again, it's the location & type of fracture which dictates the recovery time. For example, 5th Metatarsal Base Fractures are among the most common fractures of the foot and are predisposed to poor healing due to the limited blood supply to the specific areas of the 5th metatarsal base.

Okay.  If the location is "ideal"....could he heal in time this season to play?

 

It is so tough to predict.  As noted above, foot fractures are notoriously "bad" for healing because of the lack of blood flow.  That's why athletes have the surgery immediately to put hardware in place.  I had a fractured 2nd and 3rd metatarsal last year and healed without surgery but I was off my foot for nearly four months.  I also used a bone stimulator daily.  Could Henry come back this year?  Sure, it's possible, but I wouldn't want to count on it.

Sounds like he could be back for the playoffs.

Vrabel is such an idiot. Reporter asks if it’s a wear and tear type thing and Vrabel says “injuries happen for a variety of reasons, I’m not sure why you would think it’s wear and tear.” 
 

Sounds to me like someone is getting a little defensive because he knows Henry’s usage is to blame. 

How is a broken bone wear and tear? It's more of a probability of injury issue.

Everyone that knows anything about these fractures knows it's all up in the air how fast they heal.

All teams worry about a QB injury but the Titans have put all their eggs in the Henry basket.

Going to be interesting how they scheme their offense going forward.
