    Good read.

    A Healthy EJ is a beast and it would be great to see him back on the field, hopefully though he takes his time and doesnt rush as i like Brinkley and have no qualms with him filling in till/if/when EJ is fit.

    I'm no doctor, or saint, but I wouldn't call that a miracle.
    I would think a broken bone is easier to come back from than a joint or muscle.
    In any case it's great news and hopefully he can return to pro-bowl form this year.

    It will be a miracle in my mind. How he wont live in pain everytime somebody runs into that leg is beyond me. A broken arm is one thing but he broke his femur. A friend of mine broke his femur playing football in the seventh grade and he still has pain at times and he is 34 now.

    Power to ya E.J. :cheer:

    I'm pretty much both!

    A broken bone is usually easier to recover from than joint or ligament injuries.
    But this bone is a tough recovery because there are so many possible complications.
    To perform at the level of a professional athlete may not be miraculous but is certainly remarkable.

    Re:E.J. Henderson: A Miracle so far

    Obviously it's great to hear he seems to be making it back just fine. I hope he makes it back to his form from early 2008, as personally I thought last year he was a little less aggressive and dominant than he was the year before.

    I have a question too for any doctors out there (jargomcfargo?) and anyone that might know the NFL substance rules well. I'm curious if in a case like this it would or would likely be helpful for EJ to use performance enhancers (steroids?) that might be banned by the NFL? And if so, does anyone know if the NFL allows this type of thing with a doctors order/prescription?

    It seems like lots of guys that have tested positive in the past have come out and said they used banned substances to help come back from injuries. Hearing how fast EJ is coming back, the thought crossed my mind, and I'm not sure it would be a bad thing if it actually was helpful health-wise.

    It's a good thing too, or come September 9th EJ would tear your head off.

    All indications are that he is way ahead of schedule on a injury that could have been one that ended his career.

    I mean seriously, a rod had to be inserted. WOW.

    I marvel each and everyday at what doctors can do with respect to healing us and I know one who also makes a mean bottle of wine.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
