Bosa Out Until At Least November

Submitted by cheesheadwolverine on September 24th, 2018 at 8:15 PM

Surprised I hadn't seen this posted yet but Nick Bosa's father said he is out until at least November after surgery and will he be reevaluated then.  It doesn't sound like he's all that certain he'll play at all this year.  First and foremost you feel for the kid, but if he's not 100% for The Game, it could mean a lot especially against our tackles.

Bosa may not return this year if it doesn't heal quickly and correctly.  Sports hernias can take longer for some to recover from. This dude is a freak in strength, which puts tremendous pressure on his core. He wont risk a re-injury if he isn't 100%. He is a lock for Top 3 in draft. He may wait until playoffs or bowl game.

He should not come back this year. I say this 1. because the drop off to his replacement isn't crazy, and 2. because a core muscle injury should be treated with an excess of caution - he could put his NFL longevity in jeopardy if he rushes this. I make the first point to say I'm not just saying this as a Michigan fan that doesn't want to face him. I mean, I don't, but I'd also advise him to not come back this year if he were my son and I was a huge Buckeye.

Maybe I'm scarred by the Detroit Tigers recent history with "core" injuries, but him coming back this year seems unlikely if this issue is at least somewhat serious.

Granted Verlander and Miggy are older than Bosa, but football is also a more violent sport. It took those guys many, many months to come back to top effectiveness. I don't see how he can sit out for many weeks and then be ready to go until, say, the bowl game.

Dont care who is injured or otherwise unavailable.  I just want michigan to win a clean game with whoever makes it that far.  Michigan has lost at least a half dozen Ohio State games this century due to one or two poorly timed injuries, we get no sympathy.

 

So basically, fuck them, with or without Bosa.  They are going to be good regardless.
