  1. I get it, and normally I tend to avoid speculation about injuries, but the first thing that came to mind for me was Victor Cruz. I think he had a patellar tendon injury and I don't think he ever came back all the way afterwards.
  2. I did the same thing when I couldn't get the link to work. The game's been so bad, I went back to my google search and read one of the articles about returning to sports after a patella dislocation. According to this paper, 6 weeks seems like it would be a miracle...https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4169614/ Return to sport after nonsurgical treatment "A safe return to sport implies that lesions of the knee have healed and the injured lower limb has adequately recovered to face the demands of sporting activities. Successful return to sport implies: (1) no early re-injury; (2) no further damage to the knee; (3) return to the preinjury or higher level; (4) no limiting pain; (5) still playing after 5 years; and (6) no early osteoarthrosis. A comprehensive return to sport decision-making process should be based upon: (1) clinical examination; (2) evaluation of laxity; (3) strength measurement; (4) neuromuscular evaluation; and (5) counselling with the physical conditioner and coach for professional athletes. As regards the patellofemoral joint, the challenge is that the patella is a sesamoid bone enclosed within the extensor mechanism of the lower limb. Its function is closely associated with dynamic muscle activity while retaining its osseous and soft tissue static elements [26]. Atkin et al. [3] followed 74 patients (37 men, 37 women) after a first dislocation that was treated conservatively. Preinjury sports activity was similar to that of patients with primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury [10]. Patients were authorized to return to sports after they regained full passive range of motion, had no effusion, and when quadriceps muscle strength was at least 80 % of the noninjured limb. Patients regained range of motion after 6 weeks. Sports participation was limited during the first 6 months after injury, with difficulties in squatting and kneeling. At 6 months, 58 % of patients noted limitations in strenuous activity, but no recurrence was recorded. Sillampaa et al. [32] reported that the return to preinjury activity level varied between 44 % and 60 % regardless of the modality of treatment after the first dislocation." Also... "Patellofemoral instability may occur in a young population as a result of injury during sporting activities. This review focuses on return to sport after one episode of dislocation treated no[n]-operatively and as well after surgery for chronic patellofemoral instability. With or without surgery, only two-thirds of patients return to sports at the same level as prior to injury." Scary stuff for a relatively uncommon injury...
  3. Thanks for the confirmation. Good to know for future TNF games.
  4. Happened to me, too. Although, I was trying to watch on the Spectrum app on a Roku TV. Maybe they're playing these mundane Top Ten List shows because it's technically streaming, and there may be some sort of exclusive streaming rights thing going on? That said, the game sounded like a dud...but I'd still watch an NFL dud over anything else on a Thursday night.
  5. Correct. A plaintiff must plead they’ve sustained damages in excess of $75,000 in order to satisfy the diversity jurisdiction requirement for filing a civil action in federal court. Otherwise, she would be limited to filing in state court. The amount of damages sought at trial will be FAR in excess of that, if it gets to that point.
