Sorry, but I just don't get all the love for Childs...kid has torn both patellas TWICE! And, from what I remember, wasn't hit at all either time. That sounds like some sort of permanent issue to me.
Sure, great work ethic, good story, I hope he miraculously recovers! But, realistically, I wouldn't count on it, and I think he may be best off taking another year to rebuild the muscles etc around his fake/cadaver parts.
Has he even resumed practicing yet? I'm seeing questionable for start of camp...?
