Is that what dished Shawne Merriman, that he needed the surgery but didn’t get it or delayed getting it?

How likely is it that guys come back from it?

You don’t play football on a partially torn Achilles tendon. It would be idiocy. A lot of players have come back from them after surgery, but the movement of an offensive lineman or a defensive lineman really does not lend itself to playing with that kind of injury.

His foot was flopping around visibly.  It was clearly torn.  Poor guy.

I didn't see flopping at all. Also no roll up in the pants, likely not complete. That said that is gonna hurt and he's likely done for the season.
