    Dr. Kaplan believes it won't be healed.

    Agree. When it happened I was shocked that it didn't break. That kind of injury is 3 weeks, minimum.

    Cmon guys everybody knows the Patriots are tricky. They planned this ahead of time by telling Gronk to get up limping after he was tackled just to trick us. Man are they good!

    news flash. its a high ankle sprain....I assume he's a very tough man.... however a 2 week recovery for this type of injury is not anywhere near ideal .....would be a bit surprised if he didn't suit up and give it a shot at least though come gameday.....will be 50% at BEST.....2 catches for 25 yards at BEST..... his position is simply too demanding to be effective after only 2 weeks....don't think its possible to state how much this injury will shift the advantage to Perry calling his plays out there as this game wears on.....He will be able to be covered 1-1 something that hasn't happended all year when healthy... branch, welker, and hernandez will be greatly affected by this also.....brady hits the ground repeatedly.....I hate to sound ****y but I see our GMEN winning.....

    "Athletes will typically return to play within 6 weeks, but about half will experience symptoms for up to 6 months.".... Look at what happened to Big Ben and Adrian Peterson. Big Ben looked terrible and couldn't even step forward in the pocket as he was a statue. And Peterson needed time to heal as well as he missed a full month. The only way to heal it is to keep it in the boot and don't move it. If he practices on it, he will only make it worse.
