me either, I just use my knowledge resource (mother was nurse, sister and her husband are ER doctors) pretty much that for a professional athlete. but I'd still go with a timeline of about 8+ months for a full tear.
Since Carradine got hurt pretty much 10 months ago I wouldn't be surprised if we waited a full year and didn't activate him until December. I don't think we'll see a single player on NFI or PUP before our bye week.
The earliest we can activate them is week 7 and that the road game in Tennessee and then we jump across the pond to face the Jags. I doubt we officially activate any of them until after the bye week. Which will allow us the full 3 weeks of practice to evaluate their progress prior to the supposedly pivotal rematch with the Seahawks.
anyway I went way off topic. I think Easley will workout for NFL teams until May 1st because this years draft is on may 5 - 8th. Carradine worked out on April 21st, draft was just 4 days later on the 25th
It makes no season to wait till week 9 if the player is healthy.
If you expect the player to contribute they need to start getting reps as soon as possible. That means activating them week 7 so they can participate in training exercises.
Simply activating them 3 weeks before the Seahawks wont guarantee they're match ready. Neither will 5 weeks but that 2 weeks could make all the difference.
Ultimately I doubt Seattle is even in the equation for anyone on NFI.
