There are enough folks still pining away over the Bus' retirement that that is going to happen regardless of what FWP does next season anyway.

Willie will be just as good if not better next year. The Fibula (the smaller bone of the lower leg) does not actually support any weight in the leg; it serves only as an attachment scaffold for connective tissue and muscle. Considering that and the fact (as somebody mentioned above) that bones usually heal to a point to where they are stronger than before the break, Willie will be in good shape to pick up where he left off and win the rushing title next year!!!

Hopefully his fumbling and lack of TDs will get healed too.

Willie will come back gunning for the running title he was on the way until his injury.

It's a broken bone, not a torn ligament.

Willie will be fine. *Knock on Wood*

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.


I agree if we improve on the OL. If not, Jim Brown can't run behind our OL.

Not just that, preparing to win the 2008 Season Rushing Title and Comeback Player of the year.
