A few medical doctors familiar with the procedure made very optimistic comments. One said that 90% of elite athletes get back to their elite level.

I say we take it easy with JPP. No point in rushing him back, even with Osi gone. Put him on PUP to make sure there are no setbacks. Tuck and Kiwi are serviceable, but I'm more excited about the rookies.

Strahan said he likes what he sees from Moore, and said he is going to work with him. And maybe Ojomo can finally see the field in the regular season after his great preseason last year. Not an overly quick guy, but powerful.

I didn't read that as optimistic.

"90% of all elite athletes"... including grass fairies and baseball players. I want to know the results for contact sports, specifically for the ones with the 300 pounders crashing into each other in the trenches every play. I can't imagine it being nearly as high.

From the link I posted:

Quote:
Dr. Andrew Hecht, orthopaedic surgeon and co-director of Spine Surgery and Director of the Spine Center at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, who spoke very positive about the potential recovery time for JPP and his shot to play in September.


Hecht says:
Quote:
“When you had a herniated disc surgery you always have a risk of what’s called a re-herniation … it carries with it a 5-8 percent chance,’’ Hecht said. “That means another piece of disc can come out at some point in your life. But that’s not something I would quantify as a back issue. I would not call it a back issue.’’
