Move him to IR and rehab him all season, no point in wasting practice time and a roster spot on an injured player, has to be some body on waivers right now. Besides Braylon, Josh, and Teddy will do fine, we can win with out him, better to have him 100% healthy for the rest of his career, than banged up all the time!
I don't think he needs to go to IR and take all season, but it may take another 3-5 weeks for this bone to heal fully.
I was concerned when I heard he went from a walking boot to running full speed in less than two weeks. That is not the typical pattern required for this kind of injury to the foot. 4 weeks would be a more realistic time frame. His foot had been immobile and certainly lost some tone and strength, thus putting even more pressure on the skeletal structure.
Shut him down for at least 10 days and re-visit it. We do need him but not at the jeopardy of re-injury.
I'm no Dr, but i think it is just pain from being inactive for so long. Kind of like when you work out for the first time after a month or so off.
I know IR sounds drastic, but Crabtree is young, and hope to see him at top productivity for years, I'm no Dr. either, but rest it, let it heal. I just get the feeling Dingle Berry and company, rushed him back in an effort to save their own hides, and have just made things worse. These guys are pure bad asses, and will play with massive pain, but that is not always best for the team in the long run.
