"Re-injure"? I think that's a very hard call for any doctor to make when the nature of the sport is for people of size and speed to hit you as hard as possible.
One thing I know is that the more time you have to heal the less likely to "re-injure."
Sit him this week. He will probably not be 100% even the following week but that is a must win and this week isn't.
