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

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
prolly grade 2, he would have had surgery by now if it was a 3 (and wouldn't be able to even walk around on the sidelines without crutches)
