<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>pharrow</b></div><div>2 years for bone to heal. about 1 year to feel "normal" on it.
it's the range of motion. It takes a long time to get it back and then you got the decreased strength in the leg.
I agree completely. He won't be 100%. If they were to make this deal, it's not for this year it's for next.
You can add Bonino to that list too. He broke his leg, took him a year.
It's even worse if you have to get plated. You are talking about removing the plates then which is a second surgery and that to heal from the screw removal. Then it only heals at 80% strength on the tissues due to collagen fibers being weaker. What a mess.

But I think you have to look beyond this year. This team can be really stacked going forward. If they are going to make a move, that is really what the aim should be. Because you got Dumo with that same broken ankle on your blue line. Crosby coming off surgery. No Jake.
Do we really think this team is going deep in the playoffs like that?</div></div>

- I am not worried about Sid at all - When i was power lifting &amp; body building I trained with this dude that had the same surgery Sid had and when he came back training in like 5 weeks and he said he felt even stronger in his core 8 weeks after surgery. If Sid played with it torn for the 1st part of season, he is going to feel 200times better.

- Now the jake injury im worried about, the Pic he had on Twatter, was a harness for a Rotator Tear... I kno bc ive had 4 shoulder surgeries &amp; 2 rotators (1-each shoulder) but it could have also been a labrum tear too tho... If its rotator he is not coming back, If Labrum tear, id say 4months tho.
- But no matter what we need to make a BIG move to replace Jake... This team just has "it" this year... IDK what it is but something special is happening with this team to keep winning with all the players missing &amp; IMO GMJR is going to kno that and go BIG.

- I totally agree with u about Zucker tho, I love him as a player... but no way does he come back the same this yr, it just doesnt happen
