It sounds like it is just some torn cartilage. If thats the case, I think a lot of people are blowing this way out of proportion. In high school they thought I had torn some cartilage, and I would be back in about 3 weeks (as it turned out, it was a torn ACL). I would have to guess Jason has a bit better training staff than I would have had, too. It does bring into question whether he can STAY healthy for the season, though....
I can't say people are blowing this out of proportion. Right now, none of us know the extent of the scope surgery. Sometimes those are 2-4 week recovery deals and others they're an out-for-the-season situation.
Last year injuries killed our running game. Now, before the season starts once again, we've lost a running back for an unknown period of time. Any fan has reason to be concerned about that, myself included.
I'm not jumping off cliffs, but I'm not smiling about it either.
As soon as he can bend his knee past 90 degrees, they'll have him on a bike conditioning. Torn cartilage takes 4-6 weeks to fully heal with optimum conditions, but could be played on sooner. Most likely he'll be able to progress as fast as he can tolerate. The primary battle will be with minor swelling and pain.
It was a knee scope, after a minor cartilage tear. He should be on the fast track in the next week to rehab, and I would imagine he should be back by the begining of conference play, baring any setbacks.
this year so not having Jason is less of a deal than when Hicks wasn't healthy. Lets hope that Stevie can stay together as well so Jason's absence doesn't really start to hurt. Lets also hope that Jason Harris knows how to hold onto the ball this year or else that some freshmen can step up and play big. I'm very excited to see Josh Johnson play.
