God bless the Carr family.
Having been to near heaven and back with my son, there is nothing to console. Time doesn't heal that wound and the only way one can mediate the greatest loss in life is to celebrate the moments shared. Honor and move forward with a purpose and a motor driven by the love from life lost.

I've had this surgery on bilateral hips and am a physician.
I won't get into specifics about his case due to lack of first hand knowledge but the injury is very clear (reading the tea leaves with a knowledgeable lens) and won't get better w/ any rehab. Long term damage results to hip joint itself and it's not just playing through pain--but also a weakness issue when the joint is inflammed enough.
Interested parties could probably deduce the injury by researching A-Rod, Ed Reed among others.
It's a tough road back. Symptoms are variable but judging by his activity limitation thorughout the season he's not in a non-surgery option group. What a competitor.
Again, without knowing his specifics, he should probably take a redshirt and get both hips done. I spearated these surgeries out by a year. Early surgery limits further long term damage, advice I should have taken but this is a newer diagnosis and an even newer surgical corrective field from a laparscopic approach.
That's all I say about this issue but good luck Spike. With admiration, Go Blue.

Drake was a big State lean among locals.
Things may have developed.
Ran into JB and recruits at rain break during WMU-UM game and JB/Drake were side by side.

This is likely a MRSA abscess. Pretty common... acquired during game play from artifical turf. Treatment is drainage and abx. This did not inhibit his preformance. Not a big deal. I feel bad for Denard b/c this won't be his last.
(I'm medically qualified to know this. I've been a reader of this site since near inception and cringe at the medical misinterpretation of commentors on this site.)
