What you describe is the definition of a sprained ankle. You don't need surgery, and stay away from anyone who says you do. Atfl tear will heal on its own.

Can't wait to see all this talent at quarterback. I think his brother is the best player in CFB.

This is going nowhere. NCAA will laugh Sankey out of the building.

Spent plenty of time playing CS at M. Mainly 99-01. One of the original online FPS games. I will trash you in de_dust.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Sorry but this guy's story sounds like BS||
I can't speak for TAMU specifically but I have a quite a bit of experince as a team physician both in college and pros. For every team I've ever worked with, the doc has to clear an athlete. The trainers are there to assist and apply treatment. I've never seen a coach ask a trainer for clearance. They certainly will ask them if the athlete will be able to return, what is the injury, etc, but clearance has always come from the doc directly to the coach or indirectly through the trainer. It my repsonsiblilty and my license on the line if I mistreat an athlete, not the trainers. Even in high school this applies.
With the Morris incident, I believe Dr. Miller didn't actually see the play that concussed Shane. I haven't spoken to him so I don't know the story for sure but I didn't see him get evaluated by the medical team. Hoke thought he came out for a minor leg injury and not a concussion. The medical team never cleared him to go back because they were unaware of the injury, same with Hoke. A minor leg injury wouldn't need to be eval'd and cleared routinely. This is the reason behind installing a medical team member in the coaches box, so that a play is not missed. Believe me when you are on the sideline, standing behind 80 rather larger football players and coaches, it can be hard to see every play and injury. I'm 6'4" and still have a hard time seeing the play sometimes. I also think Dr. Miller was evaluating another injured player at the time and had his back turned.
Unless TAMU is totally different from
USC, U of M, Dodgers, Lakers, Kings, Ducks, Angels, Pirates, PGA, then this guy's story is seriously exaggerated. Seems more like a disgruntled former employee.
As stated by others, it would be legal suicide for teams to do anything other than rely on their physician to make medical decisions on their athletes.
I have never felt any pressure from a coach about allowing an athlete to return, and if I ever did, I would ignore it.
Ironically the only time I've ever been pressured to return an athlete was by the head trainer himself for the Dodgers. I refused to clear the injured player and he was furious. Luckily Joe Torrey is a great guy and had my back. (Turns out the player did have a very serious and season ending injury.)
The point is, it's not up to the trainers, it's the doc's responsiblity.

2 more great future Wolverines.

No still no one has it better than us.

I was on on an airplane with Bloody Mary in hand at 5:30 on this fine morning on my way to Naples. Who's got it better than us?

That certainly looks like season ending torn achilles tendon.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Zordich||
I have a friend who played in the NFL and at Penn St with Zordich and remains good friends with him still. Of course he said he is a great guy but that should be taken with a grain of salt. FWIW, he has very high character, integrity, and intensity. He also has great connections in Ohio that should help tremendously with recruiting. Of note Pelini definitely wanted to keep on the YSU staff. Durkin is the main connection bringing Zordich in. Harbaugh has obviously signed off on it.

I first met Stuart Scott in Allegheny Hospital in Pittsburgh before a MNF. He came in with abdominal pain and general malaise. During the surgery we discovered it was much worse than appendicitis.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||He just checked in||
Now playing in the bowl game.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||In Canton||
In Ohio they think he's coming. Of note, they are to the point now that they WANT him to come. They don't want Michigan to be as bad as we have been. They are certainly not afraid at all.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||I'll be there too||
Don't have tickets yet and forgot my Tigers hat so a yellow M hat will have to do. We are staying for Sunday as well.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||The Masters is the ultimate sporting event||
1. Yes, this is my favorite sporting event of the year. March Madness is great but I would only enjoy that more than the Masters if Michigan won the whole thing.
2. My most memorable Masters was the 1995 Ben Crenshaw after his mentor Harvey Penick had died. He broke down on the green after he sunk the putt.
Greatest shot, Tiger 2005 16th green chip in.
3. I want Rory to win. I'm looking for some younger guys to get behind and breakout to winning several tournaments a year.
My two picks to win would be Adam Scott or Rory McIlroy.

