    Re: Culpepper surgery complete

    How hard is it going to be for him to watch his team and not be able to play? I feel for the guy, I hope he'll be back early next season.

    He'll be back around the time the preseason games begins. 9 months will make it mid August.

    The QB job belongs to brad as far as I am concerned. Daunte can compete with Shaun Hill for the back up role and if he aint' happy with that, I say we send his jiggly butt packing to green bay and get farve and go 16-0 (according to michael irvin).

    [sarcasm om] Since we're winning with Fowler in there as center as well, should Birk be competing for back up center as well? [sarcasm off]

    Re: Culpepper surgery complete

    I,m glad that the surgery went well for Pep.And if he isnt as mobile perhaps it will force him to work on other parts of his game instead of depending on his athletic abilities.Perhaps something good will come from this.
    If winning isn,t everything,why keep score?

    [size=18px]Culpepper has surgery, faces rehab[/size]

    The Vikings say their star will be ready by training camp, but doctors familiar with his injury don't appear as optimistic.

    Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper underwent surgery Tuesday to repair three torn ligaments in his right knee, and the team remains hopeful he will be ready for its 2006 training camp. The operable word, however, appears to be "hope."

    A short news release issued Tuesday night said Culpepper "is expected to be ready to participate" in training camp next July. But recovery time for his injury is generally projected for nine to 12 months, and a specialist in the field said last week it will take 18 months for Culpepper to return to his previous physical condition after so significant an injury.

    As of Tuesday night, coach Mike Tice did not know if Culpepper would be ready to start the opening game of the 2006 season. His condition will be re-evaluated throughout the offseason and in the weeks before camp.

    Culpepper was not available to comment, and his agent, Mason Ashe, did not return a phone call.

    Dr. James Andrews performed the procedure -- which repaired the anterior cruciate, medial collateral and posterior cruciate ligaments -- Tuesday afternoon in Birmingham, Ala. Vikings athletic trainer Chuck Barta, who has said the details of the surgery would determine Culpepper's recovery time, was not made available to reporters.

    Culpepper suffered the injury on the final play of the first quarter in the Vikings' 38-13 loss Oct. 30 at Carolina. At the end of Culpepper's 18-yard run, Panthers cornerback Chris Gamble hit the knee from the side, turning it inward. An MRI diagnosed the full extent of the injury the following day, and Culpepper was placed on injured reserve.

    Culpepper waited two weeks to reduce massive swelling. The news release said Culpepper will "immediately begin his rehabilitation."

    "Daunte is the type of player who is going to work extremely hard to get back on the field," Tice said in the release. "He has the heart of a champion. His motivation to be the best will drive him as he works through this. We are going to be supportive of him, just as he supports his teammates. His leadership and strength are going to be an inspiration as we continue working toward our goals as a team for this season."
