He'll be well rested for the playoffs.

Yup, couldn't even type that with a straight face.

I thought it was the entire year? That's what other Maners said in the Chiefs thread.

Now it's 6 weeks, then it will be 4, 2 and then 0.

They still have Dee ford, I think he averaged a sack every other year so they should be fine.

Chiefs are going to take a hit in the only thing that matters to their fanbase, the preseason power polls

I can't even imagine the horror they must feel to know their decade long streak of "offseason champs" might be in jeopardy

Possible vs probable....


Too early to tell if he will miss any time.

Still waiting for him to destroy Brady in the playoffs.

Prefer to have kFc full strength when we continue dominating kFc with our new QB.

The timing is terrible for kFc as well, dude gets paid that huge contract and suddenly misses a ton of time.

Looks like kFc has to reach on another Rush OLB in the draft.

Should have shut him down last year. Sold out for that one playoff win. Cost them a 3rd rounders and their best player.

That's going "all in" Chiefs style. One wildcard win.

Here is the thing, he had hyper extended it midseason right? They rest and rehab him for a few weeks then they bring him back and allow him to play on it. He wears a brace and still has trouble and then sits out the majority (if not all) of the Pats game right? I may have that wrong because I was enjoying our SB run and have been rewatching our Playoff games at least once a week this offseason.

So then suddenly in Feb they decide he has an ACL tear and has it repaired.

When did it go from a sprain (isn't that what a hyper extension really is?) to a tear that needed to be reconstructed?

So apparently Dr. Andrews scoped it saw the ACL intact but it wasn't functioning so they decided to cut it out and replace it anyway.
http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/15...on-acl-surgery

A full ACL recovery usually takes players a good 9 months to recover from, he needs to be able to not only cut on it but engage and push off of it. I think 9 months to year for a guy who's game is speed who's ACL wasn't working right after being extended could be the time frame.

The worst part of the recovery is that he played on the knee when it wasn't working right and who knows what that impacted. It was clear he shouldn't have been out on the field and yet Reid said that he was having trouble with his brace.

Had he tore it in week 12 and they did the fix then, I could see him being ready to go week 1 this year but they are a month into a 6-12 month recovery on a knee that wasn't working right to begin with.

I hope he recovers and plays, don't want to hear the injury excuse when we win the AFC West again this year.

Didn't Chris Harris tear his ACL in the playoffs a few years ago and then come back week 1?

Von and Harris both tore their ACL's. I don't think they hyperextended them and tried to play on them a couple weeks then wait another month before having surgery. They had their surgery right away. Plus it took both of them a couple games to get back to top form.

Von was avg the yr after his ACL. He hurt his hand if I remember right and sort of stunk it up.

Damn, feel bad for Houston. Really like watching him play and hope he heals right.

But really how could KC and their medical staff screw this up this badly? Their best defensive player clearly isn't right and it takes months to figure out his ACL isn't right?

Hali - no sacks after 12/06

Terrible job of mismanagement Cheaps.
