    Is Daunte Fully Recovered?

    I don't agree. Did you watch him play in the last pre-season game. He's got a heavy limp and isn't running the ball at all.

    From what I've heard, he's a quick healer.

    But I seriously doubt he's fully recovered, because him and Carson Palmer suffered some pretty serious knee injuries.

    Culpepper to test knee at the site of his injury

    http://www.startribune.com/510/story/632450.html

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The last time Daunte Culpepper faced the Carolina Panthers, he was hauled off the field with three torn knee ligaments and his playing career in doubt.
    Culpepper returns to Bank of America Stadium tonight with a new team and renewed confidence as he tries to continue a successful comeback with the Miami Dolphins.

    Culpepper, traded from the Vikings to Miami in March, has completed eight of 11 passes for 88 yards and no interceptions in two preseason games with the Dolphins. And the knee he had surgically repaired 10 months ago has held up.

    "I've not looked at that part of it with any significance," Dolphins coach Nick Saban said on Culpepper's return to Carolina for the first time since the injury. "I do think that him getting banged around a little bit last week is probably beneficial to him. Certainly, if that's something that's psychologically affecting him, that would be something that we would need to manage."

    Culpepper, a three-time Pro Bowler, saw his career flash before him on the final play of the first quarter Oct. 30 when he was hit by Panthers cornerback Chris Gamble after an 18-yard run.

    "I just remember hitting him and he was on the ground and hurting, but I didn't think it was bad," Gamble said Wednesday.

    Carolina defensive end Mike Rucker said he is happy Culpepper will be suiting up after last year's ugly injury in Charlotte.

    "You've got a big dude who weighs just about as much you do, and he's fast and can throw the ball," Rucker said. "He has all the tools you would want in a great quarterback. Now he has a tandem of good receivers. It's good to see him come back from that and I'm looking forward to seeing him on the field."

    If he has it's pretty amazing. Hopefully he doesn't reinjure the same knee.

    Right now it seems to be fully healed.. I guess we will see when it comes time to the regular season, and good defenses are blowing by his O-Line.. When he takes a few good hits, then I will be convinced that it is fully healed..

    I noticed and said the same thing the other day Cojo. PeP is for sure, not nearly at 100%.

    He will be healed when you see him make a cut. If you can not make a cut running on turf you are not healed.

    He was still throwing balls low and into the dirt like the Daunte of old, and then making a few nice downfield lofts....his only real skill apparently.
