I'd love to see him back, but those knees have to last longer than next season.
Good for Tre. There is still a mystery around what actually was going on with his knee(s), and this is the first hard evidence that he is still working to get back.
That is exciting to me, because I still think the kid is really, really good.
Looks like he has a tough road ahead of him. I wish him luck, he could be a really good one.
Man, that first run made ME hurt just watching it!
First impression i had is that kid should hang it up and think about his body long term. Great kid with grit but there is life after football.
Why? We don't even know what his injury really was. Knee surgeries are fairly common these days, and plenty of players return from them stronger than ever.
It looked like me trying to get the trash to the curb before the truck comes by for the pickup.
Completely agree. Really liked what I saw early last year and was taken aback by the staff's comments on his knees after he went out. How do you know the kid has knee issues and give him the ball 30+ times in a game? Confusing.
That struck me as beyond stupid. The comments made me think he’s arthritic, which is tragic if true. He showed strength, speed, vision and the ability to elude. He looked like the complete package.
Depends on what type of injury. Ligament damage is one that can be repaired and often better. However if it is degenerative cartilage damage that is a different story. I had one that needed to be scoped 3 times before I eventually had it replace at age 46. I hadn't had any problems until I was in my 30's. Early 20's is awful early to be dealing with cartilage issues if it has been ongoing.
if i am not mistaken it has previously reported that he has chronic knee problems and MR stated his knees where worse that those of an old man to begin with. I don't proclaim any medical knowledge of his condition or what can be medically done for him but doesn't sound like constant football pounding is a remedy to me.
The constant football pounding isn't healthy for any of them. He and his doctors can make a grown up decision. We literally have no idea what the diagnosis or prognosis is.
They said something like that, but they also said he wouldn't need surgery. In fact, they claimed it wasn't something that could be fixed surgically. Then all of a sudden he's having surgery on it. If it couldn't be fixed surgically, why go under the knife? If it was something that COULD be fixed, why didn't they do it sooner?
The whole thing was very strange, and I feel bad for Bryant being caught in the middle of it.
Like the diagnosis/prognosis now...we don't know what it was then. Maybe it evolved. Maybe (very likely) we weren't given the whole story...which is fine.
