Default Re: What is the extent of Troy's calf injury?

The party line is 6 weeks recovery from the Philly game which would be this Sunday

Based on how long he has been out my guess is Troy might return for the San Diego or Dallas game

Grade 1:
The muscle is stretched causing some small micro tears in the muscle fibres. Recovery takes approximately 2 to 4 weeks if you do all the right things.

Grade 2:
There is partial tearing of muscle fibres. Full recovery takes approximately 4 to 8 weeks with good rehabilitation.

Grade 3:

This is the most severe calf strain with a complete tearing or rupture of muscle fibres in the lower leg. Full recovery can take 3-4 months and, in some instances, surgery may be needed

Season either craters by mid-December or nobody wants to play this team at full strength in January
