Peterson beats Harvin in uphill race

looks like he has recovered to me...elite speed returned

Running in straight lines is nice and all, but what made Peterson great was his ability to stop on a dime, change direction and maintain his power/speed.

I hope he continues to progress, but we won't truly know if he's back to himself until he plays in a game.

running up hill, at elite speeds on pace with Harvin, shows to me that he can put a lot of pressure on his knee without issue, he hasn't lost a step as far as speed is concerned...he will still have homerun ability

I posted a couple articles about how ACL surgery has progressed tremendously in just the past 5-10 years (of course others argued about that with me, or probably just GoBB)

Surgery for ACL repair is miles better than it used to be...technology for the win

This.

Running in a straight line, or even up a hill, is a LOT different than shifting direction, shifting your weight on a dime, etc.

I hope he's 100% healthy, but like Carbine said, we won't know until he steps back onto the field in live action.

You and JMT argued it because I believe if I'm not mistaken he's experienced ACL injuries and surgeries.

There is no it might not have been. It wasnt idiot.

primetime knows...he's all knowing.

I am faithful he will be 100%...he is super human

and he will be a fantasy steal this year, I see him ranked past the top-10 in RBs in almost all net rankings I see because of his injury

can probably snag him in the 3rd round this year

It will be interesting to see where Charles and AP are taken

Can you link me to said articles? It would be much appreciated. A friend of mine tore up his knee ligaments 6 weeks ago playing ball. Can barely walk right now

^^^ lots of info in there about Welker's recovery


Quote:

We should not be shocked by what Welker was able to do just four months after undergoing surgery (and five months after the noncontact injury to his left knee, which also resulted in a medial collateral ligament sprain). Advances in surgical technique and rehabilitation, combined with hard work and the absence of any setbacks, have shortened the timetable for return to activity.

Welker tore his ACL...in just 4-5 months he came back to 100%



now check this out:

ACL reconstruction has evolved tremendously over the last
several years. This evolution has shown us that we have not yet achieved the optimal solution to the ACL deficient knee.

While the indication is generally accepted that an ACL tear in a young to middle aged person should be treated with surgical reconstruction, the specific techniques and materials that are used have undergone
some dramatic changes. Advanced techniques
now allow the procedure to be done in skeletally
immature athletes while sparing damage to the growth plate. Greater tissue testing and donor safety programs have allowed cadaver grafts (allografts)
to be utilized to a greater degree and with much improved safety parameters. Additionally, newer technologies and improved surgical techniques
have allowed the development of new concepts
for reconstruction including the “All-Inside” or “All-Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction, as well as the Double Bundle ACL reconstruction which uses 2 grafts to more closely mimic the native ACL function.


it isn't the same as it used to be...we have come a long way in a short time

Only if you're in a league with a bunch of autistic turtles.

He'll be gone in twelve picks or less.
