Jason Campbel in danger of being hurt all year?

Now I don't know much about this knee bruise injury thing, so I don't know how long its supposed to last or affect your typical football player guy.

But while surfing the web looking for football articles and such, I came across this dude who says he has the same injury and uses the same team doctor and, well, I'll just let him tell it...

By Jamie Mottram | August 29, 2007

mottram-mri.jpgLet me tell you why starting the most important player on the Redskins roster in the team’s preseason finale is a bad idea: Jason Campbell has a bruised knee bone. Let me tell you something else: I have a bruised knee bone. And we happen to share the same doctor.

Yeah, my orthopedic specialist is also the team orthopedist for the Redskins. After looking at my MRI (pictured), he told me that I have a bruised knee bone which needs to be rested for months and, if I don’t rest it, the pain will linger and get worse.

Since then, I haven’t played basketball or tennis or gone running. The only thing I’ve done is play a bit of softball, and even that causes pain and ongoing discomfort, not so much during the action itself as immediately afterwards and for the days that follow.

So, whether Campbell plays tomorrow night or not, he’ll have soreness in that left knee all season long. Waiting until Game 1 against Miami on Sept. 9, however, affords him another two weeks of rest and rehabilitation that’s so sorely needed (get it?).

And if you don’t believe me, just ask former fantasy stud Domanick Davis Williams, who was diagnosed with a “knee bone bruise” last preseason and hasn’t played since.

I got this from here: http://misterirrelevant.com/index.php/2007/08/29/jason-campbell-will-be-hurt-all-season/ (so, like, no one can say I'm just making stuff up and stuff).

What your opinion? Is this guy right? Will Campell be hobbling all year long? And I'll hang up and listen.

Hey Dumbsheet, go back to the ESPN boards.

First off, Williams did not have a knee bruise, he had to have that microscopic knee surgery that not many come back from. The only person I know came back from it was Deshaun Foster.

As for this random post, why don't you go see the doctor and get the story straight from him. For all we know, this idiot could be a brokeback fan, like yourself, and just stating nonsense so he feels like someone is actually paying attention to him.

First of all, I have a hard time believing that this guy has the same doctor that works for the Redskins. Secondly, no doctor is going to discuss a patient (no matter who it is) w/ another patient, thus making me wonder A) how this guy would know that he has the same doctor as Campbell, and B) how this guy would know the severity of Campbell's injury compared to his. Obviously, the world knows about Jason Campbell's knee and the injury he suffered; however, to say that one knee bruise is the same as the next is just stupid. Third, maybe Jason is just more of a man and has a higher pain threshold than this guy. Fourth, I'm sure that Campbell will be getting a nice shot in his knee to help him work through this injury, not to mention that he is getting physical therapy EVERYDAY, which will also help him in the healing process.

I have a similiar situation as the person who started the thread. I had a sports hernia repair, the same injury as Donovan Mcnabb, and the surgery was performed by the same surgeon. Six months later I can not fully participate in my sport, whereas about 8 weeks after Mcnabb had his repair he was fully participating in training activities for football. The bodies of professional athletes are in much better shape and heal much more quickly than those of average people. No offense to Dumbsheet, but I was a swimmer who trained 20 hours a week and I still was in nowhere near the shape of a professional athlete, so I am almost certain you were less physically active and therefore in even worse shape, thus taking longer to recover. Also, the sole job of athletes is to get back onto the field, so they are able to devote many more hours daily to the rehab process, not to mention they have all the latest and greatest rehab techniques and trainers available to them.

Keep sounding the alarm Dumbsheet. Obviously Campbell scares the bejeezus out of you. :laugh:

This is what, the third time you've raised concerns about Campbell?

He'll be just fine. Take note, the post you have there is before the last preseason game in which he played well, with no problems, and no one reported any issues with his health afterwards.

Seems to me he's back to 100%.

my old coach told me that you're a dumb fool if you believe football player don't use illegal drugs such as seroids and HGH. I'm not saying campbell does but I'm sure something is given to allow campbell to play. Morphine is your friend. I believe it was Jansen who went on tv and said most players use some sort of drug.

One thing to mention, a bone bruise and a regular bruise are 2 completely different animals. Bone bruises can be very serious, normal ones, not so much. I was under the impression JC had a regular bruise, if so he'll be fine.

thats what i thought as well , all they said was he had a bruised knee , nothing about a bone bruise or anything like that .. :point2sky
