hoskins Posted May 29, 2009 Share Posted May 29, 2009 I really hope that this is true and the Kelly is able to be a big part of the offense this season. I think this kid is going to be huge if he can get over this bad knee. That's a huge IF. That's like saying I could be a great receiver if I could get over the fact that I'm 38 and I run about a 4.3 20. Meanwhile, while we screw around with this critical flaw (WRs really do need knees), that means he's taking someone else's reps and potentially someone else's roster spot (if he's not put on IR). And knowing this team, I can see them trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's knee for 3-4 years before finally throwing in the towel. That's what worries me. Again, I hope we get ourselves a miracle. But from what my doctor friend's tell me, Kelly at this point after this type of procedure is more of a long shot than even Mike Williams is. And as someone else has pointed out, the new cartilage is not the same as what was there originally so even in the best case it will break down within a couple of years of NFL abuse. That's best case, assuming he even gets on the field for 30+ games. There's a good chance we won't even see that. Hey, but look at the bright side, at least Kelly has a better shot to contribute to this team than this year's 2nd round pick who is now a Dolphin.
