We all know how Parker is when someone says he can't do something.
that's why he will be fine, his desire is almost incomparable to other players in the league

I broke my fibula 2 years ago in football and came back even better. why? cause I had something to prove to myself and to others, that I could be better and an injury wasn't gonna hold me back. now just imagine that on FWP, he's gonna be a monster next season! as long as the o line holds up.....

My brother broke the same bone he did playing football as well. Didn't know this until 3 months later when his leg began cracking whenever he moved his ankle. He didn't have any medical treatment and it healed on its own (sheared clean off and it now has the pattern of a lightning bolt vertical-wise haha) and he is even better than before with his cuts and what not. I think Willie will be back and even though he may jump out to a slow start and people here will start saying to bring in Najeh or Sammy Russell, remember what LT did this year and realize by Week 5 he'll be back as good as new. Now, that'll be IF we get a good line setup!

Give him some time and he'll be right back as one of the league's best rushers. He's just got to get more TDs next year.

I have a feeling he is going to come back and actually be better... I don't know why but I think 08 is going to be a really big year for him.

he'll be fine... after a bone is broken it becomes stronger and won't break again in the same place...(ot at least thats what doctors say) so no one should doubt him...

I think he be fine. He is a very determined player and he will want to prove that this injury isn't going to stop him.

Parker is going to be fine, a broken bone isn't that big of a deal.

Actually, he will probally come back better. All his rehab is going to focus on his legs, which will make them stronger. I think we'll be seeing him running through more attempted tackles in 2008.
