      1. Ruptured my achilles playing basketball and was in a walking boot four weeks after surgery. The tendon can’ t be immobilized for too long otherwise scar tissue will build up and the tendon will become rigid and stiff. Even during tbose first 4 weeks, I was on a on stationary bike building up the calf muscle which is key to recovery. In 2 months, I was walking unassisted and with no walking boot. Took me 10 months to get back on the court for light basketball activities.

      1. Can we suspend judgement on (c) until the end of the 2019 season, Steve….?


  2. “Clay Helton is on crutches after an Achilles’ injury.”

    That’s what Errand Boy gets for trying to walk and chew gum at the same time.

    Helton should know by now that he isn’t smart enough to pull that off.
