Hankerson will visit Dr. Robert Andrews soon to see if his ligaments have healed enough to where he can be cleared for full practice.

He's been running routes well before and after practice and it's been reported he looks good.

Quote:
On Sunday, he did a series of sprints with a sled and 90 pounds of additional weight strapped to him.

I get that James Andrews is knee surgeon nonpareil (*) ... but am I the only one who thinks it is odd that an outside party is making the "can he practice" decision? Sure, you want and value the expert opinion, but shouldn't this be more of the medical staff's call? Isn't that they're paid for?




(*) SAT word of the day, folks

I was thinking the same...
I really hope this doesn't turn into surgery...

They did the same thing with RG3 and I think they've done it with other players who Andrews operated on in the past, I'd rather him look at it than just our medical/training staff because I think the team doctors are biased.

I agree here, and this also negates the "liability" issue that the team would have bringing him back early. Much better to have the patient's personal doctor approve his return to work.
Although the team staff should have the final say and NOT approve it if they choose.

I've always thought of the teams doctors as general practice whereas Andrews is a specialist. Just like the rest of us go to our general practice doctor and he recommends a specialist who is more experience with that specific type of injury, so do the team doctors.

I don't think of Dr Andrews as "an outside party".. I imagine he's on retainer.. A guy that walks the sidelines during games isn't an outsider..
