometimes longer, depending on where exactly the tear occurred. Total recovery time is generally estimated at 3 months. This is rarely much shorter for athletes because in the 4-6 weeks you can't do much to exercise the muscles. You need time after a couple months of healing to build back your leg to strength it was before. The person/athlete should return to 100% functionality within about 4-5 months.

                        As far as this season goes that doesn't sound like much of a difference. I wouldn't expect him to make it back from IR.
