dollars 2 donuts Posted November 21, 2022 Share Posted November 21, 2022 (edited) Not a doctor, not claiming to be and also not judging. I know you don’t fool around with this stuff. They know a lot and I know next to nothing. …now that’s out of the way I was disappointed that they put Hyde on IR so quickly and we’re so concerned with next Bill up and filling spots. Forgive me, but as fired up as I was about the season then to lose Hyde seemed to portend not only other bad luck things for this team in the future, but gave me that same sick feeling when we lost Tre…that feeling of, “I love this team, they’re great, but this one is going to matter greatly with respect to going forward to the ultimate goal.” It has been 53 days since Hyde’s successful September 29th surgery. 8 weeks is Thanksgiving, and the next game would be the following Thursday against New England. I know it’s the neck, but it wasn’t a leg injury where the actual tracking and ability of the skill of the player would be impaired, especially after recovery. Safety comes first. Caution is king. …but medicine and history matter, too. The Patriots game is 9 weeks from surgery. Getting a sense now, weeks later, and then putting him on IR if things weren’t going well given the recovery time wasn’t that long and the risk in waiting would have been fine, but that’s just me. Training camp is going to start roughly 40 weeks after surgery. Go Bills. EDIT: before any responses have come in, respectfully, as you read the above please remember that I indicated you could put him on IR now…possibly even sooner.
