A day after Elvis Dumervil underwent surgery to repair a torn pectoral ó recall that the Broncos were waiting for this surgery to really determine how long Dumervil would be out ó the Postís Mike Klis opens his mailbag with this little ditty:

ďLetís begin this mailbag by stating that based on nearly everything Iíve been hearing, Elvis Dumervil is expected back this season.Ē

I feel conflicted on this.

Does he push it to come back for a couple games this year?
Or does he rehab like a mutha and come back 100% in 2011 (that is, if we have a season next year)?

Hmm.
I don't know about this... everything I've read about this injury points to a very long and extended recovery.

We'll see.

When this season though? He can sit on the PUP list for 6 weeks, but after that he's eating up a roster spot.

He can't even be on PUP though can he? He participated in Training Camp. He will take up a roster spot for the entire time he is out.

Not sure he would be effective enough to bring back mid season just IR him and let him rehab it to 100%

Expected? He had surgery yesterday, has had no rehab, and he's expected back? GTFOH.

The training camp PUP is different than the regular season one. You put a player on the preseason PUP so that he doesn't eat up one of your 80 roster spots while he's recovering from off season injuries, conditioning, whatever.

You can put a player on the regular season PUP all the way up to the start of the season. The Broncos did this with Carlton Powell a couple years ago. Thus, there really is no reason to put him on IR until week 10.

The problem is, come week 10, Dumervil will have to be either put on IR or take up one of the 53 roster spots. It gives them quite a bit of flexibility, though. If at that point the Broncos have any shot at making the playoffs, Dumervil conceivably could only be a week or so from returning if Klis is correct.

With our 3 trick pony at QB, and 7 RB's, we need a roster of 65.

Sounds like Doom's surgury went well tho.

He should go on IR regardless.

I would have to agree....is it worth it to push it and risk re-injury. Plus all of the things out there about how intense and long the rehab is to get it close to normal is long....IR him and hope others pick it up!

Get back in the building Elvis.
Here is how I look at things:
If we are looking good toward the end of the season(bearing no collapse), I think we bring him back in time for the playoffs. If we are garbage and season is slipping away, keep him healthy for next year. Probably a no brainer

That's my thinking as well. What could it be? The doctor got in there and discovered it was only a partial tear instead of a full rip?

I took it to mean that they found less damage than they were expecting once they got him opened up. I know they said that they couldn't tell how bad the tear was from MRI alone. I will take it as good news :thumbs:

At best I agree, that's that conclusion you have to come away with. theough to predict when he'll be back at this point, even in a general sense, is nonsense.

Unless he is absolutely 100% I hope they keep him off of the field this season. No reason to make a bad short term situation into a long term disastrous one.

A player cannot go on the active PUP list once he practices. If a player is put on the reserve PUP -- he must miss a minimum of the first six weeks of the regular season.

EDIT: I found this:

And one of the most important rules, a player must be on Active PUP in order to be considered for Reserve PUP.

Looks like Dumervil is not eligible for the reserve PUP list.

I think missing six games is a pretty conservative estimate.

This news sets some of my nerves at ease. I think it's easy to be skeptical of this news, but I presume that the information is coming ultimately from the doctors (albeit through surrogates). What satisfies me the most is that it means that Elvis is going to be working hard to get ready this season, instead of sitting back watching his teammates, expecting that he won't see the field until next season.

I'm going to look forward to every progress report we receive on him.

Thats what I say! If he misses 2010, he won't be back til 2012 cuz it'll be nothin but scabs & scrubs in 2011. Tape him up & put him out on the field!

They need to to change the IR rule and make it something similar to what baseball has with the disabled list.

At this point I don't care if it's next week, next month or next year - I just want, when he comes back, Elvis Dumervil to be Elvis Dumervil. If they think he can be healthy this year, that's great - I'm just terrified we will never see that same player again (if not because of the injury recovery, the mental side of everything).

Same goes for Clady.

When this season though? He can sit on the PUP list for 6 weeks, but after that he's eating up a roster spot.

and that can go to another punter spot. You never have enough.
So we all thought Dec 1st. Was that too premature to hope for? We are doomed without Doom.

That makes sense. No way do I see him or even want him out there in the REGULAR season.

I was looking for any history of this injury and a comeback history. The only thing I found was an OL from Seattle last year who tore his in week 1 and didn't play the rest of the season, granted he is gaining about a month on the guy, but I dunno. The NFL injury rules suck with the IR ruling a guy out for the year.