Thanks for creating and sharing those. Now my office computer is ready for football season.
I have a good picture but can''t post it.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Tom Brady is an excellent representative for Michigan||
Getting Tom Brady involved in this program is such a great opportunity. He is an excellent speaker, teacher, and motivator. Everyone I know that has played with him has told me the same thing. I fully agree with keeping him as involved as he has time for.
I went to high school with Drew Henson and played varsity with him (he was a year behind me). When I was at Michigan, my freshman year with football ended nicely ('97). Sophomore year I of course wanted Henson to play because he was my friend, my teammate, and I knew first-hand what a phenomenal athlete he was. I didn't dislike Brady, I just wanted Drew to play.
I still remember the last game I watched Brady play at Michigan. We had made the trip to Miami to play Alabama and a certain Shaun Alexander. We were trailing most of the game but Brady kept leading us back and refused to let us lose. I remember walking out of the stadium after the win and marveling about how good Brady really was.
In my professional life, I had the privilege to train underneath Brady's orthopaedic surgeon and I got to meet him and talk to him a few times as a patient. He is very humble, friendly, and will talk with you about anything. There are many stories about him and Giselle being very kind to all the medical staff and having them over to their house. He remembers everyone's name. I had a Michigan tie he appreciated during office visits and even knew the name of my high school when I told him I knew Drew. He also played most of the 2010 season with a fracture in his foot. (This was not publicly disclosed until after the season and surgery)
Everything about Tom Brady being a hard worker, smart, team player, tough, and competitor is absolutely true as far as I know. I hope he continues to be an asset to this program.
I'm not sure he will have the time to be a coach for us in the future (he just built a small house in Cali), but being around from time to time as a consultant would certainly help.

Marshall was originally committed to Ohio.

I let my patients back to full contact at around 5 months. Usually their shoulder is feeling pretty good by 2 weeks. Takes a lot of physical therapy to get the motion back.

I can't take another minute. I'll just have watch the youtubes when it finally airs. This is more softball than I planned on watching for my entire life.

Pistons taught Jordan what it would actually take to win championships. Bad Boys are my all time favorites. Bulls were a bunch of cry babies and deserved the whooping they got.

Been drinking wine all day in Sonoma. Now on Rochioli Pinot. Anyone know a bar in San Fran that's wing friendly?

Great pass and play by zetterberg and datsyuk

|3 years 16 weeks ago||In for both books||
Looking forward to it. Money flowing in fast.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Technically||
He was correct. It's an ORIF using an IMN.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Fitz was open too||
Injuries very similar. Fitz had an open fracture as well.
Risk of infection is very low. This happened in a clean environment. Usually these are from car/motorcycle wrecks or farm accidents still with quick antibiotic administration have a low infection rate.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Tibial rod||
This injury is very similar to Fitz, open tibia fracture. Treatment is a titanium rod inserted through the knee, across the fracture to the ankle. ORIF as stated above.
With regards the severity, this injury is easier to rehab from than a ligamentous injury (Lattimore). This injury may look gruesome but it actually has a very good prognosis.
I would expect him back next season. Fitz is on track for a return this fall.
|3 years 22 weeks ago||Depends on activity||
I didn't read all the posts but' I'm an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports med. Typically an active 35 yo would get the ACL reconstructed. Under 40 I still recommend using an autograft. Cadaver could be an option however there is a higher failure rate under 40. Unless you are a professional football player, there is essentially no diference in hamstring vs BTB in terms of outcome. They each have their advantages and disadvantages. Some surgeons have a preference based on their skills or outcomes. I personally do whatever the patients wants after they have all the information. I also send all patients to "prehab" prior to surgery to relieve swelling, gain full range of motion and strength. This is essential to a good outcome. Good luck. If you are in Ann Arbor, Bruce Miller is excellent.
